You've been on the hunt for the ultimate driving machine--but you may be shopping on a more limited budget, or you just want to save a few thousand dollars on your purchase. To hit all of the must-haves on your list, you're likely considering buying a used or Certified Pre-Owned BMW model.

But there are a lot of factors that go into buying a used vehicle, and especially a used luxury car: prior service records, environment, age, mileage, etc. Most of that is out of your hands, and finding the best deal on a pre-owned vehicle generally comes down to luck.

But what if there was a better way?

When you explore your options for a competitively-priced loaner vehicle from Hendrick BWM, you could get the performance and luxury you want, at a price that you won't find at just any used-car dealership.

What are BMW Loaner Vehicles?

Loaner vehicles--also known as courtesy cars--are dealer-owned models that stay on the dealership lot and are used exclusively for business purposes, including serving as temporary rentals for service-center clients whose personal vehicles will be in service for longer than they can afford to wait.

Interestingly, loaner car inventories are actually the reason why luxury vehicles--like BMW cars--have one of the highest resell rates within 12-18 months of purchase date; but it's because BMW dealers are incentivized to purchase new vehicles to stock their courtesy vehicle fleets, use them for a year or more as a convenience to their service customers, and then add them to their own pre-owned inventory.

Dealers benefit by offering premium services to clients and by, essentially, grooming their own stock of used cars. You benefit, too.

What are the Benefits of Buying a Loaner Vehicle?

  • Competitive prices
  • Higher standards of quality
  • Total confidence in your pre-owned BMW

Luxury vehicles take the largest hit of depreciation within their first 1-3 years of service; if you buy new, you are responsible for that loss of value. But when you choose to buy a retired service loaner, you avoid the largest drop in value, and the dealership--not you--takes on the weight of that cost. However, it's worth it to the dealer to spend a little in order to satisfy their client base.

Our loaner vehicles live on-site at Hendrick BMW when they're not serving clients. So, when they need an oil change, tire rotation, detailing, or minor work, our courtesy cars are treated by the expert technicians at our service center. We are diligent in our performed services, so you never have to worry about whether the used BMW you buy has received a high quality of care.

We hand-select the vehicles that join our loaner car fleet, so you know that you're choosing from the very best of the very best.
