Dealer or Private?
If you’re looking to buy a car or vehicle, the odds are you will end up negotiating with either a dealer or a private vendor. So what are the pros and cons of each – and what pitfalls can you avoid?
Tips on a dealer sale
You can choose to trade in your old vehicle as part of the deal
The vehicle is more likely to have been serviced recently and in good working condition
Dealers can be more realistic on prices and more willing to negotiate
Peace of mind
All national Licensed Motor Car Traders must abide by a Code of Business Practice that, depending on which state you’re in, includes a cooling-off period, warranties and refund facilities if the car proves to be stolen.
Tips on a private sale
You don’t need to pay GST on the car
You’re not forking out that extra profit margin to a dealer – saving your hip pocket
Private vendors are not subject to any code of practice – so it’s up to you to ensure a vehicle is up to scratch, both mechanically and legally
The seller doesn’t have to provide a warranty
More running around required, ensuring all the necessary documentation is up to date and legal
Most people are unaware that you can obtain a warranty on a vehicle being purchased privately.
