2. Do your homework.
Before you step into your first dealership, thoroughly research the vehicles you’re interested in so you are familiar with options and prices. It’s also a good idea to brush up on your negotiating skills and educate yourself on the key “dos and don’ts” of buying a car.
3. Buy a Car!
Once you’ve found the car you want and negotiated a price, complete these simple steps:
- Have the dealership fax or email the Purchase Agreement and RMV1 form to the Credit Union.
- Notify your insurance company of your new purchase so they can prepare a new binder.
- Check your email for a link to remotely sign your loan note. (If you prefer, you can come to an HUECU branch to sign the note in person).
- Once the note is signed, you can pick up the check at any HUECU branch or we can overnight the check directly to you.
If you have questions about purchasing your car through private sale, insurance requirements, or lienholder information, please contact the Credit Union.
