How to Find the Right Traveling Car for Your Summer Road Trip

Traveling Car for Summer TourIt can be tricky to know how to find the right traveling car for you! Here are some tips for doing just that:


  • Ask to see a title. You should always ask to see your chosen vehicle’s title before even thinking about buying it. And, if there is no title? It’s time to run far, far away.
  • Ask for service receipts.Service receipts indicate that a car has been 100% thoroughly maintained and cared for; these also verify the car’s mileage. Remember: you should never simply take anything at face value when you’re buying a used car. Ask for the proper paperwork at any chance you get!
  • Do a thorough inspection of the inside of the car.You should always examine the car’s inside as closely as possible before making a decision to purchase.
  • Don’t buy the first car you see.  You should always do some looking around before you settle on a vehicle. It can be tempting to simply purchase the first car you love (or the first car you see), but this is almost always a mistake. Never, ever buy on impulse – a car is too precious of a commodity to do so! Be willing to walk away, and know not to buy the first car that catches your eye.
  • Know your budget.You should always know your spending limit before you set out to buy a used vehicle. That way, you know your threshold before you begin negotiating with a salesperson. Which brings us to our next point…
  • Negotiation is key.You should definitely come to the dealership armed with negotiation skills!And, if you really feel there’s a reason you should be getting a better deal on a car, make this clear. For instance, if you’ll be purchasing another car in the future with the dealership, use that bit of info to your advantage when negotiating.
  • Know when and where the deals are.Now’s the time to locate the best deals possible – because they’re definitely out there! Did you know?Every dealership offers special deals, depending on the season. For instance, if you can wait until the end of the year to purchase your new vehicle, this is a fantastic time to get a great deal, because most dealers will be itching to get their older models off the floor.


Originally founded in 1992, “Public Auto Auction Company” (or, PAACO) began by primarily servicing the Hispanic community – auctions were run on the weekends, and inexpensive cars were sold for cash. Gradually, customers started asking for better vehicles, and in-house financing services became a necessity; we added financing services to the auction business. By working with customers that had been historically turned away by traditional lending institutions, PAACO became a success – we were now investing in our customers’ future, rather than their past. We were in uncharted territory and began creating competition across Dallas/Fort Worth and the Houston BHPH markets. Thanks to our pioneering spirit, PAACO continues to push the envelope wherever we go by providing our customers with a one-of-a-kind experience.

For over 24 years, PAACO has been helping good people get the transportation they need and deserve. We strongly believe that our customers deserve respect, regardless of past credit challenges.
