Question: Why are you selling the car? The answer to this question might not impact your decision, but it is a good idea to have the answer. Lets look at it this way, would you rather buy a car from someone who decided to upgrade to get more room for their kids or someone who says they wanted something better? Many sellers tend to answer this question quickly and on impulse so you should get an honest answer. Question: Can I come look at the car and take it for a test drive? If you are asking all of these questions over the phone or via email, you will want to ask this important question. It is always recommended that you take a vehicle for a test drive before deciding to buy. Just because a car looks good, it doesn’t necessarily mean it runs good or will be comfortable for you to drive. Run in the other direction if a seller keeps making excuses. The car might not run or they might not even have a car to sell (common with online scammers).
2). What is the maintenance history of your car? Ask the current vehicle owner to show you records of oil changes, routine maintenance as well as the mechanical work that might reveal a whiff of a problem. 3). Why are you selling this motor vehicle? Do not rely on the seller’s honesty but on your own instincts with this one. If the existing owner cannot give you a plausible explanation, that can be a indication that he may be trying to pass off a lemon. If you odor a rat, move on. 4). Is this car is still under warranty? Just as when you are shopping for a fresh jug of milk, you’ll want to pick the car that has the most time left previous to the expiration date – on the warranty that is. If the warranty won’t transfer, or if it is previously expired, consider asking the seller to cut the price by what it would price to buy an extended warranty. After that you can decide whether to purchase the extended warranty or else bank the money for possible repairs.
No matter whether you have purchased a used car or are bringing home a brand new car. These tips on buying a car will safeguard you from all the fallacies and fraud. * Start with checking the exteriors of the car. It should have a constant paint finish. There should be no scratches or abrupt paint. * Check whether the gaps between the panels are of the same breadth or not. If it is not, then it indicates that the car has met with an accident lately. * Open and close all the doors of the car and press the car down from all the four corners. If the car is in sound condition, it should return to its normal height smoothly. * Dont forget to check cars VIN or Vehicle Identification Number. * Check the engine and oil used. Color of the oil should be golden and it should be free from dirt and debris. * Also check engine coolant’s fluid levels. * Cross check the mileage and car’s odometer. You can make use of the car’s document for accuracy. * Check AC, dashboard, wipers, Head lights, indicators. Electric windows, seat adjuster, gears, breaks and every other thing present inside the car must be checked properly. * Checking car’s logbook, driving history, MOT certificate, servicing stamps for assurance.
Accidents – Has the car been involved in any accidents? You can check this by contacting the DVLA as they have records of every car in their database. Reason for Sale – Are you buying from a private seller or a used car dealer? If it is a private sale, why is the owner selling? Ask them to be honest and admit any problems the car may have (e.g. oil leaks). Ask the seller if they have been happy with the car. Extras – What extras does the car have? (Air conditioning, electric windows, CD player etc) Check that they all work. Fuel Efficiency – Ask how many Miles per Gallon the car does. If you plan to drive the car over long distances you will want a car that is fuel efficient. Test Drive – Always take the car out for a test run to see how it handles. A test drive is a good way to see if the car has any problems.
Beside are the 10 tips to buying a car: 1) There is a ”right time” to buy a car whether you know it or not. This is generally when the new models come in. New model cars usually come in between August and November, so by shopping for a car during these months you will be able to have access to the newest model cars available. 2) Do not feel pressured to buy a car. Salesmen always try to make you make a decision to buy now, and will try to persuade you to make an instant decision. 3) Ask salesmen about unadvertised sales that may be going on. 4) The internet is a great place to look for cars! You can sometimes find good deals without wasting your gas or having to deal with any pushy salesmen. 5) Be ready to negotiate the right price for you. Almost everywhere you go a car price is negotiable, so be your own agent and negotiate a price you can afford. 6) Don’t go to car dealerships on the weekend. This is when most people go to the dealership to buy a car, so you won’t get as good of a deal if you do this. Instead go during the middle of the week when salesmen are more eager to make a deal. 7) Go to car dealers toward the end of the month when dealers are trying to meet sales goals. 8) Bring someone with you that is knowledgeable about cars if you are inexperienced. 9) Take your time when making your purchase. Remember this is a major purchase, and you should not be talked into buying something that you do not want. 10) Have Fun! I hope these 10 tips to buying a car will help you to make a better informed purchase.
Nevertheless, even if one of these methods does secure a fast sale, there are the preliminary preparations, which take up time. You will need to ensure the car is thoroughly clean, both inside and out, and this can take hours; you may need to apply a t-cut solution to any scratches or simply to bring out the cars original colour, if it is a little faded. This all takes time, time, which in the modern world, very few people have. However, and fortunately for any person who is thinking ’I want to sell my car now!’, quick sales are possible – you just need to know where to get the best deals within the shortest space of time. Companies that offer cash for cars are normally very good. They have several reasons for buying your car and this means that your car is an attractive buy for them, and so they will offer a decent sum of money. The reasons that such a business will be able to offer good money in a short space of time are various. However, in short, if the car is old, and is not resalable they can remove serviceable and salvageable parts, which they will then be able to sell on at a profit. Private buyers and car dealerships do not offer such services because it is not their line of business and they do not have the appropriate contacts. Alternatively, if the car is resalable they often export the cars to countries where they can demand a higher price than they could if selling in the UK. For these reasons, they offer very competitive prices for used cars of all types and conditions.
If you are buying a car with cash then this is a really easy step to follow, just only spend what you can afford. So now you have decided on the car you are after and the budget you have to spend now you just need to locate that car in that budget, it sounds simple but this is by far one of the hardest bits. I personally look for low mileage cars as they still will have a lot of life in them, I rather have an older lower mileage car than a newer higher mileage car as I just feel that the older car would have had an easier life. Where do you look when you are after a used car? Well I would first cruel through your local news papers and see whether any of you local car dealers have the car you are after then if they do go round and organise a test drive. When you are sure that the car is the car for you then walk away and try and find that car on the internet at the lowest price you can.
