Why it’s important to buy a car from a dealer

If you’re thinking about buying a used car but you’re uncertain about whether to turn to a private seller or a dealer, we’ve put together a list of reasons why buying from a dealer is the best option. At Werribee GWM Haval, we’ve been selling and servicing both new and used vehicles for many years, and pride ourselves on our expert advice and approachable transparency.

Buying a new or used car can be both stressful and complicated. Using a dealership really can eliminate the stress from buying your next vehicle because we genuinely care about building relationships with customers. We also have the expertise to reassure you that you’re making a purchase that you’ll be happy with for years to come.

You can trust the condition

When you buy a used car from a reputable dealership, we fix up cosmetic faults and give the vehicle a full mechanical check to make sure it’s roadworthy before you drive it away. Having a qualified mechanic look over your car before you buy means that you can trust that the condition of your vehicle is what we say it is. When you buy privately it’s a little different, because a private seller doesn’t necessarily have to worry about their reputation in the same way.

Full transparency

Wondering what your new car has been through in the past? Has it had major work done on it that you’d rather know about beforehand? As a licenced dealer, we are required to provide a full car history check, so you’re never left fretting about its history.

As an authorised dealership, we must also stick to rigorous motor car trader obligations and a code of ethics that protect buyers from unethical behaviour. Statutory warranties are enforced by the Australian government to protect used car buyers from major faults. If you buy privately, you’re offered no such protection if your car develops problems down the line. In the rare situation that a problem does arise, you can contact us, and we’ll be there for you.

Simply drive away

It’s great to buy a used car from a dealer because it means that your drive-away price includes all of your costs. That means you can get on with enjoying your new purchase without the headaches.

When you choose to buy a new or used car from a dealer rather than a private seller, we’ll take care of the paperwork, transfers, and registration processes for you. We also offer an array of financial solutions to meet your individual needs – something you’ll rarely encounter when buying from a private seller.

Professional support

When you buy a used car from a dealer, you can ask as many questions as you like, and we love to answer them. We know our vehicles inside out, so you don’t have to do hours of research before coming into our Werribee dealership – just ask our friendly team and we’ll answer all of your questions. We spend time with you, discussing your driving habits, requirements, safety needs and personal technology preferences.

Further down the line, when you need a service, you can rely on the fact that all of our technicians at Werribee GWM Haval have gone through rigorous training and are extremely knowledgeable about all Haval models. We have access to all the right diagnostic tools to support you with your new or used model for years to come.
