Before you head to the dealership to pick up that new ride, be sure to be prepared! We’ve got a checklist to help you determine what to bring when buying a car. From ID cards to insurance info, you’ll need a lot of paperwork before you get those keys in your hand. Read on for the top car buying tips from Biggers Mazda in Elgin, near Streamwood and Bartlett.


What documents do you need while car shopping?

  • Driver’s license: The dealership may need a copy before you take your test drive.
  • Current proof of insurance: Bring along a copy of your current proof of insurance, and if you don’t have any currently, speak to an agent or company ahead of time. They can talk to the dealership on your behalf.
  • Certificate of Title: Speed up the trade-in process by bringing in your own pink slip, or you may have to wait awhile for the DMV to send over the duplicate title.
