After a little bit of advice (don't know if this is the right section of the forum so please move it if I am wrong).
I can't decide whether I am better of renting a car (total price about AUD$2750) or buying a cheap one of ebay and then picking it up.
The benefits / disadvantages I have thought of are as follows:
- Renting $2700
(Inclusive of Insurance, Unlimited KM's, No need to pay for any repair work)
- Buying $2500
(I would have to buy insurance and repair if neccesary, plus pay for taxes however I would be able to sell to a dealer once I reach new york and hopefully spend about $500 in total)
What do you guys think. I definetly understand it would be abit of a gamble buying but potentially it would work out well. Is it possible for a non-us resident to register a car? What taxes are payable?
Thanking you in advance,
