CarZar is South Africa's latest Internet startup – an online marketplace for previously loved cars. Founded by two tech entrepreneurs, Fernando Pinheiro and Michael Miller, the duo have ambitions to change the way South Africans sell cars after being frustrated with the hassle of selling their own cars quickly. Cape Town-based venture capital firm, Silvertree Capital, saw the potential in the business model and together the team plans to build the leading online transactional marketplace for previously owned cars. A data-based algorithm can evaluate previously loved vehicles online in just 30 seconds. If the owner is happy with the evaluation, they can book a free inspection and receive a cash offer in less than 30 minutes. Same day payment is received and CarZar takes care of all the paperwork.
