Buying a car at auction from BPI Auctions

Previously on the blog, I’ve written about the pros and cons of buying cars new, nearly new or used. When you’re buying a car used or nearly new, as well as checking out the side of main roads in your local area, you can also look online.

Whether it’s your first car, or you’ve bought several cars, buying a car can be a nerve-wracking experience. I’ve been fortunate, as my Dad used to be a mechanic. Growing up, I was always interested in cars, and he taught me the basics. If I want to buy a car, I still take him with me. Failing that, I ask my Uncle-in-law along, as he’s also very knowledgeable about cars.

There are several things you should bear in mind when buying a car, whether it’s new, nearly new or used. Hopefully this will help you out! View Post
