The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2019-08-27T01:11:37Z Why people are riding Scooters in Australia like never before. 2019-08-27T01:11:37Z why-people-are-riding-scooters-in-australia-like-never-before This year has seen a few notable industry reports released about transport and infrastructure in Australia that highlight interesting trends to our buying behaviour when it comes to cars and bikes. Scooter sales are the only growing category in Australia with 18% volume increase as people try to beat the traffic chaos and change their working habits; The 2019 Infrastructure Audit revealed Sydney will have the most clogged roads in the near future even though billions are being spent to upgrade them. LEK Consulting has reported up to 69% of household transport costs are going to private car ownership with few Australians able to own one as we head towards 2050.  There has been the steady growth of part-time employment in Australia climbing to nearly 40% of all jobs as of 2017, Australia now has the 3rd largest share behind Netherlands and Switzerland. The average age of vehicles has increased to 10.2 years. The FCAI reported that annual vehicle sales for the first half of 2019 continue to show a decline of around 8% year over year across all categories and States in Australia. Motorcycle sales for the first half of 2019 down by 17% and the only category in Australia that has shown growth was Scooters with an 18% increase with Honda leading the way with nearly 40% share of the segment. So what does this all mean? The economy is driving a lot of change with the current record low interest rate levels trying to spur things along. The quality of cars has improved in the last 10 years with less of a need to upgrade due to their durability. People’s lifestyles are changing, the big Aussie dream house looks more like a unit or an apartment these days with a million dollar mortgage to go with it. Although home ownership has dropped by 10% in the last 25 years with 70% of people renting. At the same time traffic continues to get worse with infrastructure upgrades feeling more like a band-aid solution rather than a huge step forward as population numbers continue to grow. Meanwhile the changing nature of available work opportunities continues to move towards more flexible work forces that are either transient or able to work remotely in an attempt to reduce costs. The rise of Uber Eats, Menulog and the newly launched shift-based jobs platform Freeboh makes it even easier for people to find these emerging job opportunities that are typically paid less than a full time job role. Then of course we have the continued growth of rental and subscription services making it easier for people to manage their spending with low weekly or monthly payments. Paul Wojtek, Director of Sydney start-up Scootering www.scootering.com.au commented. “People are changing their lifestyle, way of working and spending and it is the very reason I started our scooter rental service. I could see this shift in consumer behaviour and felt the timing was right. Lots of cities across Asia have relied on scooters for many years now so maybe it was inevitable for Australia. People are looking for an economical mode of transport with low cost of ownership, no messy contracts and an easy way to beat the traffic too” The FCAI results for Scooter vehicle growth in Australia tends to highlight a large shift in how people are using transport for personal and business use. With driverless metro train systems in operation, lots of discussion about autonomous transport becoming a reality with our roads getting more and more congested, could we see the continued decline in car usage with even more restrictions being placed by authorities to push us to use other methods of transport like scooters? 1st Choice Towing Sydney - Setting a New Standard for Emergency Towing 2019-08-23T06:06:02Z 1st-choice-towing-sydney-setting-a-new-standard-for-emergency-towing-1 When it comes to reliable Towing Services, there is one name that comes to countless Sydney-siders’ minds: 1st Choice Towing Sydney.

Dash cams — or car dashboard cameras — are increasingly being used in vehicles to insure drivers against adverse outcomes on roads and in car parks. Dad’s love their cars so if they are involved in a crash and they weren’t at fault, dash cam footage can be provided to the insurance company to prove it. Even if his car is hit in a car park, whether he was there or not, the dash cam can record the event. Using a dash cam is like having an extra insurance policy and can protect the affected driver’s finances. It’s also a big time-saver as the evidence allows the insurance company to chase the other car’s owner for compensation. DriveSense Ranger dash cams produce crisp clear video recordings, and audio if desired, including other information such as location, date, time and speed. Leading Australian safety products company, Andatech, has introduced new DriveSense Ranger dash cams that use the latest generation technology and provide exceptional camera quality. G-sensor detects vibrations Ensuring the video footage is protected when needed is crucial, which is assisted by the gravity sensor (G-sensor) in the device. DriveSense dash cams have a built-in G-sensor that uses indicators such as vibrations and sudden jolting motions to alert the user to protect the recorded file so it cannot be deleted or overwritten. The G-sensor sensitivity can be set to low, medium, high or switched off completely. A film file can also be manually selected to lock or protect, which is then saved in a separate folder in the microSD card and cannot be deleted. Andatech’s two dash cam models comprise the DriveSense Ranger Dash Cam with WiFi and GPS ($249) and the DriveSense Ranger Duo Dash Cam ($299), which has both a front and rear dash cam with GPS. DriveSense features Features of the DriveSense Ranger dash cams include: * Recording in high resolution super HD 1080p at 30 frames per second to ensure it will pick up details such as licence plate numbers. * 1.5 or 2-inch LCD colour screen that is lightweight and compact without blocking the field of view. * A built-in accelerometer that records the speed of the vehicle while driving and is shown in every video recording. * 150-degree wide angle view with six-layer glass and infrared vision that provides an excellent field of view, comfortably covering up to five lanes of traffic. * 4x digital zoom to check details of licence plates, road signs and street names and large f/2.0 aperture, which provides vivid recordings under low light conditions and clear images even at night. * Ability to record videos in 3, 5 or 10 minute segments or continuously. Once the memory is full, the dash cam will start writing over older files seamlessly (excluding locked files). DriveSense dash cams have auto start up and shut down and users can enable or disable motion detection. Following the easy installation, it can connect directly to a smartphone for viewing and downloading files using the free DriveSense app. Andatech’s dash cams provide crisp clear recordings, full functionality and connectivity for an easy, seamless user experience.

