How to Buy a Car in Another State

luxury car salesman giving new car key

New England drivers know it’s often worth crossing state lines for a good deal. It’s easy for people who live in Maine to visit their favorite Nashua restaurants. But how easy is it to live in Massachusetts and buy a car in New Hampshire so you can take advantage of a better deal on an extended warranty? If you’re asking, “Can I buy a car in another state?” the answer is yes! Keep reading and we’ll tell you how.


How to Register a Car in Another State

Whether you live in Hudson, Merrimack, or Lowell, buying a car in another state and registering it in your home state is easy. All you need to do is take a few documents to the Department of Motor Vehicles in your hometown. Here’s how:

  1. When you purchase your car ask Tulley Mazda for a bill of sale with the purchase price clearly listed. Take this bill of sale, your photo ID, proof of residency, and proof of insurance to your nearest Department of Motor Vehicles.
  2. Tell the DMV clerk that you bought your car in New Hampshire with the intent of titling and registering it at your home address.
  3. Your clerk will likely return your bill of sale and keep the New Hampshire title. You will be asked to pay the difference in sales tax between the two states.
  4. Your new title will be mailed to you.

Taxes and Fees How-To

In addition to what you paid for your car, you can expect to make these payments:

  • Your local sales tax
  • The difference between the New Hampshire sales tax and your state’s sales tax
  • Department of Motor Vehicles processing fees, if applicable.
