Unhaggle | The Beginner's Guide to Choosing a Car Dealer: How to Find the Best Deals and Services

Posted by | February 13, 2014 | Ownership | No Comments


Authorized car dealers often provide the best place to buy vehicles because they do not only offer a wide range of products. They also have knowledgeable staff that can assist and help educate buyers about different car models and choices, but because dealerships are run by various owners, they also differ from one another in terms of sales and services. This is why you have to spend time to find the right dealer, so you can enjoy good customer service, competitive deals and reliable after-sales services. Here are the things that you should consider when choosing a car dealer:



It will be a lot easier for you to find out if a particular car dealer offers you the best price by comparing their prices to the price range provided on the car manufacturer’s website. Check out the price range of the car you plan to buy on the brand’s website, so you get an idea how much it will cost you. You can then compare this to the prices various dealers offer. It is also worth looking into the different deals and incentives that the dealers can provide.

Financial Assistance


If you plan to buy a car via credit or installment, you should check out the financial assistance schemes offered by various dealers. You should ensure that the dealer has a capable financial department as well. Learn about the tie-ups that car dealers have with banks and insurance companies and the available options they offer to buyers that need to borrow a substantial amount.

There’s no use to doing business with a car dealer if it does not have the make, model and color of the car that you prefer to buy so see to it that you know in advance if a car dealer can provide you the vehicle that you want. You should also know how long it will take the dealer to process the related paper work. Make sure that you do not also get carried away by sales people who may attempt to talk you into getting a car with features that do not suit your needs.



You can communicate with car dealers either through email or over the phone. See which car dealers reply back promptly with the information that you ask for. Good dealers know what you want and will provide you with a clear idea on the best options for you. They will allow you to choose what suits you best rather than push you into making another choice.
