Best Time to Buy a Used Car

The Best Time to Buy a Used Car at Auction Direct USA

Everyone shopping for a car wants a good deal and wonders what is the best time to buy a used car. People shop around, talk to private sellers, take advantages of rebates and incentives, all in the search for the lowest price possible.

You will not be subjected to pushy salespeople looking to make as much money as possible on the sale. At Auction Direct, we want you to purchase the automobile you want at the best price in town.

Time of the Week

Many car dealerships usually hold special sales and events on weekends. Not to mention, customers are off work and ready to shop. So if the dealer doesn’t get you to buy, there is likely someone right behind you who is ready. Dealers tend to use Mondays to follow up on business from the weekend. The slowest time at most dealerships is Tuesday and Wednesday. Most people are working, and walk-in traffic is slow. Salespeople are itching to make a sale and will sometimes offer a deal to get your business on a Tuesday or Wednesday.

Time of the Month

The best day of the month to shop for a used car tends to be the very last day that the dealership is open for the month. Salespeople are working hard to meet their goals and the goals of the dealership. To do this, they might be willing to negotiate more than they would during other times of the month. Help them make a sale, and you benefit from a great price.

When Not to Go

Many people think that if they show up right before the dealership closes, they will get a deal because the salespeople just want to go home, making them eager to negotiate. Another common myth is that if you go while it is raining, salespeople will negotiate more, and you will get a deal. The truth in both situations is that salespeople figure if you show up that late in the day or when it is raining, you REALLY want or need a car, so they don’t have to negotiate as much.

A Sure Deal

When looking for a good price on a used car, the best thing to have is knowledge. Do your research and know the value of the car for which you will be shopping. Shop around and don’t be afraid to negotiate. Many people, including automobile salespeople, believe that the time of week and time of month affects your car-buying price. The fact, however, is that it can depend on where you go. The timing might be important at some places, but that might not be the case at Auction Direct USA.
