scheckterspeed is an online used car sales platform that gives private car owners access to an extensive network of pre-approved dealerships. Daily online auctions allow dealerships to bid for vehicles to ensure every private car owner gets the best possible price.
The name ‘Scheckter’ is synonymous with motorsport – an eminent racing family and a household name both in South Africa and internationally.
Ian (six times South African Champion and a Formula One racing driver) and his brother Jody (1979 World Formula One Champion with Ferrari) have both been inducted into the South African Hall of Fame.
The legendary son-and-father team, Jaki and Ian, established scheckterspeed in 2021, with Jaki Scheckter as director.
The family’s wealth of knowledge about the automotive industry, a widespread network of associates and the South African consumer’s increasing comfort with e-commerce transactions have led to the establishment of scheckterspeed as a world-class sales platform.
Born with a hearing impairment, Jaki hears bilaterally via Advanced Bionics Cochlear Implants. He did not allow this to slow him down in his racing or business career. He recently established the Jaki Scheckter Hearing Foundation to connect qualifying financially and socially disadvantaged hearing-impaired people to the world of sound and meaningful life with an Advanced Bionics Cochlear implant.

For every car sold, scheckterspeed donates to the foundation.
Car dealerships require stock on an ongoing basis, which guarantees a high level of interest in your vehicle. Your car will be displayed to a large group of interested pre-approved dealerships who will compete to offer the highest bid through our platform.
It is swift, simple and seamless:
scheckterspeed mitigates the risk linked to out-of-hand sales – from sharing your personal details across platforms, to the verification of dealerships (buyers). We pre-approve and verify all participating dealerships.
No dealership (buyer) will have access to your personal contact details until the bid is won.
We have developed the scheckterspeed platform with your information privacy and security as our top priority. All data uploaded to the scheckterspeed platform is held on a highly secure server in an encrypted database.
We adhere strictly to a non-disclosure policy as well as the POPI Act. Your personal and contact information will only be shared with the successful bidder (a pre-approved dealership) once you accept the offer. Your acceptance of the offer grants us permission to disclose your information to the specific dealership. The dealership will then contact you to conclude the safe and secure sales process.
We highly recommend that you blur out your vehicle registration number plates and/or any other personal information that might be visible before uploading your pictures, to increase your privacy and safety.
