Buying a car online is faster and easier than visiting the dealership

Buying a car online is faster and easier than visiting the dealership

There are many advantages to buying a car online but one of the main benefits is in time. It’s faster as well as easier to buy a car online than it is to visit the dealership.

While we do everything we can to make the car buying process as simple and as painless as possible, there is an inevitable time cost to buying a car. That’s something you can minimize a lot by purchasing your next car online.

Buy your car online

Once you’re through the research phase, the online buying process can be done in less than an hour. Depending on whether you’re paying using cash or a car loan, there will be some back and forth with paperwork, but otherwise, it’s a short and painless process.

Most of us research cars long before we hit the dealership anyway. That’s no different whether you buy online or in a dealership. The main difference is in the dealing with sales people, negotiating prices and the sales person having to check with the sales manager.

There is none of that when buying online.

You can still make an offer on a car rather than pay the sticker price but it would all be over email, web chat or phone and not in person.

Car loans and buying online

You can use a car loan for buying a car online in exactly the same way you can in the dealership. If you prepare your paperwork in advance and email it over, we can do the work while you’re doing other things and get back to you once the deal is ready to sign.

Again, it’s a painless process that is as easy as you make it.

The test drive and buying online

The test drive process differs slightly when you buy online. You will either have to book a test drive and come to the dealership or buy the car and use our 3 day moneyback guarantee to return it if you don’t like it.

You can also visit other dealerships to test drive your car and then buy it from us. If you have a friend with the same car, you can test theirs if they are willing.

If you want a truly hands-off car buying process, we recommend buying the car online and having it delivered. You then have 3 days, or 250 kms to change your mind. You also have up to 5 days to exchange the car if you really don’t get on with it.

Car Nation Canada has done a lot of work to optimize the online car buying process. We can communicate via email, web chat or phone. We can work with you to secure a car loan and deliver the car to you as long as you don’t live too far away.

We can even send you a walkaround video so you can see as much of the car as possible without leaving home!

If you’re interested in buying a new car but don’t want to visit a dealership, we can help. Visit the Car Nation Canada website and browse our stock and contact one of our team who will be happy to help!
