Buying a new or used car is a big commitment because it is something that will be with you for a very long time. In order to find the car at a price that is right for you people do not mind travelling long distances, although they would much prefer to find a new or used car dealerships near them.
There are many ways in which you can find a dealer closer to home, such as searching car dealerships near me in a search engine, but we believe it is much easier to use an app. There are so many good apps to choose from for Android or iOS devices, and using these allows you to locate them easier because you will have your mobile device with you when you head to your local dealership, be it a new or used one.
The first app that we feel you should try out is KBB.com by Kelly Blue Book because it not only allows you to search for a car dealership in your area by zip code, but can also offer you new and used car prices, which is valuable when it comes to getting the right deal when trying to get the price down. We have seen it done on TV, and at least with some inside knowledge of the car you wish to go for, at least there is a better chance that you will not get ripped off. This app is available on Google Play and iTunes, although only applies to areas in the US, such as Springfield, Mo, Miami, NJ to name a few.
Another good app worth the download is Cars.com — New & Used Cars for Android and iOS, which has a whole section dedicated to finding your nearest dealerships, where you can then read reviews on them, find their location and their opening hours. We especially like the feature where you can compare models, which is invaluable when you have a list of vehicles that needs to be narrowed down based on what is right for you.
The third app for those of you in the US who are looking for a new or used car should try out Car Dealer Finder, which as you would imagine is free to download. The app allows you to search for car dealers near you by distance, which will then show those nearest to you. This app supports all Android devices, although we know by experience that this might not be true.
For those of you who live in the UK and have run searches for new and used car dealers near North Wales, Norwich, Kent, or Derby to name a few, then you will need an app dedicated to the United Kingdom. There are not as many on the Google Play or App Store, but one that we did find of interest was the Motors.co.uk car search.
This app allows you to search for your nearest car dealerships selling new or used cars. The app is able to connect to a database full of main or smaller dealers across the UK, and based on the results you can contact the dealer directly via the app.
Like we said, these sort of apps for the UK are limited when compared to the US, but you could give the Auto Trader Mobile a go, which is available on Android and iOS. While you cannot search directly for car dealers, you can run a search for the model car you need, then select traders closest to you. This will then give you the dealers that are nearest to your location.
We do hope these apps are of help to you, but if you know of another, then we would appreciate if you would share this with our readers.
