AutoSearch Tasmania has been in business since 1991. We have helped hundreds of clients. Satisfied clients are our best source of business. They return to us, and they tell others about our service. 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.

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 20 years.

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.

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