At Ballarat Car Sales, we think the best way to deliver a great experience is to get to know you and your story – and vice versa! So here’s a little bit about us and our humble story of why we love what we do.
We believe that buying a car should be an exciting experience. At Ballarat Car Sales, we want to change the perceptions you may have around used car dealerships. We promised ourselves when we started that "We will only sell cars that we would sell to our own family."
We carefully select all of our stock so that we are confident that it won't let you down. But it's not just about quality stock — we want to make the entire buying experience as easy and comfortable as possible. In fact, we want to impress you so much that you’ll be happy to recommend us to family and friends!
We understand our community wants and deserves reassurance when buying from a Ballarat car dealer. That’s why it's our mission to provide you with the very best car — complete with our very own 2-year warranty!
Ballarat Car Sales is extremely proud to be doing our part to offset our carbon footprint. We have partnered with ‘Fifteen Trees’ to support local vegetation and regeneration by having a tree planted for every car we sell, as well as every car we service. These trees are funded and donated by us, planted by local community and environmental groups and supplied by local plant nurseries.
We would like to thank all of our customers; your support enables us to continue this great work. We love to give back to our community!
