Every year, around this time, we here at eCars247 decide we want to spend the winter somewhere nice and warm, like the Maldives. Unfortunately bank managers tend not to see things from our point of view and always insist that we should tough it out with the rest of you poor mortals and remain in the freezing UK.
Last winter was bad, wasn’t it? The Beast From The East (or ‘Thursday’ as those hardy folk in Northern Finland call it) struck us with full force. The number of accidents increased by 267%. Add to that the number of breakdowns and damage caused by cavernous potholes and it’s not surprising we prefer to stay indoors. Sadly though, life and work must go on so when the winter chill clamps it’s icy fingers on us we will reach for the thermal underwear and the massive gloves and make ourselves weather proof. Sensible drivers also make sure their cars are up to coping as well. If not, it may be time to be looking to buy a replacement vehicle.
It may not seem like it but it’s a good idea to buy a used car in the winter, especially if you're looking for a good deal. The trouble is, this means dragging yourself out of a nice warm home to start the search for the right car to suit your needs. Certainly, the starting point will always be the internet but, even when you have established a short list of likely candidates, it will still be necessary to go and check them out. Worse still, the really good cars could well be many miles away.
Once found, they have to be checked (and nobody should be looking over used cars in poor light or in the sleet and rain), followed by a fifteen minute test drive which is not really enough to establish if this is indeed the right motor for you. If only there was a better way.
Fortunately, There Is.
Imagine how good it would be if potential used car buyers could properly peruse stock online to assess suitability. An estate car perhaps to manage the family, or maybe an economical urban runaround? It would also be useful to know the full specification; low emissions maybe, or lively performance. A prestige, leather interior might be preferred or perhaps budget or finance is paramount. It would also be nice if the vendor was upfront about condition; that’s why plenty of images are so necessary and the important thing is, even after all this, you still haven’t left the house!
Of course, the icing on the cake would be if the car came to you and stayed, not for fifteen minutes but instead on a full two weeks approval. Now that’s service.
By now you will have likely seen where this is going. Here at eCars247 we take pride in providing a full and complete service to car buyers. Choose the right car from our high quality stock
