When you realize that walking, riding your bike or traveling by tram or by train to work no longer satisfies you, it’s probably high time you got your own car. If you’re a man, buying your own car is a dream came true. You will surely enjoy deciding what type of car you will purchase, how much bhp it should have, what extras you need on it, etc. If you are a woman, you probably have different criteria for choosing a car. The color, the size, the bag space are the most important. If you are a mother, the space for children is definitely the key problem.
In case you already own an old car, selling it in order to raise money for a new one would be a good idea. We all know that sometimes used cars create more problems than the benefits they bring, as one may end up wasting a lot of money on repairs. Therefore, the perfect solution would be to sell the old car and thus partially finance the new one, so as to offer yourself more comfort, actually thus save money, not to mention that in this way you will have fewer technical problems.
Of course, on the other hand, selling the old car will not bring enough money to buy a new one, in most cases. That’s why a perfect solution is a vehicle leasing contract, no matter if we speak of a van, small car, etc. You can use as down payment the money obtained from selling the old car and get a loan under the form of a leasing for the rest of the car value. You would thus pay less interest, by borrowing only a part of the car price.
Of course, you can buy the car cash, but in this case you will block a considerable amount of money into a car, instead of investing it into something else. Therefore, a leasing contract will allow you to manage easier your monthly income, not to mention that it will offer you the luxury of enjoying a new car, without having to worry about technical details or about your monthly income.
All in all, a used car could be cheaper when buying it and may appear as a means of saving money on the short term. However, you would actually save money by buying a new car, as you will no longer have to repair it periodically, not to mention that the comfort and safety it offers are the most important benefits.
