If you’re part of the UK inhabitants that are buying a car in the next 6 months, you need to know how to haggle to get the best deal possible. To give you an idea, 6.6 million cars will be sold in the next six months in the UK, according to data revealed by Sainsbury’s. Of these, half will be new and half in second hand.
What we can’t predict is how good these deals will be, because some car buyers don’t even know how to haggle. However, the average buyer can still haggle an average £939 off of a car.
So, what do you need to know when trying to reduce the price of the car you’re buying? First, chose the brand and model you want and check where you can buy it. Then, it’s time to make a low bid and negotiate the price with the seller.
Don’t panic and don’t give up, both you and the dealer are only looking to make a good deal, and, especially, don’t be afraid to turn your back to the seller and walk away.
If he’s not giving you a good deal, it’s not worth it and, once he sees the deal is off, he may go back. To get more information and learn how to properly haggle, you must see our infographic.
