Your Questions About Cheap Student Car Insurance Ireland
Used car + bike dealerships in west LA? (venice, santa monica)?
Planning ahead – but I like to research things well in advance
In May 2013, I plan on heading to LA, living near Venice, on a 4 month J1 student work/travel visa from Ireland
I’ll be needing either a car or bike to get around as work could be anywhere between Venice, Santa Monica or closer to West Hollywood
Plus, I’ve full intentions of travelling around the National Parks of California and Utah, so a bike instead of a car makes a lot more sense
I’d a good look around on ebay and craig’s list, for both used cars and bikes
but of the few cars priced under $2k a lot of it looks like complete junk and any bikes under $3k are all Moto X dirt bikes
Similar situation with rental.
Prices in the thousands for 3 month rental for either bike or car
If I were to buy a car I’d go for someting basic and reliable like a Merc 190 or a Crown Vic, and in a bike the likes of an old Honda CB750 or Harley Sportster 883
Do any dealerships deal only in cheap used/ex hire/ex gov cars?
Do any larger pawn shops buy and sell used cars?
eg: – like I’d buy for $1000, and sell back at an agreed price of like $300 etc… 90 days later
What motor insurance brokers deal with non standard customers?
As it is, It’s looking more sensible to ship my own bike from Heathrow in London to LAX
At least there would be less chance of it breaking down and leaving me stranded in the middle of death Valley
Here’s the deal: LA is the land of the Car. Things are spread WAY out here, and you must have a car or spend your live on a slow inefficient bus. So there is a high demand for cars here. Your idea for a pawn shop might be a good one. You’ll need to call around. OR, you can call those guys on Pawn Stars. They’re in Las Vegas, but I’ve seen them deal with unusual situations like this one. And they REALLY love bikes. REALLY.
I would check with a travel agent about insurance. That’s not my area of expertise.
