I’m one of the many people out there who doesn’t have a clue what to look for in a used car deal. Mostly, I go on psychic impressions and pray that the relative I’ve dragged along for his car knowledge catches any problems. If a person doesn’t have a resident car expert in his or her family, though, I’d bet they’d just love to hire a used car consultant. The only thing you need for this is expertise in car repairs. Advertise that you’ll help prospective used car buyers find a reliable vehicle. Offer to take them on a tour of used car lots or accompany them to inspect a private seller’s car. Or they can just drive the car to you to inspect for them. Either way, charge them by the hour.
