TO BUY OR NOT TO BUY

THE question of transport has now come to such a state that a motor car of some sort is practically a necessity. Moreover to those of our readers who have just returned from serving abroad, for a few months leave, the one thing important is to find a means of getting round to see the greatest number of old friends and familiar places with the least possible waste of time.

At first thought the answer is obvious—buy a car. On second thoughts the question is, how can 0.1e afford to buy a car for a few months and risk a heavy loss on re-sale, and it is to those that a scheme that has been brought to our notice should be of the greatest value. The scheme is briefly this. The firm of Auto-Auctions, Ltd., which is managed incidentally by ex-officers, will undertake to buy a car back again from the purchaser for a sum decided on when the car is bought. Thus at the end of the agreed time the car is handed over and the

cost is confined to the depreciation which, from the terms we have seen, is by no means as heavy as the usual amount in selling a car in the open market. This method is of course far cheaper than hiring a car for the period, and there are many attendant advantages such as the fact that the firm will undertake that if the car fetches more than its agreed repurchase price when offered again for re-sale, the previous owner receives the benefit thereof, and we know of several cases where this has happened to the pleasant surprise of the first client.

The idea strikes us as a particularly good one from the point of view of overseas readers, and though it is by no means new, having been in operation for over eight years, it deserves to be more widely known. Anyone who cares to write to Auto-Auctions Corner, Burlington Gardens, Bond Street, W.1., will receive full particulars of the scheme in the form of an attractive little book.
