Man Signing Paperwork


Is now a good time to sell a car? Given the current automotive market, it absolutely is the right time to sell! The current chip shortage is making it difficult for car shoppers to buy new models, and the value of used cars is at a historic high. What’s more, dealerships in the New Bedford area are constantly looking to add to their used vehicle inventories, so there really is no better time than now to sell your car to Alden Mazda. Learn more about the chip shortage, selling a car to a dealership vs. private buyer, and more before you visit us in Fairhaven.



Why Is There a Chip Shortage?

Cars rely heavily on semiconductor chip technology to operate properly, and many car components require them to function. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, chip manufacturers have struggled to keep up with demand. This means that there is a significant delay in building new cars, which in turn results in higher prices on brand-new models. All of this is to say that used cars are more popular than ever.
