It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. It’s been a while since we spoke, well more like a couple of days. But, it seems like forever! Make sure that you subscribe to the site so that we stay connected. You can email us too kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. We have some information for you, especially if you looking to purchase a car for your teenager.

How To Know When Your Child Is Ready For Their First Car

There’s ultimately going to come a time in every parent’s life when their child reaches the legal driving age and shows an interest in driving, and as much as we’d love to be able to keep them wrapped up in cotton wool and safe from the dangers of the world – and especially the dangers of the road, it’s just not always going to be realistic to make this happen and at some point we have to be able to trust them and understand that they might actually know how to look after themselves and that perhaps that they do know what’s best for them more than we do.

 

Yes, this is tough, but this is just one of the many parenting challenges we’re going to face throughout the years, so we can either bury our heads in the sand and pretend it’s not happening, or we can embrace it and communicate with our kids so that they’re armed with the best support and information to allow them to make the right decision for themselves.

 

Of course, the very first thing they’ll need to have is the legal permission to drive in the form of a permit and later a license. Depending on where you live, the legal driving age will be different and so you’ll have to look into this and then see what the necessary requirements are for learning. You can discuss this with your child and see if they’re ready to learn and if so, then start looking into good schools and instructors in your area. The driving test is typically split into multiple parts that involve theory and practical and will include some kind of written test, which you can find some tips here on to see if they’re able to study this and get them familiar with the testing and overall experience of driving.

 

The next stage once you know that they’re of legal age and are ready to spend time and energy to complete the tests is to actually make sure they’re emotionally ready for the responsibility that comes with being on the road with a car and actually driving, so in this post we’re going to share with you some things to consider when trying to know if your child is ready for their first car or not.

 

They Have Good Judgment:

 

Being able to use good judgment is such an important of driving, but also in being a responsible adult, and often teenagers don’t really have the best sense of judgement. This doesn’t mean they’re not ready to drive, but that they need to understand why having a good sense of judgement is going to be good and helpful for them when driving.

 

They’re Able To Listen And Follow Rules:

 

Let’s be honest, teenagers aren’t typically known to be lovers of rules, and whilst we can’t exactly blame them for this – since we were likely the same way, it’s incredibly important that if they’re planning to get behind the wheel of a car that they, not only understand how important the rules are for their safety and the safety of others, but that they also follow those rules and respect them. If they’re not able to do this and are constantly breaking rules for whatever reason, then they’re possibly not ready for a car just yet.

 

They Act Responsibly And Don’t Bend To Peer Pressure:

 

Another thing that’s likely to be a big problem for younger adults and especially teenagers is dealing with peer pressure. Now, of course not all teenagers will bend to this, but whilst there are different areas of life that peer pressure might be a bit understandable and even tolerable as a part of growing up, driving is not one of those areas due to the extreme dangers. So, if you know that your child is moving in friend circles where he or she is dealing with pressure from friends to act in a certain way or do things to fit in, then you may want to have a conversation with them about this and even lay down some ground rules before letting them get behind the wheel since it’s simply not worth it.

 

They’re Able To Afford The Upkeep:

 

Cars are not the cheapest things on the planet, and even if you’re able and willing to buy them the car and help them with the cost of that, they’re going to have to understand that the costs of running a car don’t just magically get taken care of, and they should be able to take some of the financial responsibility for this.

The Gentlemen’s Curb The ‘Curb Year In Review

It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. First, I want to Thank God for this opportunity. I have been a blogger that models every now and then. I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and to be absolutely honest, I am super humbled. Humility is the catalyst that helps me to push forward. You are only as good as your last post. You shouldn’t stay in the past because time is always moving. There have been many sacrifices and many ups and downs that I have been blessed to overcome. Some struggles I made public and some struggles I made private.

A Lookbook?

