Amazing help from the very beginning of our car search. Spent many phone calls discussing what we wanted and when we couldn't get the exact car, an alternative was suggested that was fantastic.
A fabulous car, that was as described and great value! But most importantly the after sales service was beyond our expectations.
Helpful and honest. Would definitely buy the next car from them.
Charlotte and Justin Auckland
From start to finish the service Aboutcars offer is second to none.
All the stress of purchasing a car on the Canary Islands is taken away and everything was completed for us paperwork, name change etc.
A courtesy car was also provided to help us before ours was ready. We would definitely recommend Aboutcars to anybody who wants to buy a quality used car on the Canaries
Thank you Wieberen and Andrew for the excellent service you provide.
Tracey and Pete Coppard
This is the second car we have bought from About Cars - the first one was a Jeep Wrangler last year, which we've loved exploring the island in. Wieberen very patiently guided us through our inability to make a decision and came up with the Jeep, which was impeccable and came with the About Cars standard two-year guarantee and ITV.
Nothing was too much trouble for Wieberen and he even had a new back panel for the roof made for us in the United States when we were unable to source one here.
We told Wieberen we were looking for a large van so we could travel with our family and dog and he found us this great Renault Trafic in Gran Canaria and organised everything.
We would wholeheartedly recommend About Cars to anyone looking to buy a car here. Wieberen takes the stress out of buying a car, from sourcing, through paperwork and all the way to delivery and after-sales care. Thank you!
Kate and Rob
I decided to use Aboutcars to locate me a little Suzuki jeep as I was unable to find a dealer on Lanzarote.
I am pleased I did and they managed to find me exactly what I wanted prior to moving out to the island in December 2017.
I found the whole process to be stress free with all the documentation and insurance being dealt with by Aboutcars.
The Suzuki was delivered to me on Lanzarote after being serviced and cleaned and we are very happy with our purchase.
Alan and Sharon Pearce
This is the second time we have used Aboutcars, and as before Wieberen is really helpful and takes away all the stress of dealing with the paperwork and any after sales queries.
If anyone wants a stress free way to buy a car in the Canarias then About cars is the way to go.
David and Anne Platt
"As my old car broke down suddenly, I had to get a new one as soon as possible.
A colleague recommended Aboutcars to me and within 1 week from the 1st contact, Wieberen organised everything.
The car is in perfect condition and I can recommend it to everybody who wants to buy a good second hand car.
Thanks also to Andrew who delivered the car to my office!
I bought my first car through Aboutcars SL in 2015, the service was very professional and fast and the car is still great.
So when time came for my family to buy a second car, I did’t think twice. I called Wieberen again, and again he was professional, everything got arranged and I received my car with all the paperwork within 2 weeks.
I can only recommend this great company to people who are looking to buy good cars on the island.
I have been living on the island of Fuerteventura for nearly a year and at the end of November 2016 decided it was time to buy a car. It soon became clear that second hand cars would be more expensive than in the UK.
I looked at various Facebook style sites where people sold their own vehicles but the whole process of buying with all the spanish legal work totally put me off. Talking to friends i was told of "About Cars" and how they operated - everything spoken about them sounded great and as they spoke in English along with other languages, that too convinced me to find more about them.
I looked on the website and saw that the prices of the cars for sale would be within my budget so I sent a request explaining what I was looking for.
Within a day or two The Manager of About Cars - Wieberen called me and a couple of days later he came to meet me and we discussed the type of car I was after. Wieberen said he had a couple of Fiat Pandas (the car I was looking for) due to arrive on the island the following week. I gave him all the documentation he wanted from me and a few days later Wieberen emailed me photos and a full discription of the car.
I agreed on the price that was being asked for the car and for a little extra Wieberen said he would be able to do all the legal paperwork - change of ownership etc . he would also be able to sort my Car insurance which I had also been concerned about.
Two weeks after my original inquiry Wieberen delivered the car with all the paperwork duly processed, a brand new ITV test
Certificate, along with a two year warranty, my Insurance documentation etc.
I have been very impressed with the service that Wieberen and About Cars have provided and will be looking to use them again when it comes to up grading my car in the future.
Been hiring cars for a couple of years now.
Decided to buy, got in touch with Aboutcars through Facebook.
I was contacted by Wieberen who asked what I was looking for. He contacted me a couple of days later and brought a car over to Caleta for me to test drive.
I decided to buy and the whole experience has been very professional from start to finish.
He dealt with all the paperwork, so I can recommend this company to anyone wishing to buy.
Gloria and Tony
We bought a car at Aboutcars.
From the beginning to the end, everything is well-regulated to the necessary documents which is quite difficult abroad.
The car was delivered neatly at home.
We are very satisfied and recommend everyone.
Very satisfied customers
Marja and Niek D'Haene
My husband and I were looking for a car prior to moving to Corralejo. We used Aboutcars following a recommendation.
Wieberen found us the perfect car for our needs and all the paperwork was handled for us. The whole service from start to finish was excellent.
I would highly recommend using Aboutcars to anyone looking to purchase a car.
Both Andrew and Wieberen are very friendly and professional and all our questions were answered without hesitation. The car was delivered to us at a time and date convenient to ourselves and all the paperwork was ready and explained thoroughly.
Excellent customer service received throughout.
Mandy and Mickey Melrose
My husband and I have both purchased cars from Aboutcars.
The service was friendly helpful and informative.
Help from beginning to end of the process of buying a car in a different country which can be very difficult.
From our first phone call our experience has been very good. We would highly recommend Aboutcars for their customer service is exceptional.
