Checks to make before you buy

When it comes to buying a used car, there's a few things you should consider before sealing the deal. Here at RAC Cars, we've outlined what we believe to be the all-important checks that you should complete. From examining the vehicle's exterior to looking under the bonnet, it's essential that you're happy with the car you're buying.

Search RAC approved dealers

Get from A to B in complete safety by buying a used car from an RAC approved dealer. We understand that when it comes to getting your second-hand vehicle, you want nothing but peace of mind with your purchase. All you need to do is enter your postcode into the search field and your local used car dealers, which are RAC approved, will show up.

Insure yourself for short trips

If you’re planning a test drive or have just purchased a new car and need insurance to drive it home, you should consider whether your existing car insurance policy offers the cover you need. A temporary car insurance policy is a quick and easy solution, and a new policy can be set up in a matter of minutes for as little as one hour.
