Black Friday is approaching quickly. Do you have your shopping game plan figured out? If you’re thinking about taking advantage of the fantastic Black Friday sales at a GMC dealer near you, you may want to strategize ahead of time. Luckily, Anthony Buick GMC is here to help. Check out our Black Friday Car Conquest tips below to make sure you’re ready to reap the maximum benefits from this year’s blow-out sales!
- Be prepared.
According to research by Edmunds, Black Friday accounts for over 15% of total November car sales nationwide. That means that you should expect dealerships to be absolutely packed with people. It’s important to walk in the door already knowing which car you’re interested in, how much you can afford to pay, whether you want to lease or buy and whether or not you’re looking for vehicle financing. Make all of those decisions before the day comes. You can thank us later.
If you plan on trading in your vehicle, make sure you get the trade-in appraised ahead of time. Visit a CarMax or your preferred dealership before Black Friday to lock that information in before it’s crunch time.
- Get as much done ahead of time as possible.
Sit down at your computer one evening and spend some time researching rebates and incentives in advance so that you have a solid frame of reference in mind before you negotiate your deal. Once you’ve worked out your options, schedule a test drive before the Thanksgiving holidays–all you have to do is call your favorite Buick dealer
If you’ve finally settled on a specific vehicle, go ahead and call the dealership to find out what paperwork you can complete online or from home. When Black Friday finally arrives, you’ll be able to collect all your documents (including your driver’s license, insurance information and loan paperwork) and enjoy a quick, easy and painless purchasing experience.
- Get in and get out.
Get to the dealership as early as you can to avoid the inevitable crowd of shoppers. If you’ve already been in touch with the dealer, be sure to ask that the vehicle you plan on purchasing is prepped before you arrive. That way, it will be washed and ready to go before you even sign on the dotted line.
Some dealerships even offer delivery–you may not get the car until after the weekend is over but it will at least save you the trouble of wading through crowds of people when you could be at home, relaxing and eating leftovers.
