Negotiate your used car purchase with ease


Dealstrike provides a platform for safe and effective communication between buyer and seller. Forget the pressure of an in-person deal. DealStrike allows you to negotiate the deal online, on equal footing.

Dealstrike allows you to:

  • Include any deal conditions (eg. must come with new tyres, must come with new WOF).
  • Select whether you want a mechanical breakdown insurance for your vehicle.
  • Negotiate your car purchase with the seller.

Strike a deal

Once a deal has been struck, Fenda will automatically provide you with:

  • A sales and purchase agreement.
  • A comprehensive Vehicle Information Report; and if it passes our checks,
  • a voucher for the vehicle inspection at VTNZ.

Completing your vehicle purchase

If the car passes the VTNZ inspection and you’re still keen to buy the car, Fenda will manage the settlement process for you as well.

This includes:

  • Transfer of ownership through NZTA.
  • Sorting the financials (if you went through Fenda for a loan).
  • Arranging insurance (if you went through Fenda for insurance).

When to use Fenda to buy a used car

You can use Fenda whether you’re a cash buyer or if you need a loan to buy the car. Use Dealstrike at any stage of the process. You can get a loan quote first, or arrange a loan once the deal has been struck.


The DealStrike process is $299 as a cash buyer or $199 if using our loan service. If you use our loan service, you have the option to include our fee in your loan amount. Please note the finance company will charge you the agreed annual interest rate on this fee.
