Out of Town Buyers

All customers intending to purchase from Out of Town or Out of State should read the following:

Will you ship me the vehicle?

Yes, we ship vehicles all over the continental United States

Pricing and rebates?

The advertised pricing for the new vehicles on our website and other medias is after all Ford incentives applicable to residents of the Metro Detroit region. Ford may offer different incentives for your home address; therefore, the pricing may be different.

What about taxes?

Most states, but not all states, are "reciprocal" with Michigan for sales tax. In the states that are not, you would have to pay 6% sales tax to the state of Michigan plus your home state tax. It may not make financial sense for you to purchase in Michigan.

Can I register any Suburban Ford of Sterling Heights vehicle in my home state?

Some states have different emission requirements than Michigan.

Can I finance with my bank or credit union?

Drafts, letters of credit, or funds on hold will not be accepted on Out of Town deals. We will also be happy to assist you with financing.

What about insurance?

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?

No problem, unless your home state requires a vehicle/emissions inspection in your home state before they will title and register the vehicle.

Can I handle my own title and registration?

No, our manufactures and lenders require the dealership provide proof of registration and lien record. Ford requires proof of registration matching any incentives received.

What about additional fees charged by my state?

There are a few states that will not/cannot give us the amount of local/city/county/ state fees, sales tax, ad valorem tax, or use tax. For the same reasons as in the above answer, we would not be able to deliver the vehicle


How long will it take to receive my new registration?

Each state varies greatly on how fast they process Out of Town 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.
