Buying a New or Used Car in Adelaide and South Australia

When you arrive in Adelaide you will, no doubt, be in search of a car. Due to the distances around Adelaide and South Australia many families find they end up with two cars to stay practical. There are many dealerships around Adelaide offering both new and used cars.

One of the first things you will notice when buying a used car is that the cars keep their condition extremely well in South Australia and it is not unusual for a car ten years older or more looking practically new! As a result of this the second hand car values are higher than that in the UK so expect to pay more for a used car here.

In South Australia it is not currently a legal neccessity to have an MOT of any kind on cars to it is a good idea to try and make sure you have the service history of any car you decide to buy. Many dealers will offer some sort of limited warranty even on used cars.

It is, of course, possible to import your car or motorcycle into Australia from the UK. You will need to be aware of the costs involved and then weigh up if it is indeed practical or if it would be cheaper for you to purchase a new car on arrival. Below you will find import/export info for vehicles as well as the red book to give you an idea of current car values.
