Alaska used car prices run amok in ‘ridiculous’ market https://cheapautoinsuronline.com/alaska-used-car-prices-run-amok-in-ridiculous-market/ Tue, 28 Jun 2022 02:31:44 +0000 https://cheapautoinsuronline.com/alaska-used-car-prices-run-amok-in-ridiculous-market/ Pamela Linderman, right, talks to Morgan Johnson, sales clerk at Vito’s Auto Sales in North Anchorage, as she browses through the used car lot Friday, June 17, 2022.

For the second year in a row, used vehicle prices are skyrocketing nationally and in Alaska.

Cars that cost $15,000 before the pandemic now sell for around $23,000, after prices in Alaska have soared more than 50% since 2020, according to federal data.

The surge in costs clearly exceeds that of other raw materials in a context of generalized national inflation. And they turned the Alaskan auto market upside down.

Used vehicles can fetch more today than two years ago — unheard of before the pandemic, sellers say. And with a low supply, it can take months to find a car. Many buyers say they are paying thousands of dollars more than they expected for high mileage cars and trucks.

Barbara and Marty Leichtung flew to Anchorage from Homer, where they live, to find the car they needed, a 2016 Honda CRV they had found on a previous trip. They got it back last week, after Continental Honda needed time to do some maintenance.

The couple paid about $27,000, said Marty Leichtung, a retired North Slope oilfield worker.

[Biden calls for 3-month suspension of gasoline and diesel taxes]

The car would have sold for less than $20,000 before the pandemic, a salesperson said.

“That’s a lot of money for a 2016 car, but that’s the market these days,” Leichtung said.

The search took a few months because there weren’t many CRVs, he said. The car has 85,000 miles, but should last for years, he said.

The couple could have bought a new CRV for an extra $8,000, he said. But he stuck with a used car to stay thrifty, with the fragile US economy, he said.

“Now is not a good time to take too much money out of your savings,” he said.

“A mint for a car”

Auto dealers say the problem is rooted in the limited supply of new cars, underscored by empty showrooms at dealerships.

Delays in the manufacture and shipment of microchips and other auto parts, caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, continue to reduce the availability of new vehicles, they say.

This reduced the number of vehicles that once restocked the used car market in Alaska.

“It’s a direct impact of COVID,” said Jose McPherson of Good Guys Auto Sales, located near Gambell Street in downtown Anchorage. “These are supply chain issues. It’s the lack of microchips and raw materials to make cars. It is the lack of individuals to produce the products. It’s kind of a perfect storm, unfortunately.

With new cars hard to buy — they have to be ordered months in advance — car rental companies and individuals are holding on to their existing vehicles, further reducing supply, McPherson and other dealers said. Adding to the problem, small business owners who rent vehicles through Turo, pick up used vans and other second-hand vehicles.

[Fed’s interest rate hikes may mark start of tough new economic climate]

Dealers, getting fewer trade-ins, say they’re buying more and more cars at very competitive Lower 48 auctions. Add in the auction fees and the cost of shipping the car to Alaska, and sticker prices can rise well above the prices listed in the Kelley Blue Book and other guides, they say.

The prices are turning some buyers away, McPherson said last week over the phone as he placed bids at an online used-car auction in Washington state.

“Prices are high, but it’s not because I want to mint every car,” McPherson said last week. “It’s because I pay a mint for a car.”

On the other hand, people with a car for sale can make good deals.

This spring, Wasilla resident Sean Fitzpatrick traded in his 2018 Ford Edge SUV at an Anchorage dealership for $24,500. It was $500 more than he paid two years ago, after driving 50,000 miles.

“It was a huge shock to me because it had 85,000 miles when I sold it,” he said. “And there was cosmetic damage, door knocks, a crack in the windshield and tail light.”

Cars that wear out this much don’t normally increase in value, he said.

“This market is really ridiculous right now,” said Fitzpatrick, who commutes between Wasilla and Anchorage to work for the Alaska Department of Corrections.

