There are many trustworthy Mercedes used vans on the market. Mercedes is one of the most prestigious names in motoring and people save for years to cover the cost of not only their cars but their vans too. If you are interested in buying a used van, you should work out how much you can afford so you can rule certain vans out and make more sense of your search. If you don’t have the cash to buy a van outright, you may wish to get one on finance – just make sure you know exactly what you’re signing up for. If you’ve never bought a vehicle on finance before, why not get a more experienced person to help you?
Do your calculations
Make sure you’re not buying a bigger van than you need. If you don’t need to carry a sizeable load, you may find yourself spending far more than you need to just to get around. Do your sums and make sure you can afford to stretch to tax, fuel and insurance as well as the initial price tag. You should think carefully about where you’ll be travelling and what features you need. Buying from a private seller can be a big risk as you won’t be protected by the Sale of Goods Act, which allows you to return vehicles to dealers if you find faults that should have been pointed out to you before you bought the car.
Looking at the paperwork
Examine the paperwork carefully and make sure evidence of a full service history is available. You’ll also need to make sure the person or dealer selling the car is named on the documents. Whether you need a van for business or pleasure, you shouldn’t have to struggle to find something suitable.
