Buying a Car Out-of-State: What You Should Know

Out-of-State Customers Can Enjoy a Hassle-Free Buying Experience at Balise Kia

Balise Kia proudly serves drivers from the Springfield area and all over Massachusetts, but you don’t have to be a MA resident to shop for a great new car at our dealership. If you’re a driver in Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, New York or another nearby state, you are more than welcome to shop with us. You might think that buying a car out of state is too much of a hassle, but we make it as simple as possible for our out-of-state customers to buy a new car at our dealership.

We have all your out-of-state buying concerns covered so you can enjoy a simple shopping experience. Titling and registration paperwork will be taken care of by our helpful staff, so you can just focus on finding the car that’s right for you. Below you’ll see some other common concern with buying out of state, along with our solution to each issue.

  • Emissions requirements: Depending on which state you live in, your car will need to meet certain emissions requirements; since these vary from state to state, some customers worry that buying out of state will get them into trouble. However, Massachusetts is a “CARB” state, meaning that it follows the air quality standards set by the California Air Resources Board (CARB); these are the strictest standards in the country, so any car bought in a CARB state will be suitable to drive in any other state.
  • Sales tax collection: You might be worried that you’ll have to pay sales tax both here and in your home state, but that is not the case. You’ll only have to pay sales tax in the state where your car is registered.
  • Transporting: If you buy your car in one state but register it in another, will you get into trouble driving it back to your home state before registration? No; before you leave our lot, we will give you a temporary registration which will allow you to drive your new car home. Our staff is also trained in DMV rules, so we will make sure everything is in order before you get on the road.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • If I buy out of state, will I be taxed in both the purchase state and my home state? No. You only have to pay tax in the state where your car is registered, which is your home state.
  • Can I drive my car home across state lines? Yes. Our staff will take care of the registration paperwork to get you a temporary license, allowing you to drive home across state lines.
