Plan Your Trade in Visit


Visit One of Our Location

Across our locations, we have hundreds of cars. Most of these cars are located undercover. This means that whatever the weather, you will be able to browse for your next car. 


Bring your ID

To prove that you are you, we’ll need a few things. Be sure to bring a valid NZ driving licence or current passport. You’ll also need two documents providing your current address dated within the last three months, for example, a bank statement, council tax statement, or any other utility bill.
If you have outstanding finance, you’ll need to bring proof of settlement. Please Note: We do not accept mobile phone bills as proof of address.


Bring Your Car’s ID

We will also need a few things to prove your car’s identity, such as a logbook, registration documents, service history, and any other bills or receipts relating to your car. Please Note: The car must be registered to you as the legal owner at your address for at least three months.
We’ll also need all the extra bits and bobs that come with your car, such as spare keys, handbooks, sound system facials, remote control, or wheel nut keys.
