What are the steps to buying a car from Cardoen?

  1. Reserve the car you want to buy. Together we agree on a time when you can come to the Cardoen branch of your choice, if you want to see the car first. You can also buy the car completely online. If you buy your car locally at your Cardoen branch, you can of course skip this step and speak directly to a salesperson. 
  2. Let us know if you are turning in your current car. Then we'll calculate your takeover premium and you'll get a nice discount on your next car.
  3. Decide if you need any extras, for example financing, insurance, a maintenance contract, Cardoen Lease, extended warranty or modifications to your car's equipment.
  4. Sign the sales agreement and pay a deposit. Together we determine the amount of your deposit.
  5. Pay for the rest of your car. We put all the paperwork in order in the meantime.
  6. The paperwork is sent to you digitally. One of the documents you receive is the application for registration. You need it to insure and register your car.
  7. Get your insurance and vehicle registration in order. Normally you will receive the license plates 48 hours after your application at the latest. If you take out insurance with Cardoen, we will take care of your registration and you can skip this step.
  8. Pick up your car at the agreed time or have it delivered to your home. Allow about an hour for this, as we take care of the last bit of paperwork and explain how your new car works. If you had your license plates delivered at your home, bring them to your appointment. We'll install them so you can hit the road legally.
