Transparency

 Transparency implies openness, communication, and accountability. ~wikipedia

At Carisma, we think transparency is a two-way street, as is mutual respect. We strive to be straightforward, open and clear with our Customers...and ask for the same in return from you. 

Here's how we do business...

SAFETY FIRST - New MVI

You Need a New MVI

Lots of people don't know this...but to properly Register a car in Nova Scotia, 

(whether your buy Privately or at a Dealer)  you need to have a new MVI.


Carisma cars are Double Inspected...first by an Independent Mechanic to ensure frame integrity...then by NAPA, where your car receives a fresh Oil Change and any required Service for a new Nova Scotia 2 Year MVI.


Whether you are buying Privately or from a Dealer, a new MVI is required to Register your car. Carisma Double Inspects for your safety and uses NAPA because of their national reputation for quality service.


Your Safety Comes First.

You Deserve to be Treated Properly

Whatever the weather, relax in our clean, family-friendly Bedford Showroom. 


You can even kick off your shoes while looking over the car on our carpeted floor. Then we'll review the CARFAX, Warranty and Total Price with you. 


You're about to spend several thousand dollars for a car... you deserve to be treated fairly, properly and with respect.

HAND PICKED FOR VALUE

We Sell Good Cars Because We Buy Good Cars

At Carisma, every car is hand-picked, double-inspected and thoroughly tested before and after MVI. Our goal is simple: we want to help you buy a Good Car at a Great Price. That way, everyone's happy and we all win.


Unlike a new car, every used car is different. We don't buy or sell simply by "year" or "odometer" or price them based on a standard profit formula like the mega-dealers. We consider 500+ cars for every 1 car we choose.


Carisma Cars are hand-picked for overall Value... so you can buy confidently.

NO MATH TRICKS

No "Admin" or Hidden Fees

Maybe it started with Airline Tickets, we're not sure...but the practice of Advertising a low price in BIG LETTERS!!, with a bunch of tiny legal jargon where all the extra fees and charges are buried...is lame.


Carisma has no "Administation Fees", no "Document Preparation Fees" or other hidden fees to make the Price look artificially lower than it really is.  


At Carisma:  Price + HST = Total Price Out The Door, MVI & Warranty Included.

Carisma's Total Price Is Always Better Value.

7 Day Return 30 Day Exchange

We know and believe in the cars we sell...standing behind what we sell flows naturally from that. Put simply, we want you to be happy with your purchase, because happy customers can become repeat customers.


Knowing you can return or exchange the car you buy reduces worry and second-guessing...our pro-rated return and exchange policies are Carisma's way of letting you know that your complete satisfaction is important to us.

warranty protection

Carisma Cars Come With Warranty

Unexpected breakdowns are time-consuming and expensive, so having Warranty Protection plays an important role in car ownership. 


New cars all come with warranty...why would you consider buying a used car without the security of a good warranty? 


Carisma includes a Lubrico Warranty in the full advertised price of every MVI'd car we sell. Want Extended Warranty Protection? Up to 3 Years or 60,000 km are available. Plus, you could win the Car You Buy when you purchase a 2 or 3 year plan. (See lubrico.com for contest details.)


For peace of mind protection, insist upon a Lubrico Warranty.

People are busier than ever. Smart shoppers now do their car shopping at home, at night, or at work during lunch...then go see select cars in person.

Carisma is a better way to buy. Our Kijiji ads are the most thorough you will find. All the important Details, Specs, Policies, lots of High Resolution Pictures... and a Price without any "Admin Fees" or other "surprises".


Does one of our cars interest you? No matter what time of Day or Night, you can Self-Book an Appointment to see that car in our Bedford Showroom at a time convenient to you.  (Tip: Early Evening and Weekend Times outside Business Hours are available by Appointment.)