In return, Fitzpatrick bought a 2020 Nissan Maxima for $30,000, a decent price, he said. It was the full-size sedan he wanted.

But it took nine months to find it.

“There just weren’t a lot of options,” he said. “I think I came across maybe nine vehicles in the class I was looking for, and most had over 50,000 miles or had cosmetic issues.”

Others are not so lucky.

Amanda Toorak, a city worker from the village of Kaktovik in northwest Alaska, paid nearly $36,000 for a 2015 Jeep Wrangler in May. It had 70,000 miles on it, she said. She found it after a month of searching in Fairbanks and Anchorage.

“It’s pretty crazy how high the prices are now,” she said. “I mean, if I had known the prices would be this high, I would have bought a car a few years ago and it might have cost $20,000 less.”

Toorak said getting his car to the village would require a barge expedition across the Arctic Ocean, adding more than $4,500. But she needs the Wrangler to ferry supplies and loved ones to the beach for whaling hunts that could begin in August, she said.

Used cars are a ‘strange outlier’, even in times of widespread inflation

Used car prices in Alaska and the United States have jumped higher than most other commodities as inflation hits levels not seen in decades, said Neal Fried, an economist at the Labor Department. and Alaskan workforce.

“It’s a weird outlier,” he said.

Alaska’s annual inflation rate in April jumped 7.5%, according to federal data. But used car prices in Alaska jumped 23.1%, while new vehicle prices rose only 3.1%.

Used car prices rose even more the previous year, after a period of stability.

The domestic used-car market has also seen a price spike since 2020, Fried said.

Price spikes, at least recently, have challenged the adage that cars quickly lose value, he said.

Dealerships say they are seeing more and more people out of the used car market.

“You can’t even find anything decent for less than $10,000 anymore,” said Vito Ungaro, owner of Vito’s Auto Sales on Muldoon Road in northeast Anchorage.

Before the pandemic, he was selling most cars for around $15,000. Now it’s over $20,000, he said.

Rising car prices and rising interest rates drive up borrowing costs. Gas prices are also squeezing budgets, he said. They recently hit a record high of $5.61 per gallon in Alaska, according to the Alaska Automobile Association.

“When you increase the cost of a car from $3,000 to $5,000, it’s hard on people,” he said.

‘Why would I pay that for a used car?’

Marten Martensen, owner of Continental Auto Group with lots off Old Seward Highway in Anchorage, said some customers balk at high used car prices.

“They come into the store and say I paid that for my new car, so why should I pay that for a used car?” he said.

With supply chain issues continuing to delay car manufacturing, customers ordering new cars typically wait about three months before they arrive, he said. In May, a shipment to Alaska of 25 new Nissan vehicles was canceled at the last minute, he said.

“I don’t blame the manufacturers,” he said. “They want to sell cars. But the supply chain is so broken.

Martensen said that with the supply of new cars low, the company is putting more emphasis on selling used cars.

But overall inventory is down, as are sales and profits, he said. It now employs about 180 people, 70 fewer than before the pandemic, he said.

He said one positive is that people are keeping their cars longer, which is boosting Continental Auto’s repair business.

“The service and parts side is carrying us now,” he said.

Martensen said he’s heard from manufacturers that it could be two years before the new-car market recovers.

Fried, the economist, said that could help stabilize the used-car market. And if the U.S. economy slips into a recession, that could reduce demand for used cars, creating downward pressure on prices, Fried said.

No one knows when or if that will happen, Fried said.

Are you planning a road trip this summer?

When it comes to travel, nothing beats the freedom of a road trip. You can explore nooks and crannies throughout your journey, places you might not discover if you’re flying to your destination. It also gives you the flexibility to spend your time the way you want, as you are not locked into rigid plane, train or bus schedules. On a road trip, you are (literally and figuratively) in control.

But while spontaneity is the golden secret of a road trip, the real key is planning. Being prepared for the unexpected means you can take those extra detours or paths less travelled. And to help you get the most out of your travels this summer, here are 6 tips that can save you time, money, and headaches while you’re on the road.

