If you are looking for a new car, the chances are you have been looking at two choices - new or used. However, these are not your only options.
Buying a nearly new car could save you money, giving you all the benefits of a new car but without the new car price tag. Many do not realise that it is possible to buy nearly new cars at a lesser cost than that of a new model, but it is becoming increasingly common. Buying a car this way makes great sense, as you can be safe in the knowledge that you are driving away a quality car that is also great value for money.
Most nearly new cars are ex-demo or pre-reg cars and, as a result, they have been very well looked after and most are as new. Of course, finding nearly new cars is not as easy as finding older ones and you aren’t able to add extras to your specifications, but, by checking websites like Stoneacre.co.uk it is easy to find the car you’re looking for.
So, why would you opt for a nearly new car as opposed to a new or used model?
Ultimately, a nearly new car could save you money over a new model. The car might not even be a few months old, but because it’s not classed as new you can save yourself a lot of money and you aren’t necessarily limited to a few cars either, you could potentially get any model you wanted if you know where to look.
Often, the downside of purchasing a used car is not being within the car manufacturer’s warranty and therefore the regular added cost of maintenance and replacement of parts makes it more expensive to run. However, nearly new cars have very low mileage, and will keep the remainder of the manufacturer’s warranty. So, if the car is two months old and had a five year warranty you will still have four years and ten months remaining which gives you greater piece of mind than if you had opted instead for a used car.
Buying a new car is a big decision but with your choices bolstered by the option to purchase a car that has all of the benefits of a new car with a much smaller price tag, it’s a fantastic dilemma to have. Whilst buying a new car has the plus of being able to add optional extras and building a car to your exact specification, it also means that you’re gradually building up the cost at the same time. With a nearly new car you can often find a car with the same additional extras, but for no extra cost. Meaning not only are you getting an almost brand new car for a fraction of the cost of a new model, you are also getting the optional extras you would otherwise have paid for, for free.
You can get great finance deals on nearly new cars as many dealers are willing to taylor a payment plan to suit your individual needs, so whether you’re paying for the car outright or you are wanting to spread the cost you will be able to get the right deal to suit your pocket. You could also get a generous part exchange valuation on your current car, regardless of whether it’s a car you’ve had for a while or even a car you are still paying for.
