Bought a used car – that’s how I roll

Here’s How I Roll

I’m known among my friends as the guy who can always find the best deal when looking at all the used cars Toronto has to offer. Everyone is just blown away because I have now bought 3 used cars that run great, last longer than they’re expected to, and don’t cost a fortune.

How do I do it? It’s pretty simple: I take my time.

Yeah, that’s it. There’s no secret. I know what I want, what I don’t, and what I’m willing to bend on. Then, I spend a lot of time researching. I don’t really sit down and think, “Okay, now it’s time to research used cars for a few hours.” I’m not that formal about it. I have an app on my phone that I use to find what might be good buys. Then, I spend some time looking at those makes and models to find out if there are any recalls or problems that keep coming up.

Once I have a good idea of what I want and have narrowed it down to 2 or 3 different cars, I usually start looking around at the dealerships. Sometimes, I drag this out for weeks, popping in after work one day just to show them I’m interested but not too interested. I find my dealerships on by the way.

Eventually, I get a little more serious and go on a test drive with the few that I’ve narrowed it down to. Then I wait a few days and think it over. Once I decide, I’m pretty much done making the dealerships sweat. I go right in and am ready to close the deal. It’s worked for me, I’ve had a lot of good luck and really haven’t felt taken advantage of.

You might be wondering why I need 3 used cars. Well, one is a truck I use for work. That was the first used car I bought, actually, because I didn’t want the new car that I had at the time to get all dirty with work stuff. That car ended up needing the transmission replaced and I was like, uh, nope. So I sold it for parts and bought my second used car. Then I decided I wanted something bigger so I could take both of my dogs out with me so I bought a used SUV.

I love my used cars. The whole process, actually. All you have to do is put in a little time and you’ll come out a winner.

I do the same thing for car insurance. Right after buying a car I go online and search for cheap auto insurance quotes. I generally look for very cheap car insurance no deposit required; since it has all the coverage I need for the best price.

Anyway like always you’ll find the best deals online, especially if you search around a little. I managed to get a great deal here:

Very Cheap Car Insurance No Deposit and Making It on My Own

Very Cheap Car Insurance No Deposit

I was completely shocked when my boyfriend left although, looking back, I shouldn’t have been. Things has never been great and they’d gotten much worse since we had our daughter. Babies are hard and can break a relationship that isn’t all the great to begin with. He took off one day when I was at work and the baby was with my mom. Just left. Vanished. Didn’t pick me up from work, just took the car, his clothes, and that was that.

I was young and underemployed and had no idea what to do. My daughter and I moved back in with my parents and they offered to help with babysitting as much as they could so I could try to get a better job. The first thing I had to do was buy a car. I found one that was safe and affordable and was pretty excited until I remember that I had to find cheap auto insurance, too.

Finding cheap auto insurance

I looked for very cheap car insurance no deposit and was shocked when I actually found it. I found it here by the way:

This might sound silly, but when I drove my car home and knew I’d gotten a great deal on it and on the insurance, it felt like I really could turn things around. And I did. I found a better job, saved up a lot of money. It’s funny how when you don’t have to pay rent, you can really sock the money away.

It took about a year but I eventually had enough to put a down payment on a house. It was close enough to my parents that they would easily be able to help me with my daughter but far enough away that I felt I had some independence. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it. I felt so good when we moved in and I finally had a home that was mine.

The very first thing to go right for me after everything happened was buying my car and getting cheap car insurance no deposit. I thought about it all the time, like, I did that at a point in my life when I wasn’t sure I could do anything. It made me feel like I could handle anything if I took it day by day and worked out one thing at a time. And that’s exactly what I did. Step by step, I build us a new, amazing life. A better one.

Who has the cheapest car insurance?

My first blog post and it’s not about restaurants, what a shocker!

I thought it would be interesting to write about something I’m going through right now.

As you probably know I’m lucky to live in New Jersey ( Not sarcasm!). We have a lot of restaurants unfortunately we also have a lot of car accidents, and because of this our insurance premiums are though the roof!

Every few years I compare insurance companies and switch if I can get a better deal. Well now’s that time where I shop around and compare companies. I’ve already found a few decent ones. I don’t go on the big company sites to compare insurance. I use aggreators like: to find and compare companies.

What surprise is me that of everyone I know, only two other people do this. Most of my friends and family manually apply to 2-3 companies.

I think that’s crazy

  1. It takes way to long
  2. You’re only comparing 2-3 companies

Here’s a tip to everyone reading this. Compare, compare and compare some more!

The more insurance companies you compare the better deals you’ll find. The site above has a great guide on this: who has the cheapest car insurance. Here’s the answer: No one!

I’ve changed 6 insurance companies the past 13 years. Most people don’t change insurance companies unless something catastrophic happens with their current company. The best way to get cheap auto insurance is to compare car insurance companies people.

I know it can be annoying, but the savings are worth it. Right now I’m saving an extra $40, thats enough for me to go to a decent restaurant and even have a few drinks :). And that’s a $40 saving with full coverage auto insurance to boot!~

What do you guys do to save some extra money for your restaurant trips? ( other than just working more!)
