It is a cliché but nevertheless very true that after your house the next biggest purchase you are likely to make is your motor vehicle. If you never move house and change your car every three years, who knows it could be even bigger.
Let’s face it; it is an enormous pleasure to drive away in a brand new car but (and it’s sometimes a very big but) it can be an expensive pleasure. It is an accepted fact that as soon as a new car is sold it loses a percentage of its value straight away. Of course that percentage varies from model to model but one thing is for certain it will be substantial.
A cars residual value or the depreciation the car will suffer over the time you own it is not something that will bother you until it’s time to sell or part-exchange and we will take you through researching what the future value of your car is likely to be so you can make a fully informed purchase.
