Many considering your mode of transportation an integral
part of everyday life. Between work,
school, daycare, shopping and any other errands, we spend a good portion of our
days needing to get from point A to point B.
In today’s day and age, we all have several options for that
transportation which include owning, leasing, taxis, trains, public bussing,
and up-and-coming options like Uber. But
they all boil down to money. You need
money for each and every one of these options.
While every person has their opinions on what works best for them, here
are a few benefits of actually owning your own vehicle.
The first benefit is freedom. Knowing you can hop in your car, truck or SUV
whenever you need to go somewhere is priceless.
There is no waiting for the bus or taxi or train to show up and then
have to sit through their respective routes to arrive at your destination. You will arrive at your destination on your
own schedule and your own convenience.
The chance to improve or establish your credit. As long as you make your monthly payments on
time, you can show other creditors that you are a reliable and dependable member
of society that will help you make other purchases on credit such as houses,
credit cards or other big purchases that you may not have the cash to front.
Some argue that vehicle ownership builds
stronger families. Having transportation
at your fingertips means you can take your kids to that soccer game, or that
family trip to the movies. You can help
your kids excel in school by getting them after school tutoring or driving them
to that volunteer event. And finally;
road trips. Hop in that truck and take a
trip together as a family building memories that will last a lifetime.
Most people purchase a vehicle by financing
through a bank or credit union. If you
finance for say a 5 or 6-year loan, the financial institution “owns” that
vehicle for that amount of time. But as
soon as you pay that loan off, that vehicle is YOURS; no monthly payments. As long as you do the routine maintenance on
that vehicle, you can have reliable transportation for years and years to come.
Make it yours! When you own a vehicle, you can make upgrades
or changes to it to make it represent you and your personality. If you want to paint it a different color, go
for it! If you want to put different
wheels and tires on it, do it! If you
want to install a hitch so you can pull that 5th wheel or travel
trailer or flatbed trailer with your toys, do it up! You can make your vehicle fit your lifestyle!
We hope we have provided you a little bit of insight into
the benefits of purchasing a car. Let it
help bring you the freedom you want to be you and live the kind of life you
