How Do You Find A Good Car To Buy
You're ready to purchase a second hand car and you're wondering how to get a new car, there are few questions you need to answer correctly that will help you in buying the type of car you want either fairly used or brand new.
1. What do you really want in a car?
This is an important question you should ask yourself before you venture into buying any car because the answer is as good as the car itself. Do you want a car that consumes less fuel, has affordable spare parts, easy to maintain and still has ample space?, Do you want a car that can withstand Nigeria pot holes, cost less, consumes less fuel?. Questions like this should occupy your mind before you venture into buying a car.
2. Why do you want to buy the car?
Do you need it to be a private car for social occasions or you want a simple car for your work or perhaps you wish to run a taxi service on a part time basis. You have to decide why you want to buy the car. Know what you want to use the car for and consider the city or locality where the car will be use.
3. How much do you wish to spend in buying the car?
You don't have to buy a car that you can't afford to maintain neither would you want to buy a cheap car whose spare parts are expensive in Nigeria. Again, you don't have to consider price as a yard stick over actual value of the car. Don't buy a car because it's cheap. The car may have some hidden faults which you may not easily find out and will cost you dearly in fixing it up later. So, go for grade 1 cars and know the average market price before fixing your budget.
Having such questions in your mind and the answers to them, then you can proceed to buy your car of choice. Below are a list of websites you can buy either a fairly used car or a brand new car in Nigeria.

Other places where used cars are advertised for sale are national newspapers sites and other similar OXL Nigeria classified Ads sites such, Dealfish and TradeStable with the contacts of the seller. Also some known road side car dealers may have cars at bargain prices but these are usually rare.
When buying used cars, it is a good idea to buy from a seller within your city. Note that you need to inspect the car in person, so buying used cars from outside your city will involve traveling. Do not pay for a car you have not seen physically, do not supply your bank details to anybody. Go with a mechanic or your car operator when buying the car to assess how sound the car is. You can negotiate with the car seller online or through the phone but do not purchase it online. Call the car seller, ask questions and setup a meeting. Beware of FRAUD!
