To help you make the best decision for your car purchase we’ve answered the most frequently asked questions.

Is it possible to test drive a car before I buy it?


Do used cars that you source come with a warranty?

Yes. The used vehicles we source are covered by a statutory warranty. We can also arrange extended warranties if required.

If I buy a used car, how do I know it will be mechanically sound?

AutoSearch Tasmania can arrange an independent and expert inspection for any used car we source on behalf of our clients.

Where does AutoSearch Tasmania source vehicles?

AutoSearch Tasmania deals with reputable licensed motor dealers and caryards throughout the State, plus we also source quality vehicles from private sellers.

How does AutoSearch Tasmania get the best deal on a new vehicle?

We know the list price and the cost of optional extras on all available makes and models. We also know the best time to buy. Sometimes, for example, dealers get over-ride commissions from manufacturers if they meet month-end or year-end targets, or if they achieve target in certain promotional campaigns. We are also able to negotiate with their competitors, so they have an incentive to give us their best price and their best deal. Motor dealers value our business. They trust us because they have dealt with us for more than 30 years.

How do I know AutoSearch Tasmania will act in my interest?

We are jealous of our excellent reputation. We want you to be more than satisfied. That is what has kept us in business and that is what will help us to stay in business.

What is a car broker?

A broker acts as your agent when you are in the market for a new or used vehicle. A car broker sources new or used vehicles from different sellers or motor dealers and negotiates terms and price on your behalf.
