What is a Bookout?
It is common practice for automotive dealers to arrange financing for their customers when they are purchasing a vehicle. As part of the loan underwriting process, lenders require dealers to submit a bookout for the vehicle that the loan will be secured against to verify its value relative to the proposed loan amount.
Each lender bookout identifies a vehicle by year, make, model, trim and VIN with the precise options that the vehicle is equipped with and displays the specific values from the guidebook required by the individual lender. This allows the bank to confirm that the value of the vehicle is on par with the requested financing.
Carbly provides a bookout feature that allows dealers to generate a PDF file of the bookout that can then be sent to the financial institution as a hard copy, email, or fax.
