But what does buying a vehicle in Chile really involve?

  1. The first and foremost step on how to buy a car in Chile is obtaining a RUT. This is the equivalent of a social security number in many countries. You will need this identification to buy nearly everything here.
  2. Obtaining a RUT is a laborious, slow process; it feels this way particularly when you are new to the way things work in Chile. But the Suzi Center makes this process easier and faster for you. They will also spot any errors and inaccuracies on the paperwork you are required to gather prior to purchasing your car, to prevent any delay in the process.
  3. Next, finding a vehicle and also checking it. This might even be the step where experience and local knowledge is most handy!
  4. Finally, acquiring insurance and the toll automated recognition system.

Daunting? Well, the Suzi Center will make all the above steps just another cultural part of your trip to South America.
