Trading in your old car used to be a tense process, fraught with complicated paperwork and awkward offers. That’s no longer the case, especially with 4Guys Autobarn, who will trade in almost anything to help you get into the vehicle of your dreams.
“We have traded some bizarre things and people are usually surprised at what we will consider or even take,” says Sales Manager Corey Bell-Derikx.
If you’ve driven past 4Guys Autobarn’s new premises on Arthur Porter Drive, Te Rapa, you’re bound to have swooned over some of the vehicles they have on offer.
Being one of New Zealand’s largest used car sales yards, they have a stock of more than 400 quality vehicles, including American muscle, sports cars, hatchbacks, sedans, wagons, SUVs, 4x4s and utes.
Corey Bell-Derikx says 4Guys will give any customer the opportunity to present any vehicle to consider for a trade in - and they mean any vehicle.
“It can just take some people thinking outside of the square to get into something they have dreamed about since they were young”, says Mr Bell-Derikx.
“We have traded boats, motorbikes, jet skis, Canam recreational vehicles and motorhomes.
“Whether people want to trade in multiple vehicles, we will consider any situation. It just takes a bit more time to value each one. We recently traded three vehicles on a vehicle worth in excess of 120,000 but by using those vehicles he only paid a small sum of cash.”
Mr Bell-Derikx says he and the team at 4Guys encourage customers to bring in any of their old ‘toys’ they are willing to part with.
“In those situations we just need to know the history of the vehicle and then we will consult specialists in those fields.”
“If someone wants to get into their dream car, boat or motorhome, bring us any situation so we can consider it.
“It can usually be completed within the day just using identification numbers and photos.”
