Dob In A Backyarder

Unlicensed vehicle dealers are a serious problem in the used car industry. Operators make their living selling cars but pose as private sellers to avoid their legal obligations in relation to tax, stamp duty, record keeping and safety. Consumers that buy cars from these operators are deprived of their legal rights, including a cooling off period and statutory warranty which protects them if their car turns out to be a lemon.

Our 'dob in a backyarder' facility gives consumers and genuine dealers the means to report dodgy operators and help enforcement agents in the Office of Fair Trading to find them and shut them down.

The Office of Fair Trading has a lot of valuable information on their website in relation to buying a new or used car.
