Factors that need to kept in mind while buying old car

Factors that need to kept in mind while buying old car

Can you want to buy a car: for yourself or for your family then you need to read this article for selecting best and reliable car for your family or yourself in any country? Buying a car is not that difficult but when It comes to the fact that buying a car that is at good price and also comfortable for you then there comes seniority, and those who have great knowledge led by others who do not have.
Table of contents

1.      Researching the auto industry
2.      Searching for Cars dealers
3.      Wait and wait
4.      Conclusions

Researching the auto Industry
You want to buy a Car in United states or any other country. Then you need to do some research on internet or by calling to the people who knows about the industry. If you want to buy a car that has price of 5 lac then you should know that what type of cars sold on the current market when you buy the old version of that car. You can do the car industry research using the Internet or by taking recommendations from people.

What Questions you need to ask when researching about a car?

 This is a very important question. Someone must have to ask before buying a car, so here are some of the question that you need to ask when buying a car

Question 1: Who much this car is available in the market?

Question 2: What is the price of this car right now when it is zero meters?

Question 3: what is the minimum amount can I buy this car?

Question 4: What is the maximum amount that this type of used car can I find?

When you ask these questions on internet don’t set idol and think that you are done, go and find a person who has a profound experience in car industry, give them a gift and tell them that I need you on the day I buying car.

Here a very important question rises

Why you want to buy a car?
This is very important because at the end of the day you have to spend money and it is better to spend money wisely not just through it on someone else pocket, you need to have the best option when spend money on something.

Here one of the questions is ask, is what is the purpose of your buying car?
Are you buying car for your family, your son or your daughter or for your own comfort, so you need to decide the best decision when spending money on buying a car.

Searching for Car Dealers
If you want to buy a car that is already used by someone then one think that you must need is to never stop with just one dealer, check three to four car dealer with the same model of car you want to buy, then go with the best deal that you get.

Here, is a short story about a person who buys a car with a very reasonable price

A person goes to a car dealer and he ask for $15,000 for that car and he skip this offer and go for other dealer which offer the same brand a price of $12000. He goes to home and think of the best price he can afford and he offered $10,000 to the last dealer the dealer say “Yes” so he got the best car and the best deal that he is happy and so his dealer, a won-won condition.

Wait and wait

If you are an entrepreneur then you may know that buying anything cheap and at good price then you have to wait for a month or two until the company introduces the other version of the product.
Therefore, the best practice is to talk to the dealer and wait for his reply, give him time and you will find the best offer and the best deal of the accord.

The best thing you have is your time and money, if you wasting time to earning money then why you waste the money and time both in a deal that give you no value. So, whenever, you want to buy car first and the foremost thing you need is to get recommendations from people who has expertise in car industry.

Innovation is when you create something that has value added or the cost is decrease on that product.

Either the product cost is decrease, addition of new features, increasing the life time of a product or create something that is really the need of the time.

Here are some of the tips that help you to innovate:

   1.     Market Viability verses Big Data: Don’t ever confuse the big data as a very complex tool; instead a Google search can help you to study the market.

    2.     Deep listening: Listen to the problem people faces during their daily life, feel their pain and focus more on why question then what.

    3.     Cost analysis: Now, everything is clear, ask yourself how much it would cost, find every possible way to reduce the cost.



Fit:Based on Cost, you must find out how much profit your service or product will generate.

   5.     Demand:Determine the market cap, how much will be the demand for the product and at the same time where is the favorable space for selling this product.
   6.     Market Capture: Find out how much of the market your capture and how to scale your business.
   7.     Build a Product:
    8.     Bring product to the market:
     9.     Repeat step 1-7 again.

How to Be a Better Thinker, Innovator and Problem Solver
Here are some of the points that you need to remember will innovating things:

     1.     Ideas are Number game: When you get any idea about a problem, the first thing is to how to solve it, this is a first level thinking, you must have to go deeper to better understand the idea and to explore the idea.

      2.     Think in Questions: The bigger your questions will be the best solution you obtain, but you must have to work on those questions and to find the right answers.

      3.     Don’t come up with idea come up with solution: Let say you have a idea, a idea of a billion dollar, but no one will pay for it unless and until you come with a solution.

      4.     Think Different: Your different thinking will make you look different and even a authority person, speak at the right time and think about multiple things.
