When you’re shopping for a used car, you have a choice: You can buy one from a used car dealership or you can buy one from a private seller. There are advantages and disadvantages to each option. Naturally, here at Carweb Inc., we think it’s wisest to make such a big purchase at a used car dealer. We’ll tell you why.

Why it’s better to buy a used car from a dealership in Fredericksburg, VA


When you buy from a used car dealer, the dealer handles all of the paperwork associated with the transaction, including title transfer and registration. When you buy from a private seller, you and the seller are responsible for all of the paperwork, including the bill of sale and handling taxes and fees. You’ll have to go to the DMV as well.


Unlike a private seller, we offer convenient financing. In fact, you can get pre-approved by clicking here. Save yourself the hassle of shopping around for a bank loan.


Many of our cars come with bumper-to-bumper factory warranties. You won’t find that from a private seller. Used cars are typically sold “as is,” which means you’re saddled with any problems that crop up after the sale.

Condition of vehicles

All of our cars have been thoroughly inspected and, if need be, repaired to like-new condition. Each one comes with a Carfax vehicle history report, so you know exactly what you’re going to get. When buying from a private seller, either you or the seller must take the time and expense to have a mechanic inspect the vehicle.

Finding the right car

Finding the perfect used car for your needs is easy at Carweb Inc. We have a huge inventory of all makes, models, body styles and price ranges. Make your car-buying experience a one-stop shop instead of combing through online classifieds looking for the right vehicle.


If you already have a car and are looking to upgrade to a newer one, trading in the old one is a great option to put in a down payment. Private sellers want cash, not your old vehicle. We need your used car to expand our inventory. Trading it in saves you the trouble of having to become a used car seller yourself.

Legal protection

Used car dealerships like Carweb Inc. follow stringent laws designed to protect consumers from things like purchasing a lemon or a salvaged vehicle. Private sellers aren’t bound by the same laws, making a private sale a risky proposition. It’s important to buy from someone you trust.
