Buying Used Cars Through a Wholesale Club
The price of gas has increased dramatically over the years, and the price of
cars seems destined to follow the trend as well. With a new car priced at more
than a year's amount of rent in some places, it is no surprise that many people
are deciding to stick to buying a used car. But finding a well-running,
inexpensive used car can be difficult. SAM'S CLUB, the super-store warehouse
with discounts on everything from televisions to potato chips, has stepped in to
make the buying process a little easier. As a free service to their members,
SAM'S CLUB leads buyers through the process of purchasing a used car that fits
their lifestyle and their budget.
If you're a member of SAM'S CLUB and you want to know how to take advantage of
this cost-saving program, just call your nearest SAM'S CLUB and ask about their
Auto, Boat & RV buying program. Or you can visit them on-line, fill out a simple
form regarding the type of vehicles you're searching for, and you will be put in
contact with a network of automobile dealerships in your own area that are
willing to offer you their lowest prices. There is no compromising and no
haggling involved. Through your SAM'S CLUB representative, you will receive the
lowest price possible.
There seems to be no guarantees when buying a used card; not knowing the history
of a car is like not knowing the story-line of a soap opera. Unless you're there
to see everything that happens as it is happening, the story becomes so
convoluted as to be indecipherable. Fortunately, Plus members of SAM'S CLUB
don't have to involve themselves in all of the drama. They are given access to
five free vehicle history reports while they are preparing to purchase a used
car through the program. Advantage members can purchase the history reports from
AutoCheck at a 10% discount.
If you have a car that you would like to trade in, you can find out what the
trade-in value would be on-line through their web page, through the Edmunds.com
True Market Value® Used Vehicle Pricing Appraiser. If you decide you'd rather
sell it outright, you can post a classified ad for a one-time charge. You
can also find out how much the used car you're looking at is really worth.
Guaranteed low prices are not the only advantage to buying a new car through
SAM'S CLUB. When considering financing options, SAM'S CLUB members have it good.
Not only are they able to find out if they've been approved within minutes of
applying, they are not required to make a down payment, and they are offered the
lowest rates possible automatically. That isn't possible when shopping through a
bank or credit union. SAM'S CLUB also offers re-financing options for members
who decide not to buy, so that they can pay off their high-interest loans and
save up for something they've always wanted.
The savings on used cars sold through the Sam’s Club Auto, Boat & RV Program
don’t end with the sale. You can also receive discounts on service and parts
when you visit dealerships that participate in SAM'S CLUB's discounts. As
importantly, these service discounts apply to other vehicles sold by SAM'S CLUB,
as well as to your own car as a member.
With over 46 million members expecting the best bargains, SAM'S CLUB is always
looking for new ways to help its customers find quality products at the lowest
prices. Purchasing a used vehicle through them is no different. Both in the lot
and on the road, SAM'S CLUB.