However, this lookbook started out as a crazy idea. I stand a man that is 6’1 and 324 pounds. The idea seemed impossible and insane. I would think to myself “it would be dope to have a lookbook for men of size.” I haven’t seen a lookbook for big and tall/plus size men. (To be fair, we have lookbooks with specific brands, but not a book highlight brands for men of size exclusively.)

It’s Isn’t Always About You

Because there are things that are bigger than me, I have to push forward.  As I child, I was always bigger than a lot of my peers. Too many times, I got the “fat” jokes. So, it made me insecure. Insecure about myself, my body and especially my abilities. I felt as I had to be one of the people that pushed for size inclusion so that those behind won’t have to experience what I went through. There are people just like you doing amazing things!
But, we worked through my frustrations to bring you a book that’s the first of this kind.

Celebrate Your Accomplishments

It’s a huge accomplishment and I am extremely happy and privileged to share it with you. The pictures selected are some bold and historic photos that highlight some points of 2018.
This is an accomplishment not only for men of size but the modern man. Let’s continue to break barriers and shatter stereotypes all while being ourselves.
I want to thank all of the WOMEN who have been on the front lines of body advocacy, body positivity movement. Your courageous actions will never go unnoticed and unrecognized. Thank You.

Love Always,
Kavah King

Michael B Jordan for Men’s Health magazine.

The Gentlemen’s Curb

This look is one of my favorite looks from the lookbook. The Gentlemen’s Curb Year In Review: The Official Big & Tall Lookbook.  I mean, to be absolutely honest I love them all, but this particular inspiration is one of my absolute favorites. I know some of yall may ask why? Well, I love the work that Michael B. Jordan. The accomplished actor is a character that I remember from the television series called “The Wire.” But, 2018 was an incredible year for Michael B. Jordan (and many other actors as well.) I loved the actor’s roles in the films “Creed,” and Marvel’s “The Black Panther.”

Michael B Jordan

Michael B Jordan’s shoot for the Men’s Health magazine was the inspiration for the latest look. I felt that the look should have been done from a big & tall lens. I was a little nervous with this, but I am embracing my body. It’s something that I should have done years ago.  The denim shirt is from Society of One  (I love this brand! I feel like it’s a brand not too many of us know about) that could be found at Destination XL. The jeans are from Boohoo Man. Make sure that you check them out. I hope that you are enjoying the lookbook so far. Make sure that you tell us what you think by emailing us at kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. We would love to hear from you. Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

The ‘Curb Year In Review: The Official Big And Tall Lookbook

This look features yet another image inspired by Chadwick Boseman. Chadwick Boseman is an accomplished actor. One of Boseman’s biggest roles was the role of T’challa king of Wakanda, The Black Panther. The film was a huge international and domestic success and tied into another Marvel film The Avengers. (But, you guys knew that already.)

I loved this cover and felt as if the picture spoke to me. The picture ended up being iconic in my mind and iconic I am sure in the eyes of others. Although Wakanda is a fictional place, the ideas of Wakanda resonate throughout the world. It pushes an idea, similar to Ethiopia but that’s a story for another day. Check out the images below:

Making Time For Fitness: How To Work Out With A Busy Lifestyle

After making the decision to get fit, one of the toughest challenges you’re going to face is fitting exercise into your already hectic lifestyle. In a perfect world, we would all have hours to devote to our fitness, but, with work to complete, a family to take care of, and various other pursuits to juggle, the 24 hours we get a day often doesn’t seem like enough. However, as tricky as it can be at times, fitting in a workout isn’t impossible. With that in mind, here are six ways you can do it.

  1. Set An Earlier Alarm

While you shouldn’t miss out on the sleep you need, waking up a little earlier to exercise can be beneficial. By doing so, you get to cross exercise off your to-do list as soon as possible, so you don’t have to worry about it again that day. Research has also shown that working out before breakfast burns more fat than doing so at other times of the day, so try setting an earlier alarm.

 

  1. Work Your Daily Commute

The time you spend getting to work each morning is essentially time wasted. After all, it’s unlikely that you do anything massively productive with these minutes or hours. By walking, running, or cycling to work each day, you can fit in a workout before even reaching the office. Of course, if you live too far away, this may not be possible, in which case, you could go for a walk at lunch.

