Do Your Homework Before Buying A New Or Used Vehicle

There is a way that you can shorten the time spent at a dealership buying your next set of wheels.  After all, there is a mountain of paperwork that must be processed before you can drive off the lot.  The secret?  It’s really quite simple. If you take the time to prepare, the actual buying process will be much shorter.  Knowing what to bring with you to streamline the process also is a time saver.


Be Prepared

It helps if you know which vehicles you are most interested in.  Begin by researching the vehicles on your list, either by Googling online or you can go to the library and browse through issues of Consumer Reports or Car and Driver.  Make a list of the features that are most important to you and the vehicles that meet your criteria.

Next, visit the websites of the dealerships with the vehicle(s) you are most interested in, and note any special deals going on now.  If you are shopping with us, be sure to see our website at and complete our financing application for quick pre-approval.  Qualifying for financing before you buy a new vehicle saves a lot of time!  Also, don’t forget to call your auto insurance agent and find out their requirements for insuring a new vehicle.


Items To Bring With You When Car Shopping

Here’s a suggestion of items to bring with you when shopping for your next vehicle:  a state-issued driver’s license, paycheck stub or other proof of income, car title if trading in your current vehicle, utility bill with current address for proof of residence, current auto insurance card for proof of insurance and your checkbook.
