Im potentially going to be spending nearly £9k on a 172 soon privately. Ive never bought privately before so I have some real obvious questions that I probably should really know the answers to...but dont! Any help would be appreciated.
1. If Im travelling a long way how does these things usually work if Im happy with it and want to buy? Im assuming its (seller dependant of course) usual to just bring it on home the same day.
2. I recently read that its strongly advised not to pay by cash. But it didnt say how you should actually pay. Any suggestions?
3. The main one really, insurance. Firstly how do things work with test driving? The best advice Ive been given is dont crash! Secondly is bringing it home. My other half would be driving up and back in her car so thats fine, but Im guessing Im not insured to bring the car home. I wouldnt be the registered owner at that point as the documents wouldnt have gone through the DVLA, but I would be the owner.
Probably obvious stuff but anything to give me some confidence would be useful. 99% sure I will be buying from a fellow ClioSporter which makes me a bit happier.
