It’s important to have the proper documents when you go to buy a new vehicle to make the process as smooth as possible. Make sure that you pick up these documents on the way out the door to Pantili Mitsubishi.
This seems like a no-brainer, as you should always have it on you anyway, but make sure you bring your driver’s license when you go to finance a new vehicle. In order to drive the vehicle home with you, you need to provide the dealer with proof that you are legally permitted to do so!
In the same vein as providing a driver’s license, offering proof of insurance is required to drive the vehicle off the lot. Even if the dealership only requires your current auto insurance plan as proof, it’s recommended that you set up an insurance plan for your new car in advance so that you can protect yourself.
Title & Registration For Trade-In Vehicle
Are you trading in an older model for a new vehicle? If you’re handing your old ride off to the dealership, you’ll have to bring the title for said vehicle with you. That document not only tells the dealership that you are the owner of the vehicle, but also allows you to hand it off to someone new. A current registration, as well as up-to-date license plate stickers, are also required to hand off the vehicle.
Account Number For Trade-In’s Loan
If the vehicle you are trading in is still financed through an auto loan that you haven’t yet paid off, you will need to bring the account number for the loan with you. If you have further questions about how to go about handling a loan during the transaction, it is best to call the lender yourself in order to let them know you plan on trading in a vehicle with an unpaid loan.
Your Method of Payment
Much like a driver’s license, this seems like common sense. More often than not, the method of payment will be the check for a loan, in addition to a credit card or personal check transaction for the down payment.
