Well, buying a new car, no matter if right from the showroom, or a second-hand car purchase, it is never something impulsive and not considered and planned beforehand, unless you are not a billionaire and buying a new car every Sunday is not a routine for you, right? For us, normal people, having a car parked in the front alley of the house is something we have to go to work for a longer time, so the purchase of a new car, from the genuine idea, through the planning and market research, finally to the final agreement, now this is a long process, also, and managing a few tips and tricks won’t hurt anyone, right? As much as we would like to explain to you how to unlock a car with a kirby grip in the darkest of the night, well this is not legal and legit, so we will settle on the five golden rules for how to make difference between what car you want and what car you need. How to stay motivated. How to do good research for deals. How to stay organised and what to look for in a used vehicle deal and more.
Do not sign papers and documents, unless you are not sure that you really want this car! When it comes to buying a car even the most intelligent people may do stupid things because of panic, rush, excitement and the uncomfortable situations car dealers may put us into! Don’t get involved in this, stay true to your genuine idea of what you are looking for in a car and don’t get tempted by unrealistic offers. This great sporty roofless monster may look amazing on the road, however, this won’t make a good and reliable family car! Signing a document indicates that you are legally committing to what this form says, in this case, to buy a car and you have to be sure that this is the right car for you! However, the car driver may want you to sign a test drive form to make sure you are covered for insurance purposes.
Never give your money to the car dealer, unless you are completely ready to buy the car! Giving the car dealer a deposit is almost the same thing as signing an order form and you are agreeing to buy this particular car. But are you sure you really want it? You should only pay a deposit on a car once you have signed an order for it and not for a test drive, quote, or anything else the car driver may try and trick you with. When you give the dealer money, always be sure to have the proper receipt. Read every form before signing it! You are legally committed to everything the form states, so be sure you are ok with that. If you don’t understand some part of the paper, don’t be afraid to ask. All contracts have terms and conditions that you are legally bound to once to put your signing on, so if you are not sure, don’t sign and take your time to think on it.
Don’t let dealers take advantage of you! As we love to say, customers are like royalties and they decide on the rules. As you can expect, the main job of the dealer is to get as much money from you as possible, which means that your main job is to keep your eyes peeled for tricky situations and when someone tries to take advantage of you. Be polite, but don’t be afraid to tell to the car dealer that you are not satisfied with their job. Find the dealer that will treat you with respect! Be prepared, because the car dealer would try to sell you the car he wants you to buy and not the car you want to buy! Be strong and stay with your decision. Having an expert advice and be open for another option is always a good idea, but if you are pretty sure with your goal and the car you want to buy, then don’t let anyone impact your decision.
