Run Out Sales – What You Need to Know

New Year Run Out Sales

New Year, New Car. With 2020 well and truly underway, I am sure you have seen or heard car manufactures spruiking their end of year run out sales. If you have been waiting for the right time to purchase a new car, now might be the time for you.

What are Run Out Sales?

Car dealerships are looking to clear all of their 2019 plated models to make way for 2020 build cars. The 2019 build cars are the exact same car but as little as one month older, with bonus discounts from the Manufacturers to help Dealers make room for 2020 build cars. Think of it like buying a snow jacket in summer, you can usually find them at bargain prices at the end of the season to make way for the new summer stock.

Are You Really Getting a Good Deal?

Chances are you will end up getting a great deal. The dealerships will be looking to move as much stock and to do that, they will be throwing huge savings your way. Let’s not forget, that by using ProNovate to negotiate the price for you, you will soon become the envy of your friends with an even lower purchase price (fleet discounts anyone?)

What to Look Out For

The best thing to do is to get in early. The most popular and enticing run out models will be sold first, leaving limited stock to choose from. Steer clear of “unique” paint colours and interiors (pink with beige interior anyone?) and also cars with obscure factory options (unless granite trim or perfume dispensers are your thing).

Also watch out for models that haven’t been selling well or have been discontinued, sometimes these get hidden amongst the New Year Sales and can be mistaken for just being “an extra good deal”. e.g. 2019 saw the end for Infiniti as well as the Holden Astra and Commodore.

If dealerships are struggling to sell these cars, imagine what resale values will be like in 3 or 5 years’ time when you are looking to upgrade?