He has been racing motorbikes since the age of 3, before moving to Karting at 9. With a Pole, a Win and a Overall Podium at all events this year Broc currently sits first in the Championship as he hunts down the 2019 Kumho Super 3 series. In Year 11 at school, his passion for motorsport extends to his education, where he is currently completing a school-based apprenticeship as a Mechanic which includes working on his own car that is run by Paul Morris Motorsport and kept onsite.

They are known to support the best athletes and it is an honour to be standing alongside other ambassadors throughout racing and all the other sports they support," said Broc Feeney. "My dream is to make it to the Virgin Australia Supercars Championship and become Champion there, but also look towards NASCAR in the US. I have the determination, commitment and strong will to win but also appreciate that it takes a team for such dreams to be realised and that is where having the support of Boost Mobile cannot be overstated.” "Karting taught me so much about racing at an early age, and I follow all things Motorsport, from SuperCars to Formula 1 and MotoGP. I’ve loved every minute of competing locally and internationally against the world’s best. It has shown me that to succeed I need to push the limits every time and leave nothing on the table.” IMAGERY: For imagery and videography, please go to: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/cy1fbigumz1xf1c/AAA6JhBmc7fEQ_26W6eSblmha?dl=0 About Boost Mobile Since humble beginnings in August 2000, we’ve become a leading youth mobile brand.

Where To Sell Your Vehicle The First Step is to research the different methods of selling. The main four are private ads (online or offline,) auctions, cash-for-cars type companies or part exchange with a dealer. The latter two will be a lot quicker but may mean accepting lower offers, the first two take more effort but will give you more control over the price and negotiations. There are 100s of outlets online for advertising cars, which means you can reach more people, but also makes a choice a little overwhelming and creates a lot of competition. Try multiple sites and don't rule out traditional methods such as an ad in the local paper or a sign in the car, varying the advertising can only help reach more people. Read More : Sell Your Scrap Vehicle To An Auto Dismantler 2. How Much To Ask For?  Again, research is critical, use the resources you found in step 1 to check what sort of prices cars similar to yours are being offered at, or more importantly selling at. The bible of car valuations was always The Parker's Guide, but there are now hundreds of website ready to give you an instant estimate.   3. How To Prepare? Appearances are essential in advertising, and it's worth taking time to make sure that the car is spick and span, even spending a little bit of money on getting it professionally cleaned or valeted. Make sure your photos are useful as they can be, there are some very poorly taken photos out there, either too far away, also close up, no interior shots, poorly lit etc.  Think about what you'd like to see when buying a car yourself, Also, in the same way, you paint a house neutral colours when selling it, keep the car as clear and uncluttered as possible, so buyers can more easily imagine it being theirs. Have the vehicle registration documents, MOT History and service history to hand to make potential buyers as confident as possible that they're getting good, and more importantly, safe deal. Read More : Five Tips to get rid of your old car 4. How To Negotiate? Once you've done your research into the value of your car, try and fix a price in your mind of how low you are willing to go in negotiations. If you also went down the route of getting a valuation from a professional used car dealer, you'll know how much flexibility there is between what price you want and the minimum you can expect. Set the price you're willing to go to at about 80% of the asking price. Also bear in mind that when negotiating, especially with professional traders, they will use every defect to try and lower the asking price; scratches, dents and stains, etc. No matter how minor, it's worth fixing these small imperfections, because ultimately they can add up. On the flip side, make a list of positive features your car has. If it has a full-service history or relatively few owners, this could make a big difference to your negotiations. Unless you need a quick sale, don't be afraid to turn down offers, but remember used cars are buyer's market, there is a lot of competition and a lot of competition and a lot of choices.

