Tips For Buying A Used Car As A Single Woman

  • Published: 30 June 2021

If you are a single woman looking for a used car, then you may be worried about buying alone or going to a car dealership. At Rosewood Motor Company, we are proud of the service and equality that we offer to our customers, but if you are heading elsewhere, here are some tips to make sure you get the right deal and the right price.

Set a budget beforehand

This one is so important and we know it can be easy to get swept up in the moment, trust us we have done it, but set your budget before you head out on your search and make sure you stick to it. Whether you are paying in full or looking to get finance on your car, make sure you have crunched the numbers, know what you can afford, and don’t get persuaded into spending more money.

Do your research

While you may know the kind of car you are looking for, it is important to do your research beforehand even if you don’t! Research the company you’re going to look at, check out the reviews, and also have a look at some of the cars you are considering too. Knowledge is power and so, doing your research beforehand, is going to pay off when you arrive at the dealership.

Watch out for hidden extras

When you buy a car, there are always going to be extra things you are offered and sold, but that doesn’t mean you have to take them. Watch out for hidden extras and make sure you consider whether or not you really need them.

Compare prices

Make sure you compare prices so you know you are getting a good deal. You don’t want to be overcharged and so, if you take a look online for cars of similar age and mileage, and model, you will get a good idea on whether or not it is priced competitively.

Know the mechanics

While you don’t need to get under the car for a full inspection, some basic mechanical knowledge will be helpful, or at least research the questions to ask when you are looking at the car, to make sure it runs smoothly and safely.

Those are our tips for single women looking to buy cars, if you are car hunting in Essex, come and speak to us at Rosewood Motor Company and the team will look after you.
