What to Bring When Buying a Car for the First Time | Victoria, TX

Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi | Victoria, TX

Contact Us

If you’ve never bought a car before, you might be wondering what you need to bring to the dealership with you. Here’s a list of must-have items to bring when purchasing a vehicle.

Driver’s License:

You will also find that the overall cost of ownership for a used vehicle is less than its new counterparts. You’re borrowing less overall and you will also have lower registration, tax, and title fees. Used cars also tend to cost less when it comes to insurance payments.

Proof of Insurance:

Driving without insurance is illegal, which is why Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi will need proof that you are currently insured before we let you test drive or purchase a new vehicle. When you purchase your vehicle, the very first thing you should do before you drive off the lot is call your insurance company to let them know you need to insure your new vehicle.

Credit Helpers:

If your credit is less than perfect, Atzenhoffer Mitsubishi might need some additional documentation to help us secure a loan for you. It is important that we have a record of your income and residence. The easiest way to provide this information to us is to bring in two recent pay stubs and a copy of utility bills addressed to you at your current residence.


Trading in a vehicle is the best way to both get rid of your old car and save some cash on your next one. In order to trade in your vehicle, you’ll need to bring it in to us for an appraisal. If you accept our offer, you will also need to make sure you have your vehicle’s title to transfer ownership. Still paying on your vehicle? You will need to bring in any relevant paperwork from your financial institution so we can pay off the loan and procure the title.
