Tax is easy to calculate, registration, and the various accessories I'm interested in too. What other charges and how much (ruffly), should I be aware of that will alter the bottom line?
Cars aren't titled until they are sold to the first retail customer (that's what dealer plates are all about), otherwise whoever titles them will be subject to sales tax. A second sales tax would then be charged when the title is transferred to the first retail owner.I don't know how many hold-down locations a standard car trailer has, and if they can increase the number. Maybe all it takes is more lashing gear.
Another thing that has been in the back of my mind, and in consideration of specific vehicles going to specific dealers (rather than just a slug of lot stock), is the possiblity of all smarts going to Michigan to a smart controlled marshalling and distribution center, where they can be forwarded to the proper dealer. Somewhere in the dark of time I recall a statement that all smarts would be initially titled in Michigan.
