Tips When Buying a Car

Shopping Tips When Buying a CarCourtesy of

Buying a car always seems like a production.  It’s strange that while the rest of the retail industry has moved toward simplicity and technology, auto buying is still very traditional, almost archaic.  While this may appear to be the case, car buying technology has kept up where it can.  Sure, you can’t simply click a couple of buttons and enter a credit card number and watch your car arrive (by way of free shipping) in about two days.

The process is more involved than a quick visit to, but you can make it a really rewarding experience if you follow our car buying tips.  Whether you’re looking at a new or used car, we have buying tips that can help you save time, money and headache down the road.  Take a read as we enlighten you into the car buying experience.

Shop Off Hours

Salespeople want to spend as much time with you as you need to be comfortable with your potential purchase.  If you see them off hours like weekdays mid-afternoon you’ll get the attention you deserve.  Weekends are always busy with hordes of people, and salespeople will feel pressured to make everyone happy and all that happens is that you get less time with them and more frustration as a result.

Use the Internet or Phone to Get Paperwork Done

Why sit at the office or showroom longer than you have to?  Your salesperson is happy to do paperwork in any manner that physically works so use it to your advantage.  Use the internet, phone or fax to get information back and forth with your salesperson so that you can continue to focus on the other important things in your life.

Do Your Homework

Start your search on one of the popular websites and then check inventories to see what’s available in your area.  Call the dealer to confirm that the car you’re looking for is still available, otherwise you’ll waste a drive and be frustrated with the salesperson over something they can’t control anyway.

Used Cars

Used cars are hit or miss if you don’t know where you’re looking. Buying from a reputable place like Hertz Car Sales eliminates this point of hesitation. This is because Hertz relentlessly maintains their vehicles to manufacturer’s maintenance schedules to ensure that you have a reliable rental, and then subsequently so that you have a reliable purchase.


Hertz Car Sales is a pioneer in customer service in offering the powerful Rent2Buy program on many of its available vehicles.  This exclusive program lets you test the car of your choice for three days, which means you can take it on your daily commute, take a road trip and ensure that all possible drivers and passengers have an opportunity to experience the car.  Why test drive for three minutes when you can test it for three days?!
