Online car buying tips for the new year

Online car buying tips for the new year

2021 has a lot to live up to as a new year. It has to be an improvement on last year while providing all the opportunities we look and hope for. One relatively new opportunity it is sure to bring is the ability to buy a car without leaving the sofa.

Buying your car online is now easier and more accessible than ever!

There are a few things you can do to make it even easier on yourself though.

Research, research, research

Unless you’re one of the lucky few who knows exactly what you’re buying, you need to do your research. You should spend as much time as you need browsing car manufacturers, reading reviews, checking the various models and specifications and building a picture of the auto market.

The more research you do, the clearer your choices become. Research should also give you the confidence to make a buying decision.

Don’t be afraid to ask questions

Just because you’re buying a car online, doesn’t mean you cannot ask for help. The Car Nation Canada team has undergone specific training in dealing with online inquiries and are set up to answer any question you might have.

Call us, email us or use web chat. Ask your questions, request a video walkaround and never be afraid to contact us for more information.

We are always happy to help!

Get pre-approved for a car loan

If you’re using finance to buy a car, get pre-approved first. There’s no point setting your expectations on a car you cannot afford.

The pre-approval process is fast, painless and can also be done online. Our team will work with you to find competitive car loan rates from leading lenders. We can also source bad credit car loans and other types of finance should you need it.

Know who you’re dealing with

Not all car dealerships are created equal. At least when you visit a dealership you can get a feel for how they operate and how they treat customers. That’s harder to do online.

However, Car Nation Canada painstakingly collects customer reviews and places them online for anyone to see. We are proud of our high levels of service and welcome any potential customer to read any review they like.

Know your rights

You are still protected when you buy a car online. If you buy from us, you automatically have a 3-day, 250 km money back guarantee, as well as a 5-day exchange program.

This means even when you buy a car online, if you don’t like it or want something else, you can change the car as long as you tell us in time.

Buying a car online is no different than buying anything else off the internet. Choose wisely, check your options, make sure you’re getting a good price and buy from a reputable seller.

Follow these tips and you could buy your next new car without leaving home. How cool is that?
