Easy Ways to Save Money when Buying a New Car

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 4 months ago

    Next to your home, your car is the biggest investment that you are ever going to make. For this reason, you have to make sure that you are making the best decision and that you are also getting a great deal. These tips will help you to ensure that’s the case.


    Buy a Model that’s Outgoing


    Sales representatives will often give you a great deal on an older model if a newer one is just about to be launched. The only thing that you will be missing out on when you buy an outgoing model is a few gadgets, but the money that you save can be substantial. If you want to take advantage of this discount, then it is always a good idea for you to look at models that have a planned launch. Read up on motoring websites, and also ask your dealer if they have anything coming in. You can then use this information to strategically plan your purchase.



    Don’t be Picky


    If you want to grab a real bargain then you need to discount the wish-list that you have. For

    example, pre-registered cars are great in terms of value, but you will have to buy one off-the-shelf. There is nothing wrong with this, but the specs will be set, and you won’t be able to change the colour of the car either. By getting yourself into this mindset, you can save yourself months of waiting while you get one ordered from the dealership too, so it is well worth taking this into consideration.


    Haggle


    If you are thinking about trading in the car that you have right now, then this is a great idea and it can help you to save a substantial amount of money on your purchase. If you want to get the best result out of your trade-in then you have to haggle with your dealer. You also need to look up the true value of your car in its current condition, so you can avoid being low-balled by the dealer as soon as you arrive. If your car is not in good condition because you have been in a car accident then you may be able to claim for this too.




    Shop Around


    Not every dealer will have models for the same price. Sometimes it is worth travelling an hour or even two out of town so that you can get a much better deal. If you don’t want to travel then chat with the dealership over the phone. When you do this, you can then negotiate the price with them before you even get to the showroom. This is fantastic if you are short on time and it also means that you can ask dealers to price match with one another.


    Online Brokers


    Online car brokers do tend to have fantastic deals available, so when doing your car search don’t be afraid to look into them as well. When you do you can be sure to find a great deal and you can also really save money too.