 

  1. Always Take The Stairs

When offered the choice of taking the stairs or using an elevator, most of us would opt for the latter. After all, it’s the one that requires the least effort. However, if you’re serious about getting fit, then effort is exactly what you need to give. Because of this, you should always take the stairs when possible. Not only does it get your blood pumping, but it’s usually much quicker too.

 

  1. Use Your Down Time

After a tough day, there’s nothing most of us like more than lounging about in front of the television. If you don’t want to give up the time you spend watching your favorite shows, then work out while doing so instead. All you need to do is invest in some home gym equipment, like dumbbells or a Maxi Climber. Storing these by the couch will serve as a reminder to exercise.

 

  1. Stick With Fitness Classes

With so little time to fit in a workout, you don’t want to waste any precious minutes roaming around a gym hunting for a free machine. For this reason, you should consider signing up for a fitness class instead. These tend to last between thirty minutes and an hour and have a qualified instructor guiding your session, which means that you don’t waste any time.

  1. Make It A Date

Dating is something else many of us struggle to do when our lives are already busy. With that in mind, it can help to combine it with your fitness goals. Rather than head for dinner and a movie with your significant other, you could go for a bike ride or a walk instead. This lets you spend some quality time together and keep yourself healthy at the same time.

Fitting exercise into a busy life can be difficult, but, with these tips, it’s far from impossible. Until next time, it’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way.

4 Straightforward Ways For Guys To Look Their Best

In Lifestyle On The 'Curb

The Gentlemen’s Curb

The Gentlemen’s Curb

The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. I hope that all is going well with you all. We have been busy at work and we are happy that you are part of it. If you want to keep in touch with us feel free to email  kavah.king@gentlemenscurb.com. We would love to hear from you. We are back to share some information with you.

4 Straightforward Ways For Guys To Look Their Best

In ancient times, many of the toughest men around were also known for paying a lot of attention to their physical appearance.

The ancient Egyptians routinely wore eyeshadow, plucked their body hair, and practiced other male grooming rituals. The ancient Babylonians are known for having taken immense pride in their beards and would bead and cultivate them until they almost touched the ground. The ancient Vikings would spend a lot of time combing their hair out, acquiring precious metal jewelry, and getting tattooed.

Later in history, cultural norms shifted somewhat, so that paying attention to physical appearance was deemed an “unmanly” trait. More recently, though, many men have begun to take pride in their appearance once again, without desiring to shed the conventional masculine ideas of ruggedness, toughness, and strength.

Plenty of articles, and products have been produced for this purpose, including the following personal presentation guides for men: how to get rid of dark circles and under-eye bags, how to maintain a beard line that perfectly accentuates your jawline, and how to pick a shirt that shows off your physique.

If you’re a guy who’s interested in straightforward ways to look your best, here are some suggestions.

 

The Gentlemen’s Curb

Take Cold Showers On A Semi-Regular Basis

Unless it’s the middle of summer, and you’ve just been spending a good deal of time outside, playing sports, cold showers suck. That’s pretty much all that has to be said on that topic.

 

The only thing is, cold showers have been growing in popularity recently for various reasons. For one, they do not dry out and compromise the health of the skin in the same way that hot showers do. In fact, bathing with cold water seems to be one of the best overall ways of maintaining good skin and hair quality.

 

For another thing, there are some anecdotes and some research out there to suggest that cold water exposure may help to improve mood, make the body more resilient to stress, reduce body fat, and more.

On top of that, many men are now on board the cold shower train, specifically because beginning each day with a cold shower is a test of determination, discipline, and willpower, and helps to develop a certain level of “grit.”

While you should be thoughtful about how you take your call showers – for example, if you take ice cold showers, every day, in the middle of winter, even when you’ve got the early signs of a cold, you can expect to get pretty sick – taking cold showers on a semi-regular basis may do a lot of good for your looks, and your masculine traits.

