First Car ‘TIME’!

First Car ‘TIME’!

Sadly it’s never a good “Time” to buy your first car, plus it can be a very daunting experience, however the GOOD NEWS is that County specialist Vehicles have many years of experience and can help! Our friendly staff will guide you through the process and help make your experience as stress free as possible making sure you can get a great deal on the Pre-loved car that works best for you!

Some of the areas we know will help are getting the best deal on Insurance for new drivers, so many companies seem to offer little or no advice. Our own experiences looking over the years will testify to this, so choosing the right engine and insurance group could lead to you saving a considerable amount without realising that you were being overcharged at all. The insurance industry has changed considerably over the years, now the insurance groups ranging from 1 to 50, add to this letters within each category makes things far more complicated, so the best solution is to know what you can avoid and plan around what works best for your circumstances.

Another thing to add to the cost is the postcode where you keep your car and live, where you park your car, how often and when you drive and so on, these factors can all add to the premium. Sometimes, but certainly not always, adding a ‘black box’ may help new drivers reduce initial costs and not using the car between certain times, all things designed to help younger drivers avoid needing to make a claim in the first place.

Many people who have their first car are helped by family members and their individual experiences are always a good starting point. We firmly believe that our up to date knowledge of the used car market and the countless cars that are available to you, will put you on a sound platform to enable you to make an informed decision on your individual needs.

Many of the very latest modern cars come with a suite of advanced safety and pre-crash systems, these systems help achieve a lower insurance group as clearly the risk of an accident is reduced. However, these will come at a significant price increase over the slightly older cars, you could save £500 on the insurance but it will cost many thousands of pounds more to buy the much newer vehicle, so it is a balancing act. County Specialist Vehicles check that the cars systems are working, that the tyres are all in good shape and we give at least 10 months MOT plus a choice of warranty to suit your needs for up to 36 months. This we hope will give you the peace of mind that you are in the right hands.
