There’s probably not a single subject left on earth that hasn’t been made into an idle game. The list is endless. Right now, one of the newest clicker games on the Google Play Store is Used Car Dealer. It revolves around the business of buying and selling pre-owned or “second hand” vehicles. Sounds boring? Not at all. It’s very addictive, especially the bargaining bit which really immerses a player into this whole trading business.
You might want to read our Used Car Dealer Game review to know more about this game if you are too curious about gameplay. And if you want to earn huge profits, unlock and collect rare and unique vehicles and expand your dealership, read these useful tips and strategies:
Bargain or Get Help from the Bunny Girl Buyer
Bargaining is the best way to buy used cars at dirt cheap prices, but it’s a manual task. The game does provide a buyer who automatically acquires pre-owned cars for you, but you will need to upgrade cost control and the buyer to a very high level in order to purchase cars at a faster rate and a very cheap price automatically. Tapping the “Buy” building will give you access to these two upgrades. If you want to bargain manually, read on.
Tap on a car waiting at the purchase point. The bargain box will pop on the screen. It will show the market price of the car and the current buy price. Tap the green button to bargain. Keep tapping until the button turns red. The price shown on the screen will be the lowest the seller would want to offer when the button turns red. You can tap the button again to bargain more, but there are high chances of rejection. However, very few owners may accept the lowest of the lowest price if you negotiate lower than the final bargain offer.
Besides bargaining, you can also use the “Bunny Girl Buyer” boost for faster Acquistion at a cost as low as $1! You will have to activate this boost from the Acquisition screen (Tap the yellow “Buy” building to do this). To activate, you must watch a video. Once activated, an attractive girl will purchase cars almost instantly at just $1. This boost remains active only for 2 minutes.
Boost Sales Profits of a Used Car
Once the purchased car enters a sales lot, it’s time to sell it to prospective buyers. But you would want to increase the selling price of each car and the best way to do is to boost the “Sale Price” of a lot. Just tap on a lot and hit the first upgrade.
Doing this will increase “Lot Profit” by a certain percentage. You can see the Lot Profit bar increasing when you upgrade the Sale Price. Do this for each lot to earn more money from each used car sale.
Increase the Frequency of Customers by Upgrading Sales Speed
If you want more and more buyers or increase the frequency of customers in Used Car Dealer game, you will have to upgrade a vehicle lot’s “sales speed”. The sales lot is where cars are parked and customers arrive to buy them. Tap on a lot and then tap on the “Upgrade” button beside sales speed. Doing this will increase the working efficiency of your salesmen by a certain percentage.
Increasing the sales speed ultimately boosts the frequency of buyers in a certain lot. This is because your salesmen sell the car to them quickly and no buyers will have to wait in the queue. Buyers will keep assembling near the lot, purchase and and drive off from the lot.
Along with sale speed, make sure you also hire more salesmen. Doing this will also increase the “customers served” per minute (you can see this section just under “Lot Profit” when you tap on a lot), thereby increasing the number of buyers visiting the lot. The lower the number, the fewer buyers a vehicle sales lot will attract.
Buy Special Vehicles at Extremely Low Prices
From the Bigfoot monster truck to the famous and futuristic “Back to the Future” car, this game lets you buy ’em all! These special vehicles have a very high market value than normal cars and can be purchased at an extremely low price through a fun mini-game. These vehicles stop at a “VIP” parking space for a few minutes.
Tap on a special vehicle when it stops on the VIP area and then tap on the “Start” button to begin the mini-game.
Tap the button repeatedly until the red bar slides to the lowest price on the left side of the gauge. You will have only a few seconds to do this.
Next, tap on the buy button to purchase the special vehicle at that price. The vehicle will move to on the sales lot. If there’s no space available it will drive off. Special vehicles keep arriving at the VIP parking spot. So, don’t worry if you lose one.
