Buying a car from Certiride is a good idea for many reasons – two of them are price, and quality:
Certiride is able to offer a better price than a dealership because we have lower costs, and better data:
The cars are owned by private individuals who have looked after their vehicles, and want to sell via us in order to not get ripped off by a dealer (who typically adds 40% - 60% onto the price, excluding all the extras). We take consignment of their cars while we look for you, the buyer!
You can, of course, but before doing that be aware of a few things:
To buy a car from us, just browse our website. When you find the car you want, click on the button which says “Test Drive it – Click here!”. Once you’ve completed the form we will arrange for a time, at your convenience, to bring the car to your office or home for a test drive.
Before taking a car for a test drive, we’ll get a few of your personal details. Then, if you’d like to buy a car, we’ll need a copy of your ID and proof of residence.

To make this experience easier for you, we reimburse you R250/week to get around with Uber.
Certiride is able to offer a better price than a dealership for a few reasons:
No, we only take a small commission once we’ve actually sold your car. For our commission, we use a profit-share model: We guarantee you a minimum amount for your car, but anything above that we split 50/50. So, if for example we guaranteed you R80 000 for your Hyundai, but actually sold it for R95 000, you’d get R86 500 into your bank account.
So, in other words, there are no upfront fees or admin fees. We only get paid if we do our job, which is to sell your car!
