Looking to buy a Land Rover? Perhaps it’s your first Land Rover, or you’re upgrading your existing model - whatever the reason, would you consider buying second-hand?
Buying a used car is a great way to become a Land Rover owner, allowing you to enjoy a high-quality vehicle without the price tag of a brand new car. Want to know why pre-loved is best? Here are some of the benefits of buying a preloved Land Rover.

Cars depreciate

It’s no secret that cars depreciate in value after purchase, although not quite the drastic slump that many people believe. But cars tend to depreciate more in those early stages of ownership, which means that buying a second-hand car can give you more value for your money. So while you might be able to benefit from some extra deals when buying a new car, that initial depreciation may make them less valuable than you think.

Take advantage of dealers’ knowledge

There are many ways to buy a pre-owned car, but one of the best ways is to visit a local dealer. A dealer will have expert knowledge about cars and can help you make the right decision. Ron Skinner and Sons have an excellent choice of used Land Rovers, which could be a bargain compared to a brand new car. Your dealer will be able to answer any questions you have and give you some tips on your Land Rover, helping you feel more comfortable during the buying process.

Negotiate on a lower price

It can be difficult to negotiate on getting a lower price on a brand new car, it’s more likely you’ll get extras offered to you rather than a cheaper deal. However, with a used car, there could be some more wiggle room to save money. There are plenty of ways you can negotiate when buying a second-hand car, helping you come up under budget with some money left over to treat yourself!

Save on other costs

When you buy a used car, you’ll be surprised at some of the other costs you’ll save versus buying a new car. Your insurance could be lower, for example, and because cars last longer than they used to, you might not face as many issues as you would have five or ten years ago. You might even strike lucky and find a Land Rover for sale which is still relatively new, allowing you to benefit from the latest model, different upgrades and more, without paying the full price.
Buying a preloved Land Rover is a great way to be able to fit one into your price range. Used cars are better than ever, giving you plenty of options to suit your taste and budget. Land Rovers don’t come cheap, but as a car with a high-class reputation, they are worth the investment. Look at some tips on saving money on a used car to help you get a great deal and become the proud owner of a Land Rover.
