Buying a car is a big decision, and there are several factors that should be considered before you schedule a test drive. Above all, you need to decide whether it’s the right time to buy a car. To help you make that decision, here are the 3 best times in your life to buy a car. You might be surprised to find that right now could be the perfect time to start looking for your new car!
Welcoming a New Baby
Becoming a parent is one of the most challenging and rewarding experiences in life. A baby brings a whole new set of responsibilities and unexpected challenges that make you live every part of your life a little differently. As a new parent, the last thing you want to deal with is a broken down car. Having a new baby means going fewer places alone, needing to go to the store more often, and being prepared for unexpected trips to the doctor. Getting a reliable vehicle before, or soon after baby is born will provide peace of mind and convenient transportation for your family, giving you the opportunity to enjoy more time with baby and focus on what matters.
Starting A New Job
Searching for a new job can be a long, frustrating process, but as soon as you find one it’s cause to celebrate! Having a new job means regular income, benefits, and a chance to build up your resume. For many companies, the first few months after hire are a probationary period, meaning that extra attention is paid to performance and punctuality. Driving an unreliable vehicle or relying on public transportation to get to work can cause stress that will affect your work, or result in breakdowns or car troubles which will make you late for work. Purchasing a new car will ensure that you get to work on time, and save you the stress of dealing with bus schedules. Plus, your regular income will allow you to make payments on time, helping to build your credit score!
Moving to a New Area
Moving is stressful, costly, and time-consuming, but it’s also an opportunity for a fresh start in a new place, making it an ideal time to buy a new vehicle. Relocating to a new area means that you aren’t yet familiar with public transportation schedules, the safety of the area, or the easiest route to work or the store. Owning an efficient, reliable vehicle will allow you to explore your new town safely and comfortably while measuring the mileage to the places you visit most often. Having a new car when you’ve moved is also helpful for transporting home and lawn supplies from the store so you can transform your new house into a home! Still not sure if you should buy a car?
