Buying a used car over a brand new one comes with a bunch of benefits you probably haven’t considered. Aside from the lower price, there is less depreciation and lower insurance costs to enjoy
Buying a car is one of the biggest investments and decisions you will make in your life and it is one you should not take lightly.
Many people consider buying a brand new, out-of-the-box vehicle. And while the new car smell is one of a kind, buying a used car can be as rewarding and as exhilarating as buying a new car when you make an informed decision. Either way, when you buy a vehicle, new or used, you are introducing a new and exciting asset into your life and it is an asset that should bring with it convenience and value.
Many think that buying a new car is always a better option than buying a used one. However, this isn’t always the case. When you consider the following, a used car can bring with it more benefits than you think at first glance.
You’re buying a less depreciating asset
We are all familiar with the saying that a car loses most of its value as soon as you drive it off the lot. This is true for the most part, especially when purchasing a new car. A new car depreciates rapidly over the first few years of its lifespan. When you buy a used car however, you are lucky enough to get it after the depreciation period, which means that, under your ownership, it depreciates a lot slower than a new car would.
You’re getting it at a better price
One of the greatest appeals of buying a used vehicle is the fact that it does not pinch your pocket as much as a new vehicle would. You have the opportunity to shop around and purchase a vehicle that best suits your needs and your budget. The prices of all vehicles vary greatly, even amongst used cars. But Youth Garage has a team of experts who can help you find the perfect fit for your lifestyle and your pocket.
Quality is certified
There are a lot of concerns that come with buying a used vehicle such as the quality of the vehicle, has it been in an accident and the maintenance cost of the vehicle. It’s natural, when we find a vehicle at a really good price, we begin to get suspicious about the quality of the vehicle. Youth Garage closely inspects every vehicle that comes into the showroom. Meticulous inspections like this ensure that your used vehicle will run as well as a new vehicle will.
You’ll pay less on insurance
Buying a vehicle is not like buying a pair of shoes. There are a lot of contributing factors that influence your decision. One of these contributing factors is insurance. This is something that also needs to fit your budget and it is something that few choose to go without. Depending on the vehicle you buy, insurance costs vary greatly; if you purchase a high-risk car, chances are you are going to pay a substantial amount in insurance.
In general, used cars, when compared to their brand-new counterparts, have lower insurance costs to the owner. Your monthly insurance payments will be lower on a used car than they will on a new one.
You have more chance of getting a bargain (this section doubles up on ‘You’re getting it at a better price’.
New cars are set at a certain price across the playing field and you rarely find a bargain on a new car unless it comes at a loss to the garage that is selling it. Purchasing a used car, on the other hand, perfectly fits the cliché that each one is unique. Each used car will have its own unique features, such as the kilometres driven, maintenance and service history, and the year model of the vehicle. In many cases, no two used cars are set at the same value. This allows for buyers to get bargains on used vehicles. Knowledgeable salesman salespeople at Youth Garage can help you shop around for the car that best suits you.
Youth Garage aims to assist each and every customer in buying a vehicle that is best suited to their needs. Hand-picked to your preference by our experts, your vehicle becomes an intimate member of your family. While used cars may have a lower book value, they can still be priceless to a new owner.
