This means wether you are buying your car as part of a salary sacrifice, a business asset purchase or as a private buyer we are able to guide you through the most cost effective method to secure your car through a novated lease, chattel mortgage, finance lease or consumer loan just to name a few.

- Do I need car insurance?
Car insurance is a very important step to ensure that your investment is protected. Comprehensive insurance will cover you against any accidental damage that may occur to your vehicle or any other persons property. Comprehensive insurance cover is only compulsory when you obtain any form of finance for your new car but we strongly recommend it for every new car buyer to protect not only their investment but also the extreme cost that will accompany any other persons claim against you in the case of an at fault accident.
- Do I need an extended car warranty on my new car?
If you plan to keep your new car for more than three years or drive further than 100,000kms we recommend you consider an extended warranty for your new car. This warranty will protect you against any unplanned repairs that may occur due to mechanical or electrical failure.
- Do I need gap cover for my new car loan?
Although it is not compulsory you should consider the benefits of EPI or gap cover when using finance for your new car purchase. Gap cover will protect you in the case that your vehicle is written off or stolen and not recovered. Cover will be for the difference of what your insurance company is prepared to pay you for your vehicle against what your payout figure will be to the finance company.
- Can New Cars Discounts (Car Brokers) arrange a Greenslip for my family and friends?
Yes of course, depending on your state of residency we are able to arrange your Greenslip over the phone and send a payment advice to your local RTA so that you can register your vehicle without the inconvenience of going out to find a Greenslip provider.
- What is a novated lease?
A Novated Lease is a 3-way arrangement between the employee, the employer and the financier where the obligations under the finance lease are transferred from the employee to the employer through a Deed of Novation, and the employer assumes responsibility for making the lease payments to the financier. The Deed of Novation remains in force until the earlier of the end of the lease term, or until the employee ceases employment.
- What is a chattel mortgage?
A Chattel Mortgage is a form of car finance available for sole proprietors, partnerships and companies that use the ‘cash’ method of accounting for the Goods and Services Tax (GST). Under the cash method, the GST component of the acquisition price of the motor vehicle can be claimed back on the next Business Activity Statement, rather than claiming the GST over the term of the finance contract.
- What car finance package is best for me?
That depends on your personal situation. There are many different car loan arrangements that can be packaged to suit your individual needs. Some questions will need to be considered such as are you buying this car as part of a salary package (novated lease), is this a business purchase (Chattel Mortgage or CHP) or is this vehicle for your personal use (fiannce loan). Our consultants will be able to provide you with some general advice as to which finance package may be most appropriate.
- Can New Cars Discounts (Car Brokers) organise extras such as window tint?
Because your new car will come directly from a new car dealer you can fit the car with any of the standard accessories that are available from a dealer. These include things like tinted windows, car mats, blue tooth, a tow bar etc. When lodging your initial enquiry let the consultant know so that he/she may factor it in to your on road price.
