Like real estate, there’s a great deal of paperwork involved since a vehicle is a big purchase. It’s not the same as buying a candy bar from the grocery store. Dealerships typically handle the detailed paperwork for a person, in such a way that all they have to do is sign the papers and they’re good-to-go. Dealers help with title transfers, registration, getting plates, etc.

Financing Options

Dealerships help people buying vehicles when they offer financing options. Can’t afford the purchase price all at once? Dealerships have options such that you can pay toward the full price over time, giving you months to do so while still enjoying the use of the vehicle you want or need.

Warranties and Repairs

Are you worried about something possibly going wrong with the vehicle you buy? With private party sales you’re not going to get a warranty. At dealerships, you often do. With a good warranty if something goes wrong within a certain time period then you don’t have to worry about incurring a big, additional expense to get it fixed– the warranty covers the repairs and/or replacement.

Furthermore, dealerships deal with vehicles all the time and they do their best to inspect them such that repairs are made before they’re sold to buyers. The term “certified pre-owned vehicles” refers to cars and trucks that have gone through official, professional inspections (and possible repairs) so the buyer knows they’re not getting a lemon.


Do you have an older vehicle to trade-in? Dealerships often take trade-ins, knocking off money from the purchase price of the newer vehicle, so the old vehicle is like a down payment on the new one. This is convenient for people who don’t have the time or inclination to sell their old car on their own. It’s also a good way to “get rid of” the old car in a quick and efficient way.

Legal Protection

Finally, it’s a good idea to buy a vehicle from a dealership because you’re afforded more legal protection should something go wrong. With a private seller, you could be “out of luck,” but a dealership is held accountable– having to follow laws such as disclosing if a vehicle is a salvaged one or not.
