Buying a car can be a pretty exciting time. Dealing with salesmen, not so much. Sometimes we just want to be left to browse, and do our own research. Most of us spend weeks or months doing our homework and planning our next vehicle. It’s been said that 83 percent of people search online for information and feedback about potential car purchases. It’s a big process, and a stressful one for many. After all, who wants to risk spending all that money on a lemon? Things are changing, most of all so that dealerships can evolve along with the Internet, but coping with a car salesman can just add to the stress.
The salesman has a job to do. He needs to convince us that the product will make life easier, improve our quality of life, save us time or money, or offer benefits that we cannot get anywhere else. Sales has been described as an art, a science and even a game. Car salesmen are human, though, and for the most part just want to do their job well, and make a good income.
Others, can be tricky, which is where the used car salesman stereotype originates. They might try to convince us to buy on impulse, or spend more than we really want to. Here are a couple of ways to remain in control of the situation, and withstand aggressive sales tactics, and ultimately go home with the perfect vehicle.
You might take note of a salesman’s language. Instead of greeting you with “can I help you to find something?” you might hear instead “are you looking for an SUV or a sedan today?” This type of language makes it difficult to simply tell him that you’re just looking around. It’s active language, meant to steer you in the direction of a purchase. The salesman has also opened the door to a relationship, and is probably now at your side, and not going anywhere.
As you tour the lot, if you ask a salesperson about a vehicle, you’re going to be told only of it’s best features. Don’t expect to learn about the negatives from him, but that’s what the Internet is for. Feel free to pull out your smartphone and do your research on the fly, while it’s all fresh in your mind. There are plenty of websites that will quickly give you the good and the bad, along with value, specs and reputation.
Along with language comes pricing. Let’s face it, if you ask a salesman for a vehicle’s price, hearing “seventeen, nine” sure sounds better than “seventeen thousand and nine hundred dollars,” doesn’t it? Never forget that these are real dollars, a great deal of money that needs to be paid one way or another.
Pricing can be tricky. A sticker price in the tens of thousands of dollars can seem so unreal that it doesn’t really register. Many of us don’t shop based on that number. Instead, we make our affordability decision based on what our payment will be. Hearing “$162.93 biweekly” sure sounds a lot better than “$25,000.” You’re still investing $25,000 though, so don’t get in over your head.
Pay attention to upsells. These are the extras that a dealer, and salesman make a lot from. On a used car, you may feel better protected with an extended warranty. However, you may not need leather protection for a car with vinyl seats.
A salesman might be clever as he persuades you to look closely at a particular vehicle. He may tell you that it’s a big seller, creating instant validation- after all, lots of other people chose this car, so it must be a good one. He might even tell you how great you look sitting behind the wheel. Who doesn’t love hearing that? Vanity will get us every time. Don’t fall for the flash, there are more important reasons to select a vehicle. Stay firm and buy only the car that makes sense to you on paper, not in the mirror.
Be prepared when going in. Know what your budget is, and stick to it. Ask your bank about any auto loan options, so that you’ll be better equipped to compare them with what the dealer is offering. It might be a good idea to check your credit score too. You’ll know ahead of time what financing options are available to you that way. Poor credit scores generally mean higher interest rates.
Finally, you can always say “no” and walk away. If you are uncomfortable, or unsure, step back. There will be plenty of other cars, and dealerships around when you are ready, and they will be thrilled to get your business.

Industrial growth and decline can be measured by the latest trends that are going on in the particular industry. Let’s see that how the used automotive industry has been performing in the trend of global recession.
Global recession has affected every industry. The prices of brand new cars have shot up due to the fact that raw material prices have faced the rising trend. The brand new automotive is now costing more than $20,000. While on the other hand, the earning power and the salaries of the consumers have not increased. Recession has knocked many industries and caused downsizing in many firms. The purchasing power of the consumers, due to this reason has gone down. They are delaying their unnecessary luxuries and now focusing on the necessities. The automotive for traveling is one of the major necessities now-a-days. This has increased the over all demand in the used automotive industry. Consumers are trying to save their money by putting limits on their desires and compromising with what they can afford within their budgets.
The other dimension that can be viewed in used automotive industry is that, the rental cars industries offer new and stylish cars. They are used to send the used automotive for auctions that is another reason that have increased the number of used automotive in the auction companies and has lessen down the prices of used cars. Decrease prices however, does not decrease the overall worth of the used automotive. Online auction companies have provided an ease for the consumers to buy the used automotive of various types under one roof.
The used automotive industry with increasing demand is now being $100 billion industry. The used automotive industry is selling almost 20 million used auto motives in a year. This has clearly pictured the growth of used automotive industry. With this progress and other factors like Japan’s earthquake and t-tsunami; and shooting up gas prices has forced the dealers of brand new cars to shift towards the used automotive industry. The number of used automotive dealers has risen immensely from 100 dealers. Many dealers have placed the used automotives in their showrooms so to ensure high sales and profits.
