Looking to buy a second-hand caravan, boat or camper trailer for the school holidays

Spring is in the air and school holidays are fast approaching. It’s the ideal time to see the many wonders Australia has to offer and there’s no better way to explore it than in the great outdoors.

If you’re looking to buy (privately) a second-hand car, boat, caravan, or camper trailer for your next adventure, make sure you do a $2 PPSR search before you hand over any money.

A PPSR search can help protect you from buying a vehicle or boat that has money still owing and would be at risk of repossession.

For vehicles, caravans, camper trailers and boat trailers it will also tell you if it has been reported as written off or stolen.

To find out if a boat or jet ski has been stolen or badly damaged, you will need to check with your state or territory maritime authority or police.

A PPSR search can be completed online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

And even if you are not looking to buy these holidays, make sure you help your mates, family and colleagues and encourage them to complete a PPSR search before they privately buy a used vehicle.

To conduct a search, go to: Do a used car or vehicle search
