Easy ways to sell a car

It’s got legs! 😱

These days some motorists choose to lease their car rather than buy it.

So today we thought we’d look at the pros and cons  of each. So if you are thinking of getting a new car, but you’re not sure whether leasing or buying suits you best.. perhaps our guide can steer you in the right direction.

Keeping the down payment as low as possible – lease if you want to pay as little as possible when it comes to paying upfront.

But if you buy, you could pay more upfront and reduce your monthly payments.

To be able to lease a vehicle you need to have good credit. If your credit history is lousy then buying is the best option.

Leasing could be great if you don’t have many monthly outgoings like a hefty mortgage and bills.

But if you’re on a tight old budget and have a family then buying a motor is probably best for you.

If you’re going to drive long distances be aware that you may have to shell out extra on a leased vehicle if you go over a certain mileage threshold.


If you have bought a car, you can drive as much as you like, bear in mind you’re adding miles to the clock, however. You might be thinking, “Easy ways to sell a car”.

Leasing gives you the option to claim your payments as a business expense.

Buying not so much.

If you’re likely to replace your car every two to three years leasing may suit you.

Alternatively, you may like to get as much out of your bought car as possible.

And if you do, then The Scrappers can help with any replacement parts along the way, keeping you on the road for less.
