It’s probably safe to say that 2020 hasn’t really been anyone’s year. While a global pandemic has taken a heavy toll on lives and businesses with no concrete end in sight, people are looking forward to the end of the year with hopes that 2021 will be better. The pandemic has shifted what we all consider normal, from the minutiae of our daily routines to altering whole industries—the automotive industry included. However, that doesn’t make owning a vehicle any less of a necessity, no matter what your new normal is. 

At Palladino Lending Solutions we understand that the show must go on, even if the pandemic has brought any sort of financial difficulties. As a matter of fact, that’s what we specialize in: helping you find a solution when it comes to financing the vehicle you need—pandemic or otherwise. So read on, and learn more about how to buy a vehicle during a pandemic with Sudbury’s Palladino Lending Solutions!

What Can You Expect Buying A Vehicle During the Pandemic?

Things are different everywhere you look, and that’s no different at Palladino Lending Solutions—or any of the 11 dealerships in the Palladino Auto Group. Simply strolling into the dealership and test-driving a vehicle may not be an option, but that’s part of the reason why we regularly update our online inventory to be as accurate as possible. Give us a call and we’ll be happy to go over your financing options over the phone; that way, you can explore our inventory before we take the next step, whether that involves visiting us at the dealership or simply Skyping or FaceTiming so you can get a look at the vehicle. We’re happy to work with you to not only help you find the right vehicle, but to do it in a safe and efficient manner.

Why Buy During a Pandemic?

The reality is, life isn’t slowing down due to the pandemic. If you’re still employed, having reliable transportation is more important than ever—especially if you don’t feel comfortable using public transportation or ride sharing services at this time. Plus, you can actually score a pretty great deal on a vehicle right now; many automotive companies are actually running a variety of promotions and incentives in order to sell new vehicles that they’ve already manufactured. 

If the pandemic has been particularly stressful and you’re already in a new or late model vehicle, now is also a great time to consider refinancing or trading your vehicle in for a lower payment. Our credit experts can help you find something that’s a bit more within your current budget, in order to provide you with a bit more breathing room on the monthly bills.
