If you are new to Car Mechanic Simulator 2015, the thing you are recommended to remember is that this game gives you a new way to make money to develop your garage.
Yes, you can shop for greatly worn or damaged cars and then can rectify the issues in the vehicle and can sell them for a higher amount as compared to the money that you pay for shopping it.
To buy damaged cars, you will have to participate in car auctions. However, before shopping for such a car, it is important to make sure that there is a parking lot ready for the vehicle coming into your garage through auction shopping.
How to unlock a parking lot?
You can unlock a parking lot to give room for the vehicle only when you have 50000 dollars and 7000 experience points.
If you cannot unlock a parking lot in your garage, you can shop for a parking add-on. Either the parking lot or the parking add-on should be ready before you take part in the bids that take place in the auctions center.
Once you gain access to the auctions center, you will find that the entire gaming dynamics changes. However, you are recommended to be careful initially; otherwise, you will find yourself in a tough situation with respect to money.
You can gain experience and can improve yourself when you know how this all works and how some pitfalls can be prevented.
Shopping for the car through auctions:
At the auctions center, you should remember that most of the vehicles will not be cheap as per your expectation. Do not that after you shop for a damaged car, you will have to spend some thousands of dollars on its repairs. So, it is better to fix a budget considering the auction restoration expenses.
Before you head out for a car shopping, it is better to check whether you have a minimum of $30,000 – $40,000 in hand.
A suggestion here is to stay away from Maluch. The reason is that the profit with this will be very meagre. Of course, you can expect good profits from other vehicles, particularly if you have some luck with repairs.
Things to remember when you participate in an auction:
When you shop a car, you will have to option to send the same either to the garage or to the parking add-on.
The thing to remember here is that you cannot tell much about the condition of the vehicle before you conduct an inspection at your garage. But, this can be done only after shopping the vehicle at the bid.
You are recommended not to rely wholly on the star rating to purchase a vehicle at the auction.
As mentioned earlier, do not opt for Maluch just because they are affordable. Even though you can shop them at around $2500, you will have to spend a minimum of $5000 on its repairs.
After bringing the car to the garage:
Once you have brought the car to the garage for auction restoration, it is all yours and you can make the changes as per your wish.
As soon as you open the vehicle to do some works on it, you will see details about all the parts of the car and their condition. But, you cannot find this detail for the body.
By opening the window, you can see the present sale value of the vehicle and also the auction restoration bonus. The thing you will have to remember here is that for any missing parts, you will get a brutal penalty on the value of the vehicle.
