Our move is at least a year away however I'm such a worrier/planner that my Australia folder is already huge!
We're considering options for cars on arrival and from our budget we estimate we'll have about $10k to spend but will likely need 2cars, I know that is not going to get us much! I will be working and my husband will need one to get about with the kids.
We have considered a few options and are looking for some feedback and also some idea of what you all did when you first arrived.
We will be renting a car for at least 2weeks on arrival.
*With the $10k we are not sure wether to buy 2 okish cars for $5k each?
* Buy a newer type car for $7500, through research we've saw quite a few nice cars for that price. Holden viva, Holden barina, Kia rio and similar models/spec all between 2006-2008 models with low Kms.
* if spending 7500 then using the other $2K to buy a cheap run around that will only be used when I'm working to get to and from work and that's all.
*use the $10k and split it as a deposit on 2 brand new cars on finance (not too keen on this commitment)
*buy the 7500 car a cheap 2k car for me until we are settled, sell the 2k car and use that as a deposit for finance on a brand new car for me, therefore we'll be left with a 7500 car and a brand new car once we are settled.
