The NSW-based car dealership group OzCar have introduced an interesting new service for private sellers of cars called OzCar Connect.

You can list your car on the OzCar website for free. Yes, we know - that's not much of a selling point as there are already too many places to list your car.

However, when you list your car you get access to use any OzCar dealership as a safe place to meet potential buyers. You just need to request a time online, and you then get allotted a 1-hour time slot to meet your buyer. You can do this up to three times a week.

OzCar also offers some discounted services to sellers.

There's an $89 mechanical inspection report that can be a good selling point and save potential buyers having to arrange their own inspection (which means you can do it at your own convenience). This is much cheaper than the service offered by Carsales (Redbook Inspect) which costs $260, although you have to take your car to OzCar whereas Redbook comes to you. It's also a lot cheaper than an NRMA inspection (their prices have become a bit of a mystery but are at least two or three hundred dollars).

The other service is a car wash for $24, which isn't too bad a price to save you the trouble of doing it yourself before you meet a buyer.

OzCar's Sydney dealerships are based in the west and south-west so this service won't be of much interest to people in other areas of Sydney. They are located at Lansvale, Campbelltown, Parramatta and Penrith. They also have dealerships on the Central Coast and in Newcastle, and two regional locations at Dubbo and Wodonga.

It's unlikely that listing your car on the OzCar website will put your car in front of any more buyers than Carsales, Gumtree or Facebook Marketplace. Searching for cars requires people to enter their name, email and telephone number which will put a lot of people off. However, the extra services might be of interest to many sellers.
