Foreign Used and Roll On / Roll Off
Used cars come in both local used and foreign used / roll on roll off models. Local used refers to cars that were originally sold through dealerships in Trinidad and Tobago, like Southern Sales, Diamond Motors, and other new car dealers. Foreign used cars refer to used cars that were originally sold mainly from Japan and Singapore. Because of their strict environmental pollution laws, cars older than 5 years are not allowed on their roads. So Trinidad and Tobago has become a major market for these countries’ exports of used cars.
The foreign used car market was opened up in the 1990s under the Basdeo Panday administration, and was locally referred to as “roll on roll off”. The oligopoly of the local car dealers was broken and poor Trinis could now afford a vehicle. This provided freedom and a boost in individual families’ quality of living.
The prices of foreign used cars could be as low as TT$20,000 for a vehicle that once may have cost TT$60,000.
At the same time, road traffic increased because the government did not build new roads.
Given the poor public transport system in Trinidad and Tobago, and the sometimes dangerous taxi and maxi taxi system, having a car is a necessity for a family in this country. So the foreign used car dealers are providing a real service for the poor and middle class of Trinidad and Tobago. That’s why people are looking for Trini cars for sale in large numbers online.
The spread of the internet has made buying a car very easy in Trinidad and Tobago. You can now view cars, send emails, use Facebook chats, compare prices, get reviews and feedback from your computer, laptop, or smartphone. Buyers and sellers can get directly in touch with each other, and many more people can get the opportunity to sell cars. It is a very competitive market. Buyers have a lot of choice. This did not exist before in Trinidad and Tobago.
Financing can sometimes be hard to get, but banks have been fairly flexible in their terms and interest rates. But on the lower end of the foreign used / roll on roll off scale, and also the local used market, you can get some very affordable cars so that you don’t have take bank financing. Or you can even use a credit card.
There are many automobile insurance companies that you can choose from as well. You need to make sure you get a good rate, and you can choose third party or fully comprehensive insurance.
The vehicle transfer tax is something you should take into account as well. Especially with some of the new roll on roll of vehicles. It can get quite expensive, so you need to factor that into your budget.
