Thinking about buying a used car? Smart move!

At CARS24, we think of used car buyers as the wisest and fiscally responsible consumers in the market. As new car prices continue to rise with long waiting periods for the most sought-after models, buying a certified pre-owned car is often the best way to get more value for your money versus buying a brand new one.

Whether you’re going to purchase from a local dealer, a private seller, or an organized pre-owned car seller like us, we’re here to help you with the entire used car buying process.

Do Your Research:

Cars24 Blog

The automobile industry is growing rapidly, and your information regarding a particular car model may be outdated in a short time. Browse through the online websites, one of the best sources is CARS24 Blog to know the latest trends in the automobile market. Collect relevant information about different models and features so that you know what to look for. There are various forums and blogs where users post their comments and feedback about different models. While their opinion may differ from each other, it gives you an insight into the pros and cons of various options. You may also post your queries and get information about the credibility of dealers and online sites so that you make a well-informed decision.

Find Out The Market Value:

Browse through the classifieds and the online seller like us, as CARS24 prices for second-hand cars are derived from the lakhs of happy customers who have bought or sold cars with us. The prices may vary according to the city or state, as taxes and registration charges vary from state to state.

Decide Where To Buy:

After doing your research, you can decide on where to buy your second-hand car from. An organized used car company is the safest bet. The cars undergo a stringent quality check before purchase. They all come with an inspection report that gives you the exact condition of the vehicle, a 140 checkpoint test in our case. Also, these cars come with a warranty, six months for any car at CARS24. Also, all our cars are refurbished to perfection and are as good as new, so you can find some of the best options right here at CARS24.

Local dealers, private sellers, and classifieds are the other options to purchase a pre-owned car, but without the perks of the inspection report, warranty, etc.

Get The Car Inspected:

If you decide to buy a used car from a local dealer, classified, or a private seller, it is advisable to get the vehicle inspected by a professional to ensure its condition. With modern cars, you can get the car’s service history from the respective brand (OEM) itself.

Take A Test Drive:

A test drive allows you to make sure you are getting your money’s worth. You certainly don’t want to end up buying a car that doesn’t satisfy your needs or is not comfortable to drive around. With CARS24, we’ll deliver the car of your choice to your doorstep; it’s more than a test drive! In case you’re not happy with the vehicle, you can simply return it within 7 days of delivery and get a complete refund.

Verify The RC & Insurance:

The Registration certificate is the most important document that needs to be verified while buying a used car. The RC card/book gives information such as the owner’s name, state of registration, date of registration, number of owners, chassis number (VIN), the engine number, and other important details of the vehicle. At CARS24, we ensure every car’s information is thoroughly vetted, and we take care of the ownership transfer post-purchase.

In case of purchase from other sources like dealers or private sellers, ensure the documents are genuine, the vehicle is not stolen or involved in a road accident of any sort. Also, check the insurance of the vehicle for validity, the type of insurance ( zero depreciation, comprehensive or third party) as claims can vary based on the type.

Keep these things in mind when you buying your next car! Also, you can instantly buy from thousands of certified pre-owned cars with a click of a button and get it delivered to your doorstep at your convenience.
