Unless it’s a brand new one, no vehicle comes without history. This is why Carousell Autos now has an Inspected badge!
At Carousell, we aim to provide transparency in transactions. However, without proper technical knowledge and expertise, the condition of a vehicle cannot be fully assessed, which leads to confusion and unnecessary risks for both buyers and sellers. An unbiased, professional evaluation eliminates this issue and provides all parties with the necessary transparency and trust.
What does this “Inspected” badge in the listing mean?
As part of the Carousell Inspected program, any vehicle listings that are tagged with the “Inspected” badge indicates that the vehicle on sale has been professionally evaluated at partnering Authorised Service Centres, Independent Workshops and Accredited Evaluation Centres, and comes with a certified report.