Also their aftercare service again exceptional, very professional company friendly people.
Two very happy customers!!!!
Tina and Vince
Just took delivery of my Fiat 500 from About Cars. From start to finish the service has been excellent.
So stress free from choosing the car to having it delivered to me at the airport as I stepped off the plane. All questions we asked were answered quickly, paperwork sorted and thoroughly explained.
Would recommend purchasing your next vehicle from them in a flash. Thank you, thank you, thank you"
We have been looking for a car for some time, we came across Aboutcars on the internet. It was so easy to use, we told them the make and model and budget, they found the perfect car for us.
They did all the paperwork and delivered the car for us, all with in a week.
We are so pleased with the service and would not hesitate to recommend Aboutcars
Paul and Debra Howell
The company Wieberen runs, Aboutcars is excellent. I have nothing than praise for the service, the consideration and the thoroughness with which he deals with his customers.
He is honest, understanding of the needs of his customers and providing the best post-sale attention you can possibly get.
I recommend him thoroughly if you are buying a car in Fuerteventura."
We decided to buy a car just a few days before coming here for a year. I called Wieberen, and he found the perfect car for our family.
He did all the paperwork, and came to the airport with the car when we arrived. It was the perfect car for us. Fitted a family of five, and all our luggage and at a nice price.
We are very happy with the car, and thanks to Aboutcars for excellent service, and great follow up. The car is in good shape, and suits our family perfect.
We will recommend buying a car from Aboutcars
Kari and Ivar Soerra
"We have recently moved over and visited many of the local car dealers who advertise what appear to be relatively cheap cars but as per always there are catches.
I have seen the adverts for Aboutcars, so contacted them explained what I would like, met up with Wieberen who explained the ins and outs of the car market out here and made a few suggestions which although were very good were not what I wanted.
The next day he came back with Vw Amarok which I was taken with immediately and at a price I was happy with, also he was willing to source a load liner and bars which is a necessity for me (Extra Cost not excessive).
All local paperwork dealt with and the car arrived as described, fantastic service and I would highly recommend.
"We strongly recommend to anyone looking to buy a car in Fuerteventura contact Wieberen at Aboutcars. It only took one phone call and Wieberen came out to see us, we told him our budget and type of car we were looking for. He was so polite and helpful.
So two weeks later we took delivery of the car, all the paperwork taken care of and with a 2 year warranty . We were recommended to this company by a number of friends who have bought cars from him.
We were not disappointed, thank you Wieberen very much"
Sandra and Hubert Truman
Wieberen has been helping myself and my wife look for our ideal car for some time. Our situation was anything but straight forward but the level of customer service was above and beyond any expectation.
We finally got our dream car and are so pleased with the support and help given that I would recommend anybody looking to purchase a new or used car to contact them straight away. You will not be disappointed
Thank you Wieberen for all your help - and patience and Andrew for delivering our new car.
Tony and Maria Chirnside
Aboutcars is an excellent company who I strongly recommend for purchasing a quality used car on the Canaries. All aspects of the purchasing procedure was looked after from start to finish, paperwork, name change, insurance and MOT etc
Wieberen even delivered the car to the airport on our arrival to Fuerteventura, great service!
So pleased with the service etc that my wife and I have now bought a second car with Aboutcars!
To add to my review I am very pleased to say I now work for Wieberen as his After Sales/Marketing Manager!
Andrew and Jenny Jones
As a total stranger to Aboutcars, this is my third change of car and every other company before I have had problems with communication and lack of assistance.
I prefer to talk to people not answer machines or pushy salesman and Wieberen offered a great service from my initial enquiry all the way through to getting my lovely car.
I gave him a broad outine to what I wanted and he was able to provide me with an available car that suited my specific requirements.
I was delighted with my car and even when I recently put the wrong fuel in my car Wieberen was available to help me get back on the road very quickly.
Overall highly recommend for the great service from start to finish thank you.
The best car buying experience ever I have worked in the car trade in the UK and never come across anything to beat Wieberen at about cars.
He checked out the car's history arranged my insurance loaned me a car until mine was ready. The car also came with a 2 year warranty and a free service after the first year.
You would not get that sort of deal in the UK. Apart from that he is a really great guy.
We would definitely use Aboutcars again, everything was done for us making it so easy, that's just what we wanted, the car of our choice with no problems.
I was recently looking for a new car and my wife saw aboutcars.es on Facebook. Wow. They provide excellent service.
Within a very short period we had a beautiful car delivered to us in Lanzarote. All the finances were arranged for us. A wonderful, hassle free experience.
Thank you Wieberen and all at aboutcars.es.
We arrived in Fuerteventura a year ago and needed to buy a car, we asked the estate agent if they knew anyone and they said About Cars, we asked Woodside Cargo they said About Cars so obviously contacted them.
Wieberen met us and advised us what colour to buy because of the heat, what engine size would suit us etc very helpful indeed. They gave us a courtesy car while they found one for us.
They found us just what we asked for and we were very happy with our new car and still am.
Totally recommend About Cars, trustworthy, reliable and also very pleasant.
Mick and Sue Clifton
"I would like to thank everyone at Aboutcars for helping me with the whole car buying process. Wieberen helped with all the paperwork process, which would have been very daunting to do on my own, to say the least. The car itself is fantastic, it is in excellent condition, it suits my needs perfectly.
One of the reasons I chose Aboutcars was the 2 years warranty, and the servicing / ITV were all included with the vehicle price.
