Be Prepared To Take A New Car Home Today


The Spokane New Car Show is a selling show - the dealers are prepared to work with you to make the best deal possible.

You may pre-qualify for financing by speaking with a loan representative of your financial institution before the show, or your can qualify for instant financing during the show.

Instant financing will take about half-an-hour of your time and may be arranged through an on-site bank or a dealer. Take this documentation with you to the show:

Verification of employment

Either a recent pay stub or a W2 will do. If you are self-employed, take along tax returns for the past two years.

Personal information

Bring a record of everything you presently owe - lenders need to know your credit load before determining the amount you can borrow. They will run a credit check on the spot, so any debts you forget to list - of that you under-report - will show up.

Title or lien of any trade-in

To trade in your old car, bring either your title or lien-holder information. Before the show, call the lien-holder (financial institution) to determine your pay-off amount.
