People can get all the benefits of having a nearly new car, without having to suffer the loss of depreciation.
Manchester, UK (PRWEB UK) 14 November 2013
As sales of new cars soar to their highest within the last five and half years*, there has never been a better time for motorists looking to snap up a used car bargain.
So says Emily Henshall, Marketing Manager at online car finance specialist, Carfinance247: “With the sale of new cars at an all time high since the start of the economic crisis, the knock on effect is that there will be a wider selection and better quality used cars available for a buyer looking to upgrade their car without having to buy brand new.”
Ms. Henshall states there are many used vehicles available to buy that are still relatively new (i.e. with 2012 and 2013 number plates) “meaning that people can get all the benefits of having a nearly new car, without having to suffer the loss of depreciation, which can be anything from 12-25%** in less than 6 months."
She adds: “So while the news headlines are all about brand new car sales, now is a good time to look at a second hand upgrade with a growing number of used vehicles to choose from”.
