We all love to drive a new vehicle, and who wouldn’t, as a new car has yet to be driven on the road, and we can be 100% sure that is it is in perfect condition. While it is nice to own a brand new car, you are actually paying a lot of money for this privilege, and with that in mind, here are a few good reasons to buy second hand when looking to change your car.
- Minimal Depreciation – When you drive a new car off the forecourt, you can expect to lose 15-20% of the value in an instant! That is no small amount, and when you buy a car that is between 1-2 years old, you are getting a perfectly good car for much less. Indeed, many astute UK motorists do exactly that, and with some careful purchasing and regular change, you can enjoy very cheap motoring.
- Enjoy a Variety of Driving Experiences – If you buy a new car and plan to drive it until it is no longer usable, then you will be driving the same car for at least 10-15 years, whereas buying a used car and changing it every year or two allows you to enjoy a wide range of cars. If, for example, you bought a 12-month old prestige car from a reputable used car company in Hull and looked after it well, you might not lose any money at all when you sell it after one year, indeed, if you buy wisely, you can sometimes make a profit.
The smart motorist is interested in cars that are between 1-2 years old, as this type of vehicle is still in A1 condition, yet prices are reasonable.
