Hi, do you also service Queensland? Especially the Sunshine Coast or Brisbane?
I’m after a Commuter van which can transfer into a courier van if needed, such as a Toyota Hiace 12 seater, or similar. Used car is ok.

HI, just wondering what's the reason a quote has expired if you have an account with MotorScout? Would they reinstate the quote back? How long would the quote be valid for?

Hi, how are you finding getting quotes for the Toyota Landcruiser 300 Sahara. Are dealers giving you prices or just guideline price.
Do you source close to where the buyer is located?
Or do I give you radius on how far I am willing to travel to pick it up.

Hi, I wanted to check if your organisation can organised novated leasing/salary packaging when we buy the car through it? It would be great to know.

l was wondering does Motor Scout try to get quotes close to where l live in Victoria or is there an unlimited kilometer radius involved when finding a dealership...Also as l'm looking at a GXL Rav4 2.5l hybrid do you look at how cheap you can get the deposit down too. l'm hearing some dealers want deposit prices ranging from $2000 down to $500. Seeing as l will be looking to finance , if approved, does it start from when it is approved or when l collect the car which could be in 12 months time. Thanks

Is it legitimate? Phone number put me on hold then rings out, online chat help left chat and did not respond to a car make question.

Emma

Yes, this is a legitimate business…If you submit your details on their website they will call you back (Monday-Friday) to confirm what you are looking for and then hopefully they should come back with quotes shortly after. When you accept a quote you will see the dealership’s details and you will deal with the dealership just like you normally would when buying a car directly at a dealership.

Other car brokers say they have the biggest dealer networks, volume buyer and can get the largest fleet discounts. So what distinguishes Motor Scout from other car brokers? Thanks.

Is it possible to talk to someone directly in your Sydney office? Have been trying for days to no avail! I do not feel safe depositing lots of money for a car online which I cannot test drive.
Thanks

Motor Scout
Motor Scout   DM   

Hi Neo. There is currently a business posing as Motor Scout selling used cars online. Unfortunately they are in no way associated with Motor Scout Australia. We’re an online broker who only assist with new car dealers so our advice is to steer clear of these overseas imitators and save yourself a few big headaches. Regards
