Be Aware When Buying A Used Car
Total Articles: 2
It can make real financial sense to buy a second hand car. Depreciation of new cars can be so extreme that some makes will lose up to 58% of their value in just three years. So buying nearly new or second hand can save thousands in real terms with little or no loss of performance or appearance. A well looked after used car really will be ‘as new’. But there are some things to look out for when buying used.
The most important thing to remember when looking for used cars in Uxbridge and the South East is that there are some pretty unscrupulous people out there who will happily sell a cloned, previously written off or stolen car to anyone who is willing to buy it. And with cars, it is very difficult to ascertain a genuine history from a fairy tale made up by a dishonest vendor. This is where getting a full vehicle history check is vital in avoiding a car with an unsavoury history.
It is sadly all too easy for a thief to steal a car, find a similar and genuine one for sale, clone the details and sell the stolen car as genuine. The first that the unwary buyer will know about it is when the police knock on the door and the possibly several thousands of pounds spent on the car is lost forever. Likewise, a car can be ‘clocked’, that is the mileage can be turned back making the car appear to have a very low mileage and therefore less wear and tear. Previously written off cars can genuinely be repaired to as good as new, but they can also be bought by the unscrupulous, cosmetically repaired and sold to the unwary. Even experienced mechanics can be fooled by a cosmetic repair job and miss structural damage that may cause a serious accident.
So how can these potentially very serious and even life-threatening pitfalls be avoided? Employing the services of a car sourcing individual or company is one way to take the risk out of buying second hand. Car sourcing in Eton and the South East can be used to find the perfect car as well as make sure that the car is genuine and not stolen or subject to a finance agreement. Getting the history of the Used Cars in question in Uxbridge and the South East can be carried out by the individual by getting an HPI check. A full HPI check will ascertain whether or not there is an outstanding financial agreement linked to the car, whether there are mileage discrepancies, if the car has been previously written off and if it has been recorded as stolen. HPI checks delve deep into the history of that car, matching up log book and mot mileage records, cross referencing the number plate with police and insurance records and checking with finance companies whether the car has an outstanding hire purchase agreement attached to it.
Car Sourcing services will also take the worry about buying second hand. Reputable companies and individuals offering car sourcing services in Eton and the South will find the perfect car for their client with distance being no object. They will also ensure that the car has no hidden history and their clients don’t have to deal with sales reps or private individuals.
