When it comes time to turn in an old car for a new one, some folks prefer to do so at a dealership rather than sell their car privately. Many find the process to be a positive experience; for some, it’s a tax credit while for others, it’s credit towards a new car, or saving time on the selling process. Selling privately involves the headache of sorting through offers, talking to interested buyers, and meeting those potential buyers to show the car. By trading a vehicle into a dealership, sellers save time and can complete a transaction in one day.
Manual vehicle inspections often leave customers feeling discouraged and suspicious that they’re being taken advantage of. This can make it less likely to be proactive about regular inspections which can further lead to unsafe cars on the road. Digital vehicle inspections are changing all of this, especially road safety.