Andrew even brought the car across the islands enduring several ferry crossings to a place of my choice here in Tenerife. I would highly recommend Aboutcars to anyone located on any of the Canary Islands looking for a quality vehicle. Many thanks"
"Decided to buy our first car after living here for eight years. Wieberen visited us in Caleta to find out what we were looking for, then came over with a car which we took for a test drive.
All the paperwork, insurance etc was done for us and he took the car to meet us when we got off the ferry in Corralejo after a trip to Lanzarote.
Great service, very helpful, love the car. Thank you"
Colin and Lesley Mawdsley
This was a very easy car purchase. Right car, right price and with a 2 year warranty on major components I bought with confidence.
Wieberen was very helpful and efficient.
He even met us at the airport with the car, great service and I would recommend him.
After deciding to buy my wife a reasonable new car for her Birthday on the 5th February 2016, I contacted ABOUT CARS. I promptly received a call from Wieberen, the Manager. Explained that I was looking for a renault Captur from 2014, gave him my budget and he said he would look for the right car. With in 2 weeks he came back to me with a 2014 Renault Captur in Orange and cream roof and wing mirrors, just the colour we wanted. We then took it for a test drive and agreed to buy it. About Cars were great and Wieberen got all the paper work completed in time for my wife's Birthday. Very pleased with the car and the after sales service we receive from About Cars with 2 years warranty and 2 free services.
I would highly recommend this company for their attention to detail and their total understanding of customer perception. Once again thank you to Wieberen and about cars for a great service.
Probably the best recommendation anyone can have is by word of mouth, we were advised by friends, who had bought two cars from Wieberen, to try him, and we weren't disappointed. As we aren't on the island "full time", and were using hire cars to get about, finding what we were looking for was difficult. We got in touch with Wieberen whilst we were in the U.K and he eventually sourced a VW Polo for us to look at on our return to Fuerte. He brought the car to us, with absolutely no pressure to buy, explained all the legalities etc., said he would sort out all the paperwork, get the car serviced and insured and deliver it the following week, which he duly did, all we had to do was take our passports, house deeds and NIE number to the Town Hall in Antigua for documentation. Not speaking Spanish proved difficult and we managed to come away without the required papers, we rang Wieberen and he arranged to meet us there and sort it out for us. What a lovely guy! If you're looking to buy a car and are unsure of all the "in's and out's" then get in touch with AboutCars, you won't get any better service than this!!
Thanks again for all your help.
We had been on the Island for five weeks and needed a car. About Cars had been recommended to us as a good place to start looking.
Wieberen was helpful and informative he asked the type of car we wanted and the sort we had driven back in the Uk, so I guess you could say he matched the person to the car and does all the paperwork required as well.
Good guy to do business with, made car buying an enjoyable experience.
Steve and Dot Pirnie
We have being looking for a car for months and saw Aboutcars.es on Facebook. We rang them up and got talking to a Dutchman called Wieberen and told him how much we wanted to spend on a car. The same day we met him and he brought us the car he had which suited us, a lovely Yaris in great condition. So same day we purchased the car from him, he did all the paper work for us and in less than three days we had the car and are driving around! Very happy, so thank you Mr Wieberen for your excellent service and politeness, we will be back to you for our next car and will highly be recommending you to everyone. "
Phyllis and Bernard Moran
Being female, highly independent and extremely left-handed, I asked Wieberen Poelstra, Manager of "Aboutcars" to find me a automatic transmission vehicle. I had absolutely no idea regarding the make or model, only that I wanted to spend as little as possible! Furthermore, I did not mind what colour. An independent girlfriend recommended Aboutcars to me several years ago, when I was actually considering buying a motorhome. http://www.aboutcars.es/ is great to browse. With my vague demands, Wierberen's patience has been enduring. He sent me many images to unravel my requirements. I am now the proud owner of a shiny metallic brown Hyundai IX35. Unable to cope well with Spanish paperwork, Wierberen delivered the vehicle, drove me to the Town Hall and all name changes, the tax procedure, including a warranty with Hyundai and 2-year warranty with aboutcars. Wieberen’s dialogue is excellent with so many languages to take away the stress. Inside and the outside of the vehicle are spotless after a long day out yesterday! As yet unrequired Wieberen’s team of staff promise to provide a complete maintenance service so that I know I have help when I call. Thank you Aboutcars
Car Dealers generally make me nervous!
I need not have worried, Wieberen was excellent, fair, provided good service by delivering on his promises and most important of all.....the car itself has been excellent so far.
Themodelcamp Fuerteventura would like to welcome this little Italian chica Caliente to our team.
Aboutcars.es - Car Sales Canary Islands would highly recommend anyone looking to buy a car get in touch with these guys... Wieberen Poelstra thank you xxx
I bought my automatic Hyundai I30 car from Wiebren in November 2015 and have been delighted with it.
I would recommend Aboutcars without any hesitation. I had superb service and everything that was promised was delivered and Wiebren is a great person to do business with.
All paperwork was dealt with and hassle free. Worth every penny.
Nita Ann Brett
Many thanks for all your help, we choose about cars because we are english and after having bought two second hand cars and having problems with both from other dealers.
About cars even came to us to complete paperwork and deliver the car !
Many thanks we love it !
Carl and Stacey Oxenham
"I am very impressed with ABOUTCARS. From selecting the car, through the test drive to the sale itself everything was very smooth and relaxed. They attended to all the paperwork and even arranged the first ITV (MOT) nine months after I bought the car from them. ABOUT CARS is a model for how to do it properly.
