Here's how we do business...


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 Red Seal cars are inspected by NAPA, where your car receives a fresh Oil Change and any required Service for a new Nova Scotia 2 Year MVI. 



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. 

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




We Sell Good Cars Because We Buy Good Cars

At Carisma, every Red Seal 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 Red Seal cars are selected for Value... so you can buy confidently.


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 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.


100% Satisfaction


7 Day Return 30 Day Exchange

Our Return and Exchange policies are designed to reassure you that buying from Carisma won't be a decision you regret later.

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 a Carisma Red Seal car 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.
