Where to Shop for Used Cars Cornwall Loves – great tips for before you buy

So you’re looking to buy a used car in Cornwall and want some tips from an expert? Great! You’ve come to just the right place.

We know it can be daunting when searching for a used car and we also know that once you’ve got it, you want to be driving it for many years to come – so you’ve got to find one that won’t let you down.

Dales Cornwall are a used car specialist with over 300 used cars in stock across our showrooms in Newquay and Redruth and we’d like to help you along the way when you’re shopping around for used cars. Knowing this information could be the difference between finding a reliable used car you love, and getting something that looks good at first but turns out to be a bad investment that costs you money.

Why consider Dales Cornwall for your next used car

There are many options when it comes to shopping for used vehicles. Whether it’s a used SEAT or used Vauxhall, or even a used Renault… whatever the brand or model you’re after, these options will always apply.

You could go down the original route and look in print publications such as newspapers and classified ads. You could make use of internet marketplaces and auction sites. You could keep your eyes peeled for cars on the street with those little “FOR SALE” signs in the window and a phone number underneath. And, of course, you could go with a car dealer that specialises in used cars. These options all work, but the car dealer is always the best option for finding a car that’s right for you. Here’s why –

  • With print publications, you get a tiny bit of information and a couple of photos, if you’re lucky. That’s not a lot to go on when you’re planning to spend a few thousand pounds on a vehicle and it leaves you in the dark until you’ve paid, so you don’t really know what you’re getting until it’s potentially too late.
  • With internet marketplaces and auction sites, you generally get more info and you do have the option to ask the sellers questions. But these aren’t always trustworthy sellers. Anyone can sign up to these websites and sell goods – you don’t know where the cars have come from or what condition they’re really in (you can’t go and inspect them before you bid). You also don’t know how supportive the seller will be if you have questions or concerns after you’ve made your purchase. Worst case scenario – you could even be buying stolen goods without knowing it.
  • Cars you spot for sale on the street do come with the advantage that you can look over the car and make face-to-face contact with the seller before handing over any money. But you don’t know about the history of the car and you don’t know about the seller. If they don’t answer their phone when you try to ask a question a week later, do you even have an address for them?
  • A specialist used car dealer is the most secure option because there are none of the risks associated with the previous options and there are many advantages, especially when buying from Dales Cornwall who even offer approved used vehicles to give you peace of mind that your used car meets manufacturer standards, even before arriving at our showroom.

Why buying a used car from a dealer is always the best option

You can check out the dealer’s cars and offers online first, with plenty of information and lots of good quality photos. Then, you can head over to the dealership and actually look at the cars while meeting the team in person – that’s really important for giving you peace of mind and getting trustworthy advice.

Then, when you’ve chosen the car that’s right for you, you can make a sound investment in a vehicle that you know comes with a good record and a clean bill of health. And best of all, you get a helpful team to answer questions and give follow-up support, should you need it, after you’ve made your purchase.

This one is really a no-brainer, so if you’re shopping around for a used car, be sure to go with a specialist car dealer Cornwall respects and enjoy all the benefits we offer our customers.
