Delivering on what we say every time.

Wholesale Cars Direct has grown over the years, originally selling the cheapest low-price cars in volume, hence the company name. Evolving to become New Zealand’s Premier independent dealership through developing a premier product. This has developed through specialised process’s from extremely strict purchasing standards. To FULL vehicle inspections, New Zealand radio stations working on all stereos, almost all Japanese cars having NZ stereos replaced. To the most ethical business practices we know of in the industry before & after sale.
We spend so you don’t have too. We try to deliver a product & experience that we would want buying our own car; our standards are our own…

With annual warrant of fitness’s, it is near impossible to go back to a dealer with faults after twelve months. Eliminate this by taking a little time out getting a full inspection. When it comes to vehicle condition & what is required by a dealer, we go above many of the guidelines provided by AA, MTA & NZTA. One example is tyres. They can have splitting, or serious cracked edges but can be considered as acceptable condition for a warrant of fitness. But this is not to the WCD standard, so when you walk around our dealership, you will notice many of our vehicles have a new set of tyres. We spend on average $30,000 a month on FULL mechanical inspections & tyres. We are happy to show any customer any cost spent on any cars, give compliance invoices, Japanese Auction sheets, the Full mechanical inspections. They are all readily available on every vehicle. It is for this reason we produced Buy Safe, to help the first car buyer mainly. With the hope that we may help a few people out there not get stung buying a lemon or save a few people some money would be great.

WCD has been going 20 plus years. This team of Gargz, Ashok, Ryan, Mose, Stu, Aj, & Scotty are the most honest, down to earth group of people we have ever had. It is so much fun working in a place where we can 100% trust & enjoy everyone. We would like to think you will as well. We don’t dress in suits. We wear comfortable tidy $200 Asics gym shoes if you look closely. This is to look after the teams’ legs as they walk so many steps every day. We also wear Boss jeans if you look even closer. The D is in the detail. We look after the team as we look after the cars as we look after customers who look at Team WCD as people, as we are people too. People who will try & help you as much as we can during & after the sale.

We do not have managers as everyone buys into the formula of excellence that we work towards daily. Again, the D is in the Detail, we can measure a 100%, we don’t accept or measure anything else. It’s a lot easier than you think to achieve when you maintain the standards we have.

Closing Sundays shows the WCD commitment to our families, everyone needs a break, money doesn’t buy a lot of things. Over the years we have learned closing Sundays has been the making of our children/extended families, we could never get this time back. Plus, our own energy to be able to clear the head for a day to be able to deliver on what we say is priceless.

Closing Sundays means our Saturday demand is very high. Due to this sometimes we can’t give some customers the time & service we would love too & pride ourselves on. On the off chance this was to happen to you, we apologise in advance.

Team WCD works relentlessly to deliver on what we say. Our repeat customers and out of town buyers have become our two largest customer bases. Nothing happens by chance at Wholesale Cars Direct.

Our proven process’s, team and ethics have led to these awards.
