Out Of State Shipping With Expressway Toyota
Out of State Sales
Because of our low pricing and wide inventory, we receive daily requests from shoppers out of state and across the country. Many dealers will not sell their vehicles out of state, because of the added time and effort involved with registration, taxes, paperwork and shipping. We at Expressway feel otherwise. We understand that our website, ExpresswayToyota.com, is a showroom for thousands of shoppers both in and out of the state of Massachusetts. As e-commerce grows, so does our exposure and audience. Therefore, we offer our vehicle selection and low pricing to anyone regardless of residency.
Here are some things you need to know if you are shopping Expressway Toyota from another state.
Taxes and Registration
Each state has its own taxes and automobile registration fees. You should know the cost of registering the vehicle in your state. Please do not rely on the sales representative you are speaking to over the internet or phone to provide this number to you. Upon the agreement to purchase, you will be contacted by a business officer who will confirm your registration and taxes, as well as offer the option for us to register the vehicle for you.
Each vehicle purchased at Expressway Toyota or ExpresswayToyota.com is assessed a $399 documentation preparatory charge and a $5 title preparatory charge, totaling $404 added cost. This is the only added cost to the consumer, and the charge is taxable.
Shipping vs Pick Up
When shipping anything of value, the phrase stands true, “you get what you pay for.” While we do not ship vehicles ourselves, we can recommend a local shipper to you. We can provide you with a shipping price quote within 24 hours.
If you choose to drive or fly here to pick up your vehicle, please coordinate with your business officer to ensure a smooth pick-up date. We are located in Boston, Massachusetts, 5 miles south of Logan International Airport. We can provide a shuttle to the dealership from the airport or major train station, public transit, etc.
Massachusetts does not offer temporary license plates. Your state MAY offer these temporary tags, and you may want to utilize this service. Many buyers request these temporary plates or “tags,” from the local DMV of their home state and attach them to the new car to drive back home. State laws vary.
First Come, First Served
When shopping a vehicle at a dealership out of state, there are certain expectations one should have. As a high-volume dealer in a major city, we experience thousands of interested shoppers every week, many of which are interested in buying the same car as you. In fact, on any given day, there are multiple people looking at the same exact vehicle. To be fair, we do not hold vehicles. First come, first served.
The only time a vehicle is secured is when you hold a signed Purchase Agreement, reflecting your intent to purchase with a partial payment paid. For out of state buyers, this would be emailed or faxed to you. Until the Purchase Agreement is executed, the vehicle remains available to everyone.
We try to provide you enough information at ExpresswayToyota.com to collect, compare and make a purchase decision. Generally, all of our vehicles feature 30 high-definition pictures, a full video walkaround, a CARFAX link, and the complete vehicle specifications. We understand you may have additional questions regarding a particular vehicle and we will do our best to accommodate. We will even email you a 5 minute personal demonstration video of any vehicle you wish.
Please understand that requests for additional information or videos, negotiating, or obtaining shipping quotes take time. Exchanging emails and phone calls requires a reasonable time to respond back and forth, and such delays may well result in losing the vehicle to another buyer. We respect your purchase process, and we ask that you respect the purchase process of others. In other words, if you want it, buy it! 🙂
