Buying a Car, Truck, Campervan or Motorhome from AutoRent

AutoRent are a Tasmanian car, campervan and commercial vehicle rental company and regularly have near new ex-rental vehicles for sale across Tasmania including offices in Hobart, Launceston, Devonport and Burnie. We use no haggle pricing; so that everyone gets the same value because we sell, 30, 50 or 100 vehicles which are identical in model and age. A median price is established by “the market” and individual cars are priced higher or lower than the median price according to the distance travelled. This gives you a choice as to what price to pay.

It is our aim to treat you as our guest, not as a mere target. We know our cars are better value for their age and kilometres than similar ex-rental outlets. In most cases there are colour choices too.

Balance of New Car Warranty

Where applicable we will transfer the balance of any new car warranty to you when you purchase an AutoRent ex-rental vehicle which provides additional peace of mind with your purchase.

“Buying a car from AutoRent is a different experience. We genuinely enjoy meeting people as part of our normal rental work. Our ex-rental fleet prices are fixed according to a formula. (It’s good to know you don’t have to hassle us!).

Everyone gets the same great value. We value your trade-in professionally. We know it’s like a member of your family. We try to create a “win win” situation and give you the best value we can. Perhaps you know someone who has bought a car from us?

We’ve sold over 9,000 of our fleet cars since 1991. If you’re thinking of updating your car, please feel welcome to come and talk to us. No pressure - we promise!”

KIND KILOMETRES – here’s what we mean:

It’s firm knowledge that cars which travel greater distances from each cold start-up, will last and run better for longer. This is mainly due to the cleansing action which takes place when the engines’ lubricating oils reach their optimum operating temperature. Optimum oil temperatures are not reached until the engine has been running for generally at least 30 minutes after a cold start. Oils take much longer to heat than the coolant that provides warm airflow from your heater. Short runs to the supermarket, schoolyard or office are generally insufficient to heat the oil sufficiently to effect cleansing.

As is normal for car engines, water vapour, condensation and contaminants resulting from engine combustions, form, fall or get washed into the sump where they mix with the lubricating oils there. These contaminants degrade the effectiveness of the engine oils in their quest to minimise wear.

Our visitors’ cars are generally used for day journeys of some distance, bringing the oils to optimum temperatures which allows for the cleansing action to take place. Even if our visitors stop for sightseeing here and there, for the most part, the engine’s oils will stay warm and return to optimum operating temperatures promptly when they move on.

So… longer journeys and optimum temperatures with the engines settling into a rhythm is generally the norm for our cars – encouraging longer life and better performance. In conjunction with our regular professional maintenance and servicing of course!

“I’m proud of the way AutoRent maintains its cars, and most still have plenty of new car warranty. It’s a great way to buy a car, while avoiding huge depreciation in buying a new car. We also take trade-ins. Over 25% of AutoRent’s fleet sales involve a trade-in, so you are most welcome to an obligation-free valuation on your car.”
