How to Buy a Used ATV


Buying pre-owned ATV remains a great way to save some money, but it can also prove tricky. You should therefore put in the time to research your potential purchases. Several dealers sell used ATVs, but often you will find risk involved since it can prove difficult to really know what you are getting. If you plan to buy one, focus on getting the right used ATV at the right price.

  • Decide what kind of used ATV you want to buy. You can find many different styles and brands of ATV. Before shopping for used ATVs, do research to make the search faster and easier.

  • Look around for dealers that carry the type of used ATV of your choice. Consider having more than one option in mind. Check two or more dealers in the area to compare the prices and deals each offers.
  • If you don’t have the time to hunt around for a used ATV, make a deal via a private sale instead. Make sure you have the used ATV properly inspected.
  • Once you find some ATVs that meet your requirements, list all the necessary details for each. Take notes and research more information about the different options. Visit websites that provide reviews and consumer product information about the kinds of ATVs you like so you can make sure you invest in the right kind of product.
  • Contact the dealer or private owner and set up an appointment for a test drive. Don’t start the negotiation yet at this point in the process. Instead, ensure the condition of the used ATV. Consider hiring a mechanic or bringing with you a knowledgeable friend to conduct a proper inspection of the vehicle’s interior and exterior. Check the used ATV’s frame, engine and gas tank.  If you find any problem with the ATV, negotiate to pay less than the advertised price.
  • Learn how to walk away. If the used ATV is not a good deal or you don’t trust the owner, don’t be afraid to decline the offer. Keep in mind that dealers have an obligation to sell and will do anything in order to make a sale or accommodate a purchase.
  • If you know someone who sells an ATV, consider buying from that person. This can guarantee you will get a good deal. Consider also looking at the classified sections of your local newspapers. You can also search online to find used ATVs for sell. Try to find those located around your general area so you can inspect the vehicle personally.
  • Once you’ve determined which used ATV to buy, make the transaction. Negotiate and ensure you get a fair price.
