Things To Do Before Taking Delivery Of Your New Mazda

INSURANCE

Make sure you update your car's insurance policy. If they haven't already, our Business Managers can give you a market competitive quote for comprehensive motor vehicle cover.

It is really important to ensure that your car has insurance cover from the moment you sign for it, and drive on the road.

As long as your car is registered, your QLD CTP (Compulsory Third Party Insurance) will cover you for any injuries caused to other road users, if you're at fault in a motor vehicle accident, anywhere in Australia.

It is well worth considering Comprehensive Motor Vehicle Insurance - this covers you for accident damage, fire and theft, and damage to other people's cars or property. This cover typically extends to anyone else driving, as long as they meet age requirements, and are nominated prior with the insurer.

Most insurers will give you a 14 or 21 day period cover note, which will ensure you have insurance coverage from the start of your ownership.

At Mount Gravatt Mazda, we deliver thousands of cars a year, and our team will be able to also give you an obligation free, market competitive quote. Contact our Finance & Insurance team here.

ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE

Have you thought about roadside assistance? If you have it already with your previous car, don't forget Mazda Premium Roadside Assistance is now included with the purchase of all new Mazda vehicles* meaning you will be able to cancel your existing policy.

Each year, 1 in 3 drivers rely on roadside assistance to rescue them. Whether you have a flat battery, need a tyre changed, or need emergency fuel, you need the service to get you back on the road.

TOLL ROADS

Crossing any of Brisbane's Toll Bridges or going through the Tunnesl? Don't forget to change your registration, make & model details through Linkt so your new car will be clear on the tolls.

Regular toll road users should consider opening an account . If you drive on a toll road, and did not arrange payment before travel or pay your toll within 3 days, the vehicle’s registered owner will receive an unpaid toll notice from that toll road’s payment provider. This notice may also include additional fees. 

With a Linkt account, you’re good to go on Australian toll roads. With a range of accounts and passes, it's a convenient and hassle-free option to pay for your toll travel. Manage your account via an app, online or over the phone and access toll road networks for quicker journeys, safer travel and a smoother ride.

PLANNING TO SELL YOUR OLD CAR?

Planning to sell your old car? Mount Gravatt Mazda are always looking to buy more cars. If you haven't already, we can take a look at your current vehicle and give you an obligation free quote on how much it might be worth - it could save you a lot of time and effort to trade it in.

Selling your vehicle privately takes time, effort and will actually therefore cost you. Think about the steps you’ve got to go through: get a road worthy certificate and any repairs that are required to meet the safety standards. Then you need to advertise the car (online). Once you’ve got a potential customer you need to take them for a test drive, negotiate the price and finally transfer the registration over to them.
