Your not “transferring a deed.” A deed is the document that transfers ownership of the property. In my state, once that deed is recorded, you can make a paper hat out of it. The recorded deed itself is of no intrinsic value. It’s simply a piece of paper.
A title company prepares all the required paperwork to transfer ownership, including a deed itself.
A quit claim deed is simply a deed that transfers an apparent interest in property, without guaranteeing that the apparent interest is in fact a valid interest. Title companies in my state prefer you receive a Warranty Deed wherein the seller warrants his interest.
