Cars are great, but can erode your savings if you don’t make a smart purchase. When you’re shopping for a car, there’s a lot at stake, including time, money and your family’s driving happiness for years to come. As much as getting a car is important to us, getting your car the wrong way can cost you much more than you bargained for. So, even though vehicles play an important role in our lives, and we need something comfortable and reliable, there are a few major mistakes you need to avoid when you’re buying a car. Just one relatively minor mistake can cost you thousands and put your other financial goals in jeopardy.
- Shopping at just one dealership
When it comes to finding a great deal, it pays to shop around, so we’ll advice that you plan on checking out at least three different auto dealers around USA. You don’t want to do this in person — and you don’t have to. You can use our Personal Shopper service to get a bang for your money. We’ll compare deals to get you the lowest price for the best quality.
- Buying a brand new car, just for the sake of warranty
Years ago, if you wanted a warranty, you had to buy a new car. A used car purchase was like the roll of the dice. Today, you can often get used cars that transfer original warranties, and can even buy certified pre-owned vehicles that have not only the original warranty, but have undergone inspection with any needed repairs done.
- Buying cars with very high odometer
It’s safe to say that most car buyers would prefer to drive off the lot with a brand new vehicle that’s straight off the factory floor. But in the real world, people are bound by real budgets. Conventional wisdom suggests that any item that’s purchased second hand should be more on the ‘gently used’ side. That ‘proper maintenance and care’ factor is pretty much going to determine which high-mileage car you purchase, if you decide to purchase one at all. You need to know not only the mileage of the car but how it was treated while it accrued those miles. And the best way to obtain that information is to turn to two main sources: the vehicle’s maintenance history report and your mechanic – With us you don’t have to worry about this, as we handle both with our team of experts.
- Buying From Sources You Don’t Trust
To find out about previous driving conditions and maintenance, it is important to check the vehicle’s registration history via all available sources as well as also ask the seller for service records. Vehicle inspection from a trusted mechanic is also a must and Shoptomydoor would always put your safety first.
- Purchasing Stolen Cars
What’s not commonly known is that if you as a buyer knowingly purchase a stolen car you are in effect breaking the law and liable for prosecution. At Shoptomydoor, we help hundreds of our satisfied customers get the best cars at affordable prices direct from trusted top auction and car dealers in USA. We follow up at every stage of your transaction, clearing till we deliver to your door.
