Know your credit score 

Your personal credit score is one of the main factors lenders consider when you apply for a loan or a lease. Your lender will most likely obtain your credit report early on in the application process. Knowing your credit score yourself before you go in will help the process move faster, and will give you a good idea ahead of time as to what sort of loan you’ll be eligible for and what rates you’ll be looking at.

Bring your financial documents 

Your pay stub and possibly other documents will prove your income to your lender, which is another main factor in gaining eligibility for a car loan or lease. The lender needs to see if you’ll be able to repay your lease or make your loan payments every month.

Bring a downpayment 

To get the best interest rate on your loan, it is recommended to make a down payment on the vehicle. The larger the down payment, the less you’ll owe and the less your monthly payments will be. Ideally, aim to put down at least 20% of the car’s total purchase price to get the best rates.

Physical items 

Along with the things mentioned above, there are also a few other physical items that you should have with you. These items include:

  • A void cheque
  • A current pay-stub
  • Valid government-issued license
