Having A Baby And Buying A Car - All Part Of The Nesting Period

For many of us, buying a car isn’t that big a priority. After all it’s easy to get the bus to work, take a walk to a bar or restaurant, or just hire something for the weekend.

But all of this changes when you have children. They can’t walk to the shops or keep themselves warm in the rain. What if they need to get to the doctor or to a hospital urgently? Perhaps more obviously, what about the actual birth itself and how transport for that is organised?
When all these points come together it doesn’t take a genius to see that getting hold of your own vehicle is clearly going to be the way to go.

However it is not that simple. Having a child is among the most expensive things you will ever do. So it’s not the greatest idea to spend a fortune on a brand spanking motor, when you will find there is no money left in your pocket from all the costs associated with caring for a newborn child.

As long as you can be sure on its reliability, a used car can be an appealing option for parents awaiting a baby. The criteria are simple too. It should be affordable, reliable, comfortable and safe. That is it.

There is literally no point in thinking about performance or looks, as arguably if you plan to be zipping around cities with a child in the back then you oughtn’t to be behind the wheel anyway. The care just needs to provide for you and your new family in a safe, sensible and cash conscious way.

Used markets are great for this kind of thing. Beyond the fact they offer vast savings over the new market for virtually identical vehicles, they are also full of offers on finance and intelligent ways to spread cost, which could be right up your street given the price implications of your new family.

Check out the various options with Hertz Rent2Buy and you can save even more, by getting the rental period to trial a car free against the purchase price.
