So here you sit. The gorgeous artwork you surprised him with on your last anniversary has become a painfully permanent reminder of your lost love. Your relationship has ended; on an unpleasantly sour note at that. Now you are faced with the cold, hard reality that maybe you should have listened to your mother and left the ink to the biker down the street. You are not alone.
How can you apply that to your repair business? OK, so you’re not going to be adding a feature so your customers can talk to their spill, any time soon. What CAN you do?
Save hard and invest well – until you die. Unfortunately, this is the way most people become millionaires. However, it doesn’t seem like a very fun way to become wealthy. Who wants to scrimp and save their whole life to be wealthy? What good is wealth if you don’t use it to enjoy life? Personally, this is my least favorite of the choices. I’ll keep my latte a day, thank you very much.
Private sales are the trickiest but likely to net you the most money. However, you will need to be willing to advertise, set up appointments, have people come and inspect and test drive the vehicle, and transfer the title yourself. Having certain maintenance reports and other details on hand may also be necessary in order to successfully sell the car.
Be sure to ask the agents about unadvertised sales. They will not automatically tell you. Also, check out the prices of the vehicle you have in mind on the internet. Most prices are negotiable, so doing your homework can put you in a better bargaining position.
1) Know how much you want to spend. You can get a basic idea of how much a vehicle costs by visiting the website of dealers that sell the vehicle that you are interested in. Or you could easily work out how much you can afford on the monthly payments and then use an auto loan calculator to work out approximately how much you can spend on the car.
Rust is like cancer for a car. Once it starts it will only get worse and grow. Being that every car manufacturer except Saturn uses sheet metal and all use metal frames and undersides, rust is a major problem. Rust isn’t just a northern state problem. It can happen anywhere that there is moisture, extreme weather, salt (road salt used in winter weather and salty air and spray from the ocean). Rust can be prevented and treated, however.
If you have fallen victim and feel you have been ripped off with the vehicle you bought, then I would suggest you go to your Ministry of Transportation. The Ministry of Transportation will look into it if the car dealer concealed information on the vehicle’s accident history report. This may take some time but at the end of the day if you have been ripped off and feel you’re driving a lemon, then I would pursue this type of investigation by your Ministry of Transportation.
