After seeing an opportunity to provide good quality, late model, low kilometers, New Zealand New, used vehicles at competitive prices – Near New Cars was formed in 2016 by Grant and Cherie McQuoid (owners) and Mike Morgan (sales manager).


Grant McQuoid and Mike Morgan

Our focus is New Zealand New and our main supply are used vehicles that are six to eighteen months old with balance of new vehicle warranties and significant savings on buying new. We will trade anything and are interested to buy anything NZ new.

Grant is a former professional rugby player, having played for NZ Sevens, Waikato Chiefs, Bay of Plenty Steamers and contracts in France and Japan. He retired in 2010 and lives in Tauranga with his young family and has successful businesses in the Bay of Plenty/Waikato region.

Mike a born and raised Tauranga local has been in the automotive industry for over 20 years having spent a majority of that time in car sales. Mike says “Growing up I never thought I would be a car sales person, but it involves dealing with two of things I enjoy most – people and cars!”.


Near New Cars is passionate about those we interact with and the community. Our reason for being in business is to enrich people’s lives. We have supported Homes of Hope and plan to increase our community support as we can.

Thank you for taking the time to reading this and we would love to help you with your vehicle needs.
