Have you dreamed about a car for a long time, but for a long time you couldn’t afford to buy it? You could not buy a new car and for a long time did not want to buy a used vehicle? Have you waited for your friend to decide to change his car and sell it to you? Congratulations on your purchase of a used car. We understand that the process of choosing and purchasing a used car was associated with many difficulties and with great excitement. But now everything is over, you own a car of which you dreamed. But before you start to use the car every day, you must take a few important steps so that your car does not upset you during its operation. We tell you to find out what you should do first of all after buying used cars for sale in Sidcup.
Ten things you should do after buying a used car
This is the first and obvious step. After all, even despite the fact that the car is already yours, you still cannot legally operate the car on the roads until you register it with the traffic police, and also until you acquire the insurance policy. Remember that after signing the purchase contract for the vehicle you are obliged to arrive at the State Traffic Inspectorate within 10 days from the date of purchase of the car and re-register the car in the traffic police database, which stores information about all owners of vehicles.
In order to re-register the car in the traffic police you must purchase a policy. Of course, many of us after the acquisition may seem that this car can be operated with a policy, which was issued to the previous owner of the car. But then you have to remember that with such insurance you can drive only no more than ten days from the moment of signing the contract of sale. After this period, you must purchase your personal insurance policy in your name. Otherwise, you face administrative responsibility for driving without insurance.
Make a comprehensive diagnosis of all vehicle systems
In fact, you should have done this even before buying a car (before signing the contract of sale). But if you, for some reason have not done it yet, then before operating the car you should know its technical condition, and most importantly the level of safety of this car. To do this, conduct a full technical inspection of the state of the machine by contacting this request in the auto repair shop. Remember, you should have a complete picture of what you bought and what you should be prepared for in the future.
