Common Car Shipping FAQs

Read some frequently asked questions you may have if you’re purchasing a vehicle from out of state:

Q: Do I have to pay taxes twice if I buy a car out of state?

A: No, you don’t! If your vehicle was purchased out of state, you will most likely pay a sales tax when you register your vehicle in your home state. If the tax has been paid during the purchase of the vehicle, however, your Department of Motor Vehicles will most likely issue a credit to you for the amount that you have already paid if it’s over your state sales tax amount.

Q: Is it cheaper to buy a car out of state?

A: In some cases it may be! Sales tax, document fees, and registration varies on a state-by-state basis, so it could be cheaper for you to buy a new car from another state. To find out if you’ll save more when you ship a car across the country, look into your state’s fees and compare it with other states to find the best deal! 

Q: What is my state sales tax going to be on my car?

A: Whether you are going to be buying new, buying used, or even leasing, you are going to have state sales tax attributed to your purchase. You’ll have to research your state sales tax before you have a car shipped to you from Acura of Johnston to see how much you can expect to spend in taxes. The average state sales tax is usually between 3%-8% on the total price of your vehicle. 

Q: How long will it take to receive my new registration?

A: The time frame for receiving your new registration will vary since each state has its own time frame for how quickly they can process state titles and registration. If you need to provide emissions, state inspection, ad-valorem, or paid property tax-fee-assessment receipts, the processing time for your registration will increase significantly. Getting your information in quickly will shorten the wait time.

 Q: Can I register any vehicle in my home state?

A: This will depend on your state’s emission requirements since they may differ from Iowa’s emission guidelines. Double-check with your state DMV before you register your Acura of Johnston vehicle in your home state. 

Q: What about pricing and rebates?

A: It’s important to keep in mind that the pricing and rebates available and advertised in your home state may differ from our dealership’s current incentives and offers. Contact our team for further clarity on our offers or check our current specials online.