There’s even the example of the Dutch “Ice Man” Wim Hof, who has performed feats such as climbing up Everest in nothing but a pair of shorts, and who credits regular cold exposure and breathing exercises for his superhuman abilities.

All Black Everything!

Go For Short, High-Intensity Training Sessions

There are as many different ways to train as there are stars in the night sky. Some people opt for a “Grease the Groove” approach, which involves training very regularly, but without ever going to failure, in order to develop neuromuscular connections.

Then again, some people like to train with lighter weights, for as many reps as possible, while other people like to churn out a couple of reps with the heaviest weight they can manage.

If you take the book “Body By Science” to heart, however, there are some real benefits for doing hyper-intense, ultra-slow, one-set training routines, to absolute failure.

According to the authors of the book – one of which is a medical doctor – training in this way helps to stimulate the metabolic apparatus of the body in order to effectively clear waste products, optimise muscle mass, stimulate fat loss, and also optimise hormone levels, simultaneously reducing the risk of repetitive strain injuries that often come with more frequent training.

Of course, you don’t necessarily have to make these kinds of training sessions the entirety of your workout regimen. But, if you want to look your best and be your healthiest, there are some good reasons to think you should squeeze in at least one of these intense training sessions a week.

 

Get Comfortable With Hunger – Try Intermittent Fasting, And Nutrient Timing

Intermittent fasting has taken off as a major trend in the last few years, probably beginning with books such as Ori Hofmekler’s “The Warrior Diet,” which advised people to eat only once per day.

Now, eating only one meal per day is probably not going to be ideal for the majority of people – not least of all because it might mean dramatically undereating, and suffering the very real negative physiological effects of getting too few calories in your diet.

All the same, tons of research has been coming out in the last few years to back up the benefits of occasional fasting. It turns out, for example, that when you fast occasionally, your blood sugar levels improve, your insulin sensitivity improves (which means you’re less likely to develop diabetes), you burn more fat, and you may even have a better hormone profile for building muscle.

Maybe most impressively, though, fasting kickstarts a process known as “autophagy”, where your body breaks down and “recycles” damaged cellular tissue.

Autophagy is thought to play a vital role in a healthy immune system, not to mention also having potential anti-aging benefits.

Skipping breakfast, or going for a full 24-hour period once per week without food – as Brad Pilon recommends in his book “Eat, Stop, Eat” – may do a lot for your appearance, not to mention your health and fitness. It’s also bound to toughen you up a bit, too.

There’s also some evidence that nutrient timing strategies such as John Kiefer’s “Carb Backloading” system, which involves eating all your carbs in the late afternoon and evening after a workout, can have some of the same benefits.

The Gentlemen’s Curb

Stand Up, Move Around, And Be More Physically Active During The Day

Unless you’ve got a physical, blue-collar job, the odds are pretty high that you spend far too much of your day sitting around. The thing is, sedentary living – in other words, being too comfortable, and not moving around enough – is well known to cause all kinds of health problems, to cause you to gain weight, and to prevent you from looking and feeling your best.

In the last few years, there have been plenty of headlines carrying the phrase “sitting is the new smoking.”

The reason for the popularity of this particular headline is that some research seems to show spending too much of your day sitting down causes damage that even a daily gym session can’t compensate for.

The solution? You’ve got to move around more during the day, at regular intervals.

Of course, no one really feels strong, in control, or full of health and vigor, if they spend the better part of every day glued to a chair, lounging around on the sofa, or sprawled out in bed playing games on their phone.

 

By finding ways to move around more during the day, you will feel more in control of your life, and you’re also likely to be plenty healthier. Of course, this also means that you’re likely to look a good deal better.

 

If you work a desk job and can’t avoid spending most of your day in front of a screen, consider looking into solutions such as standing desks. This lets you alternate between working seated and working standing up.

 

Then, also squeeze in regular strolls around the office whenever you can manage it.

