Motor vehicles generally are on the increase in Australia. The ABS (Australian Bureau of Statistics http://www.abs.gov.au) believes there has been an increase of approximately 1.1m motor vehicles on the road since 2012. This makes sense in a country in growth, however what is also interesting is the growth specifically in light commercial vehicles in this period.
Not only did commercial vehicles grow, but due to their popularity, they now take up a larger percentage of the vehicle landscape than they did back in 2012. In fact there are now an extra 230,000 light commercial vehicles on the road, meaning more people are driving them than ever before.
It’s likely that this trend will continue on into 2016 and beyond as more businesses look to commercial vehicles to support their ever growing business needs, as firms become more widespread and not limited to geographical locations.
It’s not surprising then, that as more people are looking to drive a commercial vehicle, that more and more companies are become available to offer that service. Whereas previously car companies would uniquely rely on passenger vehicles for sales, what we are seeing more and more nowadays, is companies also supplying and buying commercial vehicles to account for this growing usage across Australia.
It means that your options as a buyer or seller of a commercial vehicle are as big as ever. And whilst you could still choose the traditional “car yard” method to buy and sell in commercial vehicles, there are now plenty of online options for car sellers that are making it even easier to do your business there – just like with passenger cars.
Well respected automotive online companies such as Carsales.com.au now include great options for commercial vehicles too, with all the benefits they have already established within the passenger vehicle market. Benefits like quick valuations and quotes, being available 7 days a week to fit around your business, quick payment options to suit your company such as cash straightaway or even a 24 hour bank transfer so your cash is not tied up in assets for long.
There are also options out there for companies to visit you to buy your commercial vehicles, meaning that during busy business schedules, the companies can work around you.
So there’s never been a better time to be buying or selling commercial vehicles. It’s a growing trend that is set to continue, and now increasingly not only are online companies offering this service, they are experienced in the area. It means you can be sure you are dealing with an expert, not just someone who is treating you like you a passenger vehicle seller or buyer. They can also offer great features and packages that you may struggle to find in offline businesses, so are well worth investigating the next time you are looking to buy or sell a commercial vehicle.
