Forms from CATA still free, but shipping now on dealers' tabs

November 11, 2010

The Chicago Automobile Trade Association has long provided free to its members some of the paperwork necessary to sell new and used vehicles, and it will continue to do so.

But at a time when all budgets are under scrutiny, the delivery of those forms no longer will be paid by the CATA.

Instead, when member dealerships place a forms order, they also must offer their UPS or FedEx account numbers, to which the deliveries will will be charged. To avoid delivery fees, dealerships near the CATA building in Oakbrook Terrace are welcome to send a representative to collect the forms.

Free forms offered by the CATA include the Used-Car Buyer’s Guide, Odometer statement, Used-Car Limited Warranty statement, and Emission Control Equipment statement.

The CATA annual membership dues remain $400.
