Get a used car without regretting it later

Get a used car without regretting it later

Some of the best used cars Nottinghamshire can be found at Dosh Saver. There are many great reasons for purchasing a second-hand car rather than a brand new vehicle. One of the most commonly-cited reasons for doing so is that buying used means missing out on the 40% deprecation drop most cars see after just a year on the road. A nearly-new car can give you access to an array of contemporary features for a fraction of the price that you would have paid when it first hit the forecourt. To avoid making mistakes when buying a used car for the first time, you may wish to enlist the guidance and support of someone more experienced.

Find the best deals

Many people have run into problems after buying second-hand cars from private sellers only to learn they’re not protected by the Sale of Goods Act. The Act can help you if you’ve bought your car from a dealer, and you shouldn’t face any problems with returning it if you later discover a fault you were not told about before. When you do go out to look at a used car, make sure you get to see it in dry and light conditions so faults can’t be hidden by water or darkness. Ask as many relevant questions as you feel you need to and look for evidence of a full service history.

Look at the documents

Always check the paperwork thoroughly before you hand over your cash. You’ll need to ensure the documents back up everything you have been told about the car and you’ll need to check the person or dealer selling you it is actually named on the documents. Finally, make sure you’ll be able to cover tax, fuel and insurance.
