The online quote is an estimated value range generated by our pricing algorithm based on broad parameters such as car make and model, variant, and the odometer reading. During physical inspection, our car evaluator checks for consistency between your answers in the online evaluation form and the physical condition of the car. Accurately filling the online evaluation form helps get you a price close to the online quote.

The online quote does not match my expectations. Can I get a better price upon inspection?

While your car price depends upon various factors, the online quote is an estimated value/range generated by our pricing algorithm based on broad parameters like car make and model, variant, odometer reading, document availability, and other details about your car that you share. 

The final price offered also takes into consideration the physical condition of your vehicle as evaluated during the inspection process and market conditions.

What factors impact the price of my car?

There are three major factors that affect the price of your car. The first is your car condition. Our inspection report captures the current condition of your car and highlights any additional features you have installed or any refurbishment work needed in your car. 

 

The second is market demand for your car. We have a network of more than 10,000+ channel partners pan-India who actively bid on your car,  ensuring you get a great price.

Your documents—RC, insurance—and your duplicate keys also impact the price of your car, so please ensure that these are available at the time of inspection. To know more, you can read our blog on Factors that Determine Your Car’s Resale Value.
Home Inspection

If my car is not in working condition (non-moving) or is to be scrapped, can I still get the inspection done?

Our car evaluators will inspect the car on multiple parameters—exteriors, interiors, engine quality, and a short test drive to be able to generate a fair, unbiased inspection report. If your car is to be scrapped, we will be able to do the inspection as per that of a non-moving car. But if it’s not a scrap car, we request you to get the car in a moving condition before the evaluator reaches your location. 

For example, in case it is a battery issue, you may ask your local mechanic to jump-start the battery before the evaluator reaches your place, and highlight the same to the car evaluator before the inspection begins.

What if I have more than one car that needs to be inspected?

We would request you to book separate inspection slots for every car that you have as our evaluators inspect multiple cars a day.

Do I need to be present during the inspection?

No. However, you must ensure that whoever is present during the inspection has all required documents and the keys to the car.

What documents do I need during the inspection?

The CARS24 evaluator will check your Registration Certificate (RC), insurance, and duplicate key if you have it.

How long will the inspection take?

Our evaluators try to complete the inspection within 30-45 minutes. However, depending on the condition of the car it can sometimes take up to one hour.

What will you check during the inspection?

Our car inspection process is fair and thorough to ensure an objective, standardised report that gives a clear view of the condition of your car. We start with a document check and test drive and then use our proprietary assessment tool to check the exterior, tires, engine, transmission, interiors and electricals. We also inspect the steering mechanism, suspension, brakes and accessories of your car during the test drive. Feel free to ask the CARS24 evaluator if you have any questions about the inspection process.

It is the new owner’s responsibility to get the insurance transferred. CARS24 does not facilitate this process.

Will CARS24 also get the insurance transferred for me?

Unfortunately, CARS24 does not provide any insurance transfer service currently. Customers are requested to connect with the insurance provider to get the insurance transferred after purchasing the car and receiving the relevant documents from CARS24.
If the current insurance of the car is not under your name, we recommend that you get the insurance transferred within 14 days of your purchase to ensure that the car is protected from any unforeseen situations.

Please contact the insurance provider to raise an insurance transfer request. You can share copies of the documents as required by the insurance provider: Form 29, Form 30, Insurance Transfer Form, Old RC of the car, Copy of previous insurance policy, RTO Receipt, etc.

Your car will be assessed by the insurance provider and you will be required to pay a nominal fee for the transfer. Transferring the policy to your name is essential for claiming insurance.
