FAQ

Check Cashing

Q. Do you cash personal checks?
A. Yes. Some check cashers simply refuse to handle personal checks but we welcome them. Depending on the size or circumstance, we may bank the check and release the funds after the check has cleared. In most cases however, we do not have a problem cashing personal checks on the spot.

Q. Can I cash a check payable to my business?
A. Yes. For faster service, please bring the following information:

  • If you are incorporated and have been for less than a year, bring your Articles of Incorporation.
  • If you are incorporated and have been for more than a year, bring your Articles of Incorporation and your annual minutes (Form 2553) filed on the last anniversary of the corporation.
  • If you are not incorporated and have been doing business for less than a year, we will need a letter from an accountant or an attorney stating that you are the sole proprietor of the business.
  • If you are not incorporated and have been doing business for more than a year, we will need your Schedule C from your latest federal tax return.
  • If you cannot provide the documentation stated, please contact our Commercial Account Manager at 847-759-4566 who can assist you further.

Vehicle Licenses

Q. My renewal sticker had to be ordered. Is the receipt I was issued legal to drive on?
A. The currency exchange cannot issue a legal receipt to drive with when a renewal sticker must be ordered. However, the receipt issued shows that you paid for the renewal and most law enforcement agents will not issue a ticket if you show our receipt. Please be advised that you can receive a citation for invalid registration. You should receive your renewal sticker within a week of purchase.

Q. I acquired a vehicle and registered it at the currency exchange. How will I receive my title and plates?
A. You (or your lienholder, if applicable) will receive the title through the mail within 3 months. If you ordered license plates with a specific plate number (ie, personalized plates, a single replacement plate, ham radio plates with your call numbers), you will receive them through the mail within 3 months. If the plate ordered did not have a specific plate number, it will be available at the currency exchange within 2 weeks.
