1. New Models
Rental cars that are up for sale are often one or two years old, and thus, newer than used cars on a dealership lot. If you’re looking for a vehicle that’s still fairly new and stylish but more reasonably priced, consider purchasing a used rental car.
Rental cars receive regular maintenance from licensed mechanics. You can rest assured knowing that any previous oil changes, brake pads, and tires were all replaced by a professional and not a stranger in their home garage.
3. Vehicle History
Getting a vehicle’s clean bill of health from a dealership isn’t always possible. Often, vehicle history isn’t well documented by the previous owner. With a rental car, vehicle history such as accidents, oil changes, engine tune-ups, and tire rotations are documented, giving you a clear picture of the health of the vehicle.
Along with regular maintenance, rental cars are also well-kept on the inside. The interior dashboard, rugs, and upholstery are often professionally cleaned to make each rental appealing for the next driver. You’ll reap the benefits of a clean car when purchasing from a rental lot.
5. No Price Haggling
Rental car companies often price their vehicles for sale at reasonable prices, and less than what you’d expect to pay from a dealership. This leads to very little price haggling since prices aren’t inflated. If you don’t look forward to negotiating prices for such a large purchase, then consider buying from a rental facility.
