No. Once the contracts are signed and the deposit is paid you are required to sell it to us, as per the agreement.
Traditional dealers usually pay less for cars, and sell them for more. The advantage of Carbar is that we don’t have a car yard or salespeople. So we don’t have the same overhead costs. We can afford to pay sellers more and give buyers a better price.
We use market data to scan prices, as well as prices from car classifieds and other sources. We then use that data to calculate a super-competitive price. This ensures that both our sellers and buyers are getting a great deal.
Yes. We’ll inspect it wherever suits you. We want to make the process as easy and hassle-free as possible.
Yes. Our inspector will need to meet you and verify that you are the owner of the vehicle. We’ll need to see a physical copy of your driver’s license and the car registration. Once those formalities are done you're free to do whatever you like. The inspector will give you back your keys once the inspection is complete. Of course, you're also free to stay with the inspector throughout the process. It’s up to you.
Congratulations! Your car is one of the selected quality vehicles accepted by Carbar. If we can come to an agreement on the price, we will buy your car by putting a deposit on it. We will then contact you as soon as we find a buyer. Of course, if your car doesn’t sell within 40 days from the agreement of purchase date, we will pay you the balance regardless. So you can relax. The deal is done.
On average, you can expect us to sell your car in about 30 days, and at a maximum of 40 days. You can drive your car during that period and remain responsible for it, right up until the moment we come and collect it.
Of course! We'll happily sell a leased car or a car with a remaining loan. We'll even handle all the paperwork for the process, and deal directly with the bank.
Once Carbar provides you with your final payment and picks up your car then you’re 100% finished. Provided everything you have said about the car is correct, then anything that happens after that point is our responsibility.
We are not your traditional car dealer. We’re a tech company that helps eliminate the hassle of buying and selling a car. We don't have a car yard or pushy sales people, so our cars are priced fairly. You can buy a car directly from our website and we’ll deliver it to your door (for no extra fee). Each car is thoroughly inspected, detailed and backed by a 3 Day/300km Try/Buy period.
At your front door! At the seller’s home! In our showroom! The choice is yours. Sellers advertise their cars on our site but the car remains in their possession until a buyer is found.
Once you have paid your $50 deposit and the insurance bond, we’ll deliver the car to your door (within 50km radius of Melbourne CBD).
We also back the cars with a 3 day/300km (whichever comes first) money back guarantee. If you don't fall in love with the car, and provided it's in the same condition, we will take it back.
Very simple! You pick a car and drive it at a weekly rate for an unlimited period of time with a two-week return notice. It’s just like subscribing to Netflix.
Two weeks as it is our return notice policy.
No, but you will need to submit your driver history as a part of your application.
Here's the checklist of the documents required for the application
The damage excess is covered under insurance bond ($2000). If you return the car undamaged, the bond will be refunded to you or will be deducted accordingly based on the damage. If you choose to pay the membership fee ($495), this does not cover the damage liability.
Of course you can! As long as you’re registered with VicRoads and have a Client ID, that shouldn’t be an issue.
Well, it’s just like you subscribe to Netflix. You don’t get locked in a contract like leasing a car and you can cancel anytime, with two-week notice.
Yes you can. Every three months, you gain one free swap. If you swap the car before 3 months, there will be a charge of $100 admin fee.
