How Far Should You Travel To Get The Best Deal On A Car Purchase?
The car market is a lot like buying a home more than people realize; location has a lot to do with how much you will pay/ adjust location. Buying local Is good news if you are local within a 30-mile radius; however, for those auto buyers not within the 30-mile radius you can save depending on how far you’re willing to go.
We talk to car buyers every day, and it amazes us how many people are not willing to take a bit of a drive to save a significant amount of money. We tell people to think of it this way: Would you drive a Three-hours round trip if someone were to give you $600? That’s $200 an hour just for driving!
Increased car buying radius equals better savings
If you want to get the best price on your next used car, we strongly suggest casting a wide shopping net. For some people this might be a one- or four-hour radius, for others it might be larger depending on their local market.
The reason behind this is simple: the larger your travel radius the more dealerships within that range and the more dealers you have to choose from. For example, if you were to shop locally for a Ford there may be only one or two dealers in your area, and they may even have the same owner. These dealerships may not be as competitive on price as another store that is further away.