 

Of course, during your free time, you should be spending time physically active – working on DIY projects around the home, playing sports outside, gardening, and so on.

How To Keep Your Work Truck Cleaner

When it comes to laboring work such as bricklaying, scaffolding or landscape gardening, you’re obviously going to be getting your hands (and other places) dirty pretty much every day. It’s not like the luxurious job of sitting in a warm office answering phones and pencil-pushing while sipping hot, expensive coffee and not worrying about the outside. You’re going to be messy most days and in need of a wash – and with that, your truck probably will, too. It can be a real pain in the backside taking care of a big vehicle like that, especially if it’s not something you’re practiced at. However, if you leave it too long, things will pile up and the state of it overall with decrease massively – then what are you going to do? How are you going to work? If you’re not exactly a motor vehicle maintenance expert, you don’t have to worry too much as it’s not rocket science. Here are a few ideas to help keep the big machine smoother and fresher.

Empty Yourself

Sounds like an easy and obvious one, right? Yes, it is, but think of how much of a pain it is to even think about when you have just finished work or are on a lunch break – that’s the time to rest! It might be a chore at first, but getting into a routine of emptying stuff out and cleaning the inside and outside could seriously help the thing as well as clear your head.

Get A Professional

If you feel as though you can’t do it by yourself, you could always seek the help of friends, family or work pals to aid you in some capacity. You could also get professionals to clean it all up for you. Much like some do with their cars, you can get the truck valeted. It might be a few bucks, but it could ease your mind if you’re struggling.   

Have It Fitted Out

A way of stopping things from being worse than they can potentially be is to prepare in terms of buying the right equipment. You could look for floor mats, cargo liners, and mud flaps online.

Be More Mindful

We mentioned this before, but we know that sometimes with the graft at work, you’ll have to get yourself a quite messy some days. But there will be other days where you’ll not have that real need to quite get down and dirty. A simple idea is to be that extra bit careful so that you don’t even have to worry about taking anything nasty into the truck.  

Park Sensibly

Finally, think about parking away from the site or away from any potential mess. Obviously, a lot of the time you’re required to park in the vicinity, but for the lighter days, think about keeping the vehicle as far away from any issues as possible!

Something Personalized

A gift is always worth more in sentimental value when there has been a lot of thought put into it, and that is what you are going to get when you purchase something personalized. The recipient will know how much thought you put into this gift, and in some cases, it can make the entire gift better received. If you are stuck for ideas on these kinds of items, you can choose from a variety. Some of the most popular options are custom watches, custom neckties, cufflinks and so on. You can even buy the item and then head to an engraver and have them put something special on it.  Not only does this show that you put a lot of thought and effort to your gift, but it will also hold a special place in the recipient’s heart for years to come.

A Blast From The Past

Have you thought about getting something that reminds you of the person you are buying for? Or perhaps you could do this vice versa? Buying something that holds a significant weight to the relationship that you have with the person is always going to be a winner when it comes to gift giving. It could be something related to the first time you met, your first memory together and so on. There are so many possibilities out there just waiting for you to find them.

You could even go as far as to go back to the first place that you met. Instead of just buying a gift, why not go all the way and book a trip for the two of you? This could be somewhere near home, or somewhere abroad depending on where you were the first time you laid eyes on each other.

Think About His Interests

One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is buying something that you like rather than something you think he likes. You need to be thinking about the things that he loves, be it cars, Disney, TV or anything else. Make sure that you are thinking in terms of what he is going to like, not something that you can tolerate looking at. When you are buying a gift, the entire process needs to be about the recipient, and you should never lose sight of this.

If you are finding it difficult to think of something he likes that you can relate a present to, try asking him if there is anything that he wants. He is bound to either tell you something, or nothing at all. If it is the latter option, try to listen out for what he says over the next couple of days, because you might find some helpful hints hidden here.

