What to Bring With You When Buying a Car

What to Bring With You When Buying a CarAre you planning on buying a new Ford in the near future? You can streamline the entire process by having the necessary documents ready to go. Here’s what to bring with you when buying a car from Van Drunen Ford.

Proof of income

In order to buy a car, you need to prove you can afford to make the monthly payments. Proof of income can be as simple as a bank statement or paycheck stub. Either document will satisfy lenders.


Are you really you? A dealership will need to confirm so to let you leave the lot with your new Ford. If you drove to the dealership, odds are you already have a valid driver’s license that can serve as identification.


Before you leave our dealership, you’ll need to prove you have insurance on your new vehicle. It’s wise to make a phone call to your insurance company to set up the switch before purchasing the car. You don’t want your new car sitting on the lot for days while you wait for insurance coverage.


A driver’s license may include your address, but a dealership still needs proof of residence. This can be in the form of a utility bill, mortgage agreement, or another bill sent to your address.

The more prepared you are when you come to buy a car from Van Drunen Ford, the sooner you’ll be able to drive your new car home.
