do not have to pay sales tax when you register a car in New Hampshire.
This is just one of the wonderful things about being a resident of this
beautiful state! This saves Key Auto Groups customers thousands of
dollars because when they go to register their car, they only have to
pay a state and federal registration fee. The state title fee will be
collected at the dealership, so the amount of money required to register

When you buy a car at one of the Key
Auto Group dealerships, you will usually receive a 20 day temporary
plate. This temporary plate allows you to wait 20 days to register your
car in NH, essentially giving you the privilege of driving free for the
better part of a month. When it is time to register your car, you will
turn in your New Hampshire title application (also known as your
"blues") to the town clerk. This is what will be sent to the state and your lending
institution, at which point a new title will be issued in your name.
The lender will receive this title after your register the car, and the
title will be held until you pay off your car loan. The title

Are you trying to trade a vehicle that is
currently being financed?
Awesome! We can help you through the process
of trading your vehicle in. The process is simple: We appraise your
vehicle for its market value and if you owe more on your vehicle than the
amount for which it is appraised, the excess will be included in your
next loan. Some customers choose to pay this off with cash, but it is
rarely required to do so. In fact, many of the loans we write at our
dealerships include some sort of negative equity. The
reality for all vehicle that are not considered antiques or classics, is that car values depreciate faster than loan values,
and the average trade cycle is approximately three years. The good news
is that our new cars and used cars are priced well below market value,
making it easier to help someone cope with a negative equity situation.