We needed a car, two of our neighbours suggested we try Wieberen from Aboutcars. I met with him and told him the type of car and my price range. The next day he brought a car to me for a test drive. He had met both my requirements in type of car and price range,and the deal was done. Where Wieberen really excellent was in getting the paperwork sorted, not alone did he complete the car paperwork, he also sorted out a mix up in our NIE numbers. I would not of been able to manage this with my very limited Spanish. Wieberen made what can be a very challenging task very simple. When I need another car I will be going back to aboutcars and I will highly recommend Wieberen from Aboutcars to anyone in need of a car.
We are very happy with our new car, a nice Audi A4 Quattro, bought from Aboutcars.
Many thanks to Wieberen who advised us well, and of course, for us very useful, he speaks Dutch. He did all the paperwork: name change, insurance, road tax, so all totally perfect . We also have a 1 year warranty on the car. We are very satisfied with Aboutcars and our advice to anyone who needs a car is to speak to Wieberen - just call or email and everything will be fine.
Moos de Vries
My name is Telma Matias and I have lived in Fuerteventura for 4 years. In February I decided to buy a car. I visited some dealerships in Puerto del Rosario but on searching the internet I found Aboutcars. I liked a car and left my contact details for more information. The next day I got a call - the car that I liked was no longer available but Wieberen recommended another. Always by telephone or email, he gave me all the information about the car and necessary documentation. In less than 5 days I had my car, a Peugeot 207. I am very happy with the car and with the honesty and professionalism demonstrated by Wieberen. I recommend Aboutcars for those who decide to buy a car.
Thank you so much for everything!
We were looking for a car and had no idea where to start. We found you on Google and then the Fuertextra newspaper.
A telephone call to you, giving details of the car we would like, and you were onto it. After searching for a few days, you advised us not to buy the automatic we asked for, as we would pay a lot of money for transportation and import tax, from mainland Spain.
We took you advice,and much sooner than expected, you found our car. You brought it to Caleta de Fuste for us to make sure we were happy with it, and the following week, after a full service, you delivered the car to our door. The ITV was carried out as soon as you received the paperwork in Nicholas's name, which was about a week later. All this service from you and another full service next year, and a 2 year warranty!
We are very happy with our car ( Manual transmission!).
Your service and help was fantastic. You did all (and more) than you said.
We will definitely, confidently, recommend you to anyone wanting a good deal, service and straightforward purchase.
Oh yes! We have found one problem. The car gets dirty and we have to wash it!!
Very best wishes.

Decided earlier this year to buy a new car (to me) and the name recommended to me by numerous friends was Wieberen and About Cars. I can honestly say that every single person I spoke to gave him an excellent reference and he has more than lived up to them and has even surpassed my expectations.
He provided me with advice on which vehicle would suit my needs as I wanted a vehicle that is easy to drive but suitable for occasional overnight camping trips and also able to handle the North Shore track where I go surfing. He sourced two different car/vans for me to test drive before I made my decision. He then found me a great vehicle with low mileage and arranged for the vehicle to be transferred to Fuerteventura and have the windows blacked out too before I took delivery. The price was very competitive and the service excellent.
When I collected the vehicle, it was in immaculate condition and even had some fuel in the tank. There was an issue with the Bluetooth connection and my phone which meant that the car had to go back to Puerto to the Citroen garage and as I was leaving the island for some time for work, Wieberen very kindly offered to arrange all this for me so it was all working when I returned.
In summary, I wouldn't even consider buying a car from anyone else on the island now. 100% recommended.
Wieberen was recommended to me soon after I arrived in Fuerteventura. We arranged a meeting to discuss my requirements which included the car being automatic and low mileage. Over the next couple of weeks Wieberen phoned me with a number of options, one of which was the perfect car. He had it shipped over from one of the other islands, completed all the paperwork and arranged insurance cover for me.
He was polite, efficient and a pleasure to do business with.
We cannot recommend Wieberen from aboutcars highly enough. The standard of service and attention to detail you get from Wieberen is second to none. Wieberen initially met with us and asked the type of car and price range we wanted and then set about finding us exactly what we asked for. He constantly kept us updated in the process and even gave us a loan of a car while waiting. Once the car that fitted our exact requirements was gotten, a complete engine and body service was carried out. The car was delivered to us in showroom condition with a two year warranty and all relevant paperwork completed.
Fantastic to deal with such high professionalism and we have no problem in recommending aboutcars and Wieberen to anyone buying a car, just tell him what you want and he takes it from there and gets you exactly what you asked for.
Very happy customers
Michael and Patricia Bennett
This is the second car I have bought from Aboutcars and would highly recommend to anyone. Wieberen offers one of the best customer care services I have ever experienced. He makes the process of buying/selling a car, hassle free. He even gave me a courtesy car for a week, while I waited for my new car.
We would like to thank you for your help in the recent purchase of our car, we were recommended by our son , whom had recently purchased a car from you and was impressed by your attention you gave to him ensuring that the car he purchased was perfect for him, as so the service to us was equally impressive .
Raymond and Jo Crilley
9 years ago when I came to Fuerteventura I have bought a nearly new Renault Kangoo in "About Cars".
I was already with the service and the commitment the "manager" Mr Wieberen Poelstra very enthusiastic.
The Renault ran all these years reliably without flaws.
In August 2015 I was looking for a bigger and nicer car. I remembered About Cars and wrote Mr. Wieberen an Email with my ideas.
On the website www.aboutcars.es just no car was available, the time my very high expectations corresponded.
There should be an Audi Q5, BMW X5, Merzedes GLK or similar. In any case, with automatic.
