What does a car broker do?

Car brokers offer a tailored service to ensure you choose the right vehicle to suit both your needs and budget. Choosing a vehicle that’s right for you can be both confusing and time consuming. Amidst the endless research and spec comparisons, the task of choosing and purchasing a new vehicle can be overwhelming at best.

Essentially, a car broker operates on behalf of their client to purchase or sell a car. They can act as a buying agent between vendor and buyer, your car broker will guide you through the entire process to source a suitable new or used motor vehicle specific to your requirements while also negotiating a price that fits within your budget.

How does a car buying service work?

While the concept of a car broker is still foreign to many, choosing to work with a car broker can remove the guesswork and stress often associated with big ticket purchases, like cars.

Once you’ve chosen a car broker, the process will often begin with a discussion about the type of vehicle you are looking for. If you’re not sure what make and model will work best for you, your car broker can help you determine what your must-have features and vehicle priorities are to help narrow down options that align with your needs, budget, and circumstances, to ensure you to make an educated choice that you can be confident in and comfortable with.

Your broker will then reach out to their extensive database of contacts and dealerships to source the best possible price on the vehicle you are looking for. Once this is done the broker can help organise car finance on your behalf and finalise payment and delivery with the dealer.

One of the key advantages of using a car broker is that you are then able to utilise the existing connections and relationships the broker has with an array of car dealers who will then compete for the opportunity of your business. Additionally, because car brokers purchase vehicles in a commercial capacity, often several cars a day, they can negotiate your chosen vehicle to a price significantly lower than retail or offer the inclusion of extras with your purchase.

Brokers work with a variety of industry professionals daily and have access to a range of available vehicles so you can rest assured knowing that working with a car broker to purchase your next car will allow you to take full advantage of their extensive experience to your financial benefit.
