It's the middle of the Summer and everyone is in the midst of winding down as before we know it we will have school back in session and cooler weather will be upon us and so of us might be looking at updating our vehicle to ensure we are ready for the upcoming colder weather.

For my family this year all 4 of our kids will be in school with our oldest who is in college about to get his license along with myself! (yup only took more than 20 yrs! ha) We have been thinking perhaps it's time to do get another vehicle to make things a bit easier around here. Our youngest will start preschool so she will have to have someone take her back and forth to school, so as you can see it's more then likely another vehicle will be needed.

Tip #1 :

  The first thing I've learned about this process is you need to research! It can get totally overwhelming, to say the least. An amazing place to start is going to Cars.com where you are able to see what is available in what you are looking for. Make sure you are purchasing something that is will accommodate the needs you have for the vehicle.

Tip #2

Set a budget that you can afford. Make sure you take into account not only how much you can spend in a car but the monthly maintenance and any unexpected expenses that may come about when owning a car. Also make sure to add the fees that will come from putting the insurance on the car and how much will it be with the different kind of insurances you might need. Depending on what you use your car you may actually need more or less coverage and that also should be calculated into your budget

Tip #3

Take your time. I know that we might have thought we did our research, know our budget and found the car we want but it's important to take your time. Make sure you test drive the car as well. Check out if it will realy fit the needs you will be using it for. If possible take it to get it checked out if it's a used car that you are purchasing and ask for the  history of the car and how many owners it had.
You can see a pretty car on the outside but until you have tested it and inspected the vehicle you shouldn't purchase it.

I hope these tips have helped you when it's time to purchase a vehicle and eases the process for you so it's not only a bit easier but enjoyable as well.
