5 Things You Should Do Before Buying a Car
You’ve signed the papers and will be on the road in no time! We wanted to provide you a few basic pointers before you got started.
Make sure your auto insurance coverage is up to date. Our Business Managers can provide you with a market competitive price for comprehensive motor vehicle policy if they haven’t already.
It is essential to guarantee that your automobile is insured from the minute you sign for it and drive it on the road.
If you are at fault in a motor vehicle collision anywhere in Australia, your QLD CTP (Compulsory Third Party Insurance) will cover you for any injuries caused to other road users as long as your car is registered.
Consider Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance, which protects you against accident damage, fire and theft, and damage to other people’s automobiles or property. This coverage usually applies to anybody else driving if they match the age requirements and are nominated beforehand to the insurer.
Most insurers will provide you with a 14 or 21-day period cover letter, ensuring that you have insurance coverage from the beginning of your ownership.
At Motorama, we sell hundreds of automobiles each year, and our experts can also provide you with an obligation-free, market-competitive price for comprehensive motor vehicle insurance. Make certain to inquire!
Toll roads and roadside assistance
- Have you considered roadside assistance? If you had it with your prior vehicle, be sure to transfer it to your new vehicle. If necessary, we may also provide you with a Roadside Assistance quotation. If you purchase a used vehicle from Motorama, you’ll get 12 months of free roadside assistance; just download the app from the App Store or Google Play and you’re good to go.
- Every year, one in every three drivers is rescued by roadside help. You require the service to get back on the road if you have a flat battery, need a tyre replaced, or need emergency fuel. There are frequently multiple levels of coverage, including premium choices that provide access to a variety of extra travel perks, so there is always a roadside assistance to suit your driving style.
- Should you use the Go Between Bridge Toll Bridge or the Clem Jones Tunnel? Don’t forget to update your registration, make, and model information on Linkt so your new vehicle is clear on tolls.
- Toll road users who travel often might consider creating an account with a toll payment service. If you drive on a toll road without arranging payment ahead of time or failing to pay your toll within three days, the vehicle’s registered owner will get an unpaid toll notice from the toll road’s payment provider. Additional costs may be included in this notification. The message will contain payment instructions.
Last things to consider
Are you thinking of selling your old car? Motorama is continuously seeking for new vehicles in any condition. If you haven’t already, we can check at your present car and give you an obligation-free quotation on how much it could be worth – selling it directly to us might save you a lot of time and work.
Selling your car privately requires time and effort, and will thus cost you money. Consider the measures you must take: get a roadworthy certificate and make any necessary modifications to fulfill safety requirements. Then you must market the automobile (online), which necessitates the taking of some good-looking images of the vehicle. When you have a prospective client, you must take them for a test drive, negotiate the price, and eventually transfer the registration to them.
You just drive it in when selling to a dealer. All you need to provide is the necessary paperwork, which you can find on our ‘Million Dollar Buying Drive’ website. You’ll walk away with the money in your bank account in 30 minutes. There is no need for an appointment, and there is no need to haggle.
