How To Purchase Cars Online Without Any Hassle

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

Buying a car can be a wonderful time. Choosing from the many cars that are available, seeing all of the new technology that has been introduced since the earlier car purchase and taking the car for a test drive can fill a person with a certain sense of excitement and happiness.

However, as with all things in life, with the whole thing good there comes something bad and purchasing a car can bring with it the hassle of spending precious spare time searching around car dealerships for the right car, being harassed by car salespersons and not forgetting the anxiety that can be brought on due to the sum of money that needs to be spent.

Most of these points, though, are only relevant when buying a car in the traditional sense, offline, which makes for purchasing cars online an almost completely harass free process.

As soon as a person decides to buy cars online, there are various options available to them. Auction sites, classified advertisement sections, dedicated for sale areas in car forums. All of them collectively give a vast amount of different cars to choose from. Removing the need to talk to any over assertive sale people or spend days outside looking in dealerships, to purchase cars online is praised by many as the best way to buy a car.

With this in mind, there are certain precautions that should be taken before a person buys a car online and several procedures that must be carried out to ensure that the car advertised is the one that is purchased.

First of all, it is very important that the car is seen in person before any money changes hands. Particularly if purchasing from an online auction site, most sellers will not permit for a person to win the auction and then refuse to purchase the car once they’ve arranged to pay and collect. Due to this reason, it is important in this case to take the time to arrange to view the car to make a judgment on whether it is worth the asking price and it is as described by the vendor.

There are numerous vehicle checks that can be made, which are not just restricted to online car purchase, by buying a report from the government or dedicated vehicle licensing company in the country that the car is registered. These reports normally cost money, but show in-depth information about the car and its history, including whether it has ever been in an accident in which it was written. While the report may cost money, being aware of this information before a car is purchased can make sure that a vehicle that is not as described is not purchased, which can cost a considerably larger amount of money than the report.

It is a common misconception that to buy cars online there needs to be a considerable amount of trust involved from both parties, significantly more so than in an offline sale. However, with the exact amount of research and by making the proper precautions, to buy cars online can be hassle free and can save the car buyer a considerable amount of money.

Buying A New Car

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

A new car is second only to a home as the most expensive purchase   many consumers make. According to the National Automobile Dealers Association,   the average price of a new car sold in the United States as of June 1998 was   $23,480. That’s why it’s important to know how to make a smart deal.

Buying A New Car

Think about what car model and options you want and how much you’re willing   to spend. Do some research. You’ll be less likely to feel pressured into making   a hasty or expensive decision at the showroom and more likely to get a better   deal.

Consider these suggestions:
1. Check publications at a library or bookstore, or on the Internet, that discuss new car features and prices. These may provide information on the dealer’s costs for specific models and options.

2. Shop around to get the best possible price by comparing models and prices in ads and at dealer showrooms. You also may want to contact car-buying services and broker-buying services to make comparisons.

3. Plan to negotiate on price. Dealers may be willing to bargain on their profit margin, often between 10 and 20 percent. Usually, this is the difference between the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) and the invoice price.

4 .Because the price is a factor in the dealer’s calculations regardless of whether you pay cash or finance your car – and also affects your monthly payments – negotiating the price can save you money.

5 .Consider ordering your new car if you don’t see what you want on the dealer’s lot. This may involve a delay, but cars on the lot may have options you don’t want – and that can raise the price. However, dealers often want to sell their current inventory quickly, so you may be able to negotiate a good deal if an in-stock car meets your needs.

Learning the Terms
Negotiations often have a vocabulary of their own. Here are some terms you may hear when you’re talking price.

1. Invoice Price is the manufacturer’s initial charge to the dealer. This usually is higher than the dealer’s final cost because dealers receive rebates, allowances, discounts, and incentive awards. Generally, the invoice price should include freight (also known as destination and delivery). If you’re buying a car based on the invoice price (for example, “at invoice,” “$100 below invoice,” “two percent above invoice”), and if freight is already included, make sure freight isn’t added again to the sales contract.

2. Base Price is the cost of the car without options, but includes standard equipment and factory warranty. This price is printed on the Monroney sticker.

3. Monroney Sticker Price (MSRP) shows the base price, the manufacturer’s installed options with the manufacturer’s suggested retail price, the manufacturer’s transportation charge, and the fuel economy (mileage). Affixed to the car window, this label is required by federal law, and may be removed only by the purchaser.

4. Dealer Sticker Price, usually on a supplemental sticker, is the Monroney sticker price plus the suggested retail price of dealer-installed options, such as additional dealer markup (ADM) or additional dealer profit (ADP), dealer preparation, and undercoating.

Financing Your New Car

If you decide to finance your car, be aware that the financing obtained by the dealer, even if the dealer contacts lenders on your behalf, may not be the best deal you can get. Contact lenders directly. Compare the financing they offer you with the financing the dealer offers you. Because offers vary, shop around for the best deal, comparing the annual percentage rate (APR) and the length of the loan. When negotiating to finance a car, be wary of focusing only on the monthly payment. The total amount you will pay depends on the price of the car you negotiate, the APR, and the length of the loan.

