What to Bring When Buying a Car | JAB Automotive | Old Bridge, NJ
Purchasing a vehicle is a big decision, and you will want to do everything you can to make sure you make the right choice. Prior to going to a dealership like JAB Automotive LLC, you should do your research and decide what kind of a vehicle is best suited to your needs and the needs of your family. You should also have a budget in mind and make sure that your credit reports are correct and up-to-date, so you get the best finance options you can.

When you head out to test drive and potentially purchase a new or used vehicle for yourself, you will want to make sure you bring everything you need so you can seal the deal without delay and finally purchase your dream car. Here are the documents you should bring when buying a car.
  • Loan documents (if you’re preapproved for a loan from your bank or credit union): If you’re not financing your vehicle with the dealership, you will want to come in with your preapproved loan information, which includes how much you’re approved for and the interest rate you qualify for. These documents will also help keep you on budget and do away with loan and finance negotiations at the dealership.
  • Driver’s license and proof of auto insurance: These items should always be on you while driving, but it’s essential to have them when purchasing a vehicle. You need your license to test drive a vehicle, which is central to choosing the right car. You need proof of your auto insurance once you sign a bill of sale and want to drive the car off the lot, and prior to this if you’re applying for an auto loan at the dealership.
  • If you’re trading in your current vehicle, you must bring a few more documents with you to the dealership:
    • Your car’s certificate of title
    • Current registration
    • Owner’s manual

If you want to make sure you have everything you need to purchase your car from JAB Automotive LLC, give us a call beforehand and we’ll let you know if there’s anything else to prepare.
