When is the Best Time to Purchase a CarOctober 25, 2019
When it comes to buying a car, timing is everything. But few people know when the right time to purchase a car is to get the best deals. Here are just a few tips to time your shopping right so that you can get the best possible price for your next vehicle.
Shop on Days with Less Foot Traffic
You might want to think twice about heading to a dealership on a weekend. You’ll have to fight for attention from the salespeople which can really drag out the entire process. Shopping for a car on a weekday will give you more one on one time with the sales agents.
Shop at the End of the Day
Research has also shown that you’re more likely to get a good deal if you stop in at the end of the day. Few agents will want to cut into their personal time just to get a few more dollars out of you. This gives you the chance to close on a more flexible, hassle-free sale.
Shop Around the Holidays
You might also be able to strike a good deal during the holidays. Many dealerships offer Black Friday, end of the year, and back to school sales.
Shop at the End of Each Quarter
If you can hold out to buy a car at the end of March, June, September or December you might find a better deal. Car dealerships have quarterly sales quotas they need to meet. In some cases, salespeople have financial bonuses tied to their sales quotas, so you might be in a better position to strike a good deal in your favour at the end of a sales period.
Shop When They Release Their New Models
You might assume that most car manufacturers release their next year’s models in January, but they actually come out months before. If you can stay up to date on when the newest models hit the dealership lot, you can save big on the current models. Dealerships have limited space, so as soon as a new model comes out the rest of the cars will drop in price. Look for the annual clearout flyers that will start coming out in the summer.
You don’t always have to wait to find a good deal. At Seaway Hyundai, we’re always offering exceptional prices on used and new vehicles. We also have a number of promotions and discounts throughout the year that can help you save even more. Come visit us today or shop our inventory online to find out what deals we are offering that will help you save hundreds or even thousands off a car of you’ll love.
