What should I bring to the dealership when I'm ready to buy or lease? | Hendersonville NC | Near Asheville, Canton & Greenville

If you're ready to take the plunge of buying or leasing a vehicle from us, that's awesome! We can't wait to meet you. However, if you're a first-time buyer, then you might not know exactly what to bring with you when you head over to our dealership. That's why we made a handy list of what you might need to grab before you leave to purchase or lease the Volvo of your dreams. Keep reading to learn more about what to bring to our dealership when you're ready to buy or lease.

  1. Your driver's license: When you're filling out the paperwork, you'll need to have your license on hand for proper identification. However, there's also a chance that we might already have your license on file if you've taken the vehicle you want for a test-drive.
  2. Your Social Security number: If you don't know it by heart, bring your social security card along as well. Even if you are buying the vehicle outright -- without any financing -- the dealer will still need your Social for tax purposes. Almost 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 important piece of paper. There are laws in all 50 states requiring drivers to have some sort of insurance because it protects everyone on the road.
  4. Your wallet: You'll have to pay for the vehicle somehow, whether through financing, cash, cashier's check or credit card. There are many avenues of paying these days, and depending on how much your car is worth, it makes sense to figure out the best way to pay for your vehicle ahead of time. When leasing, you'll usually have to make some kind of a down payment on the vehicle.
  5. Proof of employment, residence and salary: Depending 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 good 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.
