Buying a Car Online Instead of at a Dealership: Is It a Good Idea?

Buying a Car Online Instead of at a Dealership: Is It a Good Idea?

The traditional car dealership experience has improved immeasurably over the past few years but it still doesn’t work for everyone. That’s why buying a car online is such a great evolution in what is a well-established but ever-changing industry.


If you’re still unsure about online car buying, allow us to explain. Here are 5 solid reasons why buying a car online instead of at a dealership is a a good idea (coming from a dealership!).


1. Range of available vehicles


Even the largest dealership only has space for so many cars. The rest are stored in a warehouse somewhere. Buy a car online and you can see the entire range of new and used cars a dealership has all in one place.

2. Instant access to reviews

We use reviews for all our buying decisions now and cars are the same. The internet enables us to access all the information we could possibly need about a car in seconds.


3. Easier sales process


It’s the norm to buy things online simply because it’s an easier process. Why get dressed up, prepare your papers, and drive all the way to a dealership when you can just buy it from the comfort of your own home, especially during Covid-19.  



Whatever your opinion of people in sales, some people are much more comfortable buying a car online instead of at a dealership. The dealerships associated with Car Nation Canada make sure to not use pushy sales tactics. Although there are many ones that do. You can avoid all that by buying a car online.


It can also be faster too. No waiting around to haggle and have a price agreed by the sales manager. 


No waiting for a salesperson to become free or finish with a customer either.


4. Instantly compare features and options


If you’re buying a new vehicle, you can check all optional extras on the dealership or manufacturer’s website. Check how something would look, check the colours or trims, optional additions and anything else you might want to add to your car.

You can do all this in your own time, in the comfort of your own home.


5. Delivery to your door


No more getting a ride to the dealership or having to take a bus to collect your new car. You can have it delivered to your door as part of the online car sales process.


If you live close enough, delivery is free too!


There are many reasons why online car sales are growing so quickly. The main reason is because it hands the power firmly back to the customer to control the entire process.