Sometimes, dealers offer very low financing rates for specific cars or models, but may not be willing to negotiate on the price of these cars. To qualify for the special rates, you may be required to make a large down payment. With these conditions, you may find that it’s sometimes more affordable to pay higher financing charges on a car that is lower in price or to buy a car that requires a smaller down payment.

Before you sign a contract to purchase or finance the car, consider the terms of the financing and evaluate whether it is affordable. Before you drive off the lot, be sure to have a copy of the contract that both you and the dealer have signed and be sure that all blanks are filled in.

Some dealers and lenders may ask you to buy credit insurance to pay off your loan if you should die or become disabled. Before you buy credit insurance, consider the cost, and whether it’s worthwhile. Check your existing policies to avoid duplicating benefits. Credit insurance is not required by federal law. If your dealer requires you to buy credit insurance for car financing, it must be included in the cost of credit. That is, it must be reflected in the APR. Your state Attorney General also may have requirements about credit insurance. Check with your state Insurance Commissioner or state consumer protection agency.

Trading in Your Old Car

Discuss the possibility of a trade-in only after you’ve negotiated the best possible price for your new car and after you’ve researched the value of your old car. Check the library for reference books or magazines that can tell you how much it is worth. This information may help you get a better price from the dealer. Though it may take longer to sell your car yourself, you generally will get more money than if you trade it in.

Considering a Service Contract

Service contracts that you may buy with a new car provide for the repair of certain parts or problems. These contracts are offered by manufacturers, dealers, or independent companies and may or may not provide coverage beyond the manufacturer’s warranty. Remember that a warranty is included in the price of the car while a service contract costs extra.

Before deciding to purchase a service contract, read it carefully and consider these questions:

1. What’s the difference between the coverage under the warranty and the coverage under the service      contract?
2. What repairs are covered?
3. Is routine maintenance covered?
4. Who pays for the labor? The parts?
5. Who performs the repairs? Can repairs be made elsewhere?
6. How long does the service contract last?
7. What are the cancellation and refund policies?

Now you have to pay $80 a month in gas, and there are oil changes, new batteries to buy, and other unanticipated expenses. We advise all car buyers to purchase a car that you can afford to pay off in four years. You must also put down 20% on the car to keep from receiving upside down, where you owe more on the car than it is worth. If you cannot put down 20% on the car, then do not buy that car.

Online Tips for the Purchase of A Used Car

Tuesday, March 24th, 2009

Purchase of A Used CarThe modern day world is centered round the computer and the internet. Today many people opt to do transactions through the internet rather than personally go about buying or selling things. Things have now become comparatively easy with many sites offering their services for buying and selling various things. Used cars can also be purchased through the internet. The advantage of these online sites is that you can purchase the car that you can get the best deal. You can also get the ideal car to suit your needs and your budget. You can choose the type of car you want, a very old used car, or a fairly newer one, or a vintage model. You can also choose the manufacturer, the make and the model. All this can be done sitting at home, at the click of a mouse. The car you require may be sold by an individual, a car dealer or a car auction. Be careful of sites that are frauds.

  1. Before buying a car and going to the online site, be sure of the type of car you need. You should know how often you will use it, whether you are buying if for your own self or for the family, whether you have the finances for buying the car, whether you can afford to spend regularly on its maintenance. The answers will determine which car will suit you according to the mileage that it gives and your budget. You should keep in mind that you have to include the insurance, the road tax and other costs into the budget. You should also shop around for the lowest interest rates, if you are going to take a loan.
  2. With this information you can go to the online site and check out the car you like. You will get details about cars along with their pictures. Then you should contact the seller. You should get his landline phone number along with his mobile number. You should find out about the history of the car. This includes the car’s service and damage history. You should know about the make, the model, the year of manufacture, the transmission etc. of the car. You can also ask for a picture of the inside of the car. If the car has been properly maintained, the value of the used car will be more. If it has been involved in accidents or has had some damage done to it, the value of the car should be less. You should also see how the engine functions in a used car. You should check if the description given by the seller matches the photos posted by him. Get the vehicle identification number. With this you can check out the condition of the car by getting a CarFax report.
  3. Choose at least five cars from the online sites that sell used cars. Gather all the details about these cars from various sources. Do not rush into buying a car. Wait and do a thorough research, and get the car that fits your needs and your budget. You should find out about the price offered by the seller. You should try to negotiate the price. Find out who will pay for the shipping charges and negotiate the price of the shipping also.
  4. Before deciding the price, it is best to consult the Kelly Blue Book or the Edmund’s website to know the true value of the car you have decided to purchase. The price given in the site might not include the various taxes and other fees that might have to be paid.
  5. After having decided on the car and the price, it would be best to check out the car in person. You should examine the inside and outside of the car, take it for a test drive and get a mechanic to check it. Then you should see that the owner has all the necessary papers like the registration, vehicle identification, the log book and the service history of the car.
  6. After you are satisfied with all the above factors, you can buy the car. After the payment is made, get a receipt with the signature of the seller with the address and car details. Have two copies – one for the seller and one for yourself. If you cannot go directly and see the car, online transaction is possible.
