Finding used cars in Hampshire

Do you know which steps to take when buying used cars in Hampshire? There are many top-class dealers in the Hampshire area that can help you get a second-hand car you can rely on. If you don’t have the cash to buy a brand new car outright, or would simply rather save the money, heading down the second-hand route could be the perfect move. You won’t have to worry about the depreciation drop and should hopefully still have years of great motoring ahead of you before you need to replace the vehicle. Never be afraid to ask as many questions about the car and its history as you feel you need to before you sign on the dotted line.

Do you need help?

Why not get help from a more experienced friend or family member if you do want to buy a second-hand car but have never purchased a used vehicle before? Someone with more experience should be able to use their knowledge to stop you taking steps that you might regret later. The local used car market is diverse enough to cater for a host of tastes.

Who should I be buying from?

Buying from a private seller could be a big risk. This is because you won’t be protected by the Sale of Goods Act and could face a tough battle to return the vehicle if you later find a fault that you should have been told about before. Read the paperwork very carefully and make sure the car has been taken in for servicing and MOTs as per manufacturer instructions. If you require extra peace of mind, you may well wish to run a car history check. This will tell you whether the car has ever been reported stolen or damaged in a crash.
