Finding your perfect Car Next Door match

Finding your perfect Car Next Door match

Need a zippy car to run a few errands around town? Shifting all your stuff (including the kitchen sink) and need something that can handle more junk in the trunk? Or maybe you need something with enough room for the whole family, fur babies included.

Whatever it is you need to get done, there’s a local car that’s up for the job.

Because Car Next Door cars belong to real people, they’re equipped with everything real people need.

And with over 1600 cars available across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Newcastle and the Gold Coast the right one is out there and waiting for you.

Follow these simple steps to find your perfect match.

Plan ahead

Make sure you know exactly what you need for this trip and what added extras will help you get there. A Smart Car might be cute and cool, but it’s not going to help you shift anything much bigger than a bedside lamp. And even though you have your heart set on a ride in that sporty convertible down the road, it’s only got two seats and you’re planning a roadtrip for the whole family.

Make filters your friend

Now that you know what you need, it’s easy to find exactly the right car for you by using the filters on our search page.

Only drive auto and need enough seats for the whole crew? Looking for a car with a child seat and AUX input so you can rock out to The Wiggles all day long? Or maybe you need a pet-friendly SUV with roof racks?

You can filter by transmission type, number of seats, vehicle type, and amenities such as air conditioning, child seats and pet-friendly cars. Be as specific as possible and we’ll show you all the cars near you that match your requirements.

Read the description carefully

Now that you have your list of potential matches, it’s time to get to know them a little and find out which one is just right for you.

Read the car’s description carefully and see if it’s got the thumbs up from previous borrowers by checking the reviews.

If you’re unsure about any of the car’s features, just get in touch with the owner to double check. You can do this from the car’s profile page.

Once you’ve found the one it’s time to click ‘book now’ and make a date with your perfect match! And if you find your car soul mate, scheduling a second date is as easy as hitting ‘book now’ for round two.
