How to Get a Used Car Deal: Decoding our Blue Tag Specials

Finding a terrific deal around the Richmond area isn't hard to find, but it may be hard to claim it first. Our blue tag specials generate several like-new vehicles sold far below market value. We understand that finding a reliable ride without breaking the bank is essential, so we do our best to meet our community's driving needs. However, these sales typically do not last long. If you want to make sure you don't miss out on a terrific deal, we've put together a few tips for how to snag the deal before someone else does.

Establish a Budget

One of the first things you should do when considering buying a used vehicle is to establish a monthly budget. How much are you willing or able to pay each month? This number should not be a stretch for you financially. Try not to calculate up to your last penny what your monthly car payment can be; instead, give yourself some wiggle room and be reasonable. A quick reference guide should be to expect $100 in monthly payments for every $5,000 you finance. While there are many variables to consider when formulating a monthly payment, this tool is more of a quick reference guide.

Identify Your Needs

After establishing a budget, consider the things you cannot live without in a vehicle. Making a list of the things you need can help you eliminate used car options that don't fit your unique lifestyle. This step will save you a lot of time and effort when considering various brands and models. Although, sometimes, understanding what you need around the Ashland area can be challenging.

It's easy to say that you need space in a new ride. There are at least two kinds of space when referring to pre-owned vehicle shopping. Are you looking for passenger space to transport a family or group of friends? Are you looking for cargo space to hold camping gear and luggage when picking up the in-laws?

Maybe you realize that the kind of cargo space you need is better served by a pickup truck. One of the best ways to identify your needs is to consider your current vehicle. What are some of the things that you love about it, and what are some things you would like to change? Use this list as a starter for what you might need in a vehicle for getting around the Sandston area.

List the Options

After you identify your budget and needs, consider making a list of possible vehicles that match them. For example, a truck or an SUV might suit your space needs, but an SUV might be more fuel-efficient. There will always be options that fit most of your needs and others that fit them all. Choosing between the two is a decision only you can make, but luckily following this guide should be simple. Also, look at some of the popular vehicles near Hanover. What is everyone else driving?
