Wheels and Suspension

The wheels of a car are important for its looks and driving comfort, however, it are the parts behind the wheels that you should check carefully. Here you find the suspension, consisting out of couplings, shock absorbers and springs. You have to do a thorough visual check of these parts, especially when are buying a car without warranty or at least a fresh MOT.

VAT qualifying

Shopping for a used car, the terms Non VAT qualifying and Gross VAT qualifying will sooner or later show up. These terms are important for company cars; buying a car privately, it is of no importance.


You can use the PreOwnedCarAdvice Checklist during the purchase of a used car. Follow the checklist to use all the knowledge of our handbook in practice.

Purchase contract

When you are finalising your purchase, a contract will have to be drawn up. The contents of this contract will largely depend on the salesman, providing that you are not interfering with it yourself. It is important that you do not sign a contract without knowing exactly what is in it. So, make sure that all the promises are written down: e.g. when the car is delivered with a fresh MOT, make sure it is written down in the contract.
