WHEN buying a used car, there’s plenty to consider before deciding which model is right for you. And often the best way to see if you’re comfortable in a vehicle is to take it for a test drive. Drivers took some bizarre items with them to test out a used car But some motorists took “comfortable” a little far when trying out a new set of wheels. A survey of thousands of UK used car dealers uncovered some of the most bizarre items motorists brought to a test drive. Rather than bring a measuring tape or look up vehicle dimensions online, these prospective buyers decided it was better to come equipped and make the test driving experience “more realistic”. Conducted by online used car platform, CarGurus, the research revealed drivers brought pets, furniture and even deceased relatives along with them to make sure the motor was the right fit. [boxout headline=”Top 10 most bizarre things buyers brought to a test drive” intro=”A CarGurus survey of UK used car dealers revealed the most unusual things Brits took with them for a spin:”] A “lucky egg” A horse A rifle A 12-foot pet snake An accordion Two parrots A mattress The ashes of a deceased relative Slippers A truncheon [/boxout] And while it might not be too unusual to bring the family dog along, a 12-foot pet snake, a horse and two parrots would have raised some eyebrows in the dealership.

Plenty of musicians brought their instruments along to make sure they could fit them in the boot, while one driver even turned up in slippers because they weren’t able to operate the pedals in anything else.
