For me its 80 km to the nearest car dealer and 200 km east or south to the nearest opposition and petrol out here is $1.67 a litre. A phone call is all very well, but the car dealer wants to see my trade in. That same phone call will get me on to Justin Brolly from Teachers Car Buying Service. He can give me a trade in figure over the phone and then will phone around many car dealers for the best price, and he gets it! Last time he saved me almost $2,000 over the local offer. It’s definitely worth a phone call.
