What are ORCs?

22 June 2020

Are you comparing prices on new vehicles, but stumped by what +ORC – on-road costs – means? You’re not the only one. Although extra charges for on-road costs are standard among vehicle sales, what you get for your fee varies. Each dealership will have their own standards and price, so we’re here to help you break down what the heck ORC means and what your on-road costs include at Autoworld Timaru.

What do on-road costs include?

The on-road costs are in addition to the MRP on each vehicle. Each dealership has different prices for their on-road costs, but rest assured that they are unavoidable and typically non-negotiable. Autoworld Timaru goes above and beyond, making sure your new vehicle is road-ready, legal, and eye-catching.

Our on-road costs include:

  • New vehicle registration
    • Costs vary based on fuel type and engine size
  • Road user charges for diesel vehicles
  • 3 years WOF
  • Floor mats
  • Professional groom
  • Pre-delivery inspection

On-road costs at Autoworld Timaru

All non-sale new vehicle pricing is ‘MRP’ (Maximum Retail Price) and excludes on-road costs unless stated as ‘driveaway’.

  • New petrol vehicles are $900, inclusive of GST
  • New diesel vehicles are $1,200, inclusive of GST
    • This includes 3,000km of road user charges

What about used and demo vehicles?

Used and demo vehicles have ‘driveaway’ prices, meaning there are no extra costs to get the vehicles road-ready.
