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.
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
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
