About Clicars 

Although the used car market in Spain is worth over $13B, consumers only have two traditional options: car dealers and informal peer-to-peer transactions. With most car dealers low balling offers to sellers and upselling to buyers -an informal transactions leaving buyers susceptible to scams and misinformation- neither option is ideal. Thus, Clicars is a win-win for both buyers and sellers (both individuals and businesses) of second-hand cars. For buyers, Clicars offers a fully-inspected, detailed, and Clicars-certified car at a competitive price delivered right to their door. A customer-centric brand, Clicars also gives financing and insurance options, as well as a 15-day or 1,000 km return policy (the longest in the market). Individual sellers are drawn to Clicars’ free, on-site appraisal using its proprietary pricing algorithm that uses real-time market and Clicars’s data to ensure sellers receive a fair offer. Once a vehicle passes Clicars’s 250-point mechanical inspection, sellers can choose an immediate purchase or consignment option. So valuable is Clicars’ customer-centric sales model that business sellers now allow the company to hold their inventory in Clicars warehouses at no charge until a sale is made. Clicars uses technology to bring data, transparency, and convenience to the used car market. Its full-service platform allows both buyers and sellers to complete a transaction 100% online as well as get access to financing and insurance options through partners like Santander and BBVA.
