You want to buy a used car, but your credit rating and history are less than perfect.
You also probably think that it will be harder to get the type of dependable vehicle that you need.
Well, if you do business with the right dealership, it won’t be. If you’re searching for a pre-owned vehicle but have bruised credit issues, you can follow these tips for choosing the right used car dealership:
How long has the dealership been in business?
You want to do business with a car dealership that has been around for a long time. Dealerships can’t stay in business if they don’t treat customers right. Pay attention to what the dealership looks like, too. Is the facility clean and well-maintained? Is there a service department? A used car dealer should help you keep your car running great for years to come. If they are only selling cars, they’re not a full service dealership; they aren’t interested in developing a real, long-lasting relationship with you.
Do they offer low mileage vehicles?
There are oodles of used car lots out there. The best dealerships offer used cars that have lower mileage and are high quality. Barrett Motors staff is picky about the vehicles displayed on our lot. We want to make sure our customers buy with confidence and can depend upon their vehicle.
Do they offer service after the sale?
Again, this is an important consideration. If a used car dealership has a service department, they are in business for the long run. If they’re just selling cars, they’ll forget about you after you buy. Our service shop is staffed by professionally-trained technicians.
Car finance—do they make it easy to get a car loan?
Not everyone has perfect credit. Most people need transportation. Some used car dealerships only offer financing on certain vehicles. But we make financing available on every vehicle we have in stock on each of our three lots. You can also apply for your financing online before you visit one of our dealerships. Our experts will be happy to see you, sit down with you, and explain all of your options in a friendly, no- pressure manner.
Read the fine print
Yes, forms can be long. But be sure to read every bit of paperwork to make sure that the contract matches what you’ve been told. There are some untrustworthy dealers and employees who tell you one thing, then have you sign a contract with completely different terms. The finance and sales team at Barrett Motors is happy to review the contract with you, so that you know exactly what you’re getting into.
For more than 30 years, Barrett Motors owners, management and staff have helped automobile buyers who have credit problems.. Each of our used vehicles are AutoCheck Certified.
We can overcome nearly every bad credit situation, whether from bankruptcy, prior repossessions or charge-offs. As our motto says, “We finance your credibility, not your past ability!” We invite you to experience the Barrett Motors difference.
