Before You Come to the Car Sale FAIRWINDS Labor Day Car Sale

So you’ve saved the date and plan on coming to the FAIRWINDS Labor Day Car Sale. You’re all set, right? Before you head out that weekend, there are a few things you can do to make your car sale buying experience even better.

Get pre-approved ahead of time. Of course we can help you at the sale, but save yourself some extra time and get pre-approved prior to the sale by applying on our website or stopping by your favorite branch. Early pre-approval means extra shopping time for you.

Find out the trade-in value of your car. By using our Auto Resource Center, we can help you understand how much your trade-in is worth ahead of time. This is important to know while you’re building your car-buying budget. Which leads you to the most important step…

Know your price. Be sure you know exactly how much you are willing to spend. Sounds simple, but it’s easy to fall in love with a car that is outside of your budget. Don’t exceed your maximum price point. If you’re unsure what your price limit should be, use our online calculators to help you determine what payment makes the most sense for your budget.

If you don’t find your perfect car match at the Labor Day Sale or if you’ll be out of town, our personal car concierge service is available to assist you at any time. You can contact us directly at 407.206.8122 or by visiting our online Auto Resource Center.
