Though the internet seems to be taking over many of the aspects of retail, for the motorhome and caravan sales it’s far from there yet. In fact, we’re seeing more and more that motorhome buyers are sticking to local dealers where they’re guaranteed not only a good bargain, but good service too.
A good part of the value of going to a dealer is the after-sales care. Even with a good motorhome insurance policy in hand, there are savings to be made from forming a relationship with a particular retailer. Often dealers are happy to offer considerable savings on aftercare packages, and this is also a common part of the bargaining process when buying a motorhome.
Equally, dealers are experts on the sort of motorhomes they offer and although there is always a distinct sales aspect to any motorhome sold, they really do know what they’re talking about. For motorhome buyers, advice on making the right choice is essential and whether that’s differentiating between two different brands, or even just two different sizes of motorhome, any advice is usually gladly taken.
The advantage of being able to see a motorhome in the flesh is also immensely appealing to motorhome buyers who may otherwise start thinking about ordering or buying online. Dealers are able to offer a comprehensive tour of the features of motorhome and, usually, know them quite literally inside out. The pros and cons of any particular model are easy to draw out if you have someone who really knows what they’re talking about.
It’s this kind of service that really appeals to motorhome buyers and, unlike many of the consumer goods on the market at the moment, motorhomes are incredibly personal. It’s a lot of money to spend on something you don’t really get along with and the value of a good aftercare, sales and advice service are really a force to be reckoned with.
