Facts and figures and why it works.

Facts and Figures and why we are convinced it works.

“We have 15.3 million motor vehicles, registered in Australia at 31 March 2008; These vehicles are traveling an average of 14,600 kilometers per vehicle, annually. Personal and other use accounted for 51.1% of the total kilometers traveled while travel to and from work (28.7%) and business use (20.2%) accounted for the remaining kilometers traveled by passenger vehicles.

There were 720 motor vehicles per 1,000 resident population in Australia at 31 March 2009 and the average age of all vehicles registered in Australia was 9.9 years. Read details here

Rising population levels and gridlocked roads in Australia’s major cities, along with an erratic public transport system, spells major headaches for the nine million commuters who struggle to and from work each week says Maria Nyguen of B&T Today. And by  some time, we are not talking about a few minutes, commuters are now spending up to 180 minutes on road each day. Read Sydney example study at consistency-in-travel-time.

To summarise these statistics simply, almost 3 out of 4 of us in Australia own a vehicle which is roadworthy and 9.9 years old and we are now driving longer distances and spending up to 180 minutes on the  road each day.

“More than 90% of commuters are exposed to OOH advertising everyday on a regular basis, so it has a very high reach potential.” says Richard Herring, chief executive of APN Outdoor.

Clearly business owners big and small have already acknowledged this to be an effective medium of advertising. Now’s your turn and test the waters and see how well it works for you too.

Insure your car for free

The title was not meant to only grab your attention. It is a very real possibility. You may be able to recover the insurance of your car.

I have quotes from leading vehicle insurer like AAMI and NRMA for a private vehicle in Australia. To keep it as generic and simple as possible, I asked for a comprehensive quote for a 2008 automatic Toyota Yaris 5dr sedan, for 1 or 2 drivers. The quotes below say it all.


If you dismissed $75 for a decal on the tail of your car, as a paltry amount, think again. It may be more than sufficient to pay comprehensive insurance for your vehicle each month. So go on and get bidding.

Please note: The quotes above may change per the service provider. However the information displayed can be publicly obtained and you should verify your own costs independently. cashURwheels takes no responsibility for these quotes and this is for information only.
