Buying a car

Recommended Posts

Justyna

Hi Everyone,

 

Hope someone could help:)

 

Can you buy a car using your Airbnb's address? (car registration/licence etc)

 

Basically, we would like to buy a car as soon as possible, to avoid paying for a rental car.

 

I fear it might take us a few weeks or months to find rental accommodation.......

 

Many thanks

I'm sure you can, just check with the Airbnb if they're ok to keep post for you. You'll just have to update your address when you find a rental.

AirBnb host did not want post and recommended we open a box with Auspost.

On day 1 we went to the post office to open a PO box. This was very useful as we would likely be moving about quite a bit until we find a longer term rental.

Day 2 we went to ATO and medicare to register, also the banks to activate accounts and update contact details and Tax file numbers etc.

We bought a used car from interstate on day 3. I had the Blue, Pink and Green slips all done on day 4 in the morning. Took the Canberra plates off and went to Service NSW in the afternoon to register and get NSW plates. Also converted my licence while I was there.

On day 5 I was bored out of my skull and concerned if I'll fit in with the new employer. I had to start 2 days later. I still work for them almost 6 years on.

What website did you use to buy the car from SA? I assume you bought it online?

Purchased directly from the Mazda dealership. They had good deals on demo models.

Hi, look at

 

https://www.carsales.com.au/   you can elect dealer or private sellers or both 

Personally I would wait until you get here, and do it face to face (and dont be shy to ask for discount)
