In older times, people prize horses and carriages because it grants them mobility and the freedom to go wherever and whenever they wish. Today, people have the same perception of cars. Being mobile in modern society is one of the greatest pleasures we can enjoy.
Most think that getting a car is a luxury, but in truth, a car has always had practical applications which many overlook. If you are having second thoughts on buying one, think of it as fulfilling a need. Many factors and reasons will make you realise that a car is truly essential.
If you live in Auckland, buying a car makes a lot of sense. Here are three good reasons:
Commute to Work Can Be Tiring
On some days, you’ll have no problems commuting within and beyond Auckland. On others, however, the commute can be tiresome. It’s especially true when you go home after work during peak hours. You can wait for a bus, but you need to be patient. At least if you have a car, you’ll be comfortable listening to your favourite songs even when you’re stuck in traffic.
Doing Errands is Easier with a Private car
Some errands take up much time and are stressful to do if you don’t have a car. Examples are going to the grocery, shopping during the holidays and dropping off and fetching your kids from school or some other place they need to be. Also, you cannot go on long road trips if you do not have a car.
You Have a Budget
More often than not, having money is the definitive indicator that you are ready to have a car. If you have been saving for some time now and you have enough for a down payment, you may consider getting a car—unless you have other priorities. Auckland’s cost of living is lower than in Sydney, Melbourne, London or Hong Kong; and given that the city boasts the second-highest average salary in New Zealand, you have every chance to save for a car.
These are only some of the things that will make you realise that having a car is a good thing. Pick the best car that suits your lifestyle and needs!
