Buying a Land Rover is one of the most exciting things, especially if you’ve been a lover of the brand for quite a while. Finally, you’re going to be behind the wheel of one of the best luxury car brands in the world. However, it’s not always as easy as that, and when it comes to purchasing your Land Rover, you may not even know where to begin. After all, you have to decide whether you want to go for a new or used car, and you also need to think about who you’ll buy it from. We’ve noted down some of your options here!

A new car dealer One of the first places that pops into people’s heads when it comes to purchasing their Land Rover is a new car dealer, and there are a few benefits to buying a brand new car. Firstly, you get a full manufacturers warranty in case anything goes wrong, which means that you can rest easy when it comes to how your new car is going to run (and how any problems are going to be dealt with). It also gives you the peace of mind of knowing that nobody else has been driving the Land Rover before you, and as such, there are definitely no issues with the car. Finally, there’s just a feeling that you get from having a brand new car that we can’t really explain, you know?
A used car dealer Your second option is heading out to a used car dealer, like Georgesons Cars. There are many benefits to buying your Land Rover here, such as the fact that trustworthy dealers will always do a full check of the car, to make sure that there are no issues with it. It will also be valeted, so it feels like it’s a brand new vehicle, too. You will be saving yourself a lot of cash if you head to a used car dealer, whilst still getting the car that you’ve always dreamed of. If you’re buying secondhand, it’s a good idea to take this route, especially if you’re not too clued up on looking out for any issues. They will also give you up-to-date information about services and MOTs.
A private seller You can also get your used Land Rover from a private seller, which gives you the opportunity to cut out the costs that having the middleman (the dealer) usually incurs. Whilst this can save you a bit of cash, it also requires a bit more persistence, as you’ll have to look around for a seller, and you need to visit each car individually to have a look at them. It’s also pretty difficult to know who to trust without the involvement of a used car dealer, but if you’re somebody who knows exactly what to look out for, then this shouldn’t be too much of an issue. Private sellers can provide some real gems, for great prices, so if you’ve got the time then this is certainly an option worth considering.
So, if you’re looking to purchase a Land Rover, then check out these options!
