Salvation army car auction

In New Zealand, backpackers will mainly turn to vans or campervans. You can also prefer space type vehicles (the Toyota Estima being one of the most used vehicles by backpackers, for more information, do not hesitate to consult this rather complete discussion on the Estima on our forum) . Before making a decision, look at the state of the market and the prices of these different vehicles.Also prefer brands that are fairly well known in the region over brands that are little known or little available. If you had repairs to do (and it happens), it's better to be able to find spare parts than having to import them. As a result, prefer Toyota, Subaru and other Japanese brands to brands such as Renault which are less common and for which you will find it more difficult to find spare parts in the event of a problem.Also prefer discreet and non-motley vehicles of all colors salvation army car donation which will be nice, but not very discreet. Discretion significantly reduces the risk of burglary (and this is common!) But also avoids trouble with the authorities when you sleep in your van in places that are not necessarily appropriate.This is not a question of mechanics, but rather of fuel cost and administrative procedures. Indeed, in New Zealand, gasoline is significantly more taxed at the pump than diesel. The prices per liter of petrol and diesel are very different.However, diesel car drivers certainly pay less at the pump, but have to buy kilometers from the authorities, the Road User Charges that we told you about earlier in this file.RUC are therefore only payable by drivers of diesel vehicles. Depending on the model of your vehicle and its year, prices will vary around $ 40 and $ 50 per 1000 kilometers. On the windshield of your vehicle, the paper you are given indicates the number of kilometers for which you have paid taxes. When you reach this limit, you have to go to a Post Office and buy back miles. You will then be given a new paper.You will see that many vehicles for sale are fitted out for backackers. In this case, the vehicles have at least one bed at the rear, that is to say a mattress on a box spring made of wooden planks or composed of the rear seats of the vehicle. Other vehicles also have very practical storage spaces (drawers, cupboards, nets, etc.). The most equipped even have a fixed kitchen (most often you will find mobile gas cookers), a sink and the height of luxury, a kind of bathroom, but this is more often the case in rental vehicles.
