What to do before buying a pre-owned car

Buying a pre-owned car doesn’t need to be a complicated process.

This was made very clear to the Neue team who recently dropped by to meet the friendly folks over at Honey Carsmart, a well established pre-owned car dealership that has been in the Brunei market since 1983.

A cheerful 55-year-old Bruneian lady by the name of ‘Kak’ Noorjah Bte Shamsudin was the first to greet us at the Honey Carsmart’s car yard at No 635 in Kampong Bunut, Jalan Tutong.

For the last 18 years, ‘Kak’ has been helping many families and expatriates in Brunei find their quality pre-owned cars.

According to ‘Kak’, at Honey Carsmart everyone here works as a family with one common aim –“Customers always come first!”

That said, the friendly folks over at Honey Carsmart want all their customers to make informed decisions when buying pre-owned cars.

(Be sure to watch the video at the top of the page for some tips!)So what are the advantages of getting a pre-owned car?

  • Saves you money

Pre-owned cars tend to be cheaper than getting a brand new one. You will be able to pay off a pre-owned car much faster, saving you financing fees.

Furthermore, depreciation on a quality used car that is properly maintained would often be slower than a brand new one. 

Given that the original owner of the pre-owned car took the biggest hit in the depreciation, you will be paying a much lower insurance premium than what you would have to pay for a brand new car.

That’s more money saved for you to help you reach your financial goals in life.

  • Variety

Pre-owned cars give you the chance to buy a model that may have been discontinued or that has features no longer available in the newer models.

Having the ability to choose from multiple models from different years can widen your choices and help you find the car that is just right for you.

Oh! And you can also rest easy knowing that Honey Carsmart has a well-equipped workshop, where all vehicles undergo a  stringent check by qualified mechanics prior to delivery.

Honey CarSmart’s workshop was awarded the Class ‘B’ Certification from the Land Transport Department in 2012 for recognition of approved facilities and safety regulation

  • Customisation

Whenever you own a pre-owned car, it’s easier to add extra features that will make it truly yours.

For example, you may be able to add fancy new rims without having to pay for the dealership add-ons.

This is a great way to spend the money you saved when buying a pre-owned car.

  • Do it for the environment

Are you trying your best to stay as environmentally-friendly as possible when purchasing a car?

Well, you’re in luck as one way to reduce your carbon footprint is to keep the car you have as long as you can.

However, if your current car is on its last legs, the best thing to do is to buy a pre-owned car.

Did you know that a quarter of the carbon dioxide a vehicle produces during its life-cycle happens during manufacturing and initial shipment?

So be good to Mother Earth and get a pre-owned car instead.
