Tips on buying a vehicle

When it comes to buying a car, many people buy second hand in order to save the costs of a new car which of course often come at a premium having had no previous owner.

However there are risks involved with buying a vehicle second hand, as indeed is always the case when it comes to buying any second hand goods. Here we look at a few things to consider.

Before you go and see the vehicle, you should first source a reputable source of adverts. You should try to get in touch only with people who have landline phone numbers, because if something is dodgy this is much easier to trace than a mobile phone number which can be very hard to hunt down.

If photos of the vehicle don't show the registration number, then this is something to be wary of, according to advice given by the DVLA.

You should find out the location of the vehicle's VIN, or vehicle identification number, so that you can check this against the V5C, or registration certificate.

When you do see the vehicle, you should be sure that you see it in daylight rather than at dusk or night where it might be harder to see and visually inspect the vehicle for any problems that you might encounter. You should arrange to see the vehicle at the home of the owner, and check about the financing of the vehicle and specifically whether it has outstanding finance or not.
