North Adams RMV Reopening For Drop-Off Services
The Registry of Motor Vehicles office In North Adams has reopened Today, Monday, Aug. 24, for drop-off registration and title services.
Iberkshires.com reports that the local branch of the RMV has been closed since March as the state shifted operations online and postponed or extended deadlines during the novel coronavirus pandemic. The North Adams branch is one of eight locations being used for drop-off paperwork that can be completed within several business days.
Because of capacity, safety and public health limitations for maintaining social distancing, general appointments will not yet be available for customers at the North Adams Service Center.
Registration Drop Off Centers are dedicated to performing a number of vehicle-based registration and title services for both commercial and individual customer transactions on a drop-off only basis. Customers choosing this option will be able to drop-off appropriate paperwork for processing within a few business days.
Registration renewals will still be conducted exclusively online or by mail for individual customers. Customers will continue to be able to make appointments for certain vehicle-based registration and title services up to 14 days in advance.
How Does Drop-Off'Registration and Title Service Work?
Customers in need of one of the services listed below should compile and complete all appropriate paperwork and any supporting documents.
This includes contacting your insurance agent/company to obtain a completed Registration and Title Application (RTA).
Customers must drop-off the required paperwork within 30 days of obtaining their RTA. Drop-offs with an incomplete or inaccurate RTA will not be processed.
Customers will be able to visit any Registration Drop Off Center between the hours of 9 and 4 to drop-off their transaction paperwork.
An RMV door advocate will review the customer's paperwork to determine if it's correctly completed and ask customers to fill out a cover sheet with their name, email and phone number.
Customers will not be allowed to wait and should expect a phone call or email from the Service Center within a few days when their transaction is completed.
Transactions will be processed in the order received.
Customers will receive a phone call or email when their transaction is completed and be instructed to pay for their transactions online.
Customers are encouraged to check and monitor their emails – including spam or junk folders – after they have dropped off their paperwork, as some transactions may be completed earlier and cannot be picked up until payment is completed online.
