Selling and buying on consignment in Vic

Recommended Posts

Selling used cars on consignment is illegal for Victorian dealers (licensed motor car traders), but legal in NSW and most other states (e.g. legal in WA, QLD and TAS)

Does anyone know why it's illegal in Vic??

I have heard plenty of rumours about the Melbourne prestige dealers selling on consignment behind-the-scenes, and also service specialists. But it seems weird that it has to be clandestine. 

If I wanted to sell my car on consignment, couldn't I drive it to Sydney and park it with CTS on consignment, and if a Victorian buyer wants it the car then comes back down here? So in effect a consignment sale in Vic, but through a NSW dealer?
