Benefits of buying a used car from a dealership

Benefits of buying a used car from a dealership

Savvy car buyers know that you can often get a much better deal buying used rather than brand new. But if you decided to go down that route, you have a choice to make. Should you buy from a private seller, or visit a dealership? Here are just some of the reasons why we believe buying used from a dealership is the most sensible, convenient, and effective choice.

 

1) Choose Your Ideal Model

Choose Your Ideal Model

 

There may be hundreds of car choices available privately in the classified ads, but visiting each seller to inspect each vehicle individually can quickly add up to a major inconvenience. Buying used from a dealership means you can browse a wide range of vehicles in just an hour or two, homing in on your ideal model much more quickly and efficiently.

 

2) More Time to Decide

More Time to Decide

 

Buying from a dealership also gives you a little more time to make your decision. Private buyers will generally want to seal the deal there and then, and may even put pressure on you by saying that there's another buyer waiting in the wings. Trustworthy used car dealerships know that these kind of old-school tactics are counterproductive, and in most cases will be genuinely happy to let you sit on your decision for a day or two before signing on the dotted line.

 

3) Easier Payments

Easier Payments

 

A good dealership will be able to arrange competitive finance packages for people with a wide range of circumstances, with flexible payments available to make your purchase easier. With a private seller, you're limited to either the cash you have available now or the strict terms that your bank might give you on a new loan.

 

4) Buyer Protection

Buyer Protection

 

When you buy from a private seller, in theory you have plenty of rights if things go wrong shortly after your purchase. In practice, if you didn't notice an issue with the car when you inspected it, you'll have little comeback even if you've been sold a real lemon. Buying a used car from a dealership means you have much greater buyer protection. A dealership which sells shoddy cars not only gains a poor reputation that could put them out of business, but they risk losing their business license altogether if their cars are sold in an unfit state.

 

5) Better Quality

Better Quality

 

Buying from a dealership means the car will have been carefully inspected for quality, and with any necessary repairs already made. With a private sale, you have no idea what state the vehicle is in under the surface.

 

6) Combine Trade-Ins and Buying

Lastly, when you buy from a dealership you'll be able to trade in your current vehicle for a competitive price. You can buy a new car and sell your old one at the same time, massively simplifying the whole process.
