Take Over Installments
Travelling means making decisions for flights, hotels and often for cars once you arrive as well. If you are looking for a car but won't need something long enough to warrant leasing it, let alone purchasing, the option to take over instalments may be for you. If you haven't thought about payments on someone else's vehicle consider the reasons it can be beneficial.
Short Time Periods
If you don't need to stay in South Africa for a long period but will be around for more than just a week, this is one of the best options to consider. You can take over the payments on another person's car and give him or her the chance to get out from under some bills. Many times, you'll even get the vehicle cheaper than you would leasing it through a company or renting it. This can give you the opportunity to enjoy the freedom to travel the city while you are abroad. Miles or time won't limit you necessarily and you won't have to go through all the paper work that comes with a purchase.
One of the biggest reasons to consider utilising this option when shopping for a vehicle to get you around is the relatively hassle free way you can begin paying for someone else's car. You won't have to worry about shopping insurance because the person currently paying on the car will already have coverage. All you need to do is simply transfer the coverage over to yourself. In addition, shopping for the car itself can be easier simply because your choices will be from a smaller pool to begin with.
Keep a few things in mind when you take over installments of a car in South Africa. First, make sure to be very clear about the length of time so that the two of you don't miscommunicate right from the start. Make sure to ask about mileage and what would be expected should damage occur. The more you communicate in the beginning the better chance you have of enjoying a good partnership and a car at a fraction of the cost.
