Choosing a Dealership is Almost as Important as Choosing Your Car

At Richmond Car and Truck Center, we carry the Commonwealth’s best used cars, trucks, SUVs and more in all makes and models, all with clean CARFAX reports and backed by a 3-month, 3,000-mile warranty. Our team is always here to answer any questions and help you find a like-new car at an incredible value.

Buying a car is a huge financial decision, and it comes with lots of factors to consider in the process. From what brand to buy to how to finance your new car, the choices can feel overwhelming. One way to make the process easier is to carefully select the dealership you buy from.

What to Look for in a Dealership

Overall, you want your car buying experience to be simple and straightforward. A dealer may look welcoming and kind online, but when you arrive in person it’s a whole different story. How can you tell which dealerships will be the easiest to work with?

Broad Inventory

If you’re not sure what kind of car or truck you want to purchase, visiting a dealership with a large inventory is a fantastic place to start. Exploring different makes and models and being able to test drive a variety of cars can help you feel confident in your decision of the one you actually drive home. If you do know exactly what you’re looking for, a dealer having a large inventory can also serve as a sign that your community trusts this vendor enough to sell their car there.

No Pressure-Based Sales

This is a bit of a harder one to find in the used car sales industry. One of the reasons car salesmen have such a bad reputation is that they work off of pressuring their client. This means that their goal is not always to help you find the perfect car for your needs; it’s to sell you an expensive vehicle in order to make the most amount of money possible. Going with a dealership that does not use pressure will make your shopping experience less stressful. You’ll feel less forced into to buying something that you don’t love or you can’t afford, and you can feel good knowing that your salesperson has your needs in mind.

Local vs Chain

Buying from a local used car dealership means that you’re buying from the same people that live and work in your community. The money you spend there goes right back into your neighborhood rather than in the pockets of some CEO whose name you’ll never know. The salespeople at your local car dealership are the same people you run into at the grocery store. They care about you and your community because they are a part of it as well.
