The Covid aftermath was a nightmare for many but a significant life-changing turning point for Jacob Newman. The 23-year-old entrepreneur, who hails from Gold Coast, Australia, has years of experience in the car industry and online business and now works with car broker services.
The ambitious entrepreneur says, “whilst businesses and the economy were slowly on the mend, there began to be a more noticeable discrepancy between the available supply of new cars and the increasing demand.” This was when Jacob Newman decided to take the leap and start his own car broker service with his friend.
Jacob puts your mind at ease in a chaotic world where time and money are highly valued. The Verified Cars company sources new and used cars and assists with order allocation, special vehicle pricing and accessories.
Jacob helps people access thousands of vehicles Australia-wide, which helps their customers get a broader scope of their available options. As for used cars, exclusive services include historical and mechanical checks, negotiations and delivery of vehicles.
Car market trends
The current car market has experienced tremendous growth for hybrid and electric vehicles. Jacob states, “aside from the rising cost of fossil fuels, customers are becoming more aware of their impact on the environment around them.”
The Verified Cars founder agrees with the benefits that come along with hybrid and electric vehicles. According to Jacob, electric and hybrid vehicles are more cost-effective over the long term. The Australian car dealer concurs with the added benefit of reduced upkeep and maintenance costs, which is far lower than traditional combustion vehicles.
Choose to start somewhere
Jacob Newman strongly believes “you have to actively choose to start somewhere.” The young entrepreneur also advises people to “play the part, then bridge the gap as quickly as possible.” While starting Verified Cars, Jacob Newman recalls things not being perfect as he didn’t know everything, stating, “just start because thinking back, if I waited any longer, or tried to make things perfect prior to starting, I would have never started and operated the business I have today.”
Jacob Newman, an Australian car dealer, bridges the gap of the increasing demand for new vehicles. Although it has only been a few years, Verified Cars is currently sourcing hundreds of cars for clients Australia-wide. With a team of 6 members, Jacob has successfully partnered with well-renowned companies across the vehicle, finance and lottery space.
