Price of fuel giving you a migraine? Want to do your best to reduce your carbon footprint and help the environment? Feel like being part of the future, and not part of the past? There are endless reasons to switch to an electric vehicle, but the first two listed above are by far the best. […]

If someone told you 20 years ago that you’d be seeing hybrid cars left, right and centre, as well as fully electric vehicles on the road, what would you have said? Probably that they were crazy, right? We’ve come so far in terms of embracing green technology in our cars and we’re only going greener; […]
Hybrid cars are all the rage right now. In Australia, hybrid car sales tripled between 2020 and 2021 – and they’re only going to increase in popularity. Though they still only make up less than 2% of new car sales, more and more car manufacturers are producing hybrids, meaning more and more people are going […]
We can all picture the stereotypical, ‘bad guy’ car dealer. He’s either a charismatic, seemingly friendly, smiling-but-barely-concealing-his-fangs type operator – or he’s blunt and nasty, like Danny Devito as Matilda’s dad in the movie Matilda. So, when it comes to the nasty tricks of these nasty characters, what are we supposed to look out for? […]
Car brokers are similar to superheroes. Well, sort of… but instead of being able to fly and brush off archenemies with laser vision, they help you get the best deal when purchasing a car. But what they do have in common with superheroes is that they defeat the ‘baddies’ – i.e. shifty car dealers who […]
When your parents wanted a new vehicle back in the day, it was pretty straightforward. They either went down to the dealership and bought one. Or they flicked through the back of the newspaper and went looking for ones that sounded good, because there were no photos… and if there were, they were tiny, blurry […]
Sometimes, the fact that you’ve made a mistake is pretty obvious. Not applying sunscreen on a 40 degree day, for example: big mistake. Putting salt in your nan’s cup of tea, rather than sugar: big mistake. Agreeing to watch that trashy reality TV show with your partner: now you’re addicted and it was a big […]
Being able to predict the future would be an awesome superpower, wouldn’t it? Not because you could tell how life is going to unfold for you in the years to come, but because you’d be absolutely filthy rich. Imagine investing in Microsoft when Bill Gates was mucking around with computers in his garage, or throwing […]
Consider yourself a bit of a bargain hunter? Always waiting until something is the right price before you snap it right up? This is a great mentality to have, and if you’ve already got it, we can safely say that you’re on the right track to getting the best deal on your new car. Cars […]
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 […]
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.
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.
I know what you mean when you say 'buyer's remorse'. I've had it each time I bought a new car except this time. It's a great feeling to a) get a great price b) avoid the huge stress. Seeing things from 'the other side' has made me a convert: This is the way to buy a car! Thanks for a great business.
Thank you for the service. The advice was good and the price reasonable. The dealer came to me at work both to value the trade in and to deliver the new car.
Just a note to say a HUGE THANK-YOU for your services. You were very prompt in replying, and saved us $3000 on the purchase of our new car (almost 10% on the total cost of the car). With a young family, that's a huge saving for us. Thank-you again.
I must say that your service is excellent - using it should be a "no brainer" for anyone buying a car. Gaining access to a sourcing professional with deep domain expertise to assist with a high value purchase for under a $100 is fantastic. Many thanks
Thank you very much for an excellent service. I will certainly recommend you to all and any prospective car-buyers I come across in the future.
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.
I’d just like to comment on how smooth it was to purchase my car using your service. The finance broker you put me on to helped the hip pocket as much as the price you were able to secure for me. Thank you so much for making a major purchase easy, smooth and without buyer’s remorse. I will be looking you up when it comes time to replace our other car and I will continue to recommend you to all my family and friends
All I wanted was to buy a car with no hassle and at a decent price. I was very happy with your service and I will use you again in the future. I guess that says it all, doesn't it?
