An Uninvited Direct Sale means an agreement made as a result of negotiations between the MVT and the Purchaser where the negotiations take place between the Purchaser and the MVT, either:

  • in each other’s presence, in the Purchaser’s home or workplace, where the Purchaser did not invite the MVT to come to that place; or
  • by telephone, where the Purchaser did not invite the MVT to make the telephone call.

For further explanation refer to section 36K of the Fair Trading Act 1986.
Where the parties have agreed that this Agreement was entered into as an Unsolicited Direct Sale, the Purchaser acknowledges that before it entered into this Agreement the MVT advised the Purchaser of their right to cancel and how to do so as set out on the front page of this Agreement.

The Purchaser acknowledges that it was given a copy of this Agreement on the date the Agreement was entered into (or within five working days of that date if the Agreement was entered into over the telephone).


In the event the Purchaser opts to cancel this Agreement, where it is an Unsolicited Direct Sale, in accordance with the terms set out on the front page of this Agreement:

  • the MVT Must:
    • immediately repay all money the Purchaser has already paid under the Agreement;
    • arrange to collect (or ask the Purchaser to return) any goods the MVT has already supplied at its own expense;
    • if the Purchaser asks, reinstate the Purchaser's property to its previous condition where services have already been supplied and have altered or damaged the Purchaser's property.
  • the Purchaser must:
    • allow the MVT to collect any goods already supplied, providing the Purchaser has been refunded;
    • take reasonable care of any goods that have already been supplied and enable the MVT to collect those goods within 10 working days of cancellation;
    • compensate the MVT for any loss or damage to the goods while in the Purchaser's possession, except for loss or damage from normal use or circumstances beyond the Purchaser's control. The Purchaser's liability for loss or damage ends 10 working days after cancellation, or until the MVT has been given a reasonable opportunity to collect the goods (whichever is longer).

If the MVT has already supplied services under this Agreement, they are not entitled to compensation for those services after cancellation of the Agreement by the Purchaser.

If the Purchaser chooses to return the goods to the MVT at their own expense, they must take reasonable care to ensure those goods will be delivered and not be damaged in transit.


As security for all obligations that the Purchaser may owe to the MVT from time to time the Purchaser hereby grants the MVT a security interest under the PPSA in all Vehicles supplied by the MVT to the Purchaser from time to time and in the proceeds of all such Vehicles as well as in any negotiable instrument representing any such proceeds.

The Purchaser will provide the MVT on request with all information necessary for the registration of the MVT’s security interest in terms of the PPSA.
