If you are a customer that is planning to buy a car out-of-state from Keystone Ford, then check out some of these frequently asked questions to bring you peace of mind concerning this buying process. All customers intending to purchase from out-of-state should read the following:
Can I title and register the Keystone Ford vehicle I purchase outside the state of Pennsylvania?
We would love to sell you a vehicle, however, several states and financial institutions have new regulations and requirements that make that difficult or even impossible. Title and registration information must be obtained regarding your home state (excluding Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia). For that reason, we are only able to assist you Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The vehicle you are inquiring about is not able to be held during that time. We may require additional time to gather all of the necessary information from your home state regarding taxes, fees, inspection and emission information, and required forms. You rarely will be able to take delivery the same day.
Will you be able to ship me the vehicle directly?
Due to proof of identity requirements, you must sign all documents in person and take delivery from the dealership.
Will my pricing and rebates be the same?
The advertised pricing for the new vehicles on our website and other media is after all Ford incentives applicable to residents of the Washington region. Ford may offer different incentives for your home address, therefore the pricing may be different.
What about taxes? Which state's taxes will be followed?
Keystone Ford will charge the appropriate sales tax for your home state.
Can I finance with my bank or credit union?
Wired funds or Electronic Funds Transferring must be received from your lender by the dealership before delivery. Drafts, letters of credit, or funds on hold will not be accepted on out-of-state deals. We will also be happy to assist you with financing your vehicle.
What about insurance and other required documents?
You will be required to provide state and VIN specific insurance, driver's licenses from your state, and if transferring a license plate, a copy of your state registration. All of these items must match the address of your new registration.
What if I am not returning home soon?
That will not be a problem unless your home state requires you to have a vehicle/emissions inspection done in your home state before they will title and register the vehicle.
Can I handle my own title and registration?
Yes, if you purchase a pre-owned vehicle with immediately available wired funds. You will not be able to if you purchase any new vehicle or financed a pre-owned vehicle. Lenders require the dealership provide proof of registration and lien record. Ford requires proof of registration matching any incentives received.
How long will it take to receive my new registration?
Each state varies greatly on how fast they process out of state titles and registration. If you must provide emissions, state inspection, ad-valorem, or paid property tax-fees-assessments receipts, this will increase the processing time. Our goal, if we have all the documents, is to complete the registration within 60 days.
