Car-buying hints and tips

The first thing you need to do is get your finances into order. Work out a budget and stick to it. Decide whether a personal loan, car finance or cash will work best for you - we could help with that. 

If you're buying a used car remember to:

  • Keep on top of used car market prices 
  • Inspect the car carefully 
  • Bring a friend who knows a bit about cars
  • Take a test drive
  • Negotiate the best deal
  • Make sure the deal is in writing 
  • Transfer the money online or via banker's draft to the seller
