What to Bring When Buying a Car

So you’re ready to buy a car — you’ve done the research, found the model you need, the trim you want and the color you love. While all of those things are important, you still need to bring the right documents and paperwork with you for a hassle-free buying experience. It’s no secret that the car-buying process can take a while, but the more prepared you are when you walk into the dealership, the sooner you’ll be driving off the lot in your new car.

According to Edmunds.com, these are the items that you’ll need in order to make your car-buying experience as smooth as possible:

  • Payment method (call the dealership before you arrive to find out what payment methods they accept)
  • Driver’s license
  • Title and registration of the vehicle you are trading in (if applicable)
  • Account number for the trade-in vehicle’s loan (if applicable)
  • Proof of automotive insurance
  • Documents for eligibility (if applicable)
