3 Tips For Black Friday Car Shopping
It’s not just about walking to the car lot or walking through the car lot. Remember whatever choice you make you are going to be with for a few years.
Know where you are headed before you go, and consider what options you want in that new car!
Treat Black Friday Car shopping just like any other shopping you would do. You want to price the vehicle around and check for deals.
Make sure to read up on the vehicle’s performance and what other ‘things’ you might want on it.
But there’s so much more to shopping a vehicle on Black Friday. Do you know what to expect?
Car shopping is nothing short of fabulous during Black Friday so do it!
Don’t Buy It Before You Drive It
Test drives are a must, but there’s so much more beyond this.
No matter what vehicle you are shopping for this season, a Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, or RAM truck, commit to a price for your budget before you shop.
Car buying is great during the Black Friday events, especially when you find Employee Pricing PLUS at your local dealership.
Seek a car dealership that offers both new and used. Always have buying options because you may end up preferring used over new.
Local Is Best – Black Friday Car Shopping
Just a reminder, that typically, traffic during Black Friday through Cyber Monday is horrific.
Don’t let that stop you, but do let it stop you from traveling any farther than your local car dealership.
The incentives are there for you, so stop in and see. Check them out online.
Why travel further, to a dealer then you have to? You don’t want to get mixed into traffic you don’t need to.
What About The Options?
Local Incentives Are Awesome!
Do you know your local dealerships? Are they offering what the National sales are? Check before you go.
Then your next step is seeing what additional incentives your Local dealership is offering.
Sometimes an incentive is as simple as a gift card to a restaurant other times it might be a television, or car care kit, or oil change service for a year, just wait and see!
Learn Your Local Dealership
Does your dealership have good hours? Are the people there friendly?
Do they try to sell you a car every time you walk in with your car or just try to help you fix whatever you are headed in for?
Are you comfortable with the distance from your home or work to the dealership?
Does the dealership offer a shuttle for you if needed?
If these questions all are answered in a positive way, the dealership is where you should buy your car because you have already settled into a great place!
Negotiate Negotiate Negotiate
It’s the season of perpetual bliss and it is the season to wheel (pun intended) and deal.
Don’t feel pressured into buying a vehicle your first day out, the sale will continue most likely until the end of the month.
Seek the dealership that wants to know you for a lifetime. One car or truck after the next! That’s the one who cares!
Negotiate what you can and visit the dealership to test drive, without hesitation!
Get Ahead of The Holiday
Remember, this is a great time of the year to buy cars, incentives are awesome.
Financing options are truly set for the buyer.
