Before listing cars for sale on the website, Motus dealers ensure the vehicles in question are tested by Dekra, a leading independent supplier of roadworthy certificates and technical inspections.

Dekra’s SA operation is a joint venture with parent company, Dekra Germany, which was established in 1925. The enterprise operates in 27 European countries as well as the US, Brazil, China and Morocco.

Before issuing a report, Dekra technicians subject each car to a stringent road test and use their vast experience to assess engine performance, the steering and brakes, as well as to verify that the vehicle does not show signs of unexpected noises, vibrations or mechanical problems.

That said, this report is more than just a roadworthy test.

Dekra’s thorough inspection process includes expert technicians checking everything from the engine, brakes and suspension, to the electrics and individual components throughout the vehicle. The latest diagnostics technology is used to check for any potential hidden faults and diagnose their exact cause, if necessary.
