Who is behind CAR FOR YOU?
In 2017 the Swiss companies Tamedia and AXA decided to join forces and shake it up the car sales market in Switzerland. The joint venture CAR FOR YOU was created. We are a young team from +14 nations, working in Zurich and putting our whole heart and soul into offering you the best experience when buying a car.

Does CAR FOR YOU sell cars?
CAR FOR YOU is an independent platform and does not sell or market it's own cars. Transactions are directly made with the dealership.
Who decides if an offer is fair or not?
The CAR FOR YOU price sore shows you, how fair the listed price is compared to similar car's prices. The algorithm makes use of 10 years of Swiss car listing data and calculates if the offer is within market value. The model cannot be cheated. Dealerships do not have a possibility to alter the result of the price score. However, the check does not take into account the quality of the dealers service work, the condition of the interior as well as non-standard equipment that was added later. The price score does not replace a personal visit at the dealership.

On the listing page you find detailed information about the car and the possibility to contact the dealer via email or phone.
