Buying Process


Regardless of where I live, how does the buying process work if I am financing my vehicle through Texas Auto?

  1. Apply online, or in person, get approved, and contact your corresponding salesman to work out the details of the transaction.
  2. Leave the standard $500 deposit to secure your vehicle during the buying process.
  3. Depending on where you live and how you will take delivery of the vehicle, the loan paperwork will be sent via FedEx to be signed and returned or handled in person at the dealership.
  4. Once all the necessary documents are received, the loan will be funded within a few days and you can start making arrangements to take delivery of your vehicle.
  5. We will gladly arrange to have you picked up from the local airport during regular business hours or we can arrange shipping to your front door on a fully licensed, bonded, and insured carrier.
  6. All necessary paperwork and any taxes collected will be forwarded to the proper agencies to license and register your new vehicle and license plates are mailed directly to you.
  7. Transaction Complete!
