Are you a Holland, MI, resident looking for a used vehicle? Do you have mechanical know-how or want to learn? Then a fixer-upper car may be the perfect option.

Reasons To Buy a Fixer-Upper Car

So, why buy a fixer-upper car instead of choosing a reconditioned used vehicle? There are a few reasons.

Great Resale Value

Just like fix and flip property investors renovate a home to increase its value, you can boost your vehicle's resale price by giving it an upgrade. If you don't plan to have the car long, this is the perfect opportunity to recondition the vehicle, resell it and make a profit.

Amazing Discounts

Do you have a limited budget? Then you should consider a fixer-upper car.

These vehicles are drastically discounted, as many customers want a car that's ready to drive, with no surprises under the hood. If you can fix up the vehicle yourself or know someone who can do so affordably, you can save a lot of money going wholesale.

Ultimate Customization

When you work on your own car, you can make all the upgrades you want -- even unconventional ones. Buying wholesale also makes your dollar go further, so you can buy makes and models that would otherwise be out of your budget.

Tips For Buying a Fixer-Upper Vehicle

Of course, buying a wholesale used car isn't the same as regular vehicle shopping. When you purchase a reconditioned truck, you know that it'll run well. However, dealerships typically don't work on fixer-uppers, so there may be many things wrong with them. Before you hand over any cash, there are a few things you need to think about.

Get an Inspection

It's always a good idea to have a mechanic take a look under the hood of a fixer-upper. You can bring an expert to our Holland, MI, dealership to inspect the vehicle. That way, you can get a list of what needs fixing before you buy. Understanding what needs repair will help you determine the total cost of the car.

Think About Parts

Since you'll likely need to replace a few parts, you want to choose a fixer-upper with common, affordable components. Otherwise, you could end up spending the money you saved on the car's purchase.

Learn About the Car's History

Major accidents can significantly impact a car's reliability, as can big repairs such as an engine replacement. Try to learn as much about the vehicle's history as possible to know what kind of problems you can expect in the future.
