Are used cars worth it?


Sales of used cars regularly exceed new car purchases by more than three to one. Two of the biggest reasons why it’s worth buying a used car is the wide selection available for any given budget and avoiding the depreciation of a new car’s value.

Are used cars cheaper to insure?


​Generally speaking, used cars are cheaper to insure than new cars, as long as they aren’t too old and don’t have vintage value. You should always make sure you are aware of the associated insurance costs before purchasing any car.

How to sell a used car?


Selling your used car can be a stressful experience and there are several things you should do to ensure a smooth sales process. Start with advertising your car accurately with mileage, condition and service history stated. Once you have a buyer, make sure you agree a safe payment method such as a bank transfer or cash exchanged on banking premises. And finally, make sure your paperwork is in order; write two receipts for payment (one for you and one for the buyer), complete and send the V5C ownership documents to the DVLA, and hand over all service log books, MOT certificates and warranty information to the new owner.

Does servicing a car improve performance?


​Undoubtedly, servicing your car will ensure it is running to its peak performance level. It is not a legal requirement but it also ensures the car is safe to be on the road and it could save you money in the long run if issues are identified early. Plus, it will increase the lifespan of your vehicle and possibly help preserve its value.

How much car servicing costs?


Here at Prestige Cars Kent, we think there are two key things that are important when considering the cost of servicing. Firstly, not every service offers the same thing. You need to compare and consider the variables. And secondly, not all mechanics are equal. Some have years of experience or specialist knowledge which, especially in the case of prestige cars, can make all the difference when ensuring the quality of service.
