Car brokers – helping you get the best deal

You need a new car, and you know that you need to do some leg work to find the best deal – but like most of us, you have a stressful job and little free time. Have you heard about car brokers? Maybe you have heard about them but are not too sure how this works?

Car broker businesses are relatively new to the market in Australia – but the concept is taking off in a big way. A car broker can take you through the whole process of buying a new car. All you have to do is to contact a car broker and discuss what type of car and which model you are interested in.

Our car broker will then make contact with all the dealers in their network, to find out who has the make and model that you are looking for available, and at what price. Brokers are dealing with large numbers of requests on a daily basis, and as such, have better negotiating power than you, as an individual buyer, could command. As car brokers, we can therefore get the make and model that you are looking for at a discounted price and/or with extras thrown in. Sometimes car brokers may even get fleet prices, if they have a large demand for the particular vehicle and are able to negotiate a bulk purchase.

With our experience in buying and selling cars, if you are looking for a used car, our broker can go out to inspect vehicles available to purchase, to identify the best option for you and to screen out any problem vehicles.

Dealers normally pay a referral fee to the car broker – but even with this cost factored into the price of the vehicle, generally speaking car brokers will be able to source a vehicle for you at a better price than you would be able to achieve on your own.  This service not only saves you money – but also the time and trouble of running around were you to do this yourself. Normally, a car broker will be able to source you a suitable vehicle much more quickly than you would be able to do yourself.
