Ellerslie Car Fair in Auckland

Say you just landed in NZ, and you know that you'll be there for not just 1 or 2 weeks, but for at least 6 months. You're considering getting a used vehicle to bring you places and a place to lay your head at night. You don't want to spend sleeping in hotels/ hostels but instead, want to wake up to spectacular sights, overlooking crystal clear water and squeaking gulls flying on top of you. You enjoy listening to the waves, feeling the morning breeze against your face as you've got yourself layered up, holding tightly to the mug and feeling the steam on your face as you inhale the coffee aroma. ~~ Hmmm ~~

You might start off by yourself but don't worry, soon enough, another fellow traveller would be happy to join you on your NZ road trip adventure. What's better than sharing the cost and fun at the same time?

So, if you happened to be in Auckland, one of the place to check out for used car deals would be the Ellerslie Sunday Car Fair. It starts from 9am till 12noon every Sunday at an open air car park, Sellers line their cars according to price range and buyers get the opportunity to test drive on roads outside the car park. It is advisable that buyers send their cars for mechanical inspection which is available on the spot for a fee by a 3rd party. Buyers can expect to drive home the cars on that day itself should everything goes on smoothly. It is totally to the agreement of the seller and buyer on the price, method of payment, documents on the change of ownership, insurance, WOF (Warranty of Fitness), etc. 

A local friend brought A.S and 2 other mates here and it wasn't a really nice day to view cars. However, it was an eye-opening experience as to how a car changed hands so easily in a car fair. 

This page is most suitable to find out more about this fair. 

So many cars, so many buyers, and who cares bout the weather.

Let's see how much this campervan costs.
