Florida Dealer Summer Preparedness

for Auto Dealers on Wednesday, August 8, 2018 by Brittany Barrett

Florida residents know all too well how unpredictable the weather can be during the summer months. Power outages and inclement weather affect not only dealerships but also shipping carriers, online vendors, and government buildings alike. Dealers can stay ahead of the curve by stocking up on pre- printed tag stock available at local tax collector or tag offices before outages occur.

Pre-printed tags are available to purchase in multiples of five and can only be used if the DHSMV or Auto Data Direct is experiencing difficulties and dealers are unable to access the EFS or ETR systems. Pre-printed tags can also be used during scheduled DHSMV maintenance outages. Use the links below to locate your local office:

In order to use the pre-printed tags correctly, they must be reported within 24 hours or once the system is back online. To do this, click on your ADDTag app , select the +New button, and then select “Offline Issuance” under the “Issuance type” drop-down menu. In order to stay compliant with the DMV procedures and protocol, it is important to complete this step after issuing a DMV-issued pre-printed tag.

As always, if you have any questions about ordering temporary tag stock or emergency outage procedures, don’t hesitate to email ADD at info@add123.com or call one of their friendly and knowledgeable customer service representatives at (866) 923-3123, 8 AM to 8 PM EST. Se habla español.
