Best Time to Buy

To get the best deal, begin from picking the best time to get a deal on your car. Sure, you should avoid the worst. The information statistics show that the biggest potential discounts are attributable to the winter months. Yet, there is no need to wait for a certain season to buy a new car as the further a season advances the less choice you are proposed on the car market. Thus, you might not have an opportunity to buy a model you are planning to. So, if you have the desire to own the car you are dreaming of, make the right choice between extra saving or the very model you want.

Worst Time to Buy

As it is proved by statistics research, the worst season to buy a car is probably spring. Winter passed and tax refund checks make consumers think about buying the next new car. The number of shoppers willing to spend their money grows up. That gives a great opportunity for dealers not to offer as many discounts as they used to do as eager shoppers are ready for purchase for higher prices. Unfortunately, if the dealers have already hit all their targets by the time you decided to buy your new car, you won’t probably get as big discount as you would have when they were ready to be amenable while chasing their targets.

To Buy in Your Favour

The best time to get a new car is the first days of the week whereas the worst are weekends. A large number of shoppers can hardly make your day. So Tuesday and Wednesday are the very days you can count on more personal attention while buying a car. The preferable time for shopping is the end of the month or quarter. As salesmen should make a process of selling as successful as possible, they do their best to make a customer buy a car. Any sale may help them to get a promotion at work. Use a chance to have a deal with a salesman who is willing to help you choose the car of your dream. Making your offer shortly before closing time will definitely increase your opportunity to make a good bargain. If a sale was not good during the day, a salesperson may be more pliable especially when it’s closing time. If you tend to get the last year’s model, shop it when new ones are due or just rolling in the shop room. The dealership willing to sell new cars will make concessions as his purpose is to get old models off the lot. Besides, you should take into account that certain types of cars are preferable to buy in different months. If you set your heart on buying a midsize car, you will get a better deal in June whereas if you tend to buy a subcompact, for instance, you will grab a better deal in December. So, it’s important to know these details. Doing the research is a half-done deal.

To Buy the Latest Number Plate

If you want to have your new car looking awesome and don’t care too much about discounts, you should think of getting the latest number plate as it will definitely make your car look like the newest on the road until the newer one comes out. Thus, plan your purchase on the first or third quarters of the year. That will be the best time to buy a new car because the year’s two new registration plate numbers come out in March and September.
