Unfortunately, the car market is a kind of lottery, buying a used car in good condition, and even for a normal price is not an easy task. In the market, it is often under the guise of a normal car, to the buyer, what is called a “beaten up” car, either a broken or dead car (in terms of wear), or some kind of “drowned man”, that is, a car that has been in the water for a long time.
In order not to become one of those unlucky, and not fall for the scammers, when trying to buy a car, you should know some secrets and subtleties of the selection procedure.
First of all, determine the budget, that is, the amount you are willing to spend on a used car. It is necessary to take into account the fact that expenses usually exceed the established milestone by 15-20%; this is because after purchase additional expenses will arise in the form of registering a vehicle, costs of re-registration, insurance, passing a vehicle inspection and much more. In addition, before you buy a car, you need to understand that after the acquisition may need minor repairs, which one way or another will require cash infusions from you.
As a rule, the most common places where you can buy used cars for sale in Kent are print publications, Internet sites, and car markets. The most important thing is not to rush to the first one that suits you at the price and condition of the car, write down several options and point out the pros and cons next to each one, as well as its cost, later it will be easier for you to decide, looking at real applicants.
The Proper Checking
Before you go to inspect a potential car, by phone, check all the most important points, for example, you can clarify the condition of the car, the chassis, whether it was in the accident, as well as about the technical passport of the car and the presence of any stickers. If there were places to be pasted into the technical passport – this is a clear sign that the owner had problems with the VIN number, therefore, they may arise in your case if you register and register the car.
Specify how the car will be re-registered. A rather popular way to buy a used car is to buy it by proxy. When making such a transaction, it is necessary to understand that the purchase will take place as such, but the legal owner will remain the one from whom you purchased the car, that is, the seller. In the case when you already want to sell this car, you will have to go to the owner and ask him to draw up the necessary documents.
