Warm Weather Conditions

Warm weather is the perfect time for shopping, no matter what you’re looking at buying. The summer months are some of the most popular and well trafficked at dealerships such as our at Davey Auto Sales, with many getting out in the sun, and wanting to stay outside to find a vehicle that works for them. Take advantage of the nice weather and sell your vehicle at a time when people are looking for their next vehicle.

Match Your Vehicle’s Strengths to the Time of Year

Similarly with selling your vehicle during the warm time of year, if your vehicle is of a unique style that’s akin to a certain type of weather it may also be best to sell it for when it excels as well. For example, you probably don’t want to be selling your convertible in the winter when snow is covering the ground and it’s frigid, as not many will be looking for that style at the moment. Conversely, a vehicle with all-wheel drive or one that’s particularly adept on the snow and ice-covered road would be in particularly high demand during this time of the year.

Take Advantage of Supply & Demand

Supply and demand is the biggest factor, and can obviously change throughout the year, or remain in a certain period of a long time, such as we’re experiencing now. With a lack of new inventory for new dealerships has come an increased demand for used vehicles over the past year, due to the continuing effects of the pandemic, supply chain issues, shipping and now the economy in general. Thus, with used vehicles in demand comes the perfect time to sell as you’ll be able to get a great value for a vehicle that’s greatly in need.