Stylish Is Never Wrong

You can never go wrong with something stylish. We know that everyone has their own individual tastes when it comes to clothes, but there is something that you are sure not to fail with: cufflinks. While they are no longer part of the standard ‘uniform’ they are still super stylish and look amazing on a suit. You can buy a range of different ones here ranging from standard shapes to more creative designs such as superhero logos. Depending on what your man likes, you are going to be able to find some cufflinks!

You might be thinking that they aren’t going to need these as they rarely wear suits. But how often they are going to wear them is not the point. When they do wear a suit for either a wedding, an interview or something like this, they are going to put them on and remember when they received them. The finishing touches on any suit, and a perfect gift for any man!

 

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now have a better idea of some great gifts that you can get your man! Take this advice, and you are sure to get a gift that your partner loves.

The Gentlemen’s Curb The ‘Curb Year In Review

It’s The Gentlemen’s Curb a lifestyle blog where fashion meets fitness in a BIG way. First, I want to Thank God for this opportunity. I have been a blogger that models every now and then. I have been blessed with some amazing opportunities and to be absolutely honest, I am super humbled. Humility is the catalyst that helps me to push forward. You are only as good as your last post. You shouldn’t stay in the past because time is always moving. There have been many sacrifices and many ups and downs that I have been blessed to overcome. Some struggles I made public and some struggles I made private.

A Lookbook?

However, this lookbook started out as a crazy idea. I stand a man that is 6’1 and 324 pounds. The idea seemed impossible and insane. I would think to myself “it would be dope to have a lookbook for men of size.” I haven’t seen a lookbook for big and tall/plus size men. (To be fair, we have lookbooks with specific brands, but not a book highlight brands for men of size exclusively.)

It’s Isn’t Always About You

Because there are things that are bigger than me, I have to push forward.  As I child, I was always bigger than a lot of my peers. Too many times, I got the “fat” jokes. So, it made me insecure. Insecure about myself, my body and especially my abilities. I felt as I had to be one of the people that pushed for size inclusion so that those behind won’t have to experience what I went through. There are people just like you doing amazing things!
But, we worked through my frustrations to bring you a book that’s the first of this kind.

Celebrate Your Accomplishments

It’s a huge accomplishment and I am extremely happy and privileged to share it with you. The pictures selected are some bold and historic photos that highlight some points of 2018.
This is an accomplishment not only for men of size but the modern man. Let’s continue to break barriers and shatter stereotypes all while being ourselves.
I want to thank all of the WOMEN who have been on the front lines of body advocacy, body positivity movement. Your courageous actions will never go unnoticed and unrecognized. Thank You.

Love Always,
Kavah King

We made it to week three! I hope that you are enjoying the #bigandtall lookbook. I know some of my readers will tell you that I am not a fan of a blazer. That statement isn’t necessarily true. I think that there is more to big and tall fashion. I want to show a lot more diversity.

Floral Print

It’s rare that we see #menofsize in patterns. In too many instances we are told that certain patterns will make us appear to be larger. It’s time to get rid of stereotypes, especially stereotypes that are forced on us from people who aren’t our size. I decided to break away from the stereotypes. The blazer is from SOS Denim and Eyani Couture. The button-down is from Large Lad Clothing. The pants are from Shaq XLG from JCPenney.

Recreation

This look was inspired by Siya Kolisi. (An awesome South African rugby player. I drew inspiration from the pic, it’s not recreation. (I know that I will get some flack and critiques. So, I had to make it clear. LOL!) I thought how dope would it be to wear a dope floral pattern unapologetically. I thought that it would be awesome to highlight an athlete during #BlackHistoryMonth

Driving Down The Price: How To Cut Costs Buying Your Next Car

No matter which way you look at it, buying a car will always be expensive. In fact, for most people, it’s one of the largest investments they make in their lifetime, often second only to property. For this reason, when it comes time to get behind the wheel or replace your car with something new, it’s only natural to want to save as much money as you can. This isn’t always easy, but don’t be fooled into thinking it’s impossible or not worth the effort. If you want to get the best deal when buying your next car, here are nine things that you can do to drive down the price.