Over all the used automotive industry has shown the higher rate of returns than the brand new exclusive automotives. Bottom line is that recession has not seriously impacted the used automotive industry. So if you are interested in buying the used automotive, you can do it without any hesitation.
Today we are looking at an infographic provided by https://www.visualistan.com/2015/07/buying-used-car-infographic.html, they have a lot of cool infographics and articles on their website so you should definitely go check it out! I’ll be talking about what I learnt from this fabulous infographic and how it is useful for anyone looking for a new car in a quick and easy visual burst of information.
The best thing about an infographic is that they are visually appealing! It is a quick and easy summary of information and it can look really nice. The big test is usually if you actually feel informed at the end and if it feels like they covered everything you were wondering about. In my opinion, this infographic is great it covers all the important factors when buying a used car, it lets you know the pro’s and the cons, it lists a bunch of considerations you surely must think about when buying a car and gives you other information about safety and price. Car detailing can add a lot of value to used cars, so be sure to get it done if you ever sell your used car. We recommend mobile car detailing services like these guys.
One thing I usually struggle with is haggling on price, this infographic suggest to try it out. Maybe I need to take an expert haggler with me when I buy my next vehicle, someone that has a lot of confidence when dealing with strangers. Budgeting is another huge factor, you should not be buying a car that you cannot afford. The infographic has some great ideas on that, make sure you consider not only the original cost of a used car but also the potentially higher maintenance costs and other costs associated with an aging car.
I learnt a lot overall and will absolutely consider all of the information in this image the next time I am going to buy a used car!
What is a safety rating? Why are they important? The answer is obvious, well for the second question anyway. We spend a huge amount of our time in our cars as a whole, a large portion of the community use their cars for a huge amount of reason, the work commute, getting the weekly shopping done, picking up the kids from school and just any other reason we need to get from A to B. Sometimes we see ourselves as invincible, nothing could go wrong for us right? We are the best drivers on the road! Unfortunately, this is untrue, mistakes happen all over the place and you could very easily be in a car accident. It is super important for you to have the safest car you can afford, the ANCAP safety ratings are a guideline that can be consulted to help you decide on a safe car for you and your family.
ANCAP has a vision to eliminate road trauma by encouraging safer vehicle choices, they operate on a star rating system ranging from 0 (unsafe) to 5 stars (safe), the star rating indicates the level of safety of a vehicle for the occupants and pedestrians in the event of a crash. It also looks at the car’s ability through technology to avoid or minimise the effects of a crash. These safety ratings are used to compare the relative safety between vehicles of a similar mass.
All of ANCAPS ratings are determined based on a series of internationally recognised, independent crash tests and safety assessments – involving a range of destructive physical crash tests, an assessment of onboard safety features and equipment, and performance testing of active collision avoidance technologies.
ANCAP assesses vehicles against four key areas:
Adult Occupant Protection (AOP)
Child Occupant Protection (COP)
Pedestrian Protection (PP)
Safety Assist (SA)
ANCAP carry out a vast range of tests and assessments within each of these areas, the vehicles tested are required to meet a minimum score for each star rating level. The overall star rating of a vehicle is limited by its lowest performing area of assessment because even if one aspect of a car is safe if another one isn’t then the car is not safe. Here is a timeline of how the safety system has evolved.
Adult Occupant Protection considers the level of protection offered by the vehicle to adult occupants seating in the front and second row in the most common types of serious injury crashes.
Child Occupant Protection evaluates the level of protection offered to child occupants seated in appropriate child restraints in the rear seats. The ability to effectively accommodate a range of child restraints is also assessed.
Pedestrian Protection assesses the design of the front of the vehicle to minimise injury risk to a struck pedestrian. Vehicles are also assessed for their ability to actively avoid or mitigate impacts with pedestrians and cyclists.
Safety Assist evaluates the presence and effectiveness of active safety technologies fitted to the vehicle which assist the driver in preventing or minimising the effects of a crash.
All of these scores are tallied up and for a car to score a 5-star rating it must perform to the highest level across all these crash tests and assessments.
What does this mean when buying your car:
Look at the safety rating for your model you are interested in, 5 stars are obviously great but not always attainable just because a car has 3 stars doesn’t necessarily mean it isn’t safe enough for you. Just look up the details of the report for your car on the ANCAP safety website. Safety is very important and you should do whatever you can to keep your family safe though, maybe when purchasing a car look for a 5 star rating rather than a stylish finish. Be aware that if a car has been modified, for example a stretch limousine then the manufacturers safety rating can not be assured. Although limousines may have reduced safety rating, it’s important to remember chauffeured limos are driven by experienced operators who have vast experience drive speciality vehicles so you can be more confident in their safety.
