Buying a used car at any time is always worth careful consideration, from what type of car do you want, to what colour do you like.
During times of Covid-19 restrictions it is still possible to buy a used car if you adhere to the social distance guidelines.
During the previous lockdown, car dealers were allowed to sell cars to customers online and let them take delivery via a contactless service, and many are saying they will continue to trade using this formula as a secondary sales model moving forward, opening up a world of opportunities to car buyers.
If you haven’t already done it, you might be surprised to know that buying a car and arranging finance for it is fairly easy to do remotely as many dealers providing comprehensive descriptions, photos and videos online.
If you are looking at a car online but you’re not entirely sure, it may be worth contacting the dealer and requesting a walk around video. These are relatively easy to do and in challenging times it may be safer and more economically friendly to your car dealer to utilise this service first before calling in ad hoc and having to wait.
“The used car trade is buoyant at the minute with more drivers taking advantage of readily available stock and put their savings to good use” said local used car dealer Jakub Kulis, owner of JK Car Sales, Richhill
“Families who have saved money on their holiday this year are using that money to purchase a second family car to free up more time when restrictions are lifted”
Test drives are still possible, whilst following the guidelines. Potential buyers can take test drives of cars provided they adhere to social distancing guidelines and the correct insurance is in place and that trade plates are displayed where appropriate.
