If you are in the market for buying a new car, and by new, we mean new to you, which in most cases means a new used car, you now have so many options these days. You can go on TradeMe, you can go online where there are many great-looking deals, but where you have no guarantee if something goes wrong with the car, and you can also go to the big auctions either online or on site. However, there are many reasons why not to do any of the above, and to go through a ‘tried and true’ car dealership when looking to buy your new car.

One of the main reasons to choose a respected and well-known car dealership is for exactly those reasons, that they are recognised in their field by setting standards and services which others seek to follow. This means that when you visit their car dealership, you will benefit from the collective experience of their management team. This type of experience is invaluable and can’t be ‘bought’ as it has usually been hard-earned.

When you are in the market for a new used car, take the time to go down to your chosen car dealership and get to know the really great people who are there to give you friendly service and a welcoming approach. Keep in mind that a reputable car dealer will, at any time, have over 600 vehicles in stock and have quick access to freshly imported cars.

Another big advantage of dealing with your chosen car dealership is that all their vehicles will be checked, complied and odometer certified and all their cars will have a brand-new warrant of fitness and will be registered. They will also offer competitive car finance and insurance all under one roof and will have a full range of financial options available. When you are buying a car or borrowing money, it is always important to ensure you are as protected as you can be against the worst happening, and a reputable car dealership will recommend a full protection package which would include a four-year warranty, a Guaranteed Asset Protection and a Payment Protection Insurance.

There are yet more advantages of dealing with a local firm who will offer great customer service with timely reminders for warrants of fitness, insurance and warranty renewals with car servicing and much more. So, before you commit yourself to buying your new used car, do the research and choose a trusted car dealership.
