You’re enjoying a delicious dinner with your wife and kids. Everything seems normal. Your youngest son is setting aside the peas on his plate and your teenage daughter is busy texting while chewing on a carrot stick for her “diet”. All of a sudden, you hear a loud crash and run to the window to check what happened. Out of the 160,000 road accidents happening in Canada every year, one decided to occur right in front of your Edmonton house and smash your parked car.

Fortunately, the intoxicated driver, who was driving on the wrong side of the road, was left unharmed. But unfortunately for you, you’ll need a new car. To cut costs and spend money wisely, you decide to buy a used vehicle. The first step in the not-so-short process of buying a pre-owned car is choosing from where or with whom you’re going to do business with. Basically, you have two choices: (1) private seller or (2) dealership. The following are the pros and cons of each option to help you choose and get you started on another road to car ownership:

Private Seller: Great Deals But With Less Legal Responsibilities

The best way to find a private car retailer is through newspaper ads or auto trading websites. From there, you could be able to spot good deals that are much cheaper compared to local dealerships. If you’re easily intimidated by smooth-talking salespeople, negotiating with private owners are less annoying and more convenient. All they want is to sell you their car and nothing else.

Unlike car dealerships Edmonton residents buy their used vehicles from, private sellers won’t be offering warranties and are not associated with business regulatory organizations. This means that you’ll be buying the car as it is. You’ll have to take the previous owner’s word regarding its reliability and condition.

Dealerships: A Safer Option But For a Much Higher Price

One of the perks of buying from a car dealership Edmonton locals trust is the fact that all their cars are thoroughly inspected and serviced prior to being put on sale. You’re also protected by consumer laws which hold the dealer responsible for any problems or defects the car might have. Dealerships likewise provide warranties, accept trade-ins, and have financing programs for clients in various monetary situations.

Of course, attached with the security and extra services car dealerships in Edmonton supply to their clients is a price tag that is more expensive than the one with a private seller. And unlike private retailers, car dealers are likely to keep on convincing you to get additional features for your vehicle.
