When buying a used car, most people have many concerns and rightfully so. Many things can go wrong with any car purchase, and a used car is likely to have a higher risk of being a bad buying decision than a new car. This is why when buying a used car the best decision is always to buy it from a reputable dealership. A dealership allows a customer to save time, avoid mechanical issues with the car, get the best help with financing, and ensure that all the paperwork necessary is completed in a way that won't cause issues in the future.

Hassle-Free and Convenient

It can take a lot of time to find the right car. It takes even more time when the right car is spread out all across the country. When a customer goes to a dealership to choose a car, they generally have hundreds of options to choose from right at their fingertips. Multiple test drives can be completed all in the same visit.

When this is compared to all the hassles of buying privately, buying from a dealership saves customers a lot of time. Buying a used car from a dealership means that a shopper no longer has to travel from one place to the next. They also do not have to spend a lot of time with communication to schedule good times to meet and look at the car. There is no need to schedule time for a mechanic to check the car out, as the dealership typically includes a full inspection and limited warranty.

When a customer decides to use a dealership for their used car purchase, the time that they end up saving translates into a lot of money saved as well.

A Safer Purchase

One of the main concerns people have when purchasing a used car is the mechanical condition that the car is in. Customers do not want to purchase a used car expecting it to solve their transportation problems only to discover that it has engine troubles that need to be fixed. Purchasing a used car from a dealership takes care of this issue. Most dealerships have mechanics that inspect all of their used vehicles and will provide written guarantees that all issues and problems have been fixed. They can also provide the customer with an extended warranty to take care of any problems should they arise. If there are any major problems with the car, the car can normally be returned within a certain period, and if the car is purchased from a dealership, the customer can feel assured that the dealership will still be there to honor that return. This same thing cannot be said about private sellers.

Simple Financing

Financing is another area where it really helps customers to deal with a dealership rather than a private seller. Buying a car is expensive, even when it is a used car. Most people do not have the money to purchase a car sitting around their house or even in their bank account. This is where financing comes in. However, the process of applying for a loan can be a long and tedious one, and when a person needs a car right away, it can be very difficult to shop around for the best financing option available to them.

When purchasing from a dealership, however, this process becomes simplified. The dealer knows exactly what car you want, and they will work hard in getting you the best financing they possibly can because this increases the chances you will buy the car. They will complete credit applications immediately and can generally procure instant approval for the customer.

Less Paperwork

Paperwork is another area where it really pays off to purchase a used car from a dealership rather than buying it privately. The paperwork involved in purchasing a car is very important. From the title to the registration, any slip up in the process can lead to a major headache for the buyer in the future.

Dealerships have a lot of experience in selling cars, and they make sure that every i is dotted and every t is crossed before a customer leaves the parking lot with their new car. They complete all the paperwork for the customer and all the customer normally has to do is sign their name and drink some coffee in a nice air-conditioned office while they wait. This takes a lot of stress and guesswork out of the picture and allows the customer to focus on the important part - what car do they really want to buy?

When buying from a private seller, mistakes can occur, and even worse, many times outright fraud can occur. When buying from a private party, a buyer has to be very cautious that the titles are not fraudulent. This is something that the customer does not have to worry about with a dealership, as the dealership is not going to risk its entire business to sell one fraudulent vehicle to a customer.

The advantages to buying a used car from a dealership are far too great to overstate. Dealerships offer far more options for a customer and are better able to negotiate their prices. Being a dealership allows them to have first selection of many great cars that are coming off factory leases. The level of service a customer is going to receive will be night and day when compared to a private seller. They are better able to deal with problems that may occur after the purchase, and they can be trusted to live up to all their obligations with the minimum hassle involved. They also generally provide many extra little incentives like free oil changes or tire changes, which a private seller will generally not be willing to do. Even if they are willing to offer incentives, it will be difficult to schedule time with them to fulfill the obligation.

From the convenience to the time savings, right down to the level of reduced stress that is provided to the customer, buying a used car from a dealership is definitely the best choice.
