After 30 years in business, we have learned the ins and outs of what a customer needs to bring with them to purchase a vehicle. Here is a checklist of things to bring when purchasing a new vehicle:

  • ┬áValid Driver's License or State ID

Must be issued from the state that you are registering the car and match your current address. The only exception is people in the military, their license can be issued by any state.

  • A Current Insurance Card

The card must have the name of the person who is buying the car and whose name is going to be on the title. It does not have to be for your new vehicle, it can be for a current vehicle.

  • A Current Registration Card

This applies if you are trading in your car and still have a lien against your car or if you are going to transfer your current license plate to your new car.

  • The Title of the Vehicle You Are Trading

This only applies if you are trading a vehicle that does not have a bank lien. Some states (Maryland, for example) have two parts to their title, make sure you bring both parts of the title.

  • All Parties that Need to Sign Paperwork

This includes anyone on the trade title or anyone signing the bank loan paperwork, which includes Co-signors and Co-owners. Also anyone goin3g on the title of the car you are purchasing needs to be present.

As always if you are unsure of what to bring, please give us a call!
