Q. RENT or RENT TO OWN, what's the difference?

Lease / Offer to Buy  (Rent to Own) means our customers can lease a car for a fixed period and then have the opportunity to make an offer to buy it at the end. You will need proof of income/affordabilty to qualify for a lease.


There are No Balloons / No Residuals on any of our leases and we have been known to accept offers of $1 for our cars. 

 

Low cost car rental is the same normal car rental but we don't require a credit card as long as we can direct debit the rental payments.


If you don't 'qualify' for a Rent to Own car Lease, you can still get a car under a Rental agreement and you may be able to qualify for a Lease later.

We are proud to serve customers in Melbourne, Victoria and Brisbane/Gold Coast Queensland.
