How Does Using Red Plum Automotive Work


Think of Red Plum Automotive as yourhow-to-get-your-first-car-loan very own personalised car buying service no matter what brand of car you want to buy, whether it is a new car or a used car or where you live in Australia we can take care of all your car buying needs. The difference is in the detail. Many things can go wrong and do go wrong when you are buying a car. We all know a story about a bad car buying experience. Well we would like to think that we are changing that and this is a better way to buy a car.

Let’s get started

What do you need to do?

RPA works on your behalf. Once you know what car you want (helpful hints in the RPA Checklist but if that is not enough don’t worry our people are walking talking car knowledge banks, they can help) we then go to work for you. It doesn’t matter what make or model or where you live our job and passion is to get you the right car at the best possible price.

What does RPA do?

We send multiple blind quotes to all dealers in your area and surrounds, once all the quotes are back usually within 24 hrs we then negotiate on your behalf to find you the best priced car in the country!

What if you have a trade? Yes we can do that. We have access to a large network of car wholesalers around the nation who we can trade you car through and negotiate the very best price on that as well.

You want to sell your trade privately. Too easy, we are always happy to give independent advice. We have access to up-to-the-minute market analysis to benchmark your car to other sellers. We are happy to share our knowledge and understanding of cars and the market.


Knowing what you can spend is as important as what car you want to buy. We believe dealing with a qualified finance expert is critical at this point. We also believe dealing with a human who understands your personal circumstances makes a big difference. We have a business manager who can advise and organise finance with you while the deal is being done.

Nothing more to think about RPA places your order and co-ordinates the delivery, staying in contact with you every step of the way, to make sure buying a car remains one of life’s great pleasures.

Do you pay us for the service?

No. There is no direct cost to you. Our fee is paid by the dealer who wins your business after we have done all the negotiating. Once you feel ready to engage our service we will discuss with you in more detail and provide you with our terms of trade to ensure you are at all times happy for us to act on your behalf.

The choice is yours, there is no pressure from persuasive salesman, no weekend haggling at dealerships just knowledge and expertise from your own personalised brokering service that you can tap into.

So you not only get the best-priced car but our job is to advise and take care of you every step of the way. It is a total package, a one-stop-shop, where nothing is left to chance. We put you back in control, saving you time, money and stress.