1. Create a budget

The least fun, but most valuable thing you can do before hitting the road is budgeting. To get started, list all the known costs you’ll face, including your accommodations (and consider options for staying at hotels, campsites, or Airbnbs, a daily budget for food, entertainment, gasoline and additional expenses).

To get the most out of every dollar, look into any discounts your membership programs might offer, such as CAA Rewards® gives its members access to thousands of partner economies around the world.

2. Plan your route

By taking the time to plan your itinerary, not only will you have a good idea of ​​how to book your overnight stays along the journey, but you can also find these hidden gems along the way. This will help make the journey much less stressful and give you the opportunity to discover the interesting attractions, restaurants and stops that make the trip perfectly unique to your interests.

3. Keep your travel documents handy

There’s nothing worse than the anxiety that comes with rummaging through your luggage trying to find a specific piece of paper, emptying your glove box looking for your car insurance slip, or doing Scroll through your inbox trying to find booking information.

Before hitting the road, make sure you have all these documents together:

  • Vehicle registration or ownership

  • Car Rental Confirmation

  • Hotel details or camping/parking details

  • Credit card

  • Driving license

  • Passport (if crossing the border)

  • Your CAA membership card for roadside assistance

If you prefer to be on the safe side, you can even have two copies of these documents or keep a dedicated folder on your phone with everything in one place.

4. Get the right insurance

Listen, insurance is rarely a fun thing to consider when you’re going. However, it’s the kind of thing you’ll be happy to have if you need it, and you’ll be relieved to have the right insurance if the unexpected happens. There are two types of insurance to take out before your trip: travel insurance and car insurance.

You’ll need travel insurance because OHIP doesn’t always cover out-of-province medical expenses, so if you have an emergency in another province, you may have to pay for some of the costs yourself. expenses – if you don’t. not the right insurance.

You will also want to get up-to-date auto insurance. Many Canadians have adjusted their policies because they’ve worked from home or driven less in the past two years, but you may need to get more comprehensive coverage for your car if you plan to drive a lot on your next trip. .

5. Slow and Steady Packing

There are two types of travelers: those who create exhaustive packing lists weeks or months in advance, and those who frantically pack their bags the day before they leave. Be part of the first group to take the stress out of planning your trip.

Start making a list when planning your trip, with specific items or specialized equipment you might need for the different activities you’ll be doing. If there are things you won’t be using until you leave, set them aside now and gradually put away your clothes and essentials as the trip draws near. This should also include printing several copies of the materials we listed above, as well as snacks, toiletries, and anything else you know you’ll need.

6. Check your car

The sixth and final pre-trip tip is to take a look around your car. A tune-up and oil change is essential for your car because the last thing you want to deal with is a broken down car. You should also check your windshield for splinters and repair them, because parking your car in the sun is one of the fastest ways for a splinter to turn into a crack, which means you may need to replace your entire windshield.

For added peace of mind, make sure you have roadside assistance like CAA, in case your car has any problems during the trip. CAA’s Mobile Oil Change and Mobile Chip Repair are available in select areas of Ottawa, where they can come to your location when it’s convenient for you, so you can keep packing and checking off another task simultaneously.

And of course, the seventh unofficial task is to make sure you have fun on your trip! Traveling can always present unexpected challenges, but by taking the time to prepare, you can ensure that your trip is filled with great memories that you will remember for years to come.

Travel safely!

South Haven is a small town on Lake Michigan in the western part of the state. It has long been a tourist destination, and short-term rental websites have made it easier for tourists to visit and for owners to rent their properties. But short-term rentals are divisive, with some residents fighting to ban them in many parts of the city.

In 2018, the city enacted a local ordinance that requires short-term rentals to be registered and subject to annual inspections. The ordinance also requires rental property owners to have a local property manager or live near the property themselves. Today, there are 550 registered short-term rentals in South Haven.

