After debating a lot over the latest brands of cars and comparing their features and USPs, you have finally zeroed in on the pre-owned car perfectly suited to your needs. But once it rolls into your parking lot, and the initial excitement and celebrations are over, there are a lot of things you need to think about and plan.Especially if you want to enjoy your car for a long time to come. By buying a pre-owned car, you have already taken a wise decision. Now start sorting out the rest.
Transfer of Ownership
True, the car you bought is already registered. But you need to transfer the ownership into your name. You need to get the transfer forms signed by the previous owner and submit it at the RTO. If your RTO is different from the original RTO, you also need an NOC from the previous RTO to proceed.
No one wants to drive a car without adequate insurance. So once the registration is transferred in your name, transfer the insurance in your name. Remember that the No-Claim-Bonus (NCB) of the previous owner does not carry forward to you, it stays with the previous owner. If you already have an NCB from your previous insurance, inform the insurer so it is carried forward to your new car.
Inspection and tuning
You would have done a detailed inspection before buying the car. Still, it’s a good practice to get the car serviced when you buy it. This will ensure the car is in good running condition. Do not forgot to get the tires, wipers and battery checked. The car might need a few small fixes before it’s ready to hit the roads, so be prepared for that. It is advisable to get the car washed and cleaned thoroughly before you start driving it.
Understand your car
Each car is different. So irrespective of whether you have driven a similar car in the past or not, read the ownership manual in detail before you start driving. Take it to a garage to understand aspects you do not know about. This might turn out to be your savior in a crisis, so do not miss out this step.
