Choosing a courtesy car might seem overwhelming at first and many people don’t know where to begin. The selection can feel overwhelming, especially if it’s been a long time since you’ve had to choose a car. Here are a few things to consider:
1. Comfort or change?
Lots of people may be tempted to go for the vehicle most like the one they’ve lost. This can make a lot of sense, after all, it’s something you’re used to driving and it could help you get back on your feet faster. On the other hand, some drivers could feel nervous getting behind the wheel of a car that resembles the one they had an accident in. Don’t be afraid to go for something a bit different if it puts your mind at rest.
2. Considering an upgrade?
If you’ve been thinking about buying a new car anyway, this could be the perfect chance to try out the style of car you’ve had your eye on. You can use it in your daily life and find out whether the boot really is as big as you thought and whether the sunroof is something you need.
3. Day to day or road trip worthy?
Think about what plans you have for the coming weeks. Are you just commuting to and from work or do you have something special planned? If you’re going on holiday to the other side of the country or moving house, choose your replacement vehicle accordingly. Whether you want more seats to accommodate a growing family, more leg room, or seats you can fold down, you can make sure your courtesy car meets your upcoming needs.
It’s worth considering whether you do really need a courtesy car, or whether you could wait for an accident replacement car. Depending on when you expect to receive your vehicle, you could jump in with coworkers or put up with public transport for the time being. If this sounds like too much hassle, then a courtesy car could be the answer for you.
