      Our 130-point check: no vehicle makes it to the Hippo Approved showroom without having gone through and passed our 130-point maintenance check at our state-of-the-art service centre. This a comprehensive investigation of the vehicle, covering 130 key checks across the engine, brakes, transmission, suspension, steering and exterior and interior condition to ensure it arrives to you in the best possible condition.

      Our free 3-month warranty: each of our used cars comes with a complimentary Hippo Protect three-month warranty to cover any unexpected issues encountered in the first three months. You also have the option to extend this warranty cover up to three years.

      Our 14-day money-back guarantee: if you change your mind about your vehicle for any reason, you have the option to exchange it or get your money back any time within the first two weeks of purchase*.
