VEHICLE SEARCH
Use our unique auction search engine to find vehicles. At the moment, we provide our customers with the widest auction search of any company existing on the market. You can use the search for a non-emergency car at the two largest auctions Manheim and Adesa, as well as search for an emergency car at the two largest insurance auctions Copart and IAAI. For a more comfortable experience, we added a Russian translation of the auction sheet, as well as information about the vehicle's power and fuel consumption to the vehicle card. In addition, each Caromoto client gets FREE access to an AutoCheck history report for each vehicle. This report offers detailed information about the owners, mileage, accidents, or any other damage reported in the US or Canada.
If you do not have time to look for a car yourself, then entrust this process to our professional staff. They will select the best car based on your requirements and your budget. You will only have to make a purchase decision. ORDER on the selection of the car, you can fill in the main page.
