Used Car Buying Tips

For many of us, buying a new car just doesn’t fit into our budget or lifestyle. However, buying a used car can seem a challenge. But it doesn’t have to be! If you’re planning to buy a used car, follow these steps to be sure you get the best deal.

Identify Your Budget. Before you begin looking for cars, you need to know what you can afford. That will help narrow down your options. It is recommended that you put down at least 20% and finance for no more than 4 years. If you can put down more than 20%, that’s even better!

Get Financing. If you can’t afford to buy a car outright (it’s okay, a lot of us can’t!), look into financing options. Get a few quotes from different lenders to see who will offer you the best rates. You might even be able to finance through your bank.


Know What You Want. What make and model of car do you want? What’s the most important feature in a car to you? Identify what you want most in your new (to you) car so you can use those specifications to narrow down your search. Continue reading

Celebrating 57 Years

This week marks 57 years of The Guide. From our beginnings as a small advertising flyer, to where we are today, has been a journey. Our continued success is owed to our strong advertiser base and loyal readers that pick up The Guide every Wednesday. There are many elements that contribute to the longevity of a business. One major element for us, especially in our industry, has been the ability to adapt to change. The world is a different place than it was back in 1959. You need look no further than the phone in your pocket for proof. Change is a natural part of life, and how you handle it plays a large role in your success.


Throughout the years, we have stayed on top of the latest changes in our industry. This has involved upgrading our equipment, technology, and workflow to consistently produce a publication that meets the needs of our customers. Our website first went live in 1995, and since then we’ve grown with the digital boom. We began publishing digital editions of our publications to suit the preference of each individual reader. Some prefer to read The Guide online, while others enjoy reading through the pages each week.


While we have made many changes, some things have stayed the same. Every week without fail, our fleet of delivery vans travels across Delmarva to distribute The Guide and The Maryland Guide. If it’s a Wednesday, you can rest easy knowing there’s a new issue of The Guide to be read. We continue to offer a way for locals to stay informed with sales, events, and even the occasional recipe. Our weekly publication has become a tradition in many households, and we aim to keep it that way.

No one knows what the future holds, but we can say with confidence that we will continue to change and adapt in order to meet the needs of our advertisers and readers on Delmarva throughout the years to come.