Mr. Wieberen from Aboutcars contacted me immediately and promised
the ideal car to look for me.A few days later he presented me a Lexus RX450h
The car was exactly my expectations. Maintenance excellent and the price OK
I decided to buy the car. Aboutcars offered me 2 new front tires, to eliminate minor paint damage,
make a general service and the re-registration in my name to take over.
A few days later, "my new car" by Aboutcars delivered directly to my house.
When all of these services as well as the 2 year warranty rated, then you buy at About Cars quality cars for the best possible price.
I can only recommend About Cars. Each of a used car in good condition examined it will be found at About Cars.
This is the second car we purchased through aboutcars and we are extremely pleased with it and the excellent service given. Aboutcars took care of all the paper work and was efficient, professional and very helpful. The after care service is outstanding and Wieberen is always on the end of the phone if you need him. We have recommended www.aboutcars.es to our friends as it makes buying a car in Fuerteventura so easy. When and if we want to change our car we will contact www.aboutcars.es again.
Thank you so much for making our dream 2015 Mini Cooper come true and then some! We LOVE IT!
From day one you were above and beyond fantastic to work with. Responsive, attentive, helpful, fast, informative, easy to work with, excellent continual communication through entire process. It was an excellent enjoyable experience beginning to end and you made the entire car buying process so easy for us.
We cannot thank you enough Wieberen and you will be the 1st person we ring when ready for next vehicle.
Lorrie & James LaTrobe-Bateman
I've bought two vehicles through AboutCars. The first was a Citroen C3 in 2008 which I changed for a Ford Ranger in 2014. Aboutcars not only found my replacement vehicle for me but handled all the paperwork and quickly found a buyer for my Citroen. As the new owner wanted to take it immediately, Aboutcars leant me a curtesy car for the short time until the Ranger was ready. He's fluent in a number of languages and his after-sales service is second to none. I would highly recommend Aboutcars to find you the car you want and to help you in any way he can.
About Cars was recommended to us by friends. Their positive comments of the service he offered certainly turned out to be true
Aboutcars made the sourcing, selection, and administration concerns we had of purchasing a car here in Fuerteventura disappear. He provided a very personal, efficient and trouble free process and through his careful vehicle sourcing and after sales service gave us confidence in the purchase of our vehicle.
We would recommend About cars to anyone looking to buy a vehicle here in the Canaries.
Chris and Caroline McLearie
My husband and i desperately needed a new car and About Cars was recommended to us by a friend. We were delighted with the service provided by Weiberen. He made the process so simple and took all the stress out of the purchase, preparing all the paperwork, bringing the car to us, even arranging insurance for us. If you have experience of 'officialdom' such as Traffico, finance companies etc here in Spain, you will understand the process is not always simple and seems to involve a mountain of paperwork, visits to offices and lots of waiting. As parents to two young children, and working full time, we really didn't have time for this. Purchasing our car from About Cars has probably been the most pleasant car buying experience yet and i would not hesitate to recommend this company. Thank you!
Restaurant An Caisteal Corralejo
We would like to thank Wieberen from Aboutcars for the outstanding level of service provided in buying a car!
In just over a week, he came to see us to discuss our requirements, brought us the perfect car to test drive and then took care of all the paperwork and insurance for us.
We highly recommend Aboutcars to anyone looking for a quality vehicle, the whole process was fast, efficient, professional and friendly.
This is the second occasion I have used About Cars to purchase a vehicle. On both occasion Wieberen's attention to detail to ensure he provides the right vehicle has been impeccable. His advise on the right vehicle to buy in Fuerteventura has been invaluable.
As this was the second vehicle I've purchased since I moved to Fuerteventura the transaction also involved selling my first car as part of the transaction. About Cars handled the sale and obtained a good price for the vehicle and provided a curtesy car pending the arrival of my new car. Once again I have received exelaint service and will recommend About Cars to anyone wanting to buy a car.
Kind regards Martin
We were recommended to Wieberen at AboutCars by Nick from GoldAcre Estates. What a positive experience this turned out to be. After finding out our requirements, and showing us a sample of the vehicles he had, we decided on a Skoda Fabia Combi. We agreed to a test drive, so he brought the car to us and after trying the car we decided to go ahead and buy it.
On our return to Fuerteventura, he met us at the airport with the vehicle and all documents to complete the sale. As if this was not enough, he further went out of his way to help us to navigate the local administration requirements, making the whole process painless and smooth.
We would recommend Aboutcars, without any reservation, to anyone who wished to purchase a car in Fuerteventura.
As a footnote, his local knowledge put us on the right path to other local people and services as well.
A very nice man with a lovely family, so helpful.
Marlene and Tom Mailey
I purchased a car from Aboutcars I am very happy with the Toyota I purchased, Wieberen extremely helpful and very professional, also am impressed with after service provided, I would recommend him to anyone who is thinking of purchasing a car.

About Cars found us the a car to match our requirements perfectly. Their fast, friendly and personal service gave us confidence in them and we are highly delighted with the car we bought from them.
Nothing seemed too much trouble when we had a very small number of things that needed sorting out. Giving us a courtesy car whilst ours was being looked at. They even helped us sort out the paperwork necessary here on the island to purchase and insure the car.
When we need a replacement car we will have no hesitation in using About Cars again.
David and Karen, El Cotillo.
I recently bought a Suzuki vitarra from aboutcars.es and I have been very happy with the car, the service I received and the overall package. All the paperwork and ITV was done for me even a little plug missing from a wheel arch replaced.