Buying a new vehicle is always an interesting time, you have to weigh up a huge amount of different factors ranging from budget to practicality to simply “I don’t like that colour”. Obviously some factors are much more important than others, the budget one in particular, how does this purchase hit your hip pocket? In this post we will explore the pro’s and cons of that new car vs a reliable second hand vehicle.
Being a car enthusiast sometimes it can be hard to look past that new car feeling, everyone wants the flash new thing on the scene, however a brand new car in any category ranges from $16,000 AUD to any amount above that. The new car feeling isn’t the only reason to get a new car though, generally with a newer model car you know it is going to be in good working order. Unless of course you get unlucky like the owners of the 2010-2016 Ford Focus, Fiesta and EcoSport models for instance which unfortunately had a very big problem with their Powershift automatic transmission. This is obviously not a common occurrence when buying a new car but unfortunately it can happen.
Another advantage of buying a new car is that generally a newer model car will have better features including things such as a better hud and maybe even more safety features. There is another factor with newer cars, you know exactly what has happened inside of it! You don’t have to worry about the previous owner having done anything disgusting in there, obviously this is only a minor worry.
Older cars have several advantages also, the obvious advantage is cost. You could pick up a perfectly good vehicle for no more than 3000 dollars, this is obviously a very big deal. You can get a second hand car to fit almost any budget. There is also a huge amount of second hand cars available and for the most part you can browse thousands of options from your own home. www.carsales.com.au is a great place just to have a browse.
Obviously with an older car that has a previous owner you could run into problems with the car itself, it is an older model it could be nearing the end of its healthy running life, it could just be won down. This could go either way though! An old car with a complete history of service means you know exactly what has happened to it over the course of its life. People can fake these things but generally with a test drive you can get a good feel for an older car, you can even get it checked out by a mechanic to ensure you are happy with it.
In conclusion buying a new car can be a stressful time and with this article I have hoped to just present some pro’s and cons to both sides. Cost is the overwhelming factor so make sure you really think about your budget and don’t get yourself into trouble getting a loan for a car you cannot afford. We cannot argue with the fact that driving a brand new car is amazing though!
The Toyota Land cruiser is the four wheel drive of choice for a lot of people, especially those with large families. It is a very capable car capable of traversing some of the most rugged terrain. With seating capacity of 8 people it makes an excellent getaway machine for large families who like to adventure in remote areas.
The 80 series has built a reputation as one of the best value and capable four wheel drives on the second hand market. The Turbo Diesel GXL is very sought after and has held it’s value over the years. The diesel model is ideal for towing or driving up the beach in soft sand. The powerful engine gives plenty of power down low to get through areas where most other four wheel drive may struggle. They also come in a luxury version built by Lexus. The Lexus 470 is a top of the range vehicle with plush carpet and all the electronics you will ever need.
Ask a carpet cleaner what the best vehicle is for their business, well depending on who you ask, you will get a number of different opinions. It’s well worth considering all the options before you dive in and buy a Carpet Cleaning van. You will have to consider the type of jobs you will be doing. Will you be doing Commercial carpet cleaning, or just bond cleaning and home carpet cleaning?
For high-rise office carpets and inner city carpet steam cleaning, if would be better to have a smaller van then will enable you to get to those tight inner city locations. If you want to specialize in large scale commercial carpet cleaning then you should consider a truck mounted carpet cleaner or a larger van that will be able to mount a large carpet steam cleaner.
Sometimes for the smaller jobs or for upholstery cleaning and car interior cleaning you may be able to use a small hatchback vehicle and use a portable steam cleaning unit.
A lot of carpet cleaning businesses also do pest control services and that will require extra space in your vehicle to carry all the pest control spraying equipment. It’s worth adding to the equation the accessibility that each model vehicle has. Some vans will have sliding doors on both sides to enable you better access. Also, the height of the carpet cleaning van is a consideration and some may not be able to get into underground parking.
As it’s a business you will also have to be concerned about the fuel consumption of the vehicle. If you are going to doing a lot of driving then your fuel cost could be quite high. Often it’s worth thinking about diesel powered vehicles as they tend to be able to do more kilometers before an engine rebuild is required.
When you decide on the right van for your carpet cleaning business, then you should plan carefully the best layout for all the carpet steam cleaning equipment and accessories. Make sure you take the time to think about this as if could make a lot of difference in the way you operate your cleaning business. Being efficient and providing a great carpet steam cleaning service for your clients is the goal so you can grow a successful business.
A large commercial Carpet cleaning Van is a good choice if you need plenty of room for your carpet steam cleaning equipment. Also, they have multiple doors to give you access on both sides. A popular choice for carpet cleaners is the Toyota Hiace van as it has a reputation for being very reliable. One of the best carpet cleaners in Brisbane have used these vans for many years and highly recommend them for contractors.
