How to Choose a Polaris Dealer

Getting a great deal on a Polaris recreational vehicle often depends on finding the right dealer.

After you’ve made the decision to become the owner of a recreational vehicle, either an ATV or a Side by Side, your next step is to find a good dealer who puts you at ease as you browse around, considering the pros and cons of different models. Even if you know exactly what type of Polaris vehicle you want, there’s no guarantee that the dealer is going to be overly helpful during the sales process. Therefore, consider these helpful pointers in choosing the best Polaris dealer for your needs.

Length of Time in Business

The ATV market certainly has its ups and downs, and it’s not uncommon for dealerships to suddenly go out of business. In this rough and tumble sales world, where only the strongest survive, look for dealers who have been in business longer than one year. Dealerships open for several years are even better. In the recreational vehicle market, longevity matters, and a successful Polaris dealer will have years of ATV sales experience.  

Dealer Reputation

Whether you’re seeking four wheelers for kids, or looking for a vehicle for adult fun, buying from someone you trust is important. It doesn’t take long for word-of-mouth to spread about a dealer’s reputation. Dealers must earn the trust of consumers, and you can easily find out which dealers are honest, and which have a less than stellar reputation. Ask people you know who own a Polaris about their Polaris dealer experience. Check online reviews, and visit the website of the Better Business Bureau to see if there are any complaints about specific dealerships.

Good Dealership Location

You may have to travel a bit to get to a reputable Polaris dealer that carries the Polaris models you’re interested in buying. Successful dealerships are usually located in areas where interest in recreational vehicles is high. The facilities should be well-maintained, and the vehicles should be clean and in good condition.

Variety of Inventory

If you have your heart set on popular models such as the Polaris 570 or the Polaris RZR 1000, be sure the dealership you visit offers what you want. Ideally, dealers should have a robust inventory selection for you to enjoy browsing. Avoid disappointment and unnecessary travel expenses by contacting the dealership ahead of time to ask if they have your desired ATV for sale. If Polaris parts are what you seek, find out all you can about the quality of parts sold.

Customer Service Quality

When looking at ATVs and four wheelers for sale, the last thing you want is a pushy, rude salesperson breathing down your neck. Buying a recreational vehicle should be a fun, pleasant experience, and you’ll get that when the dealership staff is friendly, helpful and bend over backward to provide everything you need. A reputable Polaris dealer can provide this easy-going sales experience.

Sales and Special Deals

Top dealers selling Polaris model vehicles offer special deals throughout the year. Periodically, models go on sale or come with special buyer incentives, and you can enjoy savings by staying on top of special offers.
