The Australian Business Review

At Stratton Finance we are committed to finding the best finance package for you, and we know the best finance package starts with the price of the car.

Buying a new car is an exciting time, but it can be tough to decide on the right model for you, find it for the best price, and get it into your driveway without falling out of love during the process.

If you're looking for a car buying experience with a difference, then you should try carconnect, it's a car concierge service that does all the leg work for you, is fully transparent in its pricing model and best of all allows you to take back your weekends.

There are 64 car makes available for sale in Australia, each with a large variant of models. Making the choice about what new car to buy is the bit that is going to take some time.

Once you've decided what your next new car is going to be, head over to or ask your Stratton consultant for a referral to get the process started.



Your carconnect consultant will collect all the details of your new car, such as your preferred colour, options and accessories before tendering out your request to deliver you three best price options.

You then get to choose the pricing that is best for you. It might be the one at the closest dealership, the cheapest price, the one in "To-die-for-fire-engine-red" or the one with the most features.

They can also take care of your trade-in as a separate transaction and obtain a minimum of 3 independent valuations. And of course if you need finance, Stratton is here to help. Because we partner with carconnect, you will have a seamless journey from application to settlement.

Then comes the hardest part – waiting for your new car to be delivered to your door! Yes, your car will be dropped off to you in your driveway with a full tank of fuel and complimentary floor mats!

Changing the way Australians buy cars

Buying cars this way isn't new and in the UK and the USA it is rapidly becoming the preferred way to buy a car. What is different about carconnect is the pricing structure.

carconnect prides itself on the transparency of its service and its pricing. carconnect doesn't add on any margin to the price of the car, you can be confident the price you are shown is the price from the dealer.

Instead carconnect charge a service fee of 1% of the vehicle price. Which is quite a bargain when you think of the savings you will make in time and money, letting them do the running around and haggling for you.

"I have purchased a brand new Ti Patrol for $13k less than I was quoted elsewhere. The price was impressive, the process was easy and seamless from a consumer perspective and honestly could not imagine buying a car another way ever again."

- Adam, carconnect customer
