Winter: The Best Time to Buy a Used TrailerDecember 17, 2019 by Kyle McFarlane
Are you planning to buy a trailer? Well, that’s a huge investment, and, therefore, be sure to purchase one at the right time so that you don’t throw your money down the drain. In case you didn’t know, figuring out when to buy a trailer can save you lots of money. There are many used trailers for sale, and, therefore, you have a variety to choose from. Even so, buy at the right time to save some money.
While most impulsive buyers would time the good weather and purchase a trailer at this time, it pays to buy one when there are only a few buyers interested. At least you won’t end up feeling robbed after purchasing one.
HERE’S WHEN TO BUY A USED TRAILER, IN CASE YOU NEED ONE.
BUYING A TRAILER DURING WINTER
The best time to buy a trailer is during winter, and especially in October and November when the sales go down. If you walk into any dealership during this time, you’ll get offers and discounts that are much better than the ones you’d get during the peak months. Because of the low sales volume, they’ll be willing to sell the trailer at a discounted price compared to spring and summer. So, if you’d like to buy a trailer within your budget, wait until winter sets in.
BEFORE A NEW MODEL IS RELEASED
When a new model is about to be unveiled, the dealers usually start clearing their stocks to refresh their inventory. While not all dealerships will offer the same discounts, with proper research and a little patience, you’ll get a good offer. Usually, new trailers are released towards the end of winter, which still makes winter the ideal season to buy a trailer. As new trailer models come out, most owners would want to sell their old trailers to get the incoming models. As such, they sell them at a lower price to catch up with the new models.
WHEN THE SNOW STARTS TO MELT
If you don’t mind buying a used trailer, it would be best if you buy one at the onset of summer and spring. Usually, at this time, the manufacturers roll out the trailer models, and as such, the old ones are sold at heavy discounts. Additionally, most trailers have a low resale value during this time as most owners tend to do away with their old trailers. Consider getting a used trailer that’s at most 2 years old to save a few dollars.
When it comes to buying a used trailer, don’t make rash decisions and throwing your money down the drain. Knowing what you want and when to get it will save you a lot of money. If you know when the new trailer models will hit the market or when the sales will take a downturn, you can take advantage of this and get your trailer at a relatively cheap price.
