Buy a car

If you are in Cluj and want to get your own means of transportation, you can choose to buy a new or second hand car. For both cases, we recommend that you carry out an investigation of what are the characteristics of the car you want to obtain, compare prices, what are the payment facilities and the guarantee offered.

If you want to buy a new car, these are the documents you should receive from the seller:

The contract of sale – purchase: which must include the name (s) and address of the seller and your domicile, price with / without VAT, characteristics of the car – make, type, year of entry into service, mileage -, date of purchase, payment methods, date of delivery , insertion of special conditions, as appropriate.

The purchase invoice: mentioning at least the price without VAT, the chassis number of the car and the VAT code of the car dealer; this document must clearly indicate that it is a new car.
