Naturally, the purchase should be focused on the condition of the body, because, as you know, it is the most expensive part of the car and an error in assessing its condition when buying a car can in the near future greatly darken your joy of owning your own car.
Often motorists, having bought another car, say: And what’s wrong with the fact that the car was once crushed a little, but then it was done – better than a new one? The most innocuous troubles that a broken car is capable of delivering are the inability to adjust the wheel alignment angles due to a violation of the body geometry. Since it is not possible to check the geometry of the body when inspecting a car (special equipment is required), one council can be never buy broken cars. In case of the purchase of the used cars Kent this is important.
The Noticeable Parts
When buying, you may well not notice the fact that the car, for example, suffers by moving it to the right. The caring salesman gave the right front wheel a chance beforehand, and lowered the left slightly, and now the car keeps the course perfectly! Until the moment you pump up the wheels. The windshield, which cracks a month after the next replacement for no apparent reason, is also not the biggest nuisance delivered by a curved body.
The Roles for the Sellers Now
The seller can solemnly assure you that after hitting the body repair was performed with the highest quality, and the car became better new. So it all depends on the qualifications of the tinsmith. Even if we assume that everything is really done according to the mind and the geometry of the restored car is normal, another problem arises. Body parts are interconnected mainly by welding.
The General Ideas
Without going into technical details, we note that the technology of this process in the conditions of car service, to put it mildly, is very different from that on the factory conveyor. In practice, this is manifested in the fact that, despite all the measures taken, the corrosion rate for repair welded joints is on average five times higher than that of the factory-made ones. Simply put, a broken car will rot much faster. You may argue that you are not going to ride it all your life, but expect to sell it in a year. But, firstly, after a year, the appearance of corrosion can greatly affect the selling price, and secondly, for example, an extension bracket in six months can suddenly come off together with a newly welded repair plate.
We will not consider the first option, since it does not imply any choice, but it is often the best. Of the remaining, at first glance, it is preferable to market a lot of cars at once, to place a purchase on the spot, and strong competition contributes to better sellers ’compliance. But let’s look at the problem from the other side from the point of view of the seller.
