Tip of the Week: Rent Before You Buy

Tip of the Week: Rent Before You Buy

Not sure whether you want a certain vehicle or not? Consider renting it. It’s an especially good idea for people thinking about making a radical change in their vehicle, like moving from a car to an SUV.

Money on a rental is money well spent if it saves you from spending thousands on a car you don’t like. It will give you more time to get to know the vehicle and whether it’s the right one for you. Plus, many rental companies offer special weekend rates.

If renting isn’t an option, often times, a dealer will let you take a vehicle for an extended or overnight test drive. You need a thirty-minute test drive minimum, but it’s a good idea to call ahead and ask for one ahead of time since this isn’t the norm. No reputable dealer wants you to drive off the lot with a car that’s not right for them so make sure you take the test drive seriously and aren’t rushed.

Remember, once you sign the papers and drive out of the gate. You’re the owner of that automobile. Click here for a link to our Car Pro Certified Dealers.
