Buying a used car online

Buying a used car online can be a tricky business, so we suggest always doing your research and maybe going to an online car company that has been recommended by a friend or family.

When buying a used car online begin searching for the type of used car you would like to buy and can afford. For instance, there is no point in buying a 2-seater sports car if you have 2.4 children and a dog!

When buying a used car online, find out what sort of price you should be looking at for that make and model, this will give you a rough guide so you will not be at risk of being ripped off. The price will be dependant on the condition of the car, if its low mileage and in good condition with full-service history and a 12 month MOT you will probably pay slightly more than if the car has high mileage, is in bad condition and has generally not been looked after by its previous owners.

When buying a used car online you can check various used car sites to give you an idea of what you should be paying, sites such as Autotrader and other reputable used car sites can help give you an idea of the value of the car you are looking at.

When buying a used car online negotiate and even pit dealerships against each other to grab your self a better deal, cheeky but it is a good way of getting a good deal!
