No matter how much affection we develop for our high school hand-me-down or skateboard, at some point it’s time to move on. So, if you’re on the market for your first set of new wheels, you’ll want to try Moov. There are so many factors to take into consideration before making a decision, and Moov has been designed to find a vehicle that is in line with your budget, but also ensures that your new car suits your lifestyle and personality. Read this blog for all the advice you need before taking that first step. The first thing you need to know, being a good first-time car buyer isn’t easy, but if it’s worth doing, and if anything, it’s worth doing well.


Do your research


Currently, there is an amazing amount of information and perspective on new cars and their late-model alternatives on the internet. So get your phone in hand and start looking at all the criteria that may impact your decision. This includes overall cost, fuel consumption, safety, space, and performance.  Once you’ve digested it all, balance it with your gut instincts or chat to someone you trust – Moov team ??. It’s also a good idea to be proactive; if you see someone with a car that you are considering, stop to ask them about their overall experience of the car.



So you’ve found the car you want, you’ve assessed your finances, now you need to make sure you’ve got all the right documents in order to make the process of getting the car on the road as smooth as possible. You’ll need to provide the dealer/dealership with a valid driver’s licence, your latest payslip and three month’s bank statements.


Choose a good dealer

Again, this comes down to research and with today’s technology, you can do all that research in the palm of your hands. Make use of the resources available to you and learn more about the dealerships that have the car you want. A reputable brand is advisable as these dealerships have to meet rigid guidelines to ensure you, the customer, get the correct service and deal that suits you. Consumer review aggregators can also be insightful – check out TrustPilot, Google Review and Peerview, for example. With Moov, choosing the right dealer is taken care of, with more than 300 reputable dealers supporting Moov, you can rest assured that any match you get will be from a reputable dealer.


Enjoy the process

Buying your first car is a blend of excitement and nervousness. This is a big first step and you should enjoy every minute of the effort you put into finding the car that will drive you around for – hopefully – many years. Fortunately, you can take all the guesswork out of doing your research, choosing the right car for your budget and finding a good dealer with Moov. We’ll help you find the right car for your needs, tell you the total cost of ownership and assist you through the entire purchase process!
