As one of the leading used cars and used vans dealerships in the UK, Southampton based Best Price Car Sales has a highly regarded industry reputation for being one of the best one-stop shops for all of our customers, from the time of your first enquiry, right up to taking ownership of your newly purchased used vehicle.

Sometimes it can be very daunting when deciding what used car or used van is right for you, so we have put together a simple guide to help you, and by following these steps, we are confident that your life will be so much easier in you making the right choice.

First Things First
Make sure you are able to afford the used car you are purchasing. This could be the monthly installments, and also the running costs, like fuel, wear and tear, road tax, and MOT. It’s important if you are committing to car finance that you have that extra budget put aside for all eventualities that may occur. The last thing you ever want is to lose the car of your dreams due to bad budgeting.

Make a List of Used Cars
The most common thing our advisors have given us their feedback on what used cars customers want is the well known brands and often will only consider sticking with one make. These are often the most expensive brands which can sometimes either overstretch your budget or limit your options in choosing the right car for you. The best advice, in this case, is to consider and be open minded to other and sometimes cheaper options and build up to having the ultimate used car of your dreams when you are in a much better position, financially or your circumstances have changed for the better.

Location, Location, Location
Obviously, it’s a lot more convenient to shop for your used car or used van as close as possible, just in case you need to go back and forth for whatever reason. Also gives you more peace of mind that you know who you’re dealing with and easier to arrange for car inspection and test drive. It’s good to point out that at Best Price Car Sales, we actually deliver all of our stock, free of charge anywhere in the country to either your home or place of business. You are then able to fully inspect your chosen vehicle, and take it for a test drive.

Peace Of Mind on a Used Car History
It’s important to make sure that you know your used car or used van’s history. It’s advisable to never buy any used vehicle without fully knowing the history of the used car or used van. At Best Price Cars, we make it routine and standard practice that all of the cars we sell have been HPI checked, which will identify insurance write offs and any outstanding car finance on your chosen used vehicle.

The end result should be that you have the used car of your dreams, it’s affordable and will give you the confidence of driving it for many years to come. To make sure you have a greater chance of achieving this, it’s important to consider a used car dealer that provides a nationwide, free delivery service, a warranty that allows you to visit any VAT registered garage, and the option to upgrade your car every two years, even if you have finance still outstanding on your car.