I have already recommended aboutcars to several friends here in El Cotillo and would be quite happy to recommend them to anyone interested in buying a good quality second hand car without any stress attached.
I recently bought a car from aboutcars and cant recommend highly enough. My neighbours recommended aboutcars to me and i have never looked back . from start to finish nothing as been to much trouble. I will only ever deal with this company again in the future , i trust it 100% and am very happy with my new car which runs like a dream. If you are looking for a reliable company and a reliable car then you need look no further than about cars. A big thankyou from mrs and mr evans for all your help which has been above and beyond hope to do business again with you in the future .
When we moved to Fuerteventura in June 2014 we quickly realised that buying a car here is not as straightforward as it was in the UK, and friends suggested calling 'About Cars', whom they had used themselves. To say Wieberen from Aboutcars 'goes the extra mile' would be an understatement! He met with us and discussed our needs in detail - my wife particularly wanted an automatic 4x4 - then set about searching for us. Through his extensive contacts and resources Wieberen was able to find us a beautiful low-mileage Honda CRV, with all the extras we wanted, for an excellent price. He delivered the car to us himself, in showroom condition, and the whole process was made so easy.
A few months later we decided to treat ourselves to a two-seater convertible, and contacted Wieberen again. These are rare in the Canaries, we knew, but he managed to find an absolutely stunning MX5 on the mainland for us, very low mileage and immaculate. Again, it was delivered to us with no hassle, all the paperwork taken care of, backed up by 'About Cars' service and warranty. Both cars have been faultless, a joy to drive, and we have no hesitation in recommending 'About Cars' to anyone who values good old-fashioned customer service!
...if I've missed anything important, I'm happy to make changes! Also quite happy for my details to be used.
To whom it may concern
My name is J Dugdale and I would like to recommend Aboutcars but also I would like to recommend the agent In Fuerteventura as they made it all so easy to get the car and they did all the paper work and other things that go with cars it was all a pleasure thank you Aboutcars
We searched the web looking for a car dealer in Fuerteventura and came across Aboutcars and they had some glowing testimonials from previous clients.
Having got in touch we were not disappointed, We specified the make, model, age, mileage, color and our budget and within a matter of days we were contacted with photos of what was to become the car we purchased. Seven days after arriving in Fuerteventura we took delivery of our car complete with Tax paid, Mot, all paperwork in my name, 2 weeks 100% guarantee, Full service including 4 new tyres + a second full service after 10,000km and a 2 year warranty, they even organized my insurance for me.
What more could we ask for, we would recommend Aboutcars to any one.

Having made the life changing decision to start a new life in Fuerteventura, my partner Mary and I have been extremely fortunate in receiving excellent recommendations from those who have travelled down the same road before us.
The very strong recommendation of Aboutcars was no exception. We both knew very little on the subject of cars and were very concerned that we might end up buying entirely the wrong kind of vehicle on the island at the wrong price and end up beset with problems.
We need not have worried. Aboutcars provided us with the kind of highly professional, personal service which you might think had gone right out of fashion.
He carefully weighed up our needs and requirements on price, comfort and proposed usage and after a couple of test drives of different vehicles, we plumped for a smooth driving, surprisingly spacious and newish Renault Clio.
We are delighted with the vehicle which purrs along the road and equally impressed with Aboutcars Company who sold it to us. It is nice to know that when it comes to doing business, aside from all the con merchants and tricksters, there are still industrious young guys like Wieberen who really look after their customers and take a professional pride in everything they do.
If you are thinking of purchasing a vehicle in the Canary Islands, we would have no hesitation in recommending Aboutcars as your very first port of call.
Thanks again Wieberen for all your time, patience and outstanding service.

I am very pleased with the service provided by About Cars. I had just arrived to live in Fuerteventura and I was very wary of car salesmen and the secondhand car market. I discussed the type of car I needed with Aboutcars who then sourced a 4 x4 from Gran Canaria. It was in excellent condition, and just what I needed. About Cars made the whole thing very easy, and I would recommend to anyone looking for a car to use his services. Thanks About Cars!
ABOUTCARS DOES IT AGAIN....
About 18 months ago when we first came to the Island, we bought our first car (Renault Megane) from Aboutcars. We were delighted with that and also very impressed with the service that Aboutcars provided, so much so that we wrote a testimonial at the time.
Time has passed and although there was absolutely no problem with the Megane we wanted to discover less accessible parts of this lovely Island. Naturally we got in touch with Aboutcars. We told Aboutcars the car we were looking for (Nissan Juke), the color we wanted, the age and maximum mileage and our budget. Three weeks later Aboutcars came up with the goods. Within our timescale, budget and everything else, he gave us a very fair exchange price for our Megane the same like in our first purchase. Aboutcars organized all the paperwork. Once again it has been a real pleasure dealing with him. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him to other customers. If he does not have the car you are looking for on his website, let him know your requirements and I would be extremely surprised if he doesn't find you a perfect match. Thank you once again, Aboutcars.

I was recommended aboutcars.es by a colleague of mine and what a great recommendation it was. I needed a low milage car and I needed it very quick. I got exactly the car i wanted in less than 2 weeks from our first meeting. I got a fantastic car, including the warranty for a fantastic price and even the car insurance had been arranged for me. I said, what I want, when I want it and I got exactly that. All I had to do was sign the paper work and take the key. I am very pleased about how smooth and quick everything was. I would definitely recommend aboutcars.es
Overall 5* service. Ivana - one very happy customer.

