4. COMPLETE THOROUGH CHECKS
Next, make sure you complete all the necessary checks to guarantee the quality of the car you are about to buy. The service history booklet will help you to identify any recurring issues that may not have been corrected. It also shows if the vehicle was serviced at a manufacturer-approved dealers or not. No service history or gaps in it are bad signs. It is also wise to look at the MOT history. Picking a car that was recently tested means that you will avoid the cost of an MOT so soon after you bought the vehicle. If you want total peace of mind, you can request a HPI check which highlights any irregularities in the car’s background.
5. THINK ABOUT FINANCE
Consider financing your purchase as a way to help you own it sooner and afford a higher-priced model. The dealer will most likely arrange most of the paperwork for simplicity and offer a number of options suited to different circumstances. Remember to set a budget for how much you are willing to spend monthly and stick to it.
