The project aimed to gain a better understanding of how the mobile trader industry operated, the business practices causing difficulty for consumers and the level of compliance with the laws we enforce (Fair Trading Act (FT Act) and Credit Contracts and Consumer Finance Act (CCCF Act)).

The report is intended as a general review of the mobile trader industry, based on the information we obtained from a wide variety of sources such as mobile traders and their customers, and community and non-government organisations.
