Some of the major roles of car dealers is to get the cars to the customers from the factory, give information they have about the products to the customers, and reply to the questions asked. 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 give the buyers significant peace of mind whenever they are selling, because they are required to give the buyer an official note gotten from the local authorities, which proves that the car has not been stolen and has no money in needed by the law, hence giving their customers some peace of mind by proving the car is not owing and that it was not stolen.
The second pro of using a dealer is that dealers follow the regulation and are required to keep on renewing their approval status. They get their approval from government department like the office of fair trading, customer affairs, and must adhere to acts of parliament that provide legation.
Another advantage is that the cars sold by dealers are 100% roadworthy, seeing that they test the mechanics of the vehicles and select the right ones carefully so as to meet the government standards, and if they do not meet them, the cars 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. It is necessary for the buyers to read the warranty policy agreement well to ensure that they fully understand the terms, which will guide them to make the right choice based on this factor.
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.
The sixth benefit comes in the warranty of new cars, which are required to have a comprehensive manufacturer warranty coverage which can be transferable whenever the car changes hands. Nevertheless, the buyer should check to ensure that all manufacturer necessary services have been fulfilled and that the warranty has not been voided.
The last benefit is that the government is keen on ensuring that dealers do not sell cars that have been written off, by imposing heavy penalties on those who may attempt to do so.