 

  1. Always Do The Research

The very worst thing that you can do when buying a car is arrive at the lot without knowing anything about the vehicle that you want to buy. Without any knowledge of its typical price range, you could end up paying much more than the norm. For this reason, you should first spend some time researching the vehicle so that you know when you’re being offered a fair deal. You should also shop around and leave some dealerships to find out their rock-bottom offers.

 

  1. Pay With Your Cash

Cars aren’t cheap, which is why most buyers choose to take out some sort of loan to cover the expense. Whether this is from the dealership itself or a high street lender, borrowing money to pay for your car will cost you more in the long run. After all, in addition to the price of the vehicle, you’ll also have to pay interest. Because of this, you may want to pay for your car in cash, if possible. If you have to borrow the money, shop around for the very best financing option for you.

 

  1. Look At Used Vehicles

The value of a brand new car depreciates the moment you drive it off the lot and continues to do so quickly for at least a few years. With that in mind, used vehicles may be the best option. Whether you’re shopping for a Chevy, Hyundai, or something completely different, you’ll find that gently used options are much cheaper than buying brand new. You’ll also avoid a huge chunk of depreciation, which means that your car will have a higher resale value later down the line.

 

  1. Speak To A Professional

The biggest concern with used cars is the possibility of wear and tear, maintenance issues, mechanical problems, and other faults. If you don’t know much about vehicles, you could miss these serious problems, leaving you paying much more than you should for a car that’s going to cost you later. To avoid this, you should have potential purchases checked over thoroughly by a mechanic. This will allow you to haggle a better price or walk away if the car is just not worth it.

 

  1. Show Off Your Status

Students, OAPs, and those with military status are often eligible for discounts or cash back on their purchases. Thankfully, this is no different when buying a car. Because of this, you should look at a few different dealerships online to see if any offer better deals for those with your status. If there’s nothing online that you can find, then give a few a call instead. Just remember to bring along proof of your status when you go to buy your new wheels.

 

  1. Haggle Like A Dealer

When you go to buy a car, whether it be new or used, you need to let the salesperson know up front that you won’t be taken for a ride. Do absolutely everything that you can to knock the purchase price down by starting with an outrageous figure and working backward. It can feel incredibly awkward at first, but, if you stick to your guns, it can work out ridiculously well. If you’re not good at haggling, then bring along someone that you trust to do it for you or back you up.

 

  1. Keep Trade-Ins A Secret

Trading in your old car is a great way to knock some money off the cost of your new one. However, you shouldn’t mention your trade-in right away. Instead, hold your cards close to your chest and work to haggle a better deal first. Then, only once the dealer is at the very lowest that they will go, work to get the most for your old car. If you mention your trade-in right away, the salesperson may try to use this information against you and charge you more than usual.

 

  1. Don’t Purchase Any Extras

A new car is a huge purchase, and, if you pay for it with borrowed money, you could be left making repayments for years to come. For this reason, you should avoid doing anything that might drive up the price. Purchasing add-ons and other modifications are one way to do this. While your salesperson may say that you need a built-in GPS and rust-proofing, you have to remember that you don’t. Their job is to make money, but yours is to spend as little as you can.

 

  1. Choose The Right Time

Unless you’re on the clock, you should hold off from buying your new wheels until the right time. Salespeople and dealerships have targets to meet, which are typically based on quarterly sales. This means that March, June, September, and December are good months to shop, as lots will be trying their hardest to sell more cars. You can also choose the right time from your style of car. Convertibles, for example, are cheaper in the winter when fewer of them are sold.

 

Cars are an expensive purchase, but they can be made less so with some thought and careful planning. Make sure that you research every part of the process and educate yourself on your chosen vehicle so that you can go into negotiations well-prepared. You should also avoid any unnecessary extras and consider shopping for a used car instead of a brand new one. As long as you follow this advice, you should have no trouble driving down the price.
