When there are so many motor vehicle dealerships to choose from and prices are not that different from one place to another, why buy from Jarvis? 

There’s a number of reasons that make Jarvis stand apart from the rest and here’s why we think we’re the best place to purchase your next vehicle.


Proudly South Australian owned and operated, the Jarvis Group has been trading since 1984. During this time the business has grown from a single franchised location to a multi franchised, eight location operation which sells over 8,000 new and used cars per year and services in excess of 40,000 vehicles.

Our credibility is continuously monitored not only by our customers, but also by the manufacturers whose vehicles we sell.

The Jarvis Group is one of Australia's highest award winning dealerships in recognition of outstanding service and sales to our customers.


It’s one thing for us to say that we’re a great company to deal with, but we figure you’d like to see some proof. There are currently 194 up to date testimonials on our website from our customers, review these for yourself to see what our customers think of us.  We are very proud of the results.

New Cars

Our policy is very straight forward. When we advertise price for a new vehicle it includes all on road expenses, in other words, you’re able to purchase the car for the advertised price and drive away with it. This includes all on road charges such as stamp duty, registration (for 12 months, unless stated otherwise), transfer fee and dealer delivery.

Used Cars

All Jarvis used vehicles have gone through a rigorous safety, mechanical and body check to ensure that only the best cars are being offered for sale. It is our policy not to knowingly sell a vehicle which has been involved in a major accident. Any vehicle which doesn’t meet our rigorous inspection qualifications will not be offered for sale to the public. Our customers can buy with confidence and peace of mind knowing they are purchasing a quality vehicle.

Guaranteed title and no written off or stolen vehicles

All Jarvis used vehicles have guaranteed title. Many people don’t realise that if they privately purchase a vehicle that the title does not pass over to them at transfer of registration if there is money still owing to a financier. We conduct a search on all used vehicles via the PPSR (Personal Property Securities Register) to ensure that there are no monies owing on them, and very importantly, to also confirm that a vehicle has never been written off or stolen. It is only once a vehicle has cleared these checks (and been put through our stringent reconditioning process), that we will make it available for sale to the public.

Our used vehicles all come with the guarantee that they have been checked via the PPSR to carry clear, unencumbered title and have never been written off or stolen. 

Quality endorsed

The entire Jarvis operation is Quality Endorsed. We have held this prestigious accreditation since 1994. Jarvis is one of the few major vehicle dealerships that has its used car department Quality Endorsed. The internationally recognised standards and systems that Jarvis has in place ensure high standards in all Jarvis services – New Cars, Used Cars, Service and Parts Departments…and guarantee that when Jarvis says “we’ll do it”, that job will be done!

Jarvis is Green!

For many years, Jarvis has made a commitment to do our best for the environment and to be "green" whenever possible. There are numerous green policies & waste management strategies in place at every Jarvis new and used vehicle location.

Multi Award Winning

Over the past 39 years, the Jarvis Group has become one of Australia's highest award winning dealerships in recognition of outstanding service and sales to our customers.


There is so much to our "we'll bend over backwards for you" service philosophy at Jarvis. Here's just some of what makes the Jarvis Difference what it is.

Our staff

There’s over 300 staff at “Team Jarvis!” Many who work on the Jarvis team have been employed at Jarvis for over ten years – some for over thirty. This is recognised on the Jarvis ‘Honour Boards’ which can be seen on the walls of Jarvis locations around Adelaide. The staff who have achieved this honour (and some say it’s been hard work, but they love it!!) range from new car and used car Managers, new car and used car Sales Consultants, Administration staff and of course, Service Staff. Our staff are a dedicated team and our main aim is to achieve the highest levels of customer satisfaction - a claim we don't make lightly! All Jarvis staff participate in our ongoing, in-house and external training.

So much choice

Jarvis stocks the entire range of new model Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Skoda, Suzuki and Isuzu Ute, plus we currently have over 500 quality used cars to choose from, all of which have undergone our rigorous mechanical and safety checks.

Eight sales locations around Adelaide, plus Interstate Easy Buy

Jarvis has eight convenient locations around Adelaide, plus there's always the opportunity to search all our stock online on this website. Jarvis customers aren’t just from Adelaide, they are located all around Australia and enjoy the convenience of buying interstate with Jarvis Interstate Easybuy.

Maintaining your vehicle

Jarvis has five convenient Service locations around Adelaide and South Australia. Even though Jarvis specialise in selling new Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Suzuki, Skoda, Peugeot and Isuzu Ute vehicles, we service all makes and models of vehicles. We also specialise in manufacturer warranty and scheduled servicing. To find out more about Jarvis Service Centres, click here.

Value for Money

You'll find our low prices and free extras provide real value for money!

Low prices

New Cars: One of the reasons the Jarvis group sells so many new cars is because our prices are low. We are continually monitoring competitor’s prices and making adjustments when necessary in order to benefit our customers. If in the event a customer has received a lower written quote for a new vehicle elsewhere we will endeavor to beat it.

Used Cars: Because Jarvis sells so many used vehicles we are able to often source inventory at significantly lower prices. Our streamlined reconditioning process and highly trained staff allow Jarvis to keep reconditioning costs to a minimum without sacrificing quality. This allows Jarvis to pass on savings to our customers in the form of lower prices.

The Jarvis Used Car Free Extras

All Jarvis used vehicles carry our exclusive three year warranty and one year Roadside Assistance Australia Wide. This provides real value because our customers are receiving significant protection additional to the statutory three month dealer warranty at no additional cost. Vehicle must be serviced regularly by Jarvis and some parts are excluded. Refer to the Jarvis Warranty and Road Service Terms for full details.

We call it the 'Absolute Best Price!'

So you’re looking for the right car at a low price, but you also want to deal with a reputable company which offers great service and value for money. In short, you’re looking for the ‘Absolute Best Price’.  At Jarvis, we believe the ‘Absolute Best Price’ should consist of Credibility, Service and Value for Money.  When you consider all the above reasons they all add up to ensure you are totally satisfied with your purchase, making Jarvis the absolute best place to buy your next vehicle at the Absolute Best Price.

Jarvis is a people driven company, focused on providing an environment which creates loyal, satisfied customers and staff.
