what to look for when choosing a used vehicle

For many of us, a vehicle is one of the most important things we possess – and with so many practical reasons for owning a car, it is safe to say that making the right decision at a dealership is invaluable. Before even entering the forecourt, there are a number of things you should take into consideration in order to save yourself both time and money:

Factor in your running costs

If you’re on a budget, it makes sense to purchase a smaller, more economical car than a gas-guzzling behemoth. If you’re on the road a lot, it might make sense to opt for a model renowned for reliability on long journeys – consider how you can best keep your costs down, and let that information influence your purchase.

Consult a reputable dealer

If something seems too good to be true, chances are you could be letting yourself in for a major disappointment. A reputable West Midlands dealer such as Motor Market only provides high quality vehicles covered by warranty – so consider your maintenance/return options in the event of faults. Are you really going to get top quality service from the bloke who advertises cars on the grass verge by the edge or a roundabout? It’s typically better to err on the side of caution and stick with a name you can trust.

Consider trading in your old vehicle

Part exchanges typically offer good value for money, with the added bonus of enabling you to opt for a newer, more efficient model at a lower cost. If you’re interested in part exchanging your current car for a new one, simply contact Motor Market today for some free advice.

Good Value

Value is one of the most important factors when buying a used vehicle. You need to ensure that you’re getting the best deal for your money, so look closely at the overall value of what’s on offer. At the end of the day, price is just the amount you pay, value is what you receive.

Peace of mind and confidence

Peace of mind and confidence are part of the overall value that we offer. At Motor Market, all of our vehicles are independently inspected by the AA, we also have an excellent aftersales reputation and are happy to help in the unlikely event of a problem. In fact we pride ourselves on going that extra mile for our customers, many of whom have trusted us for many years. It’s always great to see several generations of the same family coming through the gates here at our Cradley Heath dealership.

We look forward to welcoming you!