“The prescription works wonderfully. There are less than ten complaints a year, and if you actually read the complaints, they are about residents, not renters,” Ryan Servatius, a property manager, told Michigan Capitol Confidential. “It’s sad because the city has become very divided. Some buyers have decided not to buy a home in South Haven because they read our chat lines and don’t want to move to such a divided city.

Servatius manages 23 short-term rental units in South Haven, where he lives. Servais said short-term rentals allow tourism and its related industries, such as cleaning services, to thrive. According to rental platform Airbnb, Michigan property owners have collectively earned more than $660 million in rental income. State governments as well as business interests regularly promote Michigan as a place to welcome tourists.

During the Great Recession, Servatius saw people using short-term rentals as a way to stay afloat. They would use the rent to pay off mortgages and keep their homes.

“Short-term rentals don’t harm the neighborhood. In fact, they make it better,” Servatius said. “Otherwise these houses would remain empty for eleven months of the year, which leads to crime. But whether it’s a family or a couple staying there, these homes get used to being rented out.

The city mishandled the issue by allowing members of the group known as Neighborhoods Need Neighbors to hijack city council meetings, Servatius said. The group is vocal and has publicly insulted owners of short-term rentals.

“They say they’re not anti-rental, but want balance,” Servatius said. “The problem is that their balance is what they think is right, and we already have a cap on short-term rentals in the city of South Haven based on around 583, which we’ve never reached. We have less short-term rentals now than in 2018 when we launched the rental ordinance The idea of ​​limiting property rights even further means placing a deed restriction on each owner’s property within the limits of the city, which hurts values ​​and takes away the constitutional rights that owners have worked hard for in this country.

Neighborhoods Need Neighbors posted over 300 signs around South Haven, each bearing their name.

Todd Heinrich, a member of the group, said it was an activist organization whose aim was to limit the negative economic and social impacts of short-term rentals. The group hired an attorney to ask the city for an ordinance limiting short-term rentals. Heinrich says people have had trouble with parties at nearby rental units. Clubs and churches, he told CapCon, are experiencing a major loss of members, and short-term rentals have driven up house prices, which has kept new residents from moving to South Haven.

“My wife is a doctor and she can’t find a new doctor willing to move here for her practice, which has never been a problem before,” Heinrich said. “A house that used to cost $250,000 now costs $600,000. Even a family doctor cannot afford it.

David Veenstra, another member of Neighborhoods Need Neighbours, said he was not against short-term rentals but was concerned about their growing number.

“I am not opposed to short-term rentals, far from it. I think they can be positive by fixing the houses,” Veenstra said. “But they are competing with other buyers to raise house prices. When we have absentee owners who are unavailable or unresponsive to concerns, sometimes there are properties that turn into party houses.

The Michigan Legislature is considering bills that would prevent local governments from banning short-term rentals. This would still allow cities to enforce ordinances that serve to protect public health and safety and prevent nuisance.

Gary Walker was marketing and taking bookings for his short-term rental property. The city informed him in April that the housing inspection process had changed, which could jeopardize the renewal of his tenant certificate. He had already booked tenants for the summer.

“There is a housing shortage in South Haven. Small towns in Michigan lack the hotel infrastructure of other large coastal towns, and tourism is South Haven’s primary industry,” Walker said.

The city is enforcing new regulations on window sizes, Walker said, even though Michigan residential codes have many exceptions for older homes. Typically, people are only required to bring their home up to standard when renovating.

“They make their own rules which are not industry standards, which are not industry codes, and we are being fined for renting, even though we are already booked for the summer, until the window is fixed,” Walker said. Owning the property is part of his long-term retirement strategy, and he said changing city expectations are putting financial stress on his family. .

“The board doesn’t understand all of the long-term consequences of (restrictions) on short-term rentals,” Walker said.

The council commissioned a study on the effects of short-term rentals on the South Haven community. It is led by the Kercher Center for Social Research at Western Michigan University and the WE Upjohn Economic Institute.

Short-term rentals have existed in the city for more than 100 years, said South Haven City Manager Kate Hosier. At city council meetings, opponents of the lease claimed that the community would lose its character and that there would not be enough volunteers for the city government or enough children in the school system.

