Wholesale Car Buying Tips
10 REASONS TO BUY FROM A WHOLESALER
1. GUARANTEED TITLE
When you purchase a vehicle from a licensed wholesaler you are guaranteed the title to that vehicle. If there is any money owing to a Financier on the vehicle by a previous owner it is covered by the wholesaler.
Most non-commercial vehicles purchased from a licensed wholesaler less than 10 years of age and less than 160,000 kilometres are provided with a statutory warranty. The terms and conditions of this warranty vary from state to state. In addition, Auto Link Finance can assist with extended warranties for your vehicle purchase for up to 5 years from date of delivery.
All wholesalers will inspect the vehicle to make sure it’s not a repairable write off and make sure the vehicle has not been in any structural accidents.
4. SPECIALIST VEHICLE ADVICE
Vehicle salespeople are experts when it comes to cars and can provide specialist advice as to which vehicle best suits your needs and your budget.
5. VEHICLE TRADE-IN
Almost all wholesalers will take trade-ins, allowing you to drive in and out on the same day you pick up your new car. If you have money owing on your current vehicle they make the changeover process simple, without expensive bridging loans. Contrary to popular belief, many wholesalers will pay top dollar for your trade vehicle if the vehicle is in good condition.
6. WORKSHOP INSPECTIONS
Most wholesalers have been established in their local community for many years and, as such, jealously guards their reputations. These wholesalers will subject used vehicles to strenuous workshop inspections prior to offering the vehicle for sale. Most wholesalers will send to auction substandard vehicles rather that offer them for sale to a consumer. When a wholesaler sells a vehicle, he also sells his reputation and the last thing he needs is an unhappy customer.
7. AFTER SALES SERVICE
Wholesalers offer workshop and servicing facilities as well as spare parts to keep your vehicle running smoothly long after you have taken delivery. Many wholesalers will provide discounts or specials for customers that purchase vehicles from them that are not available to someone walking in off the street.
8. CODE OF ETHICS
Most wholesalers are members of the Motor Trades Association in their state. Member wholesalers have a strict code of ethics that they operate within their business. Motor Trader Associations vary from state to state.
A wholesaler offers a choice of cars all in one location, and in many cases will even bring the car to your home or office for a test drive.
10. LOCAL COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
Many large wholesalers contribute to their local community through sponsorship, be it the local football club, hospital, little athletics, etc.
