Hello readers

We hope you had a fantastic school-term vacation and the roads you travelled were good.

Recently in 2018 DABAS published and had distributed its complimentary car-buyer’s help information brochure for the car-buying public, gaining new inquiries about our services, with car-buyers wanting to know more. With this in mind, for your information, this week’s DABAS blog post will walk you through a general-in-nature demonstration of a DABAS car-buying assistance package.

We hope you find it an interesting read and an example of how DABAS services can save you both time and money  now and in the long run!

DABAS services the inner suburbs and metropolitan region of Melbourne, we can even come to you if needed! with pre-booked appointments.

Here we go

So you have decided to update your car?

Question:  How does it work – you may ask.

Answer – A typical general example menu package of a DABAS service is outlined below.

You personally decide AFTER STAGE ONE how many of the following stages you may require DABAS’s assistance with to complete your car-buying journey.

To begin:  You contact DABAS for your initial phone consultation to discuss your general new or used-car needs and budget.  Within this discussion – DABAS – together with you – will assess if any of DABAS’s services can be of help to you, whilst saving you time and money in your car-buying journey … now and in the long run!

If it is jointly decided that DABAS can be of help in your car-buying journey a consultation/meeting of choice appointment is *booked and arranged. DABAS offers flexible personal assistance to clients on their car-buying journey tailored in stages to suit their individual budgetary needs.

DABAS services can be delivered in a vast variety of ways, including – but not limited to –  phone consultation/s, Zoom meetings, research emails, research links, LMCT yard email link referrals, face-to-face meetings at a car-yard/s, in the cafe at an LMCT car-yard or at the café of a leading Melbourne automotive auction house; even in your home if required. The choice is totally yours pending personal needs and the urgency timelines of being behind the wheel of your next car. DABAS services are offered flexibly – as stages in a journey – you pick what stage of your journey you may need DABAS’s assistance – maybe?, the full journey, or – just vehicle selection/clarification?, or – just a car-yard buffer zone, help with the yard process?

We can even come to you if needed, meeting with you at a car-yard for a personal consultation, discussing and listening asking detailed questions to assess your personal needs and expectations of your next car.

At your selected stage/s DABAS listens/communicates to the requirements needed of your next car, whilst taking notes and asking questions, suggesting options – relevant to your needs whilst adhering to your communicated budget – for your consideration, which could include brochures, reviews and owners’ feedback. Highlighting any points of interest within the vehicles that could save you time and money now and in the long run.

# Please note – A $185.00 client account research and establishment – STAGE ONE fee – is required in advance of our first consultation for new first-time customers.

There is no sales pressure from DABAS – demonstrated by – After your DABAS client account is established – each stage is then invoiced individually prior to the next stages progression – hence – there is no pressure to go any further stages than you may need or desire, it’s quite simple, each DABAS stage service attracts a separate individual fee for the desired stage -pending location/service-time/travel time: which means there are no budgetary surprises for you – or ballooning bills.  Please see more information on our fees page here

 Some other general EXAMPLE stages are listed below

 > Soon after your first consultation, a personalised viewing and test-drive short-list will be compiled and passed on to you.

> At this stage of your journey, you decide what car/s you would like to personally view and test drive. DABAS can source your choice/s, and then accompany you to the car yards throughout this process discussing the pros – and – cons of the choices, if required, for a modest fee (POA).

> Once your choices have been reviewed, driven and compared,  you make the final decision on which car to purchase and any added extra options you may want added.  DABAS can assist in this process if required, for a modest fee (POA).

>Your selected vehicle is purchased. DABAS can assist in this process, being at your side, negotiating with sales staff on your behalf if required,  for a modest fee (POA).

>Your selected vehicle is picked up or delivered. DABAS can assist in this process if required, for a modest fee (POA).
