Toyota Plate Clearance Sales – Should You Buy Now?

Is RIGHT NOW the Best Time to Buy a New Car? Toyota Plate Clearance Sales Sunshine Coast on Offer Now

If you’re looking for a bargain on your new car, a Toyota plate clearance or Toyota run out sale may be the perfect time to buy.  

The key to nabbing the best deal possible is understanding that the annual car sales calendar goes through a predictable cycle. Making yourself familiar with this cycle and being clear on what you’re looking for is a great way to get the car you want at a discount.  

Let’s first explore what run out sales and plate clearances are, then look at the best times in the annual car sales cycle to grab a bargain! 

What is a run out sale?

A model run out occurs when a new model arrives, pushing an older model out of the coveted ‘latest model’ space. If you have your eye on a particular car, this can be a fantastic time to get it for less.  

Models typically receive an update after three or four years, and a new model generally arrives every six or seven years.  

To find the best Toyota run out sale Sunshine Coast residents can access, you’ll need to investigate when your desired model was released and plan your purchase in advance.  

What is a plate clearance sale?

A plate clearance sale typically takes place close to the end of the year and into the beginning of the new year.  

A dealership will aim to sell the current year’s vehicles before they become ‘last year’s model.’ As a result, there are often excellent deals on offer for buyers who are ready to purchase at this time.  

Keep in mind that these are new vehicles at great value prices.  

When is the best time to buy a new car?

The best time to buy your new car will depend on the model you’re after, discounts and bonuses you’d like, and compromises you are willing to make. For example, would a great discount motivate you to buy last year’s model in January? 

While it is difficult to predict exactly when your desired model will be on offer for the best deal, these are the times of year to watch: 

December to February: Grab yourself a plate clearance bargain – there can be some excellent discounts and bonuses on offer at this time of year, as dealerships aim to maintain the most up-to-date models possible.  

End of Financial Year: As the end of the financial year approaches, dealerships are keen to lock in sales that go towards their end of year targets. This means there are usually sales on new vehicles at this time. You could pick up your dream car for a discounted price or take advantage of extended warranties and other extras like alloy wheels and other add-ons.  

Remember to check when the financial year ends for your preferred make of vehicle – Toyota and other Japanese makers often work according to the Japanese financial year, which begins on 1 April each year.  

Toyota has exceptional deals on offer now so if you are ready to purchase a new car, now is an excellent time to get a great deal.