Having owned a property in Fuerteventura for 5 years and spending more time on the island we decided it was time to buy our own car rather than spend money on rentals. I was nervous about all the paperwork that comes with buying a car abroad and not being a Spanish speaker was another complication. We came across Aboutcars online and contacted Wieberen. We told him what our first choice of car would be and within a few days he had found us exactly what we were looking for, right down to the colour. He was also offering 2 years warranty which is unusual. Most other companies offer a year. We had shopped round and felt that his price was competitive. He took care of all the paperwork and delivered the car to the house, explaining everything in full. The car was like new although two and a half years old. Not a single scratch. He was both punctual and extremely professional. I would certainly recommend Aboutcars to anyone looking to buy a car in Fuerteventura. The whole transaction was simple and straightforward and I would have no hesitation in using them again when the time comes.

We found the Aboutcars website on the internet before moving permanently from the UK to Fuerteventura in March 2014. On arriving we contacted Aboutcars and spoke to Wieberen. He arranged to meet us in Caleta De Fuste, saving us a journey. There we agreed to purchase a Seat Leon and also agreed the price.
Aboutcars arranged all the necessary paperwork for us (our Spanish is very limited). He also provided a loan car free of charge until our car was ready for delivery (having been MOT'd and fully serviced etc).
The car is a dream to drive. We would certainly go back to Aboutcars again.
Impeccable Service, Professional, Accessible, Reliable = AboutCars!
Thanks to Aboutcars for the excellent service, and for the support he has provided us. Thank you from the Shock Wave Surfing School Team!
Mid-October of this year (2013) we sold our property in France to move to Fuerteventura. Having sorted out a rental property, our next major purchase was a car. Not speaking the language and not understanding the procedures and necessary paperwork, I was not looking forward to this.
We found Aboutcars , and were impressed by the range of stock they had, and extremely pleased to read that they took care of all the paperwork. We read the testimonials, but to be honest were a bit sceptical that they may have been fabricated. Let me tell you, having completed the process, those testimonials are genuine. To say that Wieberen went the extra mile regarding customer service would be an understatement. We had a hiccup with our house sale in France which meant a delay in having the funds available for the car we had chosen. Wieberen picked us up from the airport and loaned us a courtesy car for a week. This was despite only being able to give him half the normal deposit needed to secure the car. We had to fly back to france a week later to conclude our house sale, and again on our return Wieberen was at the airport to meet us, complete with the car and all the documentation. He had even sorted out our car insurance. At a day when many businesses seem to have lost the concept of customer service and satisfaction, Aboutcars have it at the heart of their business. We are extremely well pleased with the car we purchased, and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Aboutcars to other customers.Thank you again, Wieberen.
Buying a used car in a foreign country can be quite a scary process. About Cars however, takes away all of the mystery and makes the process of car-buying very easy.
About Cars is an excellent and totally professional company. We received excellent advice from Wieberen regarding the most suitable car for our needs and he then found the perfect car for us. Wieberen then brought the car to Costa Calma from Puerto del Rosario so that we could inspect it and take a test drive. The car was exactly as he described it over the phone, low mileage and in excellent condition. Wieberen took care of all of the documentation required for change of ownership and advised us on the authorisation which we needed from the ayuntamiendo. About Cars works closely with Seinauto in Puerto del Rosario and they do all the servicing and repairs for them. Seinauto also are very friendly, speak excellent english and are thoroughly professional. About Cars have an excellent reputation and based on our experience they fully deserve it. We highly recommend Wieberen and will definitely consult About Cars again when we need to change our car.

Hi - my name is Nick Walsh, and I've lived almost 20 years in Fuerteventura. In that time, I've come across rip-off lawyers, builders, accountants, doctors, dentists etc.I was therefore happily surprised when I contacted Wieberen at Aboutcars, in order to buy a 'nearly new' car.From the start, he was absolutely correct - punctual with appointments, on the phone/email when necessary, always available.He was able to sell my 11-year-old Renault Kangoo at a good price, and found me a two and a half-year-old Ford KA Titanium, which I love! I highly recommend him, and will do business with him again in the future.
When you take the decision to move to another country you really do need people to put you on the right path, but finding those people who are honest, reliable and trustworthy I can imagine could be hard, fortunately we were introduced to Wieberen from Aboutcars used car sales Fuerteventura. He has gone above and beyond to help in every way, finding us the right vehicle and explaining the legal requirements, which of course are different from what you are used to. We cannot thank him enough for making our driving experience in a different country a pleasure and not a headache as you feel you have somebody reliable behind you.

I first purchased a car from Aboutcars car sales Fuerteventura in 2007. Since then I have recommended him to many others . Aboutcars has always helped with all the necessary paperwork for the vehicles. The after care he continually offers is first class. Full care for his clients and his vehicles at all times. Highly recommended

As an Estate agent, my business involves taking clients to view properties; thus I was looking for a smart car, roomy enough for 4 adults, reliable ...and should I have any issues, a dealer who would be able to assist me urgently. Without a reliable car, my business would suffer immensely.
I got in contact with Wieberen and he explained that his service included 2 years warranty, completion of all the paperwork, taxed, and ready to go. A few days later, Wieberen called to inform me that he not only had a car to meet my requirements, but was actually less than the budget I had set. I was informed the car would be ready for delivery in 2 weeks’ time, and was very surprised that he offered me a loan car in the interim without any cost…most impressive! Having took delivery of the car, it was just what I was looking for, and as he promised, was ready and legal to use from day one. During 3 years of ownership, the car had a couple of minor faults, which was dealt with at his first opportunity to assist…just as he promised.
