Car Dealership Insiders: Used Car Buying Do’s & Don’ts, Stamford, Connecticut

If you’ve decided to buy a used car, knowing the ins and outs of the industry can help you get the best deal. The car shopping insiders at Harbor View Auto Sales in Stamford, CT, have a few simple do’s and don’ts to help you get the best used cars at the best prices.

Here are their top tips:

  • Take Advantage of Special Deals: Customer rebates, dealer incentives, and other specials can knock down the price of used cars on the lot. These sometimes come out toward the end of the year or during holiday times.
  • used carTry Shopping Mid-Week: Since there is sometimes less customer traffic than on weekends, dealers can be more eager to sell in the middle of the week. With fewer people shopping, they can spend quality time with each customer.
  • Avoid Shopping In Bad Weather: There won’t be many customers at local used car dealerships during a snowstorm, so sales reps will be desperate to sell at any price, right? Wrong. They will surely do their best to get you the best deal, but showing you cars on the lot is going to be substantially more difficult in bad weather.
  • Don’t Go Right Before Closing: Many customers think showing up around closing time will get them a sales rep who will offer a lower price so they can close the day with a sale. In reality, going late will just limit the amount of quality time they can spend with you.
