In general, buying a used car in Shropshire is not nearly as risky as it used to be. Thanks to increased mechanical reliability, more durable materials, and a greater selection, it’s easier than ever to make a confident buying decision.

However, you never want to fall prey to a false sense of security when buying a used car. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing business with a private seller, independent trader, or dealer, it’s imperative to learn more about a vehicle’s condition and history before signing on the dotted line.

When you collect the right information, such as the V5C form and service book, and combine this with a thorough inspection, you can avoid the nightmare of making a purchase that will cost you more on repairs than you would spend on a new vehicle.

Below is an infographic that details what to look for when buying a second-hand car. From the parts to inspect to the paperwork to review, we have you covered!
