By OzzieFairly (ok very) unknowledgeable about car leases. However, if you were only planning on being in Australia for a reasonably short time ie: two years, would it be better to lease a car rather than buy? Our friends are moving out next year (with a plan to only stay for two - long story). They don't have the funds to buy a car and don't really want to take out a loan for a car and then have the hassle of having to sell it only a few short years down the track.
I said I would ask on here - any knowledgeable folk able to enlighten?

By ajcooperI know most of you advise against this but I want to test the water anyway. We have a relatively new Captiva that we'd probably consider taking over. If anyone has done this then I'd appreciate some advice on the following;
cost to ship and shipping time insurance implications back in England I know I'll need to get the dash change over to MPH and get the MOT done.
By ruflixHi there. We're moving to Melbourne on 15 July, new employer is helping with relocation and allowed us a 40 foot container which we're hoping we can squeeze our car into along with the rest of the house. I'm not sure if there'll be an extra charge for that, waiting to hear. I'm trying though to get a handle on the other costs and struggling a bit.
It's an old but good car, Peugeot 307 SW 56 plate. 94,000 miles. Auto Trader says 1500 quid now, we bought it for just over 5k in 2011. I'll get less if I have to sell it though as we need it till the last minute so I'll be taking it down a used car yard. I've seen that equivalent cars are much more expensive in Australia (circa £4000 / $6500) so we wanted to try to keep it as long as the costs aren't too great to take over.
Taxes don't seem too bad as they are based on the value of the car so only 20% or so of the value at say £1500, so £300 or so. But are there other costs I need to be aware of to get it on the road down under, what are they typically? Registration, modification, roadworthy certificate? I know it'll need a steam clean before it goes ...
Thanks in advance for any advice ....
