Car Buying Precautions

Before actually buying a secondhand car we suggest that you visit

https://my.service.nsw.gov.au/MyServiceNSW/index#/rms/freeRegoCheck/display

Here you will be able to check the that the number plate and last four digits of the VIN number do actually correspond with the VIN number on the car.

You can buy from the RMS a history of the vehicle, which currently, cost $22.00

Also please visit https://www.fairtrading.nsw.gov.au/cars-and-other-vehicles/buying-and-selling-a-car/before-you-buy-a-car

Finally if you are serious about buying the car please consider letting us do a pre-purchase inspection for you.
