Well,,,, it sounded like a great idea. i called them to see how it all worked and they asked me to email my cars info to them and they would call me back with an estimate and a time when they could send someone out for the inspection. I emailed my info and then,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,nothing,,, I never heard back from them.  I put it on craigslist and the first person to come to see it bought it. Glad i saved the money.

My first experience with Wayne of Carkibo was when I purchased my 2008 Honda CR-V. As I wrote in my review, the experience was total professional. Well, when it came time for me to sell my 2007 Civic, I figured that I would go with Carkibo because of the success with my first round with them. I couldn't be more pleased with the follow ups and continued dialogue about what was happening. Wayne always kept me in the loop about test drives, possible buyers and finally, a buyer! The transaction was easy and I absolutely will refer Carkibo to all of my friends who are looking to either buy or sell their car. Thank You!!

Me: Seller
I sold 2 cars in my lifetime both were over 8 years old and 120,000+ miles.
If you've had a car for such a long time, with so many miles. It has, a few, perhaps many issues.
I dread the experience of driving to multiple mechanics getting quotes for brakes and other problems, and getting the sticker shock of how much it is for a simple fix.

I'd rather just sell the car as-is, without the fixes.

On the other hand, I know that I won't get very much money if I sold it as is and it would be much more difficult to sell.

I heard about Carkibo from a friend that head a great experience.
I reached out to Carkibo and Wayne helped me.

He was my car savior!

The process was simple. Give him the car and some paper work, which took all of 10 minutes. And that was IT.
No untrustworthy mechanics to deal with, and $800 brake replacements.
No shopping for prices. I didn't even have to wash the car. All of that taken care of.

The expenses were all paid for from the proceeds of the car, and I didn't have to come out of pocket for anything!!

Not only that, there were things that I would not have fixed, that was fixed and added alot of value to the car. Such as: car lamp lights were foggy on the inside, post shine those looked brand spanking new. The other was a key mark on the passenger side door, which was buffed and painted. The last one was, interior liner was falling off, and that was patched and fixed as well!

Let me tell you, after seeing the car in that condition, I almost didn't want to sell it!

After all of that, the car was sold in 2 weeks and cash was settled the next day.

Net Net, 10 minutes of effort, no cash up front for fixes, the car looked beautiful, AND I got 2k more than I would have if I didn't do the fixes.

I would recommend it to all my friends and family and would definitely use it again.

I wouldn't recommend any other way to sell your car!

Carkibo made the process seamless.  As a professional, I did not have the time to market and be available for test drives.  I could have sold my car to the dealer--for literally half the price!  When a friend told me about Carkibo, it sounded too good to be true.   The experience was fantastic, Wayne and Tom were both very easy to work with and went above and beyond to make sure the process was convenient and smooth. It really is an incredible service!

Wow!  Selling your car can be super stressful.  We used Carkibo, and I must say that it was the easiest transaction we have ever had.  I am still pinching myself.  A couple of weeks ago, I had never heard of Carkibo.....now, I will never forget them.  Thanks a million Carkibo, you guys are awesome!  Tripp

Carkibo is the real deal guys! I worked with Wayne to sell my car and he did a great and professional job

Although my car was kind of older, Wayne was super motivated and goal oriented. He was very flexible and worked with me even when I was out of the country

It all started with the initial car review. Wayne was very open and honest about the Carkibo process. After signing over the title, he worked with me to get the car ready for sale by fixing minor issues after inspection. All this while, he was continuously updating me via text and sending me pictures of the car. He is amazing in knowing what the car buyer wants and what the car seller needs to do to prep the car for sale

Before Carkibo, I had the car up for sale for over a month. After many annoying no-shows and low ballers I decided to give Carkibo a try. Totally worth it!!  My car was sold in 7 days and received check shortly thereafter! The car was sold at market price and I am happy as it was totally hassle free for me!

If you want to sell your car completely hassle free with professional service, use Carkibo. It is the only logical decision! You will be surprised at how much more money you will get as compared to the other offers out there.

All in all, Carkibo is amazing and 5 stars is a must! I will recommend them to all my friends!

First time meeting Wayne, btw, Wayne work for Carkibo, he was very nice and helpful.  Wayne help me with all the paperwork and show me everything about the car.  Carkibo is the best place to buy car. Let me tell everyone why, I like Carkibo.  Carkibo did all the research for me and even give me a list which I won't even know where to look if i plan to buy a used car. The list contain the original documents from the previous owner, all previous work on the car, Carfax Report and Inspection Report, like if the car has any damages or engine problems or any kind of issue.  Wayne is a very honest and straight guy and he will tell you the truth. I would buy another car from Carkibo because I trust this company and they're honest and straight forward and they take their time making sure the car which they sold is in a good condition and they will not sell a lemon car because Carkibo believe that everyone should have a good running condition car and want everyone to be happy with the purchase.  I recommend everyone should buy used car from Carkibo if you don't believe me, try them for yourself and you'll know what I am talking about.  Once again Thank You CARKIBO...I LOVE MY BMW 328I - CHEER CARKIBO.

My first experience with them, and, for me, it's the best way to sell a car. I don't like negotiating, and usually "give away the store." Tom did a great job working with potential buyers, and then a lot of negotiating with the eventual buyer and their credit union. Glad he had the skills and the patience for that!! Got about $4,000 more than trading it in to a dealer, and no more work for me! What's not to like!
p.s. I bought my new car using a car buying service, and they couldn't give me more than what a dealer would offer.Again, Carkibo wins!
p.p.s. This turned out great for the buyer as well. They went to a dealer for essentially the same car as mine, and the dealer's initial price was way, way, way over the market value for this car. I do believe in capitalism, but used car sales can be crazy! I'm happy the buyer and I both got a decent price. I would definitely consider using Carkibo to buy a used car.

