Buying from Jemson Motors - NSW Syd

Gents,

I am located in Perth WA. There is a BM that I am eyeing at Jemson Motors Syd. In order for me to make an informed decision I was hoping for some feedback from Sydney locals on Jemson Motors.

Also, could anyone also please recommend a company that is happy to go to the dealership and inspect the vehicle for me? Never bought interstate before...

Thank you all in advance.

Don't forget that in WA if you haven't owned the vehicle for 12 months you can't register it.

Lol since when?
Last 4 cars all bought over east and taken over pits to get registered. When car comes into wa, it's considered unlicensed hence the need to take over the pits.

That's a little concerning. Is this factual?
Thanks

Here: But as another poster suggested, there may be loopholes.
I drove my car over from Queensland and when I transferred the Rego I had to show DoT proof I had owned the vehicle for more than 12 months.

http://www.transport.wa.gov.au/licensing/20881.asp

"The vehicle must meet the following criteria:
There is evidence that the vehicle is currently licensed in your name and has been for a continuous period of at least 12 months at the time of application (unless the vehicle is less than 12 months old).
We will accept any of the following issued in your name, dated more that 12 months ago:
vehicle licence or renewal document; both current and previous;
an offer to purchase, bill of sale or receipt;
an inspection receipt from a licensing authority or Approved Inspection Station; or
an original owner's hand book or similar, issued with a factory new vehicle."

That's a good rule. It's basically there for people that move to wa and being their car accross. They don't need to re licence it (provided they owned it for 12 months)

Others like myself who buy over east to save money will need to pass pits.

As others have indicated, this is completely false.

There are two scenarios:
1. If you have previously been living interstate for more than 12 months and have owned and registered the car interstate for more than 12 months, then you can bring that car to WA and just fill in paperwork to transfer the car to WA registration.
2. If the above is false then the car will need to be inspected by the pits and can then be registered in WA.

Personally, I think it's ridiculous that two different scenarios exists and they should make it consistent, but there you go anyway. No problems buying cars from over east and registering them here.

There is a bit of confusion as to whether you can drive a car on interstate plates in WA with a WA license. I've been told by other people that you can drive a car that you have bought from interstate, and is still registered in that state, for three months around WA, during or after which the rego needs to be transfered. However, when I rang up the DPI concerning this I was told that I was not allowed to drive an interstate registered car in WA, using my WA license, at all. That seems stupid though so I'm not sure what to believe.

^ got it. Thanks.
Their web site is really confusing, but the key is the bit about not needing the inspection.

I must say in moving to WA it seemed like moving to another country.

The clanger was on the receipt from when I surrendered my Queensland plates.
It said, "Reason: Eastern States Plates" That says it all.

Cheers.

As for driving the interstate car with WA licence;
The car is considered unlicensed. I have driven all my cars while waiting to take over the pits and never been bothered by cops. But it's simple, you get one of those 48 hour permits and that way ur covered. Even the pits guy made me buy a permit before he would inspect my car, even though I drove it there without one lol

Buying from Jemson Motors - NSW Syd

I loved the fact my heavily modded car could be re-rego'd without the need of a RWC / pits inspection. Yet my brand new car had to go over the Pitts experience....

OP, if you do proceed to purchase the car (google: Pre Purchase Inspections, arrange for an indi to complete job) all you need from the owner is a signed receipt with VIN/Engine #/Sellers address, details etc. if they leave the plates on the car then YOU can get the NSW rego refund.

I used CEVA to transport 3 cars from VIC to WA (by rail) who were very good & includes insurance. Once car arrives, arrange with WA department of transport for a 48hr move permit & see if you can get the car over the pits ($90 if car 3+ yrs old) within this period.

If car passes, you then have to pay 6 or 12 months rego AND the stamp duty for purchasing the car. Do not pay or worry about completing any NSW department of road/rego forms.

There is a stamp duty calculator on the website
