We hope that you will allow us to help you pick the right car, as we know that choosing the right car, means our customers are happy! Our sales team will be more than happy to help you in finding the right car for you, but in the mean time, we have put together some top tips to help you start the buying process in the right way and make it a much smoother experience.
- Consider The Type Of Car You Need
While this may seem fairly obvious, you need to make sure that you are looking at the right type of car for what you need. There are a lot of things to consider when buying a car such as boot space, number of seats, economy, etc. Make sure you know which aspects are most important to you as you may find a car that ticks a lot, but not all of these boxes. Once you have decided on these factors, you can find a car that is right for you.
- Know What You’re Willing To Spend
When buying a car, what you can afford and what you’re willing to spend isn’t always the same thing. Make sure you have a very good idea of how much you want to spend before you start looking. The factors that we mentioned above are very important, but if the car is more than you want to spend, then it’s still the wrong car. If you’re looking for a monthly payment and you know the type of car you want, our sales team can help you narrow down your options to a few cars or maybe just the one.
- Know The Car
By this point you should have a good idea of what car you’re looking to purchase. When you get to the stage of choosing a specific vehicle, make sure you know the car and that it is what you’re expecting. Ask as many questions as you need, two cars are rarely the same and you don’t want to assume that a car has a feature you want, only to find that it’s missing after you’ve made your purchase. Our sales staff will be able to answer any questions you may have about the specification or the history of the car.
- Test Drive
Once you have identified the car you are interested in and have made sure it fits your needs and budget, it’s time to take it for a drive. If you’ve followed our advise up to this point, you should only need to test drive 1 car. Take the car for a decent test drive and make sure you drive it in the way you would normally to make sure it performs as you expect.
- The Fun Bit!
If you enjoyed the drive of the car, you’re ready to make the final step and purchase your new car. This can often be nerve racking but if you’ve followed our advise, you should be very confident that you’re buying the right car. Let our sales team know that you’d like to buy the car, and we’ll take it from there!
We hope this guide will help you in finding your next car, and remember, we’re always happy to help, so feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
