    Selling your Holden the Motorway way

    Have a Holden car to sell? Here’s how to do it!

    1. Get a valuation for your car

      Motorway’s valuation tool makes it easier than ever to get a valuation for your vehicle. Best of all, it’s instant and totally free. We’ve built a very clever tool that’s based on real-time data from the car industry and from our own marketplace. That means the price you see is based on how cars like yours have been selling, totally accurate to the date. And all you need to get started is your reg and mileage.

    2. Make a car profile

      We’ve made this easy, too! We’ll just ask you some simple questions and you can answer them with a simple tap of your phone screen. It takes no more than a few minutes, and results in a profile that covers all the important details about your car that keen dealers will want to know. Taking photos is simple, too, we’ll walk you through every angle and you can snap them all from your phone camera.

    3. Relax and wait

      We’ll add your car profile to our online sale, but there’s nothing more for you to do but relax! You don’t need to talk to any dealers or strike any deals — if a dealer wants your car, they’ll have to make a deal that proves it, so, instead of talking you down to a better price, they need to let their offers do the talking and make you the best deal. Simple! We’ll be in touch as soon as the sale is over to let you know the highest offer that has been made on your car.

    4. Collection time, right from your home

      Your winning dealer will come right to your driveway to pick up your car. They’ll do a quick check to make sure it matches your car profile and then you’ll be paid securely by bank transfer.

    A bit about Holden

    Holden was an Australian car manufacturer based in Melbourne and established in 1856. Owned by General Motors since 1931, the brand’s models were mainly rebadged vehicles from other marques including Vauxhall, Toyota, Opel, Suzuki, Nissan, and Chevrolet.

    Originally established in the 1850s by James Holden, an expatriate from England living in South Australia, Holden was initially known as J. A. Holden & Co. and specialised in saddlery. It wasn’t until 1905 when James’ grandson and his interest in automobiles turned the brand towards cars, starting with car upholstery. By 1919 the brand was creating car bodies and had been renamed Holden’s Motor Body Builders Ltd. and operated out of Adelaide. In the 1920s, Holden had become an important name for other brands looking to branch out into the Australian market. They assembled bodies for Ford’s operations in Australia, as well as imported car chassis from brands such as Dodge, Buick, Chevrolet, and Fiat.

    Following the great depression which saw Holden’s production fall by over 30,000 units in a single year, the brand joined with General Motors Australia, benefiting General Motors with a native Australian identity. In the 1940s, Holden opened its second full-scale factory in Australia, although the outbreak of war slowed production as efforts were turned to military vehicles. The vehicle known as ‘The Holden’ was released in 1948 with the goal of being ‘Australia’s Own Car’ and with demand that generated a waiting list more than a year long.

    Throughout the 1950s, Holden sought to level up its production, heavily investing in improved capacity. This included the creation of the Holden ‘Ute’, created to answer the demand for rural terrain vehicles as well as the Holden FJ, the second all-Australian car that continues to be an icon. The native knowledge behind the Holden brand helped it trump competition. The Ford Falcon in 1960, for example, did poorly in Australia due to being unsuitable for Australian terrain and its failure served as the perfect springboard for the Holden EK, the local alternative. This continued to be the case throughout the decade, with Holden’s Australian-built vehicles performing strongly even in the face of competition from Japanese and American brands.

    The 1970s saw the release of Holden’s most popular car, the Commodore, but by the 80s, the brand was starting to struggle. Holden closed down one of its plants and Holden’s offerings slowly started to lose their competitive edge. Through rebadging Japanese models and releasing multiple cars in the ‘90s — including the Holden VT Commodore, Holden Astra, and Holden Vectra — Holden regained a huge market share, though by the ‘00s this had again reversed as Toyota replaced it as number one seller of vehicles in Australia.

    In an attempt to improve sales, Holden acquired a stake in Daewoo which saw cars from the South Korean manufacturer be rebadged for sale in Australia. Despite this, the only years between 2004-11 that saw Holden make a profit were 2010 and 2011. In 2012 the Australian government injected $270 million into Holden, but by 2017 the brand had stopped manufacturing cars in Australia and ultimately was retired in 2020 having served as an icon of Australian automobile history for centuries.
