Do not buy your used car locally. Go to BEFORWARD or any other reputable used car importer and buy from there. Local dealers have their benefits, but when you buy your car online and wait for a couple of weeks or months for the delivery from overseas, you get a good deal.
For most people, the preference is to buy used cars over new cars. Importing used cars is also becoming very popular. Importing a used car can be very tricky since you are dealing with the seller online. It is also difficult to tell if the people you are dealing with are actually genuine. For these reasons, it is vital to choose a good used car importation service.
Some features to look out for when choosing a good used car importation service include:
24/7 Customer support
A good used car importation service offers efficient customer support. When importing a used car, you are expected to choose a suitable car in terms of affordability and preference. It is also important to know the requirements and restrictions in your country as far as used car importation is concerned. Some countries place restrictions on the age of the used vehicles being imported. For example, in Kenya importing used cars older than seven years is not allowed.
Choose a suitable exporter who assists in exporting the cars you choose. It is your responsibility to take care of import related matters and have a customs broker who prepares documentation and takes care of the logistics at the port where your car will enter the country. A good used car importation service offers 24/7 customer support throughout the important process and keeps you up to date on the progress of the import.
Car information check service
A good used car importation service offers car information check service. It is important to check the history of a used car before buying it. A car’s history entails everything that been to it for example tire rotations, reconstruction, change of oil, accidents repair and so on.
The history of your car is also very important where if your car gets damaged in the future, the mechanic is able to form basis of the cause using the history. You should also find out about any aftermarket addition made to the used car. Sometimes aftermarket additions could be dangerous especially if the alteration was done on the components of the engine hence changing the specifications for the specific model. All this tedious research is made easier by a good used importation service.
Wide variety of vehicles
People have different preferences and tastes in everything, and especially in vehicles. Some prefer big and strong vehicles while others choose small and posh vehicles. A good used car importation service provides a credible platform full of vast variety vehicles to cater for each client’s needs.
Money back guarantee
What if the car you ordered does not arrive in good condition or it is just not available in the market? Will you get your money back? You should, or maybe even get an option to choose another car. Almost everything else sold online has a return policy and so should a used car. However, note that such a service can only be provided by a good and well-established importer.
Images are everything
The only way you can get to see the car that you want to import is by seeing pictures of the same posted online. Thus, on the website of the secondhand car importer, there should be interior and exterior images of the cars that are available. That way, you will not be buying blindly. Also, make sure that what you saw in the images posted online is what you get at your port of entry.
