Brussels, October 10 2019 – CarNext.com, a pan-European online marketplace for high-quality used cars, today launches their fully online car buying proposition in Belgium, featuring an industry first payment-transfer solution and 14-day money back guarantee.
CarNext.com’s new digital proposition, enables customers anywhere in Belgium to buy high-quality used cars fully online, with free home delivery. All cars sold online, or in-store come with a twelve-month warranty, 14-day money back guarantee and full maintenance history.
The announcement coincides with the opening of the third CarNext.com Delivery Store in Belgium, located in Liège, where customers have the opportunity to see and test-drive their high-quality used car before purchase.
CarNext.com CEO, Ewout van Jarwaarde said: “Belgium customers deserve to be able to buy their next car, their way and have trust in the process from start to finish. Traditionally buying a used car has been an offline process, generally untrustworthy and not transparent – and that includes the payment process. With our fully online used car buying proposition, we put the power firmly in the hands of the car buyer, who only need to transfer the money once they are satifised with their purchase. This is a big step forward for the online used car market and for e-commerce in general.”
Belgium Managing Director for CarNext.com, Jo Torrekens said: “It’s very exciting to be the first used-car marketplace in Belgium that can provide customers with a fully-online used car buying experience. We’re also thrilled to be opening our third Delivery Store, where customers will be able to see and test-drive the cars they are interested in before purchasing. The opening of this store reinforces our commitment to offer our customers hassle-free, transparent and flexible mobility solutions in a way that works for them.”

Notes to Editors
- Fully online means that the entire process of buying a car can be completed online – everything from payment to delivery. Outside of this unique CarNext.com offering, it is common, even among online platforms, for customers to have to complete some part of the process offline. For example, the buyer has to go and pick up the car themselves, or arrange payment upon receiving the vehicle
- CarNext.com has removed these inconveniences by creating an industry first secure process, where customers only need to complete payment once they are happy with their purchase. Customers transfer funds into an escrow account held by a third-party and the customer controls the release of these funds to CarNext.com once a customer has entered a six digit code which is unique to them and their purchase
- On CarNext.com each car has an all-in fixed price. All cars go through a 228 point check before being listed on the marketplace, are equipped with the latest safety features, meet the latest environmental standards and have a full maintenance history. All cars come with a 14-day money back guarantee
- The new Delivery Store is located in an industrial area just outside Liège and is easily accessible via the E25 motorway. It is a short 5 drive from the city centre and serves as a means of engaging customers who want an in-person car buying experience
