The Desert Sun Used Difference for Sale in Alamogordo, NM
We understand that you have MANY options when selling, or purchasing a used or pre-owned vehicle.
What makes us different?
Let’s first chat about selling your car. If you are interested in trading, or selling your car, you can rest assured we will not only fairly value your vehicle, but we’ll prove to you why we land on the number and what sources we are using to value your vehicle. We don’t give prices and numbers blindly, and do so based on the market and book values.
What are ways to ensure you get top dollar for your vehicle? Take care of it!
What devalues your car?
– Cosmetic Flaws
– Mechanical Problems
– High Mileage
– Poorly maintained components, such as tires.
Have a banged up bumper? Hearing odd sounds? Driving more than 15,000/year? These are all things that can devalue and prevent you from receiving top dollar for your trade or sale.
WE MUST NOTE: We do not tend to take in late model year vehicles, OR vehicles over 100,000 miles.
Why do these things de-value your car?
If you are purchasing a used car, would you want to buy something that makes funny noises or is not clean or unkept? No way! We don’t want to sell those types of cars either.
We want to ensure the new owner of your car is happy with their purchase and there are many things that go into ensuring that. But to put it simply, what was not taken care of by the previous owner, our dealerships will now have to fix so the new buyer is happy and safe.
What does Desert Sun do to ensure the pre-owned vehicle is ready for a new buyer?
Once we agree on number and take in the trade or sale, the car goes directly to our Service department where it goes through an extensive inspection. We go through the ins and outs of the car, ensuring everything is running smoothly and is safe for it’s new owner. That means we look at everything from the engine to the seat belts so the buyer is confident in their new car.
We even have the new owner sign off on inspection sheets and CARFAX reports, so there is full transparency where the vehicle has been andwhat work was done so there are no secrets on the purchase.
After it gets inspected and repaired, if it needs any cosmetic work, this happens next. This can include everything to the interior or outside cosmetic repair.
Then, before the vehicle is ready to be sold, it heads over to the detail shop for a deep cleaning and a bath.
Once all that is complete, the vehicle is finally ready to be sold!
We understand not all pre-owned lots, or other dealers for that matter, go through this extensive process. We take pride in how we take care of the vehicles and our customers, so you can be sure we have done everything to the best of our ability to create a safe and quality experience now, and after you drive off our lot.