“Both sides are very passionate about their views, and some are very committed to making sure the regulations are followed to the letter,” Hosier said. “It can be a polarizing conversation.”

June 16 – Getting from point A to point B in Cherokee County without using their own vehicles becomes easier for tourists, with more local rental companies and shuttle services, and the KI transit system WOOD, expanding their services.

Tahlequah is booming with herds of foreigners as the days get warmer and the water levels in the rivers and lakes stabilize. Larger crowds also gather in downtown Tahlequah during the summer months, and even more so during the July 4 holiday. Some prefer to leave their car at their hotel and rely on other modes of transportation to get around the county.

Tahlequah Main Street Association director Jamie Hale said she saw people camping, stopping for lunch or dinner and shopping.

Tour Tahlequah encourages people to shop, eat and sightsee in the area. Gena McPhail, director of tourism for the Tahlequah Area Chamber of Commerce, said there are new shuttle services in the area, such as Tahlequah Transit.

“I took the bus in May and the first ride was Memorial Day weekend,” said owner Rene Milbauer.

She said her sister worked for a hotel in Tahlequah and had received several calls from people asking about shuttle services.

“It’s a short bus I have, and she bought it but never started the business, and this summer I thought I’d try it,” Milbauer said.

She said she was getting more and more calls for shuttle services as the weeks went by. Surprisingly, Milbauer said, more and more people are looking for transportation to Tulsa International Airport, and she’s willing to get a separate vehicle for that purpose.

It’s $20 per person for a round trip, and Milbauer takes cash or a card. For more information, call Tahlequah Transit at 918-822-8704.

Those interested in renting a vehicle can do so at Economy Auto Rental, 324 S. Muskogee Ave. Mitch Meredith is one of the owners, and he said they see an increase in rental customers during the summer.

“Summer is a busy time for people traveling on vacation or just traveling in general,” he said.

Meredith said renters must have liability insurance and if they don’t, they can buy it at the Ron Meredith agency, where Economy Auto Rental is based.

“They either have to carry the offset and collision, or we can buy the offset and collision, but they have to have their own liability policy,” he said.

Renters must also have a valid driver’s license and be at least 21 years old. They can call 918-456-2013 for more information.

KI BOIS Area Transit System partnered with PICK Transportation last year to create a regional public transportation system that uses Uber technology. KATS received an Innovative Mobility Initiative grant through the U.S. Department of Transportation.

In 2021, KATS director Charla Sloan said it was a pilot project and they had a year to get it started. Services began June 3, 2021 and were available from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Monday through Friday; and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Rides cost $3.

“We’ve extended it to September 30, but I think we’ll keep going. We can change the hours and probably not stay that late,” Sloan said.

PICK Transportation appears as a service or vehicle option with the Uber app. Passengers will be able to rate drivers and vice versa. Passengers equipped with a smartphone will receive text messages containing key information on upcoming journeys. There will be options for passengers with visual, hearing and developmental disabilities, and drivers will receive visual and audible turn-by-turn instructions.

For more information, call KATS at 918-453-1155.

Understanding your coverage could be key to maximizing your benefits.

Content of the article

Many credit cards come with travel and purchase insurance. Generally, higher-tier credit cards come with better insurance, but even no-fee cards can come with purchase protection and an extended warranty. Since one claim could save you thousands of dollars, you’ll want to know how your credit card insurance works.

Out-of-province/country emergency medical insurance

If your credit card includes travel medical insurance, you are covered simply by being the cardholder. You do not need to charge your airfare or accommodation to your card for your policy to apply.

Be sure to check how many days you are covered for. Many travel credit cards offer 15 consecutive days if you are under 65. People aged 65 and over are only covered for three days. That said, if you have a no-fee card, you can expect fewer days.

More from MoneyWise

Pre-existing conditions may affect your policy. For example, if you had a heart condition before you left and then had heart-related medical treatment abroad, your insurance may not cover you.

