Tips on buying used cars in SA with a limited family budget

If your family budget is limited and you need a vehicle, looking at used cars is usually the only option. The problem with second hand vehicles, though, is that you can never be sure about what exactly it is that you’re buying. People will say just about anything to get you to buy and most sellers won’t shy away from lying. What usually happens is that you end up wasting your limited budget on a vehicle that breaks down shortly after it was purchased, sometimes for reasons that could have prevented if only the seller had bothered to tell you the truth.
Another common scenario is that you end up spending a lot more on a used car than it is worth, because again information was withheld and a lot of repairs needed to be done. So, how do prevent this from happening? How do you ensure you invest in the right used car and get the best value for your money? 

Here are a few tips:

  1. Stay away from private sellers. Only buy used cars in South Africa from reputable companies who specialize in this sort of business.
  2. Ask for documentation on the cars history. Make sure you know all there is to know about the car you intend to buy. Don’t just take somebody’s word for it.
  3. Salvage companies can offer you great deals. Don’t just shop around for used cars at the usual second-hand places. For great deals also look at vehicle salvage companies. These places deal in cars that have been written off by insurance companies, but can be road worthy again with some repairs. Here, your money can go a long way.
To make sure all of the above criteria are met you should get in contact with Dynamic Salvage Management. We have a great variety of used cars that will perfectly fit even the tightest budget.

Used vehicles for sale: Where to go for a good deal

You need a car. A new one is not an option, so you’re looking at used vehicles. The problem with buying second-hand cars from a private seller is that information tends to get withheld. The private seller assures you that it hasn’t been in an accident and that it is in perfect working order. You buy the car because it sounds like a good deal and for the first two months it works perfectly. Then, of course, it breaks down and you find out it will cost more than the car is worth to get it repaired. Worst of all, this could all have been avoided if the seller had just been honest about the car’s condition in the first place.
This is a scenario that many used vehicle buyers have faced. It has led a lot of people to believe that buying second hand in general is simply a waste of money. But, what if there was a way to buy a previously owned car where you received all the information about the car’s history, so that you know exactly what needs to be done to get it road worthy again?
Well, there is. Before you buy a used vehicle through Dynamic Salvage Management, we will give you all the info to ensure you know what it is you are buying.
