Cars are expensive, which rings truer with COE premiums imploding in 2022

While brand new cars feel unattainable for most people in Singapore, used or pre-owned cars make more economic sense. However, the more affordable alternative comes with different worries and risks.

"Why did the seller set this car at such a low price? Is there something wrong with the car?"
"What if I buy over the car, and it starts causing me problems after a year or two?"
"Why is the mileage so high? Is it a PHV car?"
"Will the dealer/seller add to the listed price for modifications or parts in which I have zero interest?"
"The listing indicates that this car is accident-free. But is it accident-free?"

These are some questions or doubts you'll have at the start of your used car buying journey. It's only natural. We've all been there. 

Now, what if there was a service that could mitigate all the risks or doubt you might have? Wouldn't that be awesome?

But fret not, we will conduct a mandatory pre-purchase inspection for every car under the Buysafe badge. This inspection uncovers any major engine or gearbox defects to prevent users from having a sour experience after taking over ownership of the car.

Once you've agreed on a price for the car you want, we will send the car for the inspection with no cost on your part. It's a complimentary service we provide so that our customers feel safe.
