How does Carvago work?

Simply. Choose a car. We will arrange a detailed inspection. Based on that you can decide whether you want the car. We then buy it, arrange an extended warranty, register it and deliver it to you.

How Carvago works
  • 14days
    Money back guarantee

    And if you simply don’t like the car, you can return it to us within 14 days of receiving it.

    Can I really return the car?

    Of course, you can. We trust our service and know that we only sell inspected vehicles in excellent technical condition. Together with our customers we are fighting for better vehicles on Czech roads.

    Carvago therefore always assumes all risks connected with the vehicle. And if you simply don’t like the car, you can return it to us up to 14 days after receiving it.

  • safety
    Safe purchase

    We carefully inspect each car and guarantee it is in good condition before the purchase.

    You don’t risk anything in buying

    Carvago is the safest way of buying a used car. Before purchase we first of all carefully examine the chosen car and you then decide on the basis of its current condition and our recommendation.

    You always sign a contract with Carvago, so all guarantees are provided by us - you only need to buy a car, in your native language.

    Wherever the car is from, you always make the payment to a local account in your local curency.

  • warranty
    6-month warranty

    In addition, with every car you receive an extended warranty.

    You receive an extended warranty on the car

    For even greater peace of mind, as well as the warranty guarantee for hidden defects, you also have from us an extended 6-month warranty on the essentials - the engine, gearbox and differential. With of course zero involvement and even for an unlimited amount of defects.

    If you want even more, you can choose a longer period or cover for other parts of the vehicle in the order.

750,000 cars per click :)

We process over 7 million ads every day, but we recommend only 10% of them for purchase. With the remaining cars, something often "doesn't fit" us.

Why do you not show cars from all of the dealers?

We only work with tried and tested dealers and only select cars which meet strict criteria. From 7 million adverts, we only recommend 750,000 cars for purchase, which is however still 10x more than the number of cars on offer in the Czech Republic. In addition to that, each vehicle must pass a thorough technical inspection consisting of more than 270 parameters before it can be sold. You will receive the result of the entire inspection and photo documentation together with our recommendation in advance.

Do you sell only vetted cars?

Each vehicle must pass a thorough technical inspection consisting of more than 270 parameters before it can be sold. In addition to this, Carvago becomes the owner of the car before it is delivered to the customer and assumes all risks associated with the vehicle.
And if there is any problem, you can return the car to us at any time within 14 days of purchase.

Where do the cars in your offer come from?

The size of the offer often determines whether or not you find the car you are looking for. So far, customers in the Czech Republic have been able to choose from 70,000 cars. However, Carvago offers more than 750,000. And each car is just as close as the next - one click away. And since you are buying the car from us, communication is always only in Czech, regardless where the car is located. We will take care of any language and legal issues.

If you're looking for a 2017 Volkswagen Golf with a diesel engine and a mileage of at most 50,000 kilometers, you will find about 10 of them for sale in the Czech Republic. You will find at least 153 cars with these parameters at Carvago. And a lot of them at a better price, with better equipment or better looking.

We arrange a vehicle inspection

We do not own cars in our offer, so we must first thoroughly check them. We know specific models and motorizations perfectly and we know what to focus on for each of them.

Which things do we check?

First of all, we physically inspect each car using the CarAudit service which includes 270 inspection points, VIN verification and detailed photos of any damage. Where possible, we request complete service documentation which we compare with the physical condition of the car and the records from the authorised dealers. We also compare the car with other cars on the market of a similar age and with a similar mileage. We only recommend cars in excellent technical condition.

Who inspects the car?

Depending on the car’s country of origin, we either use our network of authorised technicians to perform a thorough inspection, or work with local authorised centres such as Dekra, TUV, Pirelli and others. Everything is performed in line with a standardised process and the result is compared with similar cars on the market. We only recommend cars in excellent technical condition.

What if the car fails the inspection?

Despite the fact that we analyse more than 7 million adverts every day and only pass 10% of them for inclusion in our offer, the result of the vehicle inspection need not necessarily be satisfactory. We will tell you quite transparently why the car didn’t pass and why we are not recommending that you purchase it.
If we find the car to be unsuitable, you will not lose any money and we will refund the inspection fee. You also have the option of choosing another car.

How much does a CarAudit™ cost?

The actual inspection of the car will cost you and we are usually able to arrange this within 2 working days. You will receive a detailed report from the inspection together with our recommendation and you can then decide for yourself whether you want to buy the car. The vehicle inspection fee is a one-off fee and covers our costs for the call out of the technician, physical inspection, test drive, verification of the vehicle’s origin and condition, and the recommendation to purchase. If we find the car to be unsuitable, you will not lose any money and we will refund the CarAudit™ payment. You also have the option of choosing another car.

Car financing
within 15 minutes online

You can either pay for the car with your own money or use financing via Carvago. We have above-standard conditions agreed with many verified banks and financial service providers.

Can I also pay in cash at the branch?

In view of the fact that this an online sale, payment in cash is not possible. Payment can be made either by bank transfer or by means of a cash deposit to our account in the bank.

I like the car. What comes next?

Once you have chosen your car and decided to have it inspected, you then choose the method of payment, either bank transfer or using financing from one of our partners. In the last step of the order, you can choose from a wide range of additional services.

Is it possible to trade in my old car?

Yes, that is possible. Please fill in the form with basic information about your car and we will then contact you to discuss the purchase options.

Can I buy the car on credit?

Yes, you can either pay the whole purchase price of the car or choose the option of financing with a down payment. First of all, you order and pay for the inspection of the car to confirm your interest in the chosen car. We will pass on your request, together with your chosen car details to our financial partners for evaluation. You don’t have to worry about anything. As soon as we receive the result we will let you know.

I have already received the documentation showing the result of the inspection.
What happens next?

If you have decided to buy the car, confirm the order. We will issue you a proforma invoice for the remaining price of the car and handle all the formalities, so that you can have your chosen car as soon as possible.

We’ll buy the car
and make all the necessary arrangements

We purchase the car and deregister it in its country of origin.

Each country has its own regulations, for instance in Slovakia a vehicle must be deregistered in the same place it was registered. It’s not every business that works like Carvago.

We receive the car and again thoroughly inspect it

In our technical center we once again verify the state of the car, and if it turns out that something is wrong, we fix it or sort it out with the seller.

We arrange the MOT, registration check and licence plates.

In order to arrange this we need a power of attorney from you. We will talk about this when we successfully purchase the car.

If you want, we also arrange car insurance.

We have very good conditions arranged with several partners, so you don’t need to take care of anything.

Where will you deliver my car to?

How long will it take for you to deliver my car?
