Generally, the dealerships are given for specific cities, states or regions, depending on the demand of ambulances. The ambulance dealers can have presence in one city/area or have dealerships at multiple locations in the country. You just need to locate the nearest ambulance dealer to buy one, after deciding the brand you want.
What to Look for in an Ambulance Dealer Before Buying?
If you scout the Internet or your local yellow pages for ambulance dealers in your area, you’ll surely come across few with loyalties to different brands. However, once you’ve zeroed in on the brand you want, it is very important to select the right dealer. Here are some tips that will help you in deciding the right dealer for your ambulance purchases:
1. Firstly, if possible, schedule your ambulance purchases to year-end when most ambulance dealers will offer handsome discounts and freebies on their sales. As far as possible, avoid buying ambulances during the year when ambulance dealers are reluctant to even talk about discounts.
2. No matter what time of the year you buy, always negotiate with the ambulance dealers. If he is uncompromising on price, try to extract some freebies, like additional insurance cover, added equipment, etc. You should not be reluctant while negotiating with the ambulance dealers. At the end of the day, it’s your hard-earned money and you should look to save as much as possible.
3. Before buying, you must verify that the dealer is in fact authorized to sell the brand’s ambulances. Sometimes, it may happen that the company has withdrawn its dealership or the dealership has been expired, but the dealer still continues to sell the ambulances in order to clear the stock. He may offer handsome discounts and other freebies to attract as many customers as possible. However, you must be wary about such sales, as the dealer is unlikely to provide any after-sale services. If you have some grievances regarding your purchase, the dealer won’t be in a position to address them as he is no longer answerable to the company. In such a scenario, you will end up chasing the company officials for grievance redressal.
