Want to Emulate “Wheeler Dealers” & Buy a Supercar? Read on!

As regular viewers will know, buying cheap and trading up is a common trend on the hit television series “Wheeler Dealers.” The presenters show you how to start with an affordable car and wheel and deal your way through a series of sales to end up with a supercar that you wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. What could be better for the car enthusiasts amongst you?

If this sounds like something you fancy getting involved with, where do you start? Well thankfully help is at hand with a few helpful hints to set you on your way to supercar heaven.

Start with a Car Loan

If you can’t afford to buy the initial car, start with a car loan. Getting a car loan is a simple way to develop equity, and get started on your path towards getting the supercar of your dreams. When shopping for a loan, make sure to compare the various car loan rates and read the fine print that goes with it so you don’t fall foul of any small print hitches. Take out just enough to pay for the initial car, and then put the necessary money into fixing the car up and making it ready for sale onto its next owner.

Make it a Hobby

Aim to pay off your first loan after you sell your first car, and treat your car search as a hobby. Most of us would love to have a hobby that allows us to continually upgrade our driving conditions, and the search for a car can be an adventure in itself. Cars are often much cheaper abroad, and can be shipped home for only a few hundred dollars in many cases, so this is certainly something to look into. Start by searching the local car agency websites online, and purchase a car with low mileage and a good history. Aim for rural areas if at all possible to avoid large city price tags. For example, if you search for a car in Japan, avoid the big cities where the cars are going to get swiped up as soon as a deal is made. Go with a small dealer in a lesser known prefecture, like Yamaguchi. Often, you can get a car for less than £750, which you can easily sell and use the money to get an even better vehicle, in your aim to reach that supercar dream.

Look for Expats

One of the biggest hassles for expats is trying to secure a vehicle in a country that isn’t their own, simply because of language difficulties, law differences, and not really knowing what the general way of going about this business is. If they speak English, and you have a vehicle you can sell outright to them, an expat is typically willing to pay more simply because you speak their language. Do your research and pay someone that speaks the language to help you land your deal, and then watch as your car goes from a junkyard dive to the supercar of your dreams.

Often, dealers in foreign countries are less concerned about following strict rules and will sell you a vehicle for export with minimal fuss and outstanding savings, which is certainly the order of the day when you’re trying to reach that supercar dream on a budget. Where do you find expats? Look for them in institutions that teach English, high-tech fields which require advanced degrees, and rural areas with limited transportation. You only need one expat to help you fund your next purchase on the road to your own personal supercar.

As you can see, being your own Wheeler Dealer isn’t as hard as you might think!