Wayne sold two of our cars for us. Service was great didn't have to worry about anything or do anything out of the way. Would highly recommend it if you don't want to go through the hassle selling a car. Easy and simple.

I got to know Carkibo from a tech meetup a little more than a month ago when I just bought a brand new luxury car and wanted to sell my 2012 Toyota Camry. I contacted Carkibo and Tom reached out to me. They explained their business in detail and I was like why not give it a try, they won't steal my car anyway. I let them check my car, handed over car documents and then the car was off to go. They handled all the selling work and I got their sell check within three weeks. I'm satisfied with the final sale price which is $2500 more than a dealer's offer. The whole process is hassle-free. I paid them 5% of the sale price and I think it's totally worth it. Tom kept in touch with me during the three weeks and he even did some body work on their expense to help with sell. Overall, great business and I'll come back again in a few years.

As a buyer from Carkibo, the overall experience was Great! Honest people to deal with. Tom has been always around to update me with all the steps he has been doing to finish the transaction. Trying to do his best to finish the deal as smooth and as fast as possible. I didn't sell my car through Carkibo, but actually I bought an almost new Camry through them. I would recommend them either way, if you are a buyer or if you are a seller.

 
Valentina N. | 2014-08-14

The experience was fantastic!!

First off, like most people, I was a bit hesitant. I was contemplating selling my car on my own or selling it directly to a dealer. Both of which, had major cons. My friend mentioned Carkibo to me. I gave it a try and was fascinated by how fast and efficient the process was.

Seriously, the best idea ever!!

through word of mouth, I found carkibo, and so glad I did. I was trying to sell my 2003 Mitsubushi Eclipse that I had for 10years. But I had difficulty trying to sell it on my own. So I resorted to carkibo. Vince was my agent, and he was amazing. The whole process was seemless and I didnt have to worry about anything. He took care of everything for me, and got me exactly what I wanted for my car hassle free. I strongly recommend carkibo if you are looking to sell your car. They are extremely pros at what they do and you will get the piece of mind you deserve knowing that your car will sell. I was told my car will sell in 1 week, and it sold in 5 days, and this is why I gave them 5 stars....

I'm so glad I found Carkibo! It was like a blessing in disguise because I went to the dealership and they gave me a pretty low offer compared to KBB and Edmunds just like I expected.  I decided to keep my car until my friend told me about Carkibo. As a woman, I don't like the thought of meeting up with strangers and dealing with negotiations face to face.  My fiance tried to sell it but couldn't find the time to meet with buyers because he was always busy with meetings and traveling for work.

I was really impressed with Carkibo customer service. The agent was friendly and he walked me through the entire process. They literally took care of everything from the inspection, test-drives, and paperwork.  I wish I would have known about Carkibo earlier.  

Thank you Carkibo for taking care of everything for me!  =)

We were looking for a car online and weren't having any luck. Lots of sellers online were misrepresenting their vehicles or would not respond timely to inquiries. With CarKibo our questions were answered quickly and accurately by our CarKibo agent. Once we made contact, we set up a test drive and our Agent even called us the day before to follow up. We enjoyed our CarKibo experience and would definitely use them in the future when buying or selling cars and won't hesitate to recommend CarKibo to friends or family. Thank you CarKibo!

I had heard about Carkibo from a coworker when we were discussing trading my car into the dealership when I bought my new one. I had sold cars in the past and knew the time and effort it would take, so I decided to take the hit and trade it in for a lower price.  He told me to not do anything until I talked with Tom with Carkibo. We called him right away and he explained the whole process immediately and with such enthusiasm. I was still a but unsure but decided to give it a chance.

I set up a meeting with Tom two days later and he and the mechanic came to my job to inspect the car and take pictures, which was great for me! Tom gave me the information packet and explained exactly what it was for and what information I needed to obtain in order for them to complete the process.

Within a week, and six test drives later, I received a call from Tom that they had an interested buyer and their offer. I agreed and it was done! The money was transferred quickly and I had no extra paperwork to send in.

I couldn't believe how easy and fast Carkibo was able to sell my car. It was extremely convenient for me, especially with my long hours during the week. I definitely wouldn't have found time to go on six test drives, let alone within one week! I would recommend this service to ANYONE who is looking to sell their car but may not have the time to invest, or looking to trade their car into a dealership. Their customer service and professionalism earn 5+ stars from me.

Wow, selling my car has never been easier! They sold my 2010 Audi A5 in less than two weeks and personally delivered the check to me. They were able to get over $4,000 more than trade-in.

Carkibo took care of all the negotiations and dealt with the test drives. They catered around my schedule and are super friendly. I didn't even have to meet the buyer!

I am so glad there's a service business like Carkibo around and highly recommend them because let's be honest, selling your car sucks and there are sketchy people out there on Craigslist.

Thank you Carkibo!

 
Vince D. | 2014-05-02

Carkibo sold my Acura within a week and got me $2,500 more than the dealerships!

I've sold cars before and remembered how painful the experience was so I was dreading the process but luckily a friend referred me this great service.

They took care of the entire process from inspection, marketing, to the dmv paperwork and made sure everything was convenient for me. These guys are real professionals and this is such a great idea.

I highly recommend using the Carkibo service if you don't have time to deal with the hassle of selling your car.
