Why a Service Department is Important When Choosing a Used Car Dealership

So you’re looking for a dependable used vehicle to buy.

Why does it matter whether or not the dealership also has a service center? Why should you care?

Lots of reasons, my friend.

For one…

technicians and sales staff at that dealership/service center will know that vehicle inside and out.

Management and staff at many other used car dealerships are only interested in selling a used car. They bought the vehicle from someone, put it on their lot and want you or someone else to buy it and take care of it. If they don’t have a service department, chances are that is has not been reconditioned for sale.

However, dealerships with in-house service centers have had their mechanics put vehicles through a stringent multi-point inspection. They understand the vehicle and will share information with you based on facts. If you buy from a dealership like ours, you’ll know that every vehicle has passed and received an AutoCheck Certification, performed by expert technicians.

Service techs will provide routine maintenance

When a dealership like Barrett Motors has a service department, they want to have a long-term relationship with you and your vehicle. They can advise you about routine maintenance that should be done in order to avoid future issues. 

Service techs will help you if there is an unexpected issue

When you have a working relationship with techs in a service department at the dealership of your choice, you know that they are familiar with you and your vehicle. If an unexpected problem arises, they already know you and your ride, so any repairs are a priority. It’s not like doing business with a stranger. Service department techs will have history and records about your vehicle, which will save time and money.
