What should I bring to the dealership when I'm ready to buy or lease? | Hendersonville NC | Serving Asheville, Waynesville & Spartanburg

If you’re deciding to take the next step to buy or lease a car, then congrats! Here at Hunter Nissan, we want to ensure that all of our customers are informed about everything they need to drive home happy in the new Nissan they’ve had their eye on for a while.

That's why we made this list for you below. Keep reading to make sure the purchasing process runs as smoothly as possible when you buy or lease from Hunter Nissan or any other dealership.

  1. Your driver's license: When you're filling in your paperwork, you'll need to have your license ready since you'll need proper identification. However, there’s a chance that the dealership might have your license on file if you’ve taken the vehicle for a test-drive.
  2. Your Social Security number: If you happen to not have it memorized, bring your social security card along as well. Even if you are buying the vehicle outright -- not using any financing -- the dealer will still need your Social for tax purposes. Nearly all financial transactions valued at over $10,000 are required to be reported to the IRS.
  3. Proof of car insurance: You can't buy a car without this crucial piece of paper. There are laws in all 50 states requiring drivers to have some type of insurance because it protects everyone on the road.
  4. Your wallet: You’ll have to pay for this vehicle somehow, whether through financing, cash, cashier’s check or credit card. There are many ways to pay these days, and depending on the value of your car, it makes sense to determine the best way for you to pay for your vehicle. When leasing, you’ll usually have to make a down payment on the vehicle.
  5. Proof of employment, residence and salary: Based on your credit rating, you may need to bring these things with you.
  6. A few hours to fill out all of the paperwork: It can be a time-consuming process, especially if you're applying for financing.
  7. And if you're trading in your old car:

  8. A trade-in appraisal: Typically you'll have your appraisal performed at the dealership that you're trading it in to, and many times they'll be valid for up to three days.
  9. Your old car's title: Once you trade it in, you'll have to turn this over since you're releasing ownership of the vehicle.
