Top 4 Tips to Find Your New Car This EOFY

Top 4 tips to find your new car this EOFY

Historically, the end of the financial year (EOFY) is the best time of year to buy your new car. Dealers and manufacturers are desperate to clear their dealership floors to hit their yearly target and are willing to let cars go at a seriously discounted price to do so.

However, 2021 is playing out differently to other years.

The shifting travelling behaviours from public transport to private vehicles has led to a major increase in demand for cars. Manufacturers and dealers are struggling to meet this growing demand.

COVID-19 has significantly slowed down manufacturing across the globe with factory closures and a reduced workforce to comply with restrictions.

Both making it much harder to find a deal on a new car, but not impossible. Remunerator are here to help.

Tip 1: Research

Know the car you want through and through.

This includes:

  • Make
  • Model
  • Any optional extras you want.

If you’re unsure, read our thoughts on what to consider when choosing your novated lease.

Also be aware if your new car is due for an update or facelift soon, these generally happen around every 5 years.

We have done some of the groundwork on some features like head-up display and the top 5 safety features.

Tip 2: Shop around

Learn about the market for your new car.

Are there enough models out there that you can use this to your advantage and negotiate yourself a discount?

If not, this is still valuable information to know as there are long wait times on many vehicles across the board. Cars are selling quickly now – you may have found the needle in a haystack!

Tip 3: How good is the deal?

There are other deals you can negotiate for yourself instead of a discount on the car. Some manufacturers are increasing their warranties or offering servicing specials.

We have secured an exclusive to Remunerator offer with Nissan and Volkswagen dealerships of 3-years free servicing when you source your new Nissan or Volkswagen using Remunerator’s car procurement service (Terms and conditions apply).
