Giving a car as a holiday gift is a totally plausible idea, and one that’s sure to knock the socks off of the recipient. It might be a bit difficult to fit under a tree, but who wouldn’t love receiving a vehicle with all of the comfort, safety, capability they need during the holidays? Here are some tips to help you through the process of gifting a car this Holiday season.
Know Exactly What to Get
Part of the fun of gift-giving is the element of surprise. However, if you’re not sure what exactly your loved one is looking for in a vehicle, it’s better to sacrifice the surprise in order to make sure they receive the perfect car for their needs. Bonus points if you can figure out exactly what they want without them knowing until they see their new ride.
Talk to the Dealer
If you want to give a car as a surprise, you’ll need the dealer’s help. For one thing, you’ll have to arrange paperwork ahead of time, since the recipient of the car will need to be present to sign things like title and registration, and possibly financing as well.
On top of that, there’s a good chance that the dealer has already managed a surprise car deal before, so they may be able to make suggestions and help the process play out smoothly.
You might be looking to special order the perfect vehicle for your loved one rather than choosing something that’s already at the dealership. In this case, you’ll need to order the car well in advance to make sure that it is delivered early enough.
