Car sales - online links

    Recommended Posts

    The major sites when looking online for a car are..

     

    http://www.carsales.com.au

     

    http://www.carsguide.com.au

    (allows you to sell your car for free)

     

    http://www.carpoint.com.au

     

    http://www.drive.com.au

     

    Note: Expect to pay double the price for the same car in Oz, than what you would pay in the UK. This is because of high taxes.

     

    On a sunny side though, petrol in oz is about 3x times cheaper than in the UK.

    Apologies Mark - I know you've answered this one a few months ago but unfortunately that job didn't come through, we didn't think we were going to Oz so I didn't keep it....another one has and all is in motion again! Anyway - we have 2 cars bought from new in 03 and 05 worth [new!] £10,000 and £18,000 respectively. I can't find the same model in Oz and I can't work out if it's worth taking one [as the cars are so expensive there] or both or neither! the carshipping site needs the Oz model and keeps crashing too! Help!

    Thanks Mark - that tells me about selling - I'm more interested in whether to import or buy "new". As for the double price - do you mean $ to £? I've tracked down a Nissan 4x4 X-trail [that they seem to have UK and Oz] and it's cheaper in Oz $31,000 than UK £16,000 = $38,000 [roughly]

    Sorry, I've just come across your post.

     

    Generally, European models are more expensive in oz, due to obvious shipping costs. Also cars over $48K (I think it is) unfortunately attract "luxury car tax". You won't see as many european cars in oz for this reason. Home made Holdens/Fords/Mitsibishi and asian cars are more common.

    In South Australia, it pays to check out the Government auction site and check on the prices paid for a near new vehicle, mostly still with factory warranty on them.

        Fairly (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?

        I 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.
        Thanks

        Hi 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 ....