Content of the article

Keep in mind that the claims process requires you to notify your insurance provider before receiving treatment. If this is not possible, you are expected to contact them as soon as medically possible. If you don’t call before seeking treatment or choose an unlicensed medical service provider, you may have to pay for some of your expenses out of pocket.

Most policies have a limit on which medical expenses are covered. This is usually a minimum of $1,000,000, so you’re unlikely to go over your limit when seeking treatment.

Extended travel insurance

When it comes to extended travel insurance, this can vary greatly from card to card. Using the RBC Avion Visa Infinite card as an example, you will get the following:

Content of the article

  • Trip cancellation – up to $1,500 per person/$5,000 total
  • Trip Interruption – up to $5,000 per person/$25,000 total
  • Flight/travel delay – up to $250 after a four-hour delay
  • Delayed and lost baggage – up to $500 after a four-hour delay
  • Rental Vehicle Collision/Damage – 48 consecutive days/MSRP up to $65,000
  • Hotel/Motel Burglary – $2,500

The most important thing to note in your policy manual is the requirements of your purchase. With the RBC Avion Visa Infinite card, you must charge the full cost of your airfare, accommodation and car rental to your card for the applicable insurance to apply. Some cards may require you to only charge a percentage.

You should also check what is considered a covered reason for making a claim. For example, an emergency medical condition or a formal travel advisory would trigger your trip cancellation policy. But wanting to change your dates wouldn’t be.

Content of the article

Another thing to consider is the terms on which you can make a claim. Some cards allow you to make a flight/trip delay and lost/delayed baggage claim after four hours. Others may have a six hour or longer policy.

Finally, each credit card’s Collision/Loss Damage Waiver will require you to decline the rental agency’s insurance for your insurance to apply. That said, liability coverage — which covers you if you’re sued for physical injury or property damage — is never included in credit card insurance policies, so you can buy it.

Mobile device insurance

Mobile Device Insurance – which covers phones and tablets – is a benefit included with some credit cards such as the Tangerine World Mastercard. To benefit from your insurance, you must charge the full purchase price to your card. If you are on a subsidized plan, where the device is offset against your monthly plan, your monthly bill payments must be charged to your card.

Content of the article

With the Tangerine World Mastercard, your mobile device insurance will cover up to $1,000 in the event of loss, theft, damage or mechanical breakdown. That’s generous for a no-fee card, but some cards with annual fees cover up to $1,500.

Your policy usually begins 30 days from the time the device is charged to your card or your first monthly bill is charged. The insurance policy will generally last up to two years. Each policy will charge you a deductible of $25 to $100. The amount you will pay depends on the purchase price of your device. Additionally, there is usually a 2% depreciation cost for each full month from the date of purchase. This means that you will never recover the full cost of your device.

Purchase guarantee

Advertising 7

Content of the article

Purchase Assurance is sometimes referred to as Buyer’s Assurance. With this insurance, purchases charged to your card will be protected against loss, theft or damage for 90 days from the date of purchase. Certain exclusions apply, such as concert tickets, live plants, or food and alcoholic beverages.

Extended warranty

The extended warranty typically doubles your manufacturer’s warranty for up to an additional year. But that only covers the cost of the repair or the original purchase price (whichever was cheaper). You will need to charge the full amount of the purchase to your card to qualify.

Generally, it is not necessary to register your items for the extended warranty, unless the manufacturer’s warranty is five years or more. There is also a lifetime maximum of $40,000 to $60,000 in Purchase Assurance and Extended Warranty that you can claim.

Advertising 8

Content of the article

When making a claim for Purchase Assurance and Extended Warranty, you must provide the original receipt and statement in which the charge was made. The insurer may also require proof of the damage or theft, such as photos or a police report.

Complaints are worth it

Although there are other insurance policies you can purchase, it may be more cost effective to use the options offered by your card. A similar comprehensive travel insurance policy would cost you around $300 per year. This is usually more expensive than the annual fee you pay for your card. With the various forms of purchase insurance, you can protect yourself against costly repairs or replacements as long as you keep your receipts.
