How to buy, sell and trade in a car online with confidence

Signs you can trust an online car dealer

Think of all the products and purchases, large and small, you buy online. Everything from coffee makers to houses. There's no reason why buying a car, selling a car or trading in a car shouldn't be a convenient and effective way to source your next car. But who can you trust and what should you look out for?

Look at the name behind the name

Online car sellers are not new to the Australian motoring market, but the latest online car retailer has the backing of a globally trusted brand. SD Motors is the newly created online car retail presence of Sime Darby, a global company and leading automotive group in Australia across a range of luxury brands. With a global shortage of materials used in car production affecting production lines, car buyers in Australia are turning to the used-car market. SD Motors was created to give car buyers and sellers across Australia the opportunity to source quality used cars from a trusted car retailer and buy with confidence knowing each car is backed by a quality assurance, money-back guarantee and warranty. A good sign of an online car retailer you can trust.

Quality Assurance. Has the car been reconditioned?
Every used car from SD Motors goes through a comprehensive 300 point inspection and is fully reconditioned before sale.

Does it have a Money-back Guarantee?
SD Motors offers a 7-day money-back guarantee to make sure you love your new car.

90-Day Warranty. For total peace of mind.
All SD Motors cars come with a 90-day extended warranty.

Sell a car online. Trade-in a car online. What to look for.
Competitive pricing is the first thing every buyer wants. SD Motors will make you an offer to buy your car right away with an obligation-free evaluation.

Online car finance. How easy is it?
Look for a simple finance application and online finance calculator. Is pre-approval offered? Can you make weekly repayments? SD Motors finance gives you real-time lending decisions. Can't be simpler than that.

Last but not least, how easy is the process itself? If everything is clear and simple to use and understand, that's a good sign that you are on your way to getting the car you want in the easiest way available. Without leaving home.
