Ordering vs. Buying Off The Lot

2022 Chevy Silverado 1500

With new vehicle inventories running low across the country, you may have wondered if you should special order your next new vehicle rather than buying one of the lot. More and more Huntington-area car-buyers are choosing to do just that—and for good reason! 

Ordering your car makes it much easier to get the features you really want, without paying for anything that you won’t actually use. Plus, you’ll never have to settle for a color or design that you don’t love. Ready to learn more? Read the guide below and find out if a custom Chevrolet could be right for you.

Benefits of Ordering Your New Chevrolet

Buying a car off the lot does have its benefits—you’ll be able to get a close look at the exact model you’re purchasing, and you can take your new car home to Wabash without delay. In fact, some customers prefer a “what you see is what you get” approach to car-buying.

However, buying off the lot can be a disadvantage when it comes to getting what you want, especially during periods of low inventory and high demand. That’s certainly the case right now, in the midst of pandemic-fueled chip shortages and production challenges.

It’s always worth your time to see what’s available on our lot in North Manchester—but if you don’t find something that precisely meets your needs, we can order it for you directly from the manufacturer. Building your own Chevrolet offers benefits like:

  • Not paying for features you don’t need or won’t use.
  • Working with an experienced staff who can help you to select upgrades and packages that are within your budget.
  • The freedom to design a vehicle with your preferred features and styling.
