When using our car buying service, you’ll have the added benefit of paying fewer on-road costs. This is because you’ve purchased the vehicle at a fleet rate, which is considerably cheaper than what dealers can offer.
Many on-road costs, such as stamp duty and luxury car tax, are based on the vehicle’s price — so if you pay less for the car, it also means you will pay less in costs. Buying a new car through National Car Brokers also means you’ll be able to save on dealer pre-delivery charges.
Read on for more details about on-road costs and how they impact the final price of your new car deal.
Dealer Pre-Delivery Charges
A dealer pre-delivery charge (also known as a dealer delivery) is a fee that covers any detailing and prep work prior to the owner taking delivery of a vehicle.
Charges vary according to the type of vehicle. For example, the pre-delivery charge for a Holden Commodore usually costs around $1,700. A prestige vehicle might be twice that amount, while a sports car such as a Porsche or a Ferrari will be charged around $6,000.
Depending on the manufacturer, National Car Brokers can get a pre-delivery charge discount for customers because we buy at fleet prices, not dealer retail prices.
Stamp duty is payable when ownership of a motor vehicle is transferred from one person to another. It varies in each state and territory. In New South Wales, the stamp duty is 3 per cent of the vehicle price (inclusive of GST) up to $45,000, then 5 per cent for every dollar above this. In South Australia, stamp duty is $60 for the first $3,000 of the purchase price, then 4 per cent for every dollar over this figure.
