You can do both! We will work with you on getting a fair price for your existing car. If you find the car of your dreams on Carma, we will apply the trade-in price to the purchase of your new car.

It's easy. First, let us know about your car via the online form on this page. We'll get in contact with you to discuss the full details about your trade-in car, and offer you a price. If you decide to proceed, we'll help take the hassle out of the process. We'll even come and collect the car from you, regardless of whether you're buying a Carma car, or selling only.

The more information and pictures you can provide us about the car, the better we will be able to provide you with a fair valuation of the car. We will need:

  • Make, model and year

  • Please send us your registration information


    the VIN number of the car is unregistered

  • Your odometer reading (km)

  • Is your gearbox auto or manual?

  • Do you have service history for the car?

  • Are there any options or extras?

  • Is there any notable damage?

Also, photos of the front of the car, the side of the car, and the odometer will help speed up the process. Simply get in touch with our team if you would like a valuation for your trade-in.

We compare current market data and previous sales of similar makes and models, taking into account features and condition such as kilometres.

We believe in offering the best price first to avoid haggling but there may be instances of inaccuracy in the description of the vehicle for which we are open to a discussion.

We know these things happen, talk to our team and we'll walk you through the car valuation.

The car does not need to be registered, but must be able to be registered in Australia with prior Australian registration documents in your name.

That's no problem, you'll just need to pay out the amount owing on the vehicle before we collect the car from you.
