Purchasing a vehicle can be intimidating, especially if you've never bought one before. There are several steps you can take to prepare yourself and your bank account for this large purchase. Doing your homework now can prevent future headaches.
Your first step should always be to reflect on what you'll want on your checklist. Make a list of all the important things you want from a vehicle, as well as all the important things it needs to do. A soccer mom may need extra seating for carpooling and great deals of room for sports equipment, while a bachelor or bachelorette might enjoy a smaller sportscar for zipping around town and easily parking in tight spaces.
While your budget is essential, so is your credit. If you plan on taking out a loan when you start visiting used car dealers, your credit score will play a role in what you can afford. If your credit is good, the bank may want to work with you to lower your interest rate. If your credit is bad, the APR may be higher. Many of the larger used car dealers work hand-in-hand with banks to ensure they can assist people, regardless of their credit score, in obtaining the best possible loan rate and payment plan. Obviously, you may independently obtain your own financing before making an offer on a car. The choice is yours.
Next, check the vehicle history on a site like Carfax.com. If the vehicle checks out, schedule a test drive of the car, and try to test it on roads like the ones you would typically encounter during your day-to-day routine. Ask any used car dealers you visit for records. After considering all the aspects of the car and whether it fits your budget, make an offer to a trusted salesperson.
While negotiating, don't hesitate to take time to think about counter-offers, use the bathroom, or eat a meal. There should be no rush when making this decision, and the salesperson should help you feel comfortable.
Are you looking to transport a large group in style? If so, you may want to consider renting a limo bus. Instead of looking to reserve a regular van or charter type vehicle, consider the excitement of renting a deluxe automobile. These vehicles offer all the amenities and luxuries of normal limousines, but are able to accommodate a sizable group. As a result, they are perfect for special occasions or for making a good impression.
