Consumer Action is urging consumers to seek legal advice if they have entered into a rent to buy car agreement at 10-12 Plunkett Rd in Dandenong. This agreement may be with R.V. Investments (Aust) Pty Ltd (ABN 21 248 415 617), which also describes itself as ‘Rent and Buy Automotive’, or ‘RV Investments Pty Ltd’.
When entering into any car purchase, lease or rental agreement, it is important that you are clear on whether you will get to keep the car, and whether you will have to pay for things like insurance, repairs and registration. We recommend that you ask to take the documents away and get advice about them before you sign.
Victorians who want to know more about their rights when buying or renting a car can get free and independent legal advice by calling the Consumer Action on (03) 9629 6300 or 1800 881 020 between 10 am and 1pm Monday to Friday.
Consumers experiencing financial difficulty can also discuss their option with a free and independent financial counsellor by contacting our Money Help team on 1800 007 007.
