Britain is now in an age whereby searching for a second-hand car on the Internet or in magazines has become something of a hobby, people enjoy it, they find it relaxing, but it can also be hugely rewarding if they find their dream car, for a snip of the price. So, what are the advantages of buying a second-hand motor as opposed to a brand-new vehicle? Well, for financial reasons, obviously. Second-hand cars are much cheaper than ‘out of the factory’ ones. Ok, so you have to drive something that already has miles on it, but that shouldn’t matter too much if you find the right motor, at the right price. If you’re saving up for new car, and a car is a personal necessity (to get to a job for example) than why not look into purchasing from the second hand cars market?
That way you’ll have the mobility, and you’ll also have money left in your pocket. It’s a cheaper alternative. ‘But in the showroom I can choose the colour and model I want’, you may say, well, there’s actually more variety when buying second hand. Most national car magazines now have around 500 pages of used vehicles, so there’s so much on offer. Buyers can choose from a range of models, colors and specifications. It’s simply a more practical choice. But, nevertheless, the main reason people buy used is, as mentioned, money. It’s a well known fact that the most depreciation of a vehicle occurs in the first three years – so why not look to buy a motor around 3 or 4 years old? You’ll get it probably less than half its original price, and it’ll still have plenty of years ahead of it!
