How carhunt.ie Works

Simply “browse cars” uploaded by dealers on our online showroom.

Select up to 4 cars you are interested in. These can be any make, any model, anywhere in the country.

We will ask you a few basic questions to help the dealer put a clear offer to you.

1

Select your car

Select up to 4 cars of your choice in our online showroom. 

These can be any make, any model, from any dealer nationwide. 

2

Offer your trade-in

If you have a car to trade in, follow our simple guidelines to present your current car to the dealer using your smartphone - Don’t worry, we make it simple!

Dealer transparency

carhunt.ie gets you the keenest deal by allowing your dealers to see each other's offers!

Whilst we offer our dealers privacy by obscuring their identities from each other, we allow them to see what make, model, year and spec of car you have requested a quote for. Monthly payments and prices to change from competing dealerships are also visible.

The end result? Transparent competition and a great deal for you!

OK, I’ve made my selection and I’ve uploaded my trade-in. What happens then?

You’ll be asked to set a time limit for your dealers to respond within. You can choose 24, 48 or 72 hours. Every dealer you have requested a quotation from can revise or change their quote as many times as they wish until the time limit you set runs out. You will be notified by email each time you receive a new offer.

So is the deal done online?

No. We understand that you may prefer to meet the dealer and see the car in person before completing the sale. If you are happy to proceed with a quote, you can contact the dealer to arrange to close the deal in person.
