Timing really is everything. If you’re looking for your next car, or have already decided on what car to pick, one way to slash costs is to buy at the right time.
Find out below our top tips to keep in mind when buying your next car.
1. When is the best time to buy? It’s sometimes not as obvious as you think…
Considering new cars are registered on the same two months of every year, surely it’s a given that the best time to buy is alongside the huge offers that coincide with this?
Well, more often than not for used cars, it’s a different story. Often, sales events are held throughout the year separately to new cars and the manufacturer offers to avoid confusion. The January sales are notorious for grabbing a great deal and for cars it’s no different!
It can pay to shop in quieter periods as dealers will be happy to take the opportunity to clear out stock, expecting a flood of vehicles in the run up to a new plate change. These months would be January, February, July and August.
2. Buy with confidence – main dealer service history is important
At Perrys, for all our used cars we offer Experian history, mechanical checks and a warranty. And if it’s due a service or MOT soon, we’ll take care of it for you before you buy.
Talking of which, getting your servicing done on your vehicle at one of the manufacturer’s official dealers may cost a little more in the short term, but can save you more money when it comes to changing your car in the future.
3. Pay your way
The huge range of ways you can pay for your car nowadays can be daunting. From HP, PCP, cash or a combination of them, it’s not easy sometimes to understand what will suit you.
Make sure you buy your next car from a dealer that has an experienced finance team and allows you flexibility. Everyone is unique, that’s why it’s important to get a finance deal tailored to you.
Perrys have been helping people choose the right car for generations. Representing 12 of the UK’s most well-known car brands for vehicle sales, servicing, parts and much more, we’re always just a phone call or email away.
