If you’re looking to purchase a used car, you obviously have quite a few choices to make. You need to choose what vehicle will work best with your budget, wants, and needs, plus you have to decide where to shop. For some, this can be daunting because you may not know where to start.

To help you decide where to shop, we’ve put together this list of benefits of buying a used car from a dealership. Check it out then schedule a test drive at your local used car dealer near West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Greenacres.

Benefit #1: Selection

When you shop with a used car dealer, a huge benefit over a private seller is selection. Car dealerships such as Braman Honda of Palm Beach have both the inventory and the incentive to maintain a large used car inventory. And if you’re lucky, they’ll have a certified pre-owned vehicle inventory where you can snag an incredible deal on one that’s been rehabbed prior to being placed on the sales lot.

Benefit #2: Service

One con of dealing with a private seller is that the person probably isn’t an expert in used car sales, which means you likely won’t have the best shopping experience. Do you take a test drive? Do you bring a mechanic? How does the paperwork process work? You won’t have to ask these questions when you shop with a dealer. Car dealerships work with shoppers just like you every day, and we know what we’re doing.

Benefit #3: Warranty

One advantage of shopping for a used car at a dealership is that there are often warranties available that you can add to your vehicle loan. This will not only ensure that your vehicle is in good shape, since they’re selling you the warranty, but also that future mechanical problems will be covered under the warranty. Other optional add-ons often available from a dealership include pre-paid service plans and accessory add-ons.

Benefit #4: Support

Buying a new car can be a fun experience or a total drag. And how that goes depends on the kind of support you receive during the shopping process.

While car dealerships may have a reputation for driving a hard bargain, the truth is that we’re here for you. We rely on making our customers happy so we get more customers in the future, which means we’re highly motivated to give you excellent service. A private seller’s only motivation is to get rid of the vehicle.

Shopping for a used car is an exciting time, and the team at your local used car dealer near Boca Raton, Palm Beach, and Greenacres would like to be part of that journey. Contact Braman Honda of Palm Beach to schedule a used car test drive today or check out our huge online inventory now.
