It finally happened.

You were cruising along Highway 1 on the way to Brisbane from Sydney, when your beat up old car finally broke down for good.

Now that you’re stressed and knackered from dealing with tow trucks and mechanics, you’ve finally decided to buy a new car. But where do you start?

These days, there are lots of options for finding new cars and it’s a good idea to explore the pros and cons of each before you make a final decision. Ultimately, your goal should be to find a high-quality vehicle at a price that doesn’t break the bank. So where should you begin your search?

Online Classifieds

In recent years, online classifieds have become a popular place to look for new cars. Websites like CarSales and Gumtree allow you to search for your ideal car by make, model, or even price range. Unfortunately, many of the search results you see will be many miles away from your location, making it difficult to find cars that you can physically see and test drive.

Dealerships

Ahh, the traditional approach. For many decades, dealerships have been the first choice of Australians looking for new car deals. Sadly, this is rarely the best place to find a good car at a good price. Salespeople are motivated to make sales so that they can earn a good commission, and are less concerned with getting you into the right car.

Car Brokers

This personal car sales professional obtains detailed information about the car you want and how much you want to spend, and does all the hard work of finding a car that fits. Our car brokers search all the dealerships in Australia, making them compete for your business by offering bottom line prices.
