How to safely buy a car while staying home during a health crisis

SheCar understands the importance of keeping your family healthy, safe, and free of unnecessary exposure––especially now during the COVID-19 pandemic.

If you have to buy a vehicle, now is actually a really good time price-wise, but you shouldn’t have to risk your health to do so.

At SheCar, we’ve removed both the hassles and the handshakes from the entire car buying process. Here’s how we make sure you’re able to buy your car safely.

The healthiest way to buy a vehicle today 

#1: Stay home. 

Conduct your entire car buying transaction virtually, from within the comfort of your own four walls. At SheCar we do this by screen-sharing so you can see everything we see while talking on the phone together or via video chat.

#2: Maintain your standards. 

Kick the tires by examining in-depth condition reports which detail everything from a tiny scratch, to precise tire-tread, to past repairs that are only apparent to a body shop expert. If your dealer doesn’t have an extensive condition report, move on.

The report will also identify features like heated seats and sunroofs helping assure it has the features you want. Likewise, if you see something you don’t like, skip that vehicle and move on to evaluate another–the options are endless and the perfect car is out there waiting for you. 

 #3: Expect (or demand) accountability. 

The very first price discussed with you should be what appears on the bill of sale–period. Whether you’re making the purchase at auction with SheCar, or from a retail dealer, the price evaluations should never, ever change at any point from first contact to final bill of sale. Not even by a penny.

#4: Check the condition of your vehicle.

Print out a copy of the condition report once you’ve made a purchase. When the vehicle arrives at your door use the condition report to confirm that the vehicle has arrived exactly as expected. There should be absolutely no deviations.  

#5: Be confident and proud of your purchase. 

There are a lot of unknowns in this world, especially when it comes to keeping both our families and our finances safe. Finding the perfect car at the best price possible is a great reason to celebrate!

At SheCar, we want to help you to have a safe and friendly car buying experience that makes you happy, without risking your health, well-being, and peace of mind.

Please contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to helping you find your dream car!
