Over the years in dealing with over 60,000 customers, and the state of Maryland, we have learned how to make the car buying process a little bit easier. Our job is to help YOU, and to make the process as pain free as possible. One of the best ways to do that is to make sure that YOU know what you need to bring to the dealership when considering purchasing a vehicle. Here is a check list of things you will need:
A valid driver's license:
issued from the state that you are registering the car. The only
exception is military -- your license can be issued by any state.
A current insurance card:
which 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:
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
The title of the car you are trading: 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:
including anyone on the trade title or anyone signing the bank loan
paperwork (Co-signors and Co-owners). Anyone going on the title of the
car you are purchasing needs to be present.
Bring your check book:
if you are making a down payment on a vehicle. Bringing a check book is
also a good idea even if you have your own financing in case you want
to purchase one of our extended service contracts.
Proof of income:
paystubs from the last 2 pay periods for anyone who will be on the title
of the vehicle will be extremely helpful in getting your financing
As always if you are unsure of what to bring please give us a call! At BAYSIDE AUTO GROUP, we want to make your car buying process as easy and seamless as possible.
