So you are looking to buy a new car. This is going to be one of the most exciting and life changing decisions of your life. Here is what you need to know before purchasing a new car.
Do not buy a car on your first visit
This is what an inexperienced person would do. Remember you get to test the car and the company (and their salesman) as and when you wish. You want to buy a car that is from a reputed company while at the same time offering impeccable customer service. Since this is your decision, you can choose to say no even if they convince you into buying a car. It is good to be firm and adamant from the beginning that you won’t be buying a car in your first visit. Put your negotiation hat on and get the best deal out there!
Time your purchase
Timing matters! Weekends are usually more busy than weekday mornings – so that is a good time to come and check the car you want to buy and eventually purchase as business is usually slow then. Also, end of months are a great time to make purchases as dealers try to reach their targets and sales goals. This also works out in the bigger picture – end of the year is usually a great time to buy cars as a lot of people don’t make expensive purchases at this time of the year since they are focusing on Christmas and New Year celebrations. So you can get great deals at such times.
Have a healthy credit history
Your credit score will be checked and it is best to get a credit report and have a healthy credit history. Most of the people who purchase a brand new car will probably need a loan, so it is important that you have a decent credit score as banks will be using it to determine if they should give you a loan or not.
Check for rebates
Make sure you check the website of the car manufacturer before making your purchase. Often times there are rebates that are offered and you should take full advantage of these. There are multiple rebates to different organizations and companies that car manufacturers provide and this is a great way to add value to the purchase you are about to make.
All said and done, it is time to put these words into action and have a wonderful experience purchasing your dream car!
