We run through some of the benefits of why you should consider buying a used car.

Reasons Why You Should Buy a Used Car

Aside from dodging the premium price tag that comes with buying brand new, buying a used car – if done correctly – can give you a discount motor. We run through the reasons you should consider buying used.

Reduced costs

The first main benefit you’ll see when comparing new and used vehicles is the reduced price. Many dealers sell ‘pre-reg’ cars, which are technically classed as ‘used’. A pre-reg car is one that has been registered in the name of the dealership, meaning when you buy it that you’re classed as the second owner, resulting in great savings for you. Search pre-reg cars

When you look through used cars, it can be hard to decipher what a good deal actually is. With so many factors to take into consideration including mileage, age and MPG to name a few – it can be confusing. At Regit, all of our used cars are ranked fair, good, or excellent, with all of the above factors, and more, taken into consideration, so you know if you’re getting a good deal.

Manufacturers like to look after their vehicles once they’re purchased so they can maximise after sales revenue. As a result, many will offer service and MOT packages to make sure their cars keeps returning to them. If the car you’re buying has stayed with its manufacturer for its servicing, it’ll likely come with an ‘approved used’ badge, meaning it still carries the manufacturer’s warranty.
