There comes a time, whether we want to face it or not, when the old clunker of a car we have just isn’t cutting it anymore. We are just spending too much time and money trying to maintain the clunker. So, that leaves you with the task of heading out to get another car. While this may seem like a dreaded task, there are times of the year, month and even day when you can get a great deal on a vehicle.
Best time of the year– The best time of the year to buy a car is at the end of the year. The end of December is the ideal time to buy a car because of the fact that car dealerships are trying to boost unit sales as well as revenue numbers for the end of the year closing.
Best time of the season– The best time of the season to buy a new car is at the end of the summer. The reason that you can get great deals on a vehicle at the close of summer is due to the fact that automobile companies are switching production from this year’s models to next year’s models. Neither these automobile companies nor the car dealerships want to deal with a bunch of leftover cars just sitting in the lot when the newer vehicles come in. This is the ideal time for dealerships to bring out some extra incentives and hefty discounts to make room for the newer cars.
Best time of the month– The best time of the month to buy a car is at the end of the month. So, why is the end of the month the best time to go car shopping? Well, as you know car dealers get paid bonuses for automobile manufacturers. Car dealers are trying to increase their sales numbers by the end of the month so they get a better bonus on their paycheck.
Best time of day– The best time of day to buy a new car is at the end of the day. You want to show up at the dealership about an hour before their closing time. Why? Because car salespeople are tired after a long day of selling cars and just want to go home for the evening. Not only that but the finance personnel and insurance staff wants to head home as well. They just want to ensure you get into a car so they can go home and relax.
So what car are you planning on buying?
