Looking for a quality second-hand car? There are a lot of routes you can go. One is shopping around (figuratively) using online trading platforms. Such as the Marketplace feature on Facebook, or services like Gumtree where the buyer and the seller deal directly with each other.
Obviously, there are perceived advantages to this. First off, you think you’re getting a better price because you’re “cutting out the middleman”.
But this might not always be the case. For one thing, is the car you’re buying really worth what the seller is claiming it is? For instance, they might justify an extra R5000 for a mod they claim is installed. Is the vehicle all up to spec? Are all its components working properly or will they break down a few months down the line, requiring a costly replacement?
One reason people sell their cars is because it isn’t driving ‘like it used to’. They could spend a bit of money to get it seemingly like it drives okay. So that when you take it for a test drive, all seems as kosher as kingklip.
But once the purchase has been made, and you’re tens of thousands (or more) out of pocket, you may find its performance on the road leaves a lot to be desired.
Why you want a trusted reseller.
BuyCentre is part of the esteemed Williams Hunt Group. We’re renowned for our high levels of service. For instance, when it comes to quality checks, our guys are veterans who know the ins and outs of cars like the backs of their own hands. They can instantly tell if there are issues with vehicles and their testing methods ensures that when you buy a vehicle from us, it is as we say it is.
That means the vehicle you’re buying is worth what you’re paying for it. Not “too good to be true”, as you’d often find on the open marketplace, where you’re not backed by guarantees, nor does the person have an established and trusted reputation they wish to maintain.
Where our app comes in.
You like browsing, don’t you? So browse a little on our app. Its functionality includes the ability to buy cars – which you’ll be getting from the aforementioned Williams Hunt Group themselves! To start off with, on your home screen, press: BUY.
Kind of obvious, right? Well, we cater to all sorts, and we don’t discriminate against the double digits!
Then you select what you’re looking for and hit FILTER.
The app is so nifty, you basically get to scroll through a selection of different vehicles and can swipe left to see the next one or swipe right to go back to previous ones.
Any car you happen to like and want to consider in more depth later, you simply swipe up. That’ll add that car to your wishlist. Feel free to keep swiping, though! You may not have found the right one for you yet. Keep going as long as you want.
Once you feel you’ve got enough to consider, go back to the home screen of the app and click on WISHLIST. This will let you narrow down your choices.
Keep in mind, though, these vehicles may be being looked at by others – and they’ll only be in your wishlist until somebody decides they like the car and buy it.
Once you’ve decided you’re in particular interest in one of the vehicles, click EXPLORE which will give you more info. And then click on ENQUIRE and before long one of our agents will contact you to begin the process.
Once you’re happy with your car, you’ll be able to come down to the dealership that has it and take it for a test drive, just to be 100% sure you’re happy with it. Which you probably will be, as all our second-hand cars are tested meticulously to ensure you’re getting quality goods.
Our app makes the process of searching for a new vehicle (that’s used) simple and fun. Plus, we will help you with all the paperwork when it’s time to make the purchase and transfer ownership to you. A step that can be cumbersome (and even open to fraud!) when done on the open market. (It’s important to reiterate: you really don’t know who you’re dealing with on open marketplaces and have no reason to trust them.)
But with us, as part of the Williams Hunt Group, we have a truckload of trust. (Although, we don’t buy or sell trucks. Unless they’re what the Americans call “pick-up trucks”.)
Download the app now at your phone’s app store. Simply type in ’BuyCentre’ into the search bar and you’ll be revving to go!
