Car Buying Tips
- Don't be afraid or embarrassed asking the seller any questions, it's better to ask a stupid question than end up with a bad purchase.
- If you are buying from an auction (both online and offline), do you research, set your budget and stick to it
- Find out the reason for the sale
- Get insurance quotes from multiple organisations before even looking at or bidding on a Car, if you can't afford the insurance you can't afford the Car.
- Check the wheel arches and the bottom of doors for signs of rust (bubbles under the paintwork) especially on older cars
- Check that the car will not need any immediate work, an easy check that any non mechanically minded buyer can do is that of of the checking the depth of the tread on all tyres (inluding the spare), replacing 5 tyres can be very expensive