It should go without saying not to hand over the keys or any documents until the funds have been transferred, but it is the essential part!   Fill out the change of details in the logbook, notify The DVLA, DMV or other local vehicles licensing agency, hand over the service history record, inspection certificates, spare keys, documentation and any other accessories! This Step is crucial, because even after the money and contract have changed hands, you may still be responsible for the vehicle if the documentation is not in order. Also remember to keep hold of any correspondence with the buyer, as well as the pictures and descriptions of the car. Even with a private sale, the buyer is protected by consumer rights, and you should be able to demonstrate the terms of the agreement.

How a Car Removal Service is driving sustainable success in Queensland 2019-07-03T23:40:59Z how-a-car-removal-service-is-driving-sustainable-success-in-queensland One tiny company, Top Cash 4 Cars, that provides Car Removal Services Brisbane wide, has both understood this reality and embedded it into their business strategy for 2019/2020. Top Cash 4 Cars is a Car Removal Service that pays Queenslanders to remove cars that their insurance companies have either written off or deemed ELV – End of Life Stage. When a car reaches its ELV (End of Life Stage), it’s Total Cost to Run (TCR) goes up considerably.  When TCR exceeds Value (the price people will pay for the vehicle) – the market abandons it and a Cash for Car dealer, or Car Removal Service is called in, to take possession of the vehicle or the fleet it belongs to. Environmentally driven Top Cash 4 cars, a Brisbane-based auto-recycler, has always put plants before profits. A spokesperson for the company is clear what drives the company – sustainability. “Every moving part in a car, Jeep, Ute, van or truck – can be recycled. And even if it can’t be recycled, it can be put to bed in a way that is non-toxic or harmful to the environment.” Specialised, eco-friendly processes Over the decade it has been in business, Top Cash 4 Cars has developed many specialised processes to minimise the damage old car parts with fluid and grease in them pose to Queensland’s natural habitat. “Every part is cleaned and degreased with special non-toxic fluids before they are either recycled and sold to second-hand car parts dealers or retired to the Earth.” Paint is a hazard Old cars use paint that is toxic because it contains lead in it. The Australian Department of Environment and Energy is clear about the hazards lead in paint can cause. According to them – “Lead is a toxic substance that can affect people of any age. It is especially harmful to children, pregnant women and unborn babies. Lead accumulates in your body, so even small amounts can pose a health hazard over time. Some auto paints, particularly those on older vehicles, are high in lead and can be a health hazard. There have been cases of children suffering lead poisoning from playing in soil contaminated by auto paint dust.” Top Cash 4 Cars understands the hazards old car paints pose to human and animal health and so strip cars of toxic paint using biofriendly solvents – before they recycle the metal. They buy cars of all makes, models and conditions. When you need a Cash for Cars sale in Brisbane, Top Cash 4 Cars are the ones you need to call. Sustainability is what drives us – not mere profits, says their business-owner To dispose off your car in a way you can be sure is eco-friendly, please contact Top Cash 4 Cars now on 0470 653 704. A2Z Car Removal’s 60 Second Deals Sell Your Car in a Minute 2019-06-26T22:02:21Z a2z-car-removal-s-60-second-deals-sell-your-car-in-a-minute There is an absolute lack of resources for the car owners that want to get rid of their vehicles sooner, as most car dealerships do not offer any kind of rebates of benefits for the car owners in Auckland. A2Z Car Removals is doing their best to help Auckland residents to get rid of these vehicles. As a professional car buying firm, they have tried endeavors with their customer care system.  While speaking to one of the spokespeople, who also happens to be the Head of Customer Care Services, we got important insights on how they could make this possible.  “We are not scared of getting duplicated. There is no way you can copy our level of expertise, and the kind of training our employees go through.”, said Courtney on being asked about their business model.  “I see it as an exciting opportunity for myself. This is what I have been training for almost half my adult life, I should be able to do it. Evaluating and assessing a vehicle can be tough if you are unsure of the criteria that will be used to decide. But we have our own estimates that suit industry standards.”, said Sameer from the customer service team.  As reported, the company will continue its car removal services in the city of Auckland. These services have been elementary in changing the way car owners in Auckland get rid of their unwanted vehicles.   Due to high demand and continual requests from customers all around the city, A2Z Car Removals’ top management has decided to keep their functions running throughout the week. Due to high demand on all days, and people who might need a towing in the weekends, they have decided to keep availability open on all seven days of the week.    However, the company has been reported to have taken action against fraudulent car owners. “We need to protect our image. Sometimes we get customers who don’t have the car keys, nor the papers, nor their own identification. We cannot buy cars from such customers because we know it might not be their own car.”, says one of the top management members.    The firm has also given its approach towards car removal a twist in recent years. Their focus is now on building some social impact. Social impact is now an evolving concept and has been considered an important aspect of business in recent times. The focus on the creation of social impact intertwined with the profit-making aspects of the business is what will make any business successful as well as ethical. A2Z Car Removals being a car recycling company is looking to improve their processes eventually and transform their business.    “Our business is already very environment-friendly. We are not trying to save the environment, but we ware trying to do as much as we can to prevent the landfills from becoming worse. All vehicles we buy are recycled, reused for car parts or resold to a car buyer. We are eliminating car waste, and it is profitable to do so!”, said the Co-Founder at A2Z Car Removals.    Beginning the revolution of instant co-creation of services might not be an easy task for most organisations. However, the experience of an organisation is essential and critical to the success in revolutionizing such an industry which is rather stable. It is only a matter of time that we should be able to get instant services on more high-involvement decisions. A2Z Car Removals are car wreckers and a car removal company in Auckland. Their services are car removal, abandoned car buying, paying instant cash for cars, and send-hand car buying. They buy old cars, used cars, trucks, utes, SUVs, vans, etc. Their services include van pickup, car pickup, giving cash for old or scrap cars and buying old cars for cash. They also do free car removal of accidental, junk and scrap vehicles.  They buy vehicles of all categories in all makes and models. Road rage and bad driving sees more dash cams being installed 2019-06-12T01:38:58Z road-rage-and-bad-driving-sees-more-dash-cams-being-installed It seems that not a day goes by when we don’t hear about a road rage incident or see a case of really bad driving. This is prompting more drivers to install dash cams — or car dashboard cameras — in their vehicles to insure themselves against adverse outcomes that may occur as a result. Along with many other reasons to use a dash cam, it’s the user’s hip pocket that’s the winner: protecting their finances and personal property, and importantly, their time. For example, with rear-ending being the most common type of car accident in Australia, drivers of the car who did the rear-ending are usually considered at fault unless they can prove otherwise. If they are innocent, a dash cam with a crisp clear recording can help prove it straight away. Clear footage can also help identify vehicles that leave the scene of an incident. Insurance companies love dash cams because they can then chase the real instigator of the crash and the affected driver isn’t recorded as being at fault. At its heart, a dash cam continuously records video and audio as well as other information such as location, date, time and speed. Leading Australian safety products company, Andatech, has introduced new DriveSense Ranger dash cams that use the latest generation technology and provide exceptional camera quality. G-sensor detects vibrations Ensuring the video footage is protected when needed is crucial, which is assisted by the gravity sensor (G-sensor) in the device. DriveSense dash cams have a built-in G-sensor that uses indicators such as vibrations and sudden jolting motions to alert the user to protect the recorded file so it cannot be deleted or overwritten. The G-sensor sensitivity can be set to low, medium, high or switched off completely. A film file can also be manually selected to lock or protect, which is then saved in a separate folder in the microSD card and cannot be deleted. Andatech’s two dash cam models comprise the DriveSense Ranger Dash Cam with WiFi and GPS ($249) and the DriveSense Ranger Duo Dash Cam ($299), which has both a front and rear dash cam with GPS. DriveSense features Features of the DriveSense Ranger dash cams include: * Recording in high resolution super HD 1080p at 30 frames per second to ensure it will pick up details such as licence plate numbers. * 1.5 or 2-inch LCD colour screen that is lightweight and compact without blocking the field of view. * A built-in accelerometer that records the speed of the vehicle while driving and is shown in every video recording. * 150-degree wide angle view with six-layer glass and infrared vision that provides an excellent field of view, comfortably covering up to five lanes of traffic. * 4x digital zoom to check details of licence plates, road signs and street names and large f/2.0 aperture, which provides vivid recordings under low light conditions and clear images even at night. * Ability to record videos in 3, 5 or 10 minute segments or continuously.

This tech platform called Story Match® will change the way that you receive your story pitches. No more emails, no more press releases and no more hassling PRs (I promise not to be one of those…) First, watch this! In 1.5 minutes it will explain it all to you… Story Match® is a two sided market place App and Desktop platform that allows brands to pitch story ideas to journalists, at the same time allowing journalists to select only what topics of stories they want to receive. Journalists, like you, set up their profile using 6 simple steps. You can select from up to 50 industry tags (food, finance, lifestyle, tech, etc etc) and can localise by State and Territories. If there’s a match on industry tags then you see the pitch. Using swiping technology you can scroll through stories, swipe left if you don’t like the story or right if you do. If you swipe right, it will open an immediate and private chat between you and the person who posted the pitch. The best bit…. The pitches have limitations – so brands can only upload selected images, a headline and up to 500 characters to bring their pitch to life. They then select which industry tag their story is relevant to, and localise it. So now you don’t need to read any more press releases or receive any more pitches that you’re not interested in. Story Match® was developed to improve efficiencies in the media industry, and allow all brands, no matter how big or small the opportunity to get their brand noticed. The tech platform has been developed by Founder and Director of Polkadot Communications Dionne Taylor – who has worked both as a journalist and a PR for the last 15 years.
