Shopping for a car might sound like fun, but anyone who has been there knows it takes a lot of work to narrow down the vast array of choices to find just the right car for you. When you’re looking for used cars, the car buying process is even more stressful. Should you buy used or certified pre-owned? What about a warranty? How important is resale value? And what about all of those options? Which ones are worth the money and which ones are a waste of money?
If your head is spinning, relax. Buying a used car is stressful, but you don’t have to do it alone. There is help out there to take over the hassle of car buying so you can focus on your sweet new ride.
Here’s why it makes sense to enlist a personal shopper to help you on your next car-buying adventure.
1. The Research… The Endless Research.
When you want to buy a new printer, you probably scan the reviews online and then make a purchase. For cars, it’s a little more complicated. Sure, you can read reviews and safety ratings online, but there are a ton of options and other things to consider before buying a new car. If you have time to do hours of research yourself, that’s great, but all of that research can feel like a massive burden on top of an already busy lifestyle.. After all, you’re already researching preschools, car seats, calling poison control to make sure those bath beads your two year old ate are actually non-toxic… Personal shoppers do the research for you and present you with a list of cars for sale right now that meet your needs. Uh, yes please!
2. The Car You Love Will Be Gone By The Time You’re Ready to Buy
The average car is on the lot for about 42 days. Most car buyers take four to six WEEKS to purchase a car! This means that all of those cars you pore over when you begin the process will be long gone when you’re ready to buy, and you will have wasted hours of time scanning online ads. Personal shoppers scour the ads so you don’t have to, letting you know when a match comes on the lot, and making the process quicker and more efficient.
3. Want to Spend All Day Calling Car Dealers? Me Neither.
Unless you really enjoy calling car dealerships to ask questions, you’ll probably love a service that steps in and contacts dealers so you don’t have to. Rather than spending nap time trying to track down current inventory or finding out whether the car you have your eye on has a sunroof, your personal shopper will do the busywork for you and send the information directly to your inbox.
4. Personalized Service Saves Time and Money
When you’re trying to decide between a couple of used cars, it can be challenging to know exactly what the differences are between the two. You can request a comparison chart from CarStory personal shoppers that help you understand what you’re getting at a glance, and that can help you avoid costly mistakes (not to mention hours of research online). We live in a personalized, customized world and it makes sense to let personal shoppers create that experience when you buy your next used car.
So why not give it a spin?
