History of Carbroker.com.au
Carbroker.com.au started in February 2003. The basic idea was simple: The constant struggle between customers and dealers is stressful and tiresome for all parties. The nicest customers always pay the highest prices and the meanest sales people always got the largest commissions. To get a good deal, customers have to suffer through an ordeal to get the best price from a dealership.
A car broker is the perfect way to buy a car. It removes the one thing that stands between a stressful ordeal and a happy experience: The price negotiation.
The three things that stand out most about our business are:
- Carbroker.com.au is by far the most technologically advanced website used by any broker in Australia. Its high level of sophistication means high quality specifications (i.e. much fewer mistakes) and much reduced manual labour requirements.
- Lower fees. Our fees are less than 80% of the industry standard. By “industry standard” I mean the other ethical and professional brokers in Australia. There are also plenty of “cowboys” but I don’t really consider them as competition.
- Ethics and professionalism. We are am all about service, efficiency, integrity and achieving the best outcome for our clients.
Thanks for your help. Must admit I was very sceptical in dealing 'on line' with an unknown person/company. As a single woman I don't want the hassle of going backwards and forwards, playing one dealer off the other. I used the internet to get a measure of what's reasonable and then it's 'give me your best price' no second chance. Some people can't get their head around that but life's too short. I only want to deal with ethical people. I'm happy that a salesperson makes a profit but it has to be fair for both parties. Thanks and I'll be recommending your site to friends.
It is a sorely needed service as we have had nothing but stress and grief with the dealers we have approached ourselves.
Just a brief note to say thanks for your outstanding service. You managed to find a dealer who was prepared to reduce the purchase by some $6750 inclusive of all costs and then you went further by haggling for a better trade in for me giving me a change over cost of exactly $13500 less... THAT I CALL SERVICE...I shall certainly be singing your praises.
Just picked up the Madza and we are both delighted with the price and the service. Your service is brilliant ... I can't of a better way to buy a new car. On behalf of Val and myself a BIG THANK YOU!
I was pleasantly surprised when I saw the discounts of RRP that the dealer was putting down, more than made up for the cost of the fog lights and the paint protection which I optioned in! I signed the dotted line and bought my first brand new Hyundai. I will take delivery less than a week after signing, which I find quite impressive.
I am very pleased with the outcome, and I will certainly recommend it to my friends in the future.
Chris, You are a champ. Your advice on the trade-in worked a treat. I have a buyer at $14,280. A cool $2280 above the original figure! Thanks mate!
Don't know how you achieve your prices but it certainly makes a difference, avoids the hassle of dealing with salesmen and has been excellent value for money. Will definitely recommend your services to family and friends.
...your professionalism and responsiveness is incredible... exceeding my expectations that were already quite high due to the information available, and style and tone of your website.
Your prompt and professional service was very appreciated, and we will recommend your service on to our friends and family.
