100% Remote Buying Process | Winchester, VA
With social distancing guidelines and stay-at-home orders in effect all over the US, purchasing things in person can be an active health risk in the right situations. As a result, it can seem downright impossible to get ahold of some goods and services. For instance, buying a car has to be done in person, right?
Here at Miller Honda, we’ve adapted our buying process so you can do everything online, from calculating payments to scheduling a time for a home delivery test drive. Take a look.
1: Buying vs Leasing
First off, you need to figure out which you’ll be doing, buying or leasing. Each has its pros and cons. Most customers know which they want before they look at getting a new vehicle, but it’s worth weighing each option before any purchase.
2: Incentives and Specials
Often, manufacturers and dealers are running specials on their inventory. By checking out our specials beforehand, you can see which vehicle you’ll get the best deal on.
3: Schedule a Test Drive
Once you figure out what you want, schedule a test drive. Usually this is a step that requires you to be onsite. However, Miller Honda is now offering home delivery test drives, where one of our team members will deliver a vehicle to your residence and then return it to the dealership after the test drive is completed.
Unless you’ve got the dough to pay in full, you’re going to need some financing. By getting pre-approval, you’ll be able to see the types of rates you would get on the vehicle you’d like beforehand, helping you make a better purchasing decision and speeding up the final steps of the process.
5: Trade-In Calculator
Your current ride could knock off a significant portion of the price on a new vehicle. A trade-in essentially adds more money to your down payment, meaning better financing rates and less money to pay in the long run. Use our handy trade-in calculator to see how much your current car is worth.
6: Payment Calculator
Once your pre-approval comes back, you can plug your available financing rates into our payment calculator along with the down payment, trade-in amount, and other details to see how much you’ll be paying each month.
7: Purchase and Home Delivery
Once all the other steps are complete, you can purchase your vehicle and have it delivered to your home. All without stepping foot in a dealership.
