When is the Best Time to Buy a Car?

What is the best time to buy a car?

Did you know that the cost of a car can fluctuate based on the month or the day of the week? Now that you have decided it is time to buy a car, make sure you purchase it at the right time so you can get the best deal possible.

When should you go car shopping? Here are some tips:

Don’t Shop on the Weekends

Instead, shop early in the week. The best days to shop for a car are typically Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday because fewer customers walk through their doors, and dealerships can offer you a better deal. Additionally, the weekends are usually very busy and you tend to get less personal attention, so negotiating isn’t easy. The salespeople usually have less time to spend with you. The more time they have to get to know you, the better chance you have of snagging a good deal. Mondays are usually the slowest day for car sales, and most salespeople need to make the most every opportunity that walks through their doors.

Shop Later in the Year if Possible

You’ll find the best deals during October, November, and December. This is because dealerships have sales quotas, and they need to make these goals by the end of the year. They will work to get you the best deal so they can make their quotas before the year ends. However, it is important to remember that their sales deadlines are often a few days before the end of the month, so try to shop during the third week of the month, rather than the last week of the month.

Shop the Holiday Sales, Too

You have probably seen the commercials every holiday season when companies urge you to come in and buy now. Those holiday sales often offer deep discounts that you will want to take advantage of. Because the next year’s models start to hit the dealership midyear, Memorial Day sales will often bring great deals on last year’s models. And even car dealerships offer Black Friday sales, so check the ads to see if your area dealers are participating.

Waiting is often difficult, but if you can use these tips and wait for the right time to buy a car, you can save thousands on your dream car! If you are considering purchasing a car, contact We Drive today. We can help make your experience stress-free.
