Good time to buy F
or those who frequent the international markets, it would be hard not to be aware that the UK’S vote for Brexit last year had a significant impact on the currency rate, making for an ideal time to swoop in on the vehicle market. However, most people don’t want to know how well the UK economy is performing when spending their money overseas; they just want to know what is affecting what they’ll get.
Although unfortunate for those with investments in the country, the situation hugely benefits Kiwis looking to import one of their many, many high-end and classic vehicles — which are evidently even cheaper now that money has tightened in the local economy. The pound has declined consistently since the results became clear in June, and, after an initial sharp drop, the exchange rate has slumped and peaked with a persistent overall decline. This means that people wanting to buy pounds are finding the current levels particularly lucrative.
Daniel from Online Logistics told us, “It’s a great time to bring over the higher-spec examples of muchloved classics from the UK that we simply didn’t get in New Zealand.”
Online Logistics is able to put you onto trusted partners to source the right vehicle for you, and specializes in shipping vehicles to our shores. The company works to ensure that each client not only saves as a result of the current exchange rate but also gets the best condition vehicle possible for their purchase.
“Buying a vehicle sight-unseen from the net is a risky and stressful business, so we developed a chain from step one to end to provide that piece of mind,” Daniel explained.
Online Logistics recently opened a compliance centre in Auckland and can ensure that all vehicles imported meet the correct standards before and after they arrive.
