Out of Town Buyers

Not from the Tauranga/Mt Maunganui area? – that is not a problem. Here at Sheaff Vehicles we have been doing deals with “out of town’ buyers for years – from the far north to Invercargill, we can get your new vehicle to you in a no fuss, low risk way.

The first stage though is being comfortable that the vehicle is as described, and there are a couple of options available to you.

  • Arrange for someone you know locally to come and inspect and test drive it for you, and ask for their feedback.
  • Arrange for an independent Pre-Purchase inspection (e.g. through the AA). We will happily get the vehicle to and from the inspection facility for free, although you will need to pay for the inspection to be done.
  • We can perform an MTA Approved Pre-Purchase inspection of the vehicle in our workshop. This can be done for FREE as part of our pre-sales service. This is a comprehensive report on the condition and mechanical state of the vehicle as per below.

Whatever option you choose, rest assured there will be no surprises when you see the vehicle for the first time.

In terms of taking delivery, again there are a number of options available to you, from the vehicle being transported to you by a professional transport company, to a “meet in the middle” arrangement, or even being personally delivered. We have also helped out with flights or bus trips to Tauranga where we’ll collect you from the terminal in your new vehicle! Naturally the costs of these options vary depending on your location and situation, however, the point is we will certainly work with you to make the whole process as easy as possible.

So talk to us today about the vehicle you want, and how we can get it to you.
