Why Do I Need These Documents to Buy a Car?

Drivers License

You should have your driver's license with you at all times, but your driver's license to our dealership indicates proof you are legally allowed to drive and operate a vehicle before we sell you a new one

Proof of Insurance

Your current proof of insurance that lists your current vehicle is sufficient.

Preferred Method of Payment

Save time on the buying process by having your check, cash, or loan ready before you enter the dealership. If you're financing your car through Dellen Automotive be sure you have enough time set aside to fill out the necessary paperwork or ask about pre-approved financing. A down payment should also be prepared ahead of time. 

Recent Pay Stub

A pay stub is proof of employment if you are financing your automotive loan 

Credit Report

Review your credit score and history before buying a new car. The higher your score, the better the terms of your loan will be.

Discount Information

If your credit card company, manufacturer, or dealership offers a discount make sure you have all the necessary information with you so you don't miss out on the deal. It is important to carefully read the fine print to fully understand the discount.

List of References

If your credit score is less than excellent a list of references may help your search for a loan. This list should include the names, employment, and contact information of people who can vouch for you and who don't live with you.
