Carisma Exclusive ~ 7 Day Return & 30 Day Exchange Policy

When you Buy a car from Carisma, we want you to be 100% Satisfied. Our 7 day return policy starts when you take delivery of your car from Carisma. If you change your mind about your purchase and decide to return your car, you will Call or Write before the 7th day after taking delivery to schedule a return time. During those 7 days you can drive as much as you like; after all, it is your car. Your Refund upon Return will be Pro-Rated by 88 cents per kilometer driven after taking delivery and a Restocking Fee of 8.8%. Warranty Value cannot be refunded. Vehicle must be returned in the condition it was in when purchased.  Our 30 Day Exchange Policy uses the same terms for Condition, Restocking and Pro Rated amounts per kilometer as our Return Policy, but allows you to Exchange for another Carisma car of equal or higher value. Our goal is simple...we want you to be 100% Satisfied with your purchase. 



Why Lose Money Trading In? Negotiate Smart with a Carisma Fair Value Trade Evaluation.

Everyone knows...Trading-in your car is convenient, but how do you know if a trade-in offer is fair?

Carisma offers a  Fair Value Vehicle Valuation to help you understand what your existing car is really worth as a Trade against another car.

Or...list your car with Carisma and put more in your pocket.

(Think of us like your "Wheel Estate Agent")


Why Invite Strangers to your Home? List & Sell Your Car with Carisma.

Selling privately means giving out your Name, Address and Telephone number to total strangers on the Internet...or meeting them in parking lots at night.   That might be okay for selling an old lawnmower, but it's no way to sell a car worth thousands of dollars. Carisma can sell your car for you from our safe, well-lit Bedford Showroom.  Our Fee is 8.8% of the Sale Price plus $288 for Advertising expenses.
