Contrary to belief, buying a used car in December could save you a huge amount of cash, in fact, last Christmas CAP Automotive advised buyers that purchasing a used car in December could save them the cost of Christmas!
December is widely renowned as being a quieter time for used car sales. In the past, buyers would wait for the January sales in order to grab themselves a bargain, but now with the sales being brought forward to before Christmas, there is no longer a need to wait that long.
In fact, Independent experts on car and motoring costs, CAP Automotive, reported buying a used car in December rather than waiting until January could save the average buyer more than £500!
Philip Nothard, CAP’s retail & consumer specialist, said; “For many of us the idea of spending more money in December might be particularly unappealing, but the CAP figures show that it can offer some genuine savings in the long term if it’s a car you’re after.
‘The influence of what we call ‘seasonality’ may already be familiar to the more savvy of consumers. Some take advantage of it by purchasing their four-wheel-drive in the height of summer and sell it again when others are contemplating how they’ll get through another snow-bound winter. Another trick is buying a good old ‘rag-top’ when it’s cold and wet, rather than when demand shoots up with the approach of spring.
“The trick is to go against the trend and buy when other people aren’t looking for the same thing – and that means December can be a brilliant time to change your car.”
Neil Addley, managing director at TrustedDealers.co.uk, said; “ A lot of dealers want to get their stock down in December so it makes for a great month for bargain hunters. With finance really cheap, there really hasn’t ever been a better time to buy a used car.”
