As many of you may have seen, there has been a sudden influx of companies in the car-buying market that are now trying to get you to buy a second-hand car from the comfort of your own home. While this may sound incredibly convenient, we are here to tell you to think before you buy.

In this post, we are going to be looking at why you should really think before using these companies and stick to the good old fashioned way of car buying.

Why Is This A Thing?

While it may sound like a ludicrous notion, buying a car online started as a thing that most people did. In the beginning, it was a great idea; you could take a look at the car, research all of the details of it and then head out for a test drive before you decided whether you would financially commit to it.

While this was great, the new method isn’t quite as brilliant. The new boys on the market want you to see a few pictures and maybe a video, then buy a car that’s delivered to your house. No test drive, no tyre kicking, nothing. Sound good to you? No, we didn’t think so. Now, let’s take a look at why you should never trust these companies.

There Is No Digital Replacement For Your Instinct

The first thing that you always rely on when it comes to buying a car is your instinct. When you head out to view a car, you take everything in; you feel the bonnet to see if the cheeky car dealer had warmed up the car before you got there.

You look under the bonnet, and you examine every little detail. Most importantly, nothing on earth can replace how the car feels when you take it out on a test drive. While you may have driven cars like the one you want to buy, every car drives and handles differently.

Buying a car is one of those things that requires your presence, so buying one online and just hoping it’s going to be the best car for you is crazy.

You Have No Haggle Room

It seems that these sites are set up to stop you from attempting to reduce the price on any of the cars you look at. If there is one thing that everybody knows about second-hand cars; it’s that you should never ever pay the screen price of the car.If you are buying online, you’re stuck. The price you see is the price you pay, and more often than not, you will be paying well above value.

It also seems that if you are looking to buy an expensive car, you will have limited access to Prestige Car Finance. Obviously, when it comes to the money you can use for your car, you really do not want to be limited as to which companies you can use.
