Purchasing a Used Vehicle Versus Leasing A New Vehicle: The Break Down

In my previous blog, I briefly discussed the pros and cons of buying a used car versus leasing a new car. In this blog, I will provide an example of how much purchasing a used vehicle will cost you over a 24 month span and how much leasing a 2013 car will cost you over a 24 month span.

Let’s say, for example, that you have the choice of purchasing a 2005 Nissan Altima or a 2013 Nissan Sentra. The 2005 Nissan Altima is going to cost you $4,500 out of pocket plus $150/month for liability insurance. The 2013 Nissan Sentra, on the other hand, is going to cost you $2,000 down plus $400+/month for the car note and insurance. When you think about it, $400/ month is pretty affordable for a brand new car. You wont have to worry about mechanical problems, and if anything happens to the vehicle, you are fully insured for repairs. The Altima will probably last you up to five years before it’s time to junk it, so you’ll get your $4,500 worth out of the vehicle. It’s a simple car–not too shabby to get you from point A to point B. The Sentra is a brand new, perfect, beautiful car. If you are into looking flashy and desire to drive a brand new vehicle, leasing the 2013 Sentra would be the better choice opposed to buying the 2005 Altima. Depending on your budget and desires, leasing vesus buying a used vehicle will appeal differently.

Below is a break down of how much a 2005 Nissan Altima will cost you with a one time payment of $4,500 and a monthly insurance note for $150/month and how much a 2013 Nissan Sentra will cost you with a down payment of $2,000 and an insurance note of $230/month and a car note for $170 per month on a 24 month lease. The 2005 Altima will cost $8,100 at the end of 24 months, and the 2013 Sentra will cost $11,600 after 24 months.

’05 Altima                 ’13 Sentra

Insurance (24 mons):        $3,600                        $5,520
Car note (24 moons):        $0                              $4,080

Total:                                                                                                                       $8,100                        $11,600

As mentioned in my previous blog, if you are interested in purchasing a used vehicle, you may want to contact junk cars for cash companies. Often, these companies will pick up supposed junk cars that are not necessarily junk and will sell them as used vehicles. One example of a junk car for cash company is Junkyard Direct. You can contact this company by calling 866-516-8222 or by visiting the website www.junkyarddirect.com. If you are interested in leasing a vehicle you can contact JYD Auto Leasing and Sales at 718-641-1003 or by visiting www.jydautoleasing.com.

New Cars Versus Used Cars: Pros and Cons

Having a used vehicle has its pros and cons. First of all, the pro of having any vehicle at all is that it’s a convenient means of transportation. Hopping into your very own vehicle is a lot more appealing than having to wait for a bus or a train or having to pay for over-priced cabs back and forth. Another pro of having a used car (compared to leasing or financing a vehicle) is that a used car is a lot more affordable. Depending on your price budget and preference, you can purchase a suitable used vehicle for $3,000-$5,000. When you purchase a used vehicle, you pay one price up front, thereby eliminating monthly payments. Also, when purchasing a used vehicle you have the option to either get liability insurance or full coverage insurance. Most people with used vehicles choose liability insurance because it is a lot more affordable than full coverage insurance. If, however, you get into an accident with liability insurance, the insurance will not pay to fix your car or give the funds to purchase a new car–this is one con. Another con is that with used cars, unlike new cars, mechanical problems usually arise. Perhaps the battery will die or perhaps the transmission will act up. These are some problems that you will not face with a new car.

Leasing or financing a new car also has it’s pros and cons. One pro is that you will be driving a perfect, brand new, 2013 vehicle. When you purchase a new car, you will not have to worry about mechanical problems because the car is brand new. Also, if you get into an accident with a new car, your insurance will pay for the damages. If the damages are not repairable, the insurance company will provide funds to purchase a new vehicle. Now, as good as this sounds, it is important to keep in mind that you are paying extra for full coverage insurance every month.

If you are interested in purchasing a used vehicle, you may want to contact sell junk car companies. Often, these companies will pick up supposed junk cars that are not necessarily junk and will sell them as used vehicles. One example of a sell junk car company is Junkyard Direct.

Problems Towers Face

When working for a junk my car company, towers face multiple problems during their work day. One problem that towers face is the fact that they are not allowed to drive on any road that they want to drive on. Towers are prohibited from driving on certain highways where commercial vehicles are prohibited. This causes some inconveniences, as you could imagine, because towers have to find alternate routes to get to their destination.

Another problem that towers face during their work day is that they cannot fit in underground garages and/or parking lots. This is mainly a problem caused by the car seller or the junk my car company’s operator. It is the operator’s responsibility to ask where the vehicle is parked and to make sure that it is easily accessible for a tow driver to tow it away. Sometimes. Though, the operator does in fact ask these questions but the car seller is either not honest or simply does not realize that the vehicle is not easily accessible. So what happens is that the tow driver arrives to the scene where the vehicle is located only to find out that his truck cannot fit into the garage/parking lot, thereby wasting the towers time and the carsellers time.

Being prohibited from driving on certain roads and not being able to fit in garages and parking lots are not the only problems that tow drivers face. Tow drivers also face harassment from police officers. Tow trucks are often pulled over so that police officers can make sure that the company that the tow driver is working for is legit and licensed. This is also an inconvenience because, as we all know, time is money, and pulling a tow driver over is going to cause him to be late to his pickup and every pickup thereafter for that day; it messes up the dispatcher’s schedule for that day as well. Not only does it inconvenience the tow driver and dispatcher, but it also inconveniences the car seller, making him more likely to choose another company to pick up his vehicle.

Other problems that junk my car towers face are harsh weather conditions. These include frigid, windy winters as well as hot, humid summers. Towers have to work outside of the vehicle to hook up the vehicle to their tow truck, so they are exposed to these harsh weather conditions. A tow driver’s job is not as simple as some people may think, after all.
