We’ve decided to share some of our vehicle buying top tips gleaned from decades in the industry and thousands of car deals.
Because we’ve been around the block more than once, we know just about all there is to know about the different makes of vehicles on the market. We specialise in advising people and businesses on how to get into vehicles in a way that ensures they get a good deal and won’t be stung in the long run.
‘The proof of the pudding is in the eating’ as they say, and many clients have stayed with Driveline for decades, vehicle after vehicle because we’ve ensured the way the finance is set out means that they won’t lose money down the track.
All this experience comes with some advantages; we use our insider knowledge to the advantage of our clients.
Here’s our vehicle buying top tips:
1. Get some expert advice.
Nothing beats real experience. Driveline offer free advice on vehicles and how to structure the finance to suit your situation and ensure maximum tax advantages.
2. All finance is not created equal.
Don’t be fooled by low interest or 0% finance offers as these are not necessarily the best deal in the market. Here at Driveline, we deal in volume and have substantial manufacturer and dealer discounts on new vehicles. Always interrogate the numbers and make sure you know the overall cost of ownership. We do this for our clients as standard.
3. Finance is not forever.
Whether you’re buying on HP or leasing it’s good to sign up to a finance product with built-in flexibility. That way you won’t be stung if your circumstances change or you want to upgrade. Unlike most leases, our SmartLease™ doesn’t lock you in to the term. No matter which finance product you choose, it’s always good to know what you’re exit options are before you sign up.
