THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE NOVATED LEASE IS THE VEHICLE PRICE
A competitive Novated lease starts with the best vehicle price. Every vehicle manufacture (such as Toyota or Mazda) have levels of discount available to companies that purchase a lot of vehicle (leasing companies, fleet buyers and online vehicle buying sites). One of the great opportunities in a novated lease is the ability to take advantage of these discounts. Vehicle Solutions established Motorbuys which is Australia’s only fully automated online vehicle buying website. By automated we mean that when you request pricing on a vehicle the computer system sends your request to every dealership in the region/s chosen (anonymously) and the dealership pricing responses are sent directly back to you (anonymously). Only then do you have a transparent competitive vehicle price that can be used to complete the Novated Leasing quotes.
