We source new and used cars for individuals and organisations, by dealing with an established network of car dealerships across Australia.

We have the ability to work on your behalf across all brands in the market, regardless of whether it is a high end luxury car, city run-about, family sedan, work utility or commercial van, our unique dealer network stretches across virtually all brands.
If your preference is a used car we are also able to source this for you. Holding our own dealers licence enables us access to preloved trade-ins and used cars from many sources.Let us help you find your new car ...Enquire now 7

I would like to say a huge thank you to Terry Kerr of Red Plum Automotive. My wife has supported me for a very long time & particularly a hard 5yrs. Working extensive hours & a very tough financial position, throughout this time the only wish from her was that when things were better we could look at her dream car a Lexus IS250. Today her dream came true.
Terry thank you so much for all your help. Your professionalism, service & follow-up has been unquestionably the best we have experienced. We have no hesitation in referring you to family, friends & clients. Thank you for being part of a dream & making it a reality!

I have recently had the pleasure of purchasing a vehicle using the services of Chris Lee of Red Plum. Along with operating a corporate fleet of 6 luxury vehicles I am a car enthusiast and had been searching for a special vehicle for a period of time. After contacting Red Plum and giving Chris specific details on the vehicle I was seeking, Chris had identified two examples within 48 hrs, one in WA & one in QLD at prices much sharper than I had been able to obtain for other vehicles that I had previously viewed. I ultimately selected the vehicle located in WA and Red Plum arranged for inspections on the vehicle, supplied photos, managed the freighting of the vehicle and registration in Queensland. I was kept up to date with regular contact on the vehicle’s progress.
I have since received delivery of the vehicle and to say that I am happy with the car would be an understatement. I recommend the services of Red Plum for anyone seeking a quality vehicle, good service at a sharp price.

I picked up the car yesterday & it is beautiful to drive. Once again, I would like to thank you for finding the car, doing all the negotiations & providing me the best deal. I commend you for your excellent customer service & professionalism. I have already started to recommend you to my friends, family and online forums…I hope you don’t mind me doing this. I wish you all the best & keep up the good work. Thanks again Chris!

I had not used a brokering service to purchase or sell a vehicle….but after dealing with Christopher Lee at Red Plum Automotive I will only go this way in the future! Chris was efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly; he got me a terrific deal on a new car and sold my old car for way more than I had imagined. And best of all for me - the whole process took a few phone calls and a handful of emails. Our old car collected, new car delivered - done!

Red Plum Automotive was great in helping find which car I wanted and at the right price. I had little time for researching the car that I wanted due to my job commitments, but Terry at Red Plum Automotive helped in every way. I am truly happy with the service and professionalism that was shown to me during my search. Thank you Terry and Red Plum Automotive, you found the car that I wanted

Red Plum Automotive gained a great deal on a new car for us while we were overseas. Chris & Katie provided full & speedy communication at all times. We appreciated their knowledge & professionalism throughout the purchasing process.

I spent weeks searching for prices on my Mercedes-Benz ML and thought I had done well with the pricing. My brother-in- law recommended Chris and his team at Red Plum Automotive. The results were way better than I had accomplished on my own. Whilst the financial results were impressive, the courtesy and professionalism in which they provided their services, and how they kept me informed throughout the entire process was standout. The Red Plum team displayed a sincere and genuine desire to do everything possible to make the experience a great one for me. I have referred so many of my own friends back to Red Plum Automotive already. Highly recommend.

I would like to personally thank you for your assistance with the purchase of my new BMW 520D with M Sport package today and your support through the process in the past week.
A good friend of mine recommended you to me based on his past experiences and I will be sure to recommend you to my family, friends and business associates. Your professional and prompt service is to be recognised as the best I have encountered within the car industry, you were open, honest, and reliable and in my opinion delivered a great result.

I purchased a new Mercedes ML350 from Red Plum Automotive and I couldn’t be happier. They were a breeze to deal with and I would not hesitate to recommend their services.
Mercedes-Benz ML350 / QLD
We highly recommend Chris and Red Plum Automotive. We outlined our requirements to Chris and within 2 days he had successfully negotiated a great trade-in price for our current vehicle, and had organised the purchase of our new vehicle with the dealer. Chris went above and beyond with all our requests and nothing was too much for him. We will be returning to RPA when it is time to purchase another vehicle. Thank you Chris for making our experience buying a new car an enjoyable one.

We were amazed with the service. Within 24 hours Terry had sourced vehicles which were our desired cars, but subject to trade-in and we were only expecting to be able to order one and settle for a smaller second vehicle. Terry organised a better trade-in than any dealer had offered before and we ended up with better cars than we could ever want. The whole process of buying a car was made so easy, I am amazed the majority of car buyers are not using them. The company name could not be more accurate of the service they provide: It was SWEET!

Dear Chris (and Katie), Thanks for the wonderful service you provided to source my new car. Great price and smooth, easy process. Big thanks also for going above and beyond to get the car delivered to Ipswich. That really made my week!

Huge thank you to the amazing team at Red Plum Automotive. This is our second time utilising their service and again they have exceeded our expectations!! Can not recommend them more highly! They sourced our new car within 2 days and the offer they had for us was a no brainer. They take the stress and hassle of looking for a new car out of your hands. Making it an enjoyable, exciting experience instead of a tiring one. We were also recommended to a financial broker who made life so much easier. Amazing, reliable, efficient, professional and highly knowledgeable in everything they do. See you again in another few years.
Kia Carnival / QLD
Thanks to Terry for making the process of purchasing a new car all the more easier! It was a smooth, hassle-free process and I didn’t have to do anything to get the car I wanted, except tell them which car it was. Will definitely deal with Red Plum again and recommend to all.

Dear Chris & Terry, Thank you so so much for organising my new car. It took out all the worry and hassle of doing it myself, and was such a joy to simply have a new car delivered without lifting a finger…I could enjoy going for a surf while you guys did the hard yards! I have recommended your services to all my friends if they happen to be in the market for a car.
Thanks again for my new surf mobile.
Toyota Yaris YRS / NSW
When we looked at finding another vehicle it was somewhat overwhelming with the vast amount of vehicles on the market, & it is impossible to get to them all so we contacted 2 brokers. You were the one that made contact…we are still waiting on the other! We are more than happy with the vehicle. There were a few small hitches with the dealer that you overcame on our behalf, your communication was as good as good ever gets. You also found an independant buyer for our trade-in vehicle that assisted us greatly. We have no hesitation in recommending you to save the time & expense of travelling around the country to inspect first hand.
