In today’s day and age, we’re lucky: there are so many ways of going about securing a new ride. You’ve got a few different options available if it’s time for you to upgrade your wheels, and two of the most commonly compared methods of doing this are leasing and buying. So, you understand the main […]
Leasing or Buying, What are the Differences?
You’ve just landed in Australia from a different country. It’s probably hot and everyone is wearing thongs. They’re also eating these round crusty objects called meat pies and they smell delicious. We know it can be a little bit of a culture shock coming to Australia (even if your first experience here wasn’t as stereotypically […]
You’ve done your research, got a good price from the dealer and now you’re just about to sign the contract for purchasing your new car. But wait, there’s more! Your dealer is about to start talking ‘extras’. This scenario usually produces two different reactions from the customer. The first is that the customer ‘ooohs’ and […]
Owning a car is great, but even we’ll admit that outright ownership can come with a few headaches. First of all, the large upfront cost. It’s a big commitment spending that much money on a car, so you’ve got to be prepared for it. Second of all, if you feel like you’re going to want […]
Buying or leasing a new car is a reason to celebrate – but only if you do it properly. The biggest mistake that Australians make when upgrading their vehicle is to walk into a caryard without doing their research. It’s a costly error which could end up in thousands of dollars of excess payment due […]
Saving money should be a top concern in all facets of life – after all, it doesn’t grow on trees. Whether we’re talking about buying toothpaste that’s fifty percent off at the supermarket, or purchasing a house for a great price, it’s natural for us to want the best deal wherever possible. Buying a new […]
Ever fancied rolling around in a Lamborghini Huracan and turning heads as you roll through the Maccas car park? For most of us, it’s only a dream. But there is one part of buying a Lamborghini Huracan which we ordinary folk can still enjoy with the utmost delight: Luxury Car Tax (LCT). Yep, if you’re […]
Trading one’s car in exchange for another is a super convenient way of upgrading your ride. It’s a two-birds-with-one-stone scenario, because instead of selling your current car and buying a new one, trading in takes care of both of these at once. Before stepping into the car yard to trade your car in, however, you […]
If you’re thinking of buying a new car, or your current car’s warranty is about to run out, you’re probably asking yourself the big question: is it worth investing in an extended warranty? We think the answer is almost always yes. There are a couple of other ways to beef up the protection of your […]
In Australia, we love expats. We love what they bring to our diverse little melting pot: we love their accents, their food and the way they help shape the multicultural place we live in. Wherever you’re from, we welcome you to Australia. So, before you’re eating meat pies everyday and learning how to make tea […]
All went well with the sale - your dealer was helpful, friendly and arranged the tray with no fuss or fanfare. The whole process has been totally painless and I will (and have been) recommend your service to everyone.
Negotiating a deal with a professional car salesman is tough and time-consuming, especially if you don't have a lot of local experience. Having someone act on your behalf creates an advantage that can't be ignored, and I have to say the $4,900 saving that I achieved off a $43,300 vehicle via Carbroker.com.au is definitely worth the minimal cost of registering an interest at the Carbroker.com.au web site. Thanks to Chris Wilson for this much-appreciated service.
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 took delivery of the new car today. Until it actually happened I had a concern at the back of my mind that it was too good to be true to get the car at the price you obtained for me, with no catches. The dealer rep has been great and I have had no sense of getting cut price service to go with the low price. So, thank you. I am sold and based on my experience I am sure your business will continue to grow simply by word of mouth....mine will be among the loudest.
A short note to say thanks for the professional and profitable service that you've just delivered to me. Getting the best price from the city and then translating to a country dealer in a small town made it a lot easier. You'd be surprised how many times we bump into each other, and taking the local personality out of the negotiation was much appreciated by both the dealer and myself.
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!
I picked up my new Nissan Patrol on Friday afternoon. I would like to thank you for all the work you did on my behalf and the fantastic price you secured my new car for. It was so good not to have to do the rounds of the car yards and try to beat car sales people at what they do best. Your website was also great with tips on how to sell my other car as well as all the other information available on it. The dealership was very professional as well and the car was ready as promised and in a very nice condition.
Being a single woman, the thing I appreciated most was not being ripped off by sleazy car salesmen. I actually paid much less than a guy working in my office who bought (almost) the same car!
Picking up car on Friday. Saved >$3000. Thanks for everything. Would recommend process highly. Thanks!
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.
