We have partnered over 270 reputable used car dealers in Singapore to help you sell your car at the highest possible price. Whenever you submit your vehicle details to us, we put your car up in our in-house bidding system.

This bidding takes place every day, which allows us to return to you with the highest possible offer within one working day. These bids are kept confidential, that means the dealers won’t know the bidding amount each of them has placed. This ensures fair competition among the dealers and only we will be able to see the number of bidders and their offers.

After 24 hours, we will return to you with the highest offer for your car. That’s right, no troublesome negotiations or low-balling from dealers.

If you remain unconvinced with our offer, simply let us know, and we’ll hold your offer for one week. Just because your car has been put up for bidding doesn’t mean you have to commit to the sale. That’s right, our service is completely complimentary, and you are free to back off at any time.

If you are satisfied with the results, simply inform us, and we’ll arrange a car viewing date with the dealer that offered the best price for your car.

Arrange Car Viewing and Inspection with the Dealer

In order to justify the sales offer, the dealer has to view and inspect your car’s current condition. If your car is in the exact condition as you had described during the bidding phase, the dealer will sign off on the selling price. If not, they might reduce the selling price of your vehicle. That is why it’s essential that you fill up your car details as accurately as possible.

After the viewing and inspection, we will need a few days to settle the necessary paperwork and any outstanding bank loan. Once those are settled, we will arrange a handover date with the dealer.

On the date of handover, all you’ll need to do is to drive your car down to the dealership and handover the keys. The terms of payment will be negotiated before the handover, so kindly advise us if you have a preferred method of payment. Once you have received the payment, the transaction is complete!
