The UK car market is quite literally flooded with used vehicles. The used car business itself has made large movements forward of late. With so much evolution and advances being made, it can be difficult to find one used car dealer to stick out. Thats why more and more companies are offering customers incredible offers to sweeten the deal.
As a customer it can be confusing to receive so many offers, each of which seem better than the last. Lucky that I am here, then, to talk you through the different deals available and what they all mean. So, let’s begin. The most basic deal is simply money for original buying price. Most used dealers will offer these on a specific vehicle. Quite often you will also find that the price is offered for a limited period, such as on a monthly basis. These deals are very easy to explain, essentially the dealer is trying to promote a vehicle, and should you want to purchase one, this is an excellent time to buy and get money off. Do be careful if a lot of money is offered off the original price. Do some research and make sure that the car hasn’t suddenly dropped in value, or that there is no other reason for the price slash.
Sometimes, price cutting is offered on an entire database of used vehicles, and this usually works on a percentage basis. For instance, you might find that all vehicles have thirty percent off during a month. Obviously, at times like this, it is an excellent idea to purchase your used vehicle. However, it can be difficult to predict when this might happen on a yearly basis. Some dealers partner with supermarkets or other businesses, to make sure that you are rewarded for shopping with both. For instance, you might rent a vehicle and then receive triple Nectar points at Sainsbury’s. This isn’t always useful to a customer, but can work out really nicely, if used properly. If you are reliant upon supermarket schemes, such as this one, just ensure that you purchase from a dealer that uses the right kind of point to fit in with you.
One final offer explanation, before I leave you. No matter how wonderful a deal may sound on paper, make sure that you check things thoroughly. And please, do not buy a used car, purely because there is money off it at the moment. You may be really disappointed and disillusioned, once you get it home. Good luck!