If you are looking for a quality car with the excellent service I received, I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Wieberen at About Cars. Wieberen runs his business in a very comparable manner….and has now become a very good friend, which is how I operate.

I'd like to thank you and Aboutcars for all the assistance you provided when I purchased my car. It made the process so easy.
You sourced the type car I wanted quickly and advised me which cars are more suitable, preventing me from choosing a model where parts are difficult to obtain. Having the car brought to my home to test drive was also a big advantage. I'd also like to thank you for, negotiating with the insurers and obtaining additional discounts on the premium, and accompanying me to the local Town Hall to obtain my Empadramiento.
Once again thanks very much for all the help Aboutcars has given me to purchase a car in Fuerteventura. A task which I understand can be full of pitfalls and legal complication all of which you handled and made it an easy for me.
Finally I'd like to thank you for providing a clean well maintained car at a suitable price. It fulfils my specifications exactly.
We were looking for a van and a friend of mine recommended that we check out Aboutcars.
I contacted Wieberen from Aboutcars and he immediately began looking for our ideal van.
He managed to find a very nice VW Transporter T5 for us, just what we were looking for! Wieberen from Aboutcars proved himself to be very forthright and honest during our all our dealings together and we were left with a very good feeling. Aboutcars offers a top quality service and also very good warranties. If at any point a problem should arise, there is always someone on hand to help. Also, being very proficient in English, Spanish, German and Dutch, Wieberen can easily deal with any problems which may crop up and has no problem answering any questions you may have.
There´s no doubt whatsoever where we´ll be buying our next car from!
After having been living in Fuerteventura for quite some time, the time had finally arrived to buy myself a car. I had my heart set on a 4x4! However, as we all know, car dealers have a reputation of being, shall we say, less than trustworthy - promising you the world and often failing miserably to deliver. Also, as a woman, I am well aware that we are sometimes viewed as “soft targets” and “easily fooled” ( not always true by the way...).
Anyway, to cut a long story short, my Spanish teacher gave me a phone number and recommended that I get in touch with a guy on the island who he had previously used and successfully done business with, ensuring me that he was very honest and 100% trustworthy.
His name is Wieberen, a Dutchman with his own company Aboutcars, he has lived on Fuerteventura for many years and knows his way around.
His business ethic is very, very simple- Aboutcars deals only in quality vehicles, no wrecks!!!! Thanks to Wieberen, I got my car - not a single scratch, brand new tires, new brakes, guaranteed until 2013, aircon, clean (no lingering aroma of tobacco!), radio/CD player, spotless upholstery etc. Fantastic!
My car looks as though it´s come straight from the showroom! All I can say is, if you are thinking of purchasing a car, you won´t find anyone more reliable or trustworthy than Aboutcars!
Three years ago we opened up our Surfschool named FreshSurf in El Cotillo. Last year we needed a van and
Wieberen from About Cars supported us in our search for the ultimate surfschool 9 seater van. He is absolutely reliable and if he tells you something you can take his word as guaranteed. About Cars stands for high quality cars and a great service. We are happy to find a car dealer and company we can trust in. After buying another second van the end of 2011 we are more than convinced: “The next car we buy it will be at About Cars again".

Upon arriving in Fuerteventura, we desperately needed a car to get around. We didn´t know anyone, but we discovered About Cars on the internet. Right from the beginning, they displayed a high level of professionalism and seriousness. In just a couple of months, we had ourselves a fantastic Mitsubishi Montero! More recently, we found ourselves in need of a second car and About Cars found us a Jeep Wrangler, which we are also extremely pleased with. The post-sales service is also excellent and great value!

When I moved to Fuerteventura in April 2011 my first priority was to purchase a car. The most recommended name that came up was Wieberen, owner of About Cars. I met with Wieberen several times where he was more than happy to discuss my requirements without any pressure to buy. Upon deciding that this was the company i could trust, Wieberen found the perfect car for me and even went out of his way to collect the car from Tenerife, again without pressure to buy! The car, a Seat Ibiza, was immaculate. I bought the car with all legal requirements, paper work and a full service prior to delivery taken care of as part of the service offered. I am now settled in Fuerteventura having opened Bar Jellyfish in the Campanario Corralejo. My car has been extremely reliable for business and personal use. Wieberen has proven himself to be one of the most helpful and trustworthy individuals I have met. His company 'About Cars', I suggest is the first and only place you should consider buying your car from.

I´m Stefan, owner of the shop “Piel De Melocoton”, and I live in Corralejo, Fuerteventura.
Almost three years ago, I bought a Ford Ranger from About Cars and I am extremely satisfied with both the price I paid and the quality of service I received. As regards the car, I can honestly say that, during those three years, all I´ve had to do is replace the tyres last year! Very happy! I would recommend getting in contact with About Cars to anyone who is looking for a good car!!!
During the past 5 years I have bought 2 cars from About Cars and have been completely satisfied with the level of service provided, both in the purchase of the vehicles and in the aftercare. The cars have been supplied in perfect condition and with all paperwork complete so that the whole process has been hassle free. The aftercare assistance provided by About Cars has extended way past the warranty period and I would have no hesitation in recommending About Cars to anyone considering buying a car in Fuerteventura.
My name is Stefano Marchetti and I´ve lived in Fuerteventura for the past 10 years. I am the owner of “Buena Onda”, a bar in Corralejo. 8 months ago, I bought a 2006 Mitsubishi Montero 4x4 from About Cars.
I am extremely satisfied with the professionalism and efficiency of the service they provided and I always recommend to any of my clients who are considering purchasing a vehicle, that they get in touch with About Cars.
