So… you’re looking for used car dealers, eh? Where to start?
Finding Used Car Dealers
Naturally, you’d prefer to buy a used car at a used car dealer near you. You don’t want to have a big trip that takes you a lot of time, only to find out that the car you were eyeing didn’t live up to your expectancy.
It’s always a smart idea to check the Yellow Pages for used car dealers near you.
Once you’ve found a few, pay them all a visit and let yourself be informed. Don’t let them talk you into rushing a decision, you’re trying to get an impression before you decide to take the plunge.
Not rushing into anything will work to your advantage. Salesmen will pick up on your doubts and as a result, they will usually offer you discounts. Don’t ever believe them when they say you have to decide right now or the discount is off. The dealer will more than likely sell you the car at the earlier proposed discount if you come back a few days later. After all, he’d rather sell the car with a smaller profit margin than not sell the car at all.
If you can’t find any used car dealers near you, it’s time to take your search to the internet. A Google search using the term “used car dealer” in combination the name of the city where you live, will almost always yield useful results.
The advantage here is that you get to browse the used car dealer’s website. Usually, there are pictures and information listed of (all) the cars he currently has.
This makes it real easy for you to compare used cars. Be sure to make a list. You can either bookmark the pages you are looking at, or you can save the links to a textfile on your desktop.
Always have a list. Then run over that list and go through the process of elimination.
