Among the basic objectives of car dealers is to get cars on the door of their buyers, provide information needed, and answer questions about their services. In cases where customers make a call to the agents, they start being referred to as buyers rather than shoppers by the agents, who bring the following pros to them.
Buying a car from a dealer who has been licensed by the government is good, because unlike the private sellers, they have a guaranteed clear title for each vehicle. Dealers enable a stress-free spirit in their customers through giving them a note from the regulating authority which prove that the car is debt-free and had not been stolen.
The other benefit is that becoming a dealer requires an approval from the government, which keep on being renewed hence benefiting the people due to authenticity. The dealers get their approval from departments of governments such as customer affairs, fair trading and must follow the acts of parliament put in place to provide for such legislation.
Thirdly, the vehicles sold by dealers are roadworthy since they have been mechanically tested and well selected to make sure they meet the government’s roadworthy conditions and in cases where they don’t, they are modified to meet them.
The fourth benefit of the dealers is that they provide their customers with warranty policy extensions, which are put in place to aid the buyers with covering for mechanical repairs whenever there is a technical failure after the warranty period has expired. Buyers should always read the warranty policy of the car well to be able to determine their best option of car they should buy.
The fifth benefit of car dealers, as witnessed in many countries is that there is a statutory warranty put in place by governments in the case of old vehicles where they should have a 5000 km or 3-month interviews with an extra condition that the vehicles must have traveled for less than 160000 km and are less than 10 years old for the case of Australia.
It is also an advantage to note that there is a regulation that controls the warranty of new cars passing through the dealers, where the former is required to have a comprehensive manufacturer warranty coverage, which can be transferred if the car changes owners before the period lapses. Nevertheless, the buyer should check to ensure that all manufacturer necessary services have been fulfilled and that the warranty has not been voided.
Lastly, the government protects the buyer heavily against dealers who may intend to sell cars that have been written off by imposing heavy penalties to them.
