If you want to take advantage of the End of Financial Year bargains, then June is the ideal time as dealerships need to move as much stock as they can before 30th June. So, how do you make sure you get the best deal?
Below are our TOP TIPS for shopping the vehicle EOFY sales.
The DIY option to finding a bargain is about find the vehicle yourself from dealers or online and negotiating the price and trade-in yourself (without the help of a car finder service)
- Firstly, have a clear idea of what you want – what are the ‘Must-Have’ or ‘Nice to Have’ features of your next car.
- Know your budget – what can you afford, how much can you spend? A finance calculator might help determine this.
- Get finance pre-approved BEFORE you go shopping. This allows you to jump on the bargains and avoid delays.
- Bargain hard – If you love to negotiate, now is the time as dealers need to move as much stock as possible by 30th June and make way for near models.
- Know the worth of your trade-in. Research online and get multiple quotes from dealerships.
- Let an expert negotiate for you – If you don’t like the haggle, a service like 360’s Find and Finance can do the hard work for you.
- Not fussy on colour? Greater discounts can be found on the ‘slower moving stock’ such as the less popular colours or models.
- An earlier ‘plate’ date could save you thousands! Ask for a deal on 2018 or 2017 plated model rather than 2019 to save thousands.
- Buy a demo model. More demonstrator models are likely to be registered in the lead up to the EOFY and these vehicles with very low or no kms, need to be sold ASAP.
- Looking for prestige? Prestige demonstrator vehicles are often of highest spec or top of the range. Even just a few kms on the odometer can mean heavy discounts.
- Are you a small business? Take advantage of the ATO’s $30,000 instant asset write-off incentive.
- Be prepared! Make sure you have consider the above and can go into bargain without the influence of emotion, confusion or stress.
- Get an expert on your side – Save yourself time and money by having an expert find and negotiate on your behalf.
