Used Car Buyers Guide

Do’s

Always do the research into the type of vehicle you require, make sure that it suits the needs that you require, and also suitable for any other driver having its use (spouse etc.)

 

Always check the insurance group and get a quote, before you agree to purchase a vehicle, there are many comparison websites you can check

 

Always get or ask the seller to provide an HPI report on the vehicle, it will show if the vehicle is subject to a finance agreement, stolen or even an insurance write off.

 

If you are not buying from a dealer, always make sure that the person selling the vehicle is the person registered on the V5 (registration document) or has title to sell.

 

Always have the perspective vehicle proficiently checked, buying a new car is a big event, and important things can be missed during the excitement of getting your new car.  

 

You are strongly advised to insist on the vehicle having a full service history, without this you will find it hard to sell on when you want to sell it.

Don’ts

Never buy a used vehicle on the spur of the moment, 36% of people regret impulse purchases within one or two months.

 

Never buy a used vehicle by meeting the seller any ware but their home that will ensure you are buying from the right person and also gives you a point of contact.  If you are asked to meet at a service station or motorway services Don’t GO.

 

Never buy a used vehicle that doesn’t have a V5 (registration document).

 

Never buy a used vehicle or view a perspective purchase at night or in wet weather, you will never see the full picture unless the vehicle is viewed dry and in daylight.

 

Never buy a used vehicle on a whim or because you really like it even though it’s not really suitable for your needs, trying to move your mistake on quickly can be a costly exersize.  

 

Never buy a used vehicle without having it proficiently checked, buying a new car is a big event, and important things can be missed during the excitement of getting your new car.

Scuffs, dinks and dents we all hate, yet we just don’t seem to be able to escape them,  car parks are full of shoppers and they have all brought the kids for good measure opening all doors and leaving you with one more battle scar.

 

These battle scars can escalate over a period and without you realising, your vehicle has drastically devalued.

 

Whilst it’s ok to let a few drinks and dents mount up before getting them sorted, if you have any exposed metal it should be protected as soon as possible to prevent metal fatigue.  

 

Don’t worry all is not lost, Metal Cross offer the most cost effective dent and scuff solution and will be able to bring your car back to its former glory to keep its value on track.
