Nowadays there is a huge demand of pre-owned Hyundai cars in India. Despite this, purchasing a used car is still considered as a major investment for most Indians. In order to have an assurance that the car bought is in its best condition, you need to choose the right Hyundai dealer in Noida and also a keep a few things in mind.
Here’s taking a look at them.
1. Inspection of car-related papers in detail
Just like a new car, a second hand car should have proper registration and insurance papers. This paperwork should be thoroughly inspected as it forms the basis of assurance about genuineness of a car, claims that can be received on accident by the insurance company, and more.
If possible, it would be advisable to get the second hand car inspected by an expert mechanic who can check certain parts such as breaks, filters, tires and advise about its overall performance.
2. Get car ownership transferred to your name
Once you buy a second hand car, get its ownership in your name by following the RTO process existing in your jurisdiction. If the seller is in different jurisdiction than yours, then firstly NOC certificate from seller’s RTO jurisdiction will be required and then normal process should be followed.
Once you get the car registered in your name, follow finance company’s process if the car was bought through finance by previous owner, and check for valid PUC certificate and Bi-fuel certificate if LPG/CNG was fitted.
3. Transfer insurance in your name
Transfer of insurance policy in your name is as important as transferring the car’s registration in your name; otherwise your claim would turn out to be null and void. Contact the respective insurance agency or broker who can explain you this process and ask for necessary documents.
In certain cases, the previous owner might not have taken an insurance policy. So, you can buy the same from company of your choice. Not having a prior policy can also help in price negotiation from the seller.
4. No Claim Bonus Transfer (NCB)
As the NCB is given to the insured instead of the insured vehicle, it can’t be transferred to your name like registration certificate and insurance policy. You will need to pay difference on NCB balance of policy period. Original owner can use NCB when he buys a new vehicle.
If you had purchased car in past, NCB discount applies in your case, which is valid for 3 years from last policy’s expiry date. From an NCB point of view, a new insurance policy is advisable.
5. Get your car fixed and clean before first ride
Before the first ride, check and fix certain things in your car such as the interior and exterior, fluids and oils, lights, spark plugs, etc. Fixing and cleaning these things will give you perfect ride in your newly purchased vehicle.
Even though you’re buying a pre-owned Hyundai car, it is an investment that you’re making. Keeping these tips in mind, you will be able to make the right choice of cars. But in case you need help, don’t be afraid to reach out to the Hyundai experts who can guide you to a car that is best suited for your needs.
