      In this money inflation era, not everyone can afford a car that suits his needs. That is why; selling and buying used cars in India has exponentially increased. This article will help you in this process by providing used car buying tips and used car selling tips in India.

      1. Used car buying tips

      • First and foremost, categorise the vehicle you want to buy. You can categorise the car on the basis of its price, brand and conditions, etc. Once you have completed this step, the next thing you should do is to do some research to find the appropriate car.

      • By now, it is expected that you have found your dream car. If, by chance, you could not find it, it is better to increase your area of research. You can also try to increase your expected expenditure range.

      • Research about the history of the vehicle and its last owner. The reason for this is very basic. What if the car was stolen? What if some day police approached you enquiring about the last owner? It is your duty to do a thorough research.

      • Negotiate the price. Once you have given a green card to the vehicle (after research), you can fix a meeting with the seller and fix the price of the used car.

      • Check all the legal documents. That’s the final and perhaps one of the most important steps.
