Car Buyers Guide

Buying a car is one of the biggest purchases we make. The process can be an exciting and rewarding one but for many the overwhelming amount of choice and industry jargon can turn the experience into a daunting, intimidating, confusing and stressful one. Our job is to make your car buying experience as simple, hassle free, fun and transparent as possible. We will help narrow down hundreds of cars and payment options to tailor fit around your lifestyle, budget and preferences.

We've broken up the car buying journey into a few simple stages to help you know where to start researching your next car. This guide aims to give you a brief overview on the different aspects of buying your next car. If you have specific questions that we haven't answered below you can contact one of our online team through our online live chat. Alternatively you can give us a call or pop in for a visit!

The main point is....it's all about you!

Finding the perfect car all revolves around you. Take some time to ask a few questions about yourself. Things like your lifestyle, your budget, family and your personal preferences. Are you already a driver? Are you a commuter? Do you often have one or more passengers in the car? These are questions you need to consider at the start of the car buying journey.

You should also work out at this stage what are your wants compared to your needs. On a restricted budget you may desire a car loaded with all the latest mod cons but you may have a large family necessitating storage and passenger space over the connivence of mod cons. Prioritising your budget with your needs and wants is a good starting point.
