Be prepared for a smooth car-buying process
1st United Credit Union hosts car sales with local dealerships throughout the year. Watch for announcements for the next car sale.
We want to make sure you are prepared to purchase your new vehicle at the car sale with these tips:
Before the event, apply for a loan with 1st United. You can apply online, at a branch, or by calling us at (800) 649-0193, extension 4775. By getting pre-approved before buying, you will know how much you can afford and get the best interest rate.
Things to bring
Not getting pre-approved? Make sure to bring your driver's license and proof of insurance.
If you are trading in a vehicle, bring your registration and title, if you own it.
Remember to estimate car sales tax, registration fees, and any other add-ons like GAP insurance to your payment. You can use the 1st United auto loan payment calculator to help you figure out what your payment will be.
Contact your insurance company that day. Most insurance companies let you change your policy online. If not, call them to let them know about your new vehicle and, if financed, that 1st United is the lienholder.
