I am looking to buy a reasonably priced family car, upto about $10k. I am looking at a couple of online auctions e.g graysonline, which appear to have some potentially good opportunities.
Is there anything I need to be aware of (apart from the usual e.g. sales commission of 5%)? I know I will needa "UVP" ($18), but what about the cost of plates..is this included in the rego or additional costs (the cars come without plates if sold to private buyers).
Would appreciate any feedback from folks who have used these services. the cars look in good condition, with service history and some with fair mileage. I understand you cant drive them but you can start the engine - is there any protection for a buyer if the car does not "work" - or does the "sight unseen" tag protect the auction house completely?
