How to get the best deal for your wheels

Get the best bang for your buck by making sure you get the best valuation for your vehicle.

If you’re thinking of selling or buying a second-hand vehicle then EWN’s Jacob Moshokoa has the low-down on getting the best deal for your wheels.

Moshokoa says that if you’re in the market to purchase or sell a car, evaluating the vehicle allows you to obtain a rough estimate of its value.

It gives you room to budget and to play around with.

Moshokoa says that negotiating is important as a seller and a buyer. He adds that you have to start high as a seller, but know your lowest price as well.

Stop and ask what year your car is, says Moshokoa, then try to match it up. He adds that you can work out how much you owe the bank and how much other dealers are selling the car for.

You could also make a bit of a profit there.

Moshokoa says that there’s nothing wrong with going to a secondhand dealer, and asking them what they would rate. He adds that they are generally cool and will assist you to get the best deal out of your vehicle.
