Neostar is a story about how to solve the problem of trust and change the traditional relationship between used car dealers, mechanics, and customers, without either of the parties involved getting the short end of the stick — at least not under our watch.
Buying and selling cars has become much more common today due to shifts in life circumstances and various other reasons, so we no longer buy a car only once or twice in a lifetime. Market research in Croatia showed that 81% of people had a problem selling or purchasing a used car. 68% believe people don’t tell the truth when they are selling a used car. 24% are afraid that they will be deceived, and only 49% bought a used car with a warranty.
Here at Neostar, there is a genuine love and passion for cars, which brought us together in the first place. We connect people who want to sell, buy or maintain a car without complications and risks. We help sellers establish a fair price for their vehicles and offer an elegant solution for bidding. We will inspect every car, take 360° photos, and advertise it on our platform - for free. In addition, we will arrange all the paperwork for future buyers and provide a 6 to 12month warranty. But that is just the beginning. We want to help users during the whole lifecycle of their car, providing access to fully transparent car maintenance with competing workshops and every service cost known in advance.
What are we bringing to the used car market?
Neostar is an innovative digital platform that aspires to solve the problem of trust between sellers, mechanics, and buyers of used cars. Don’t be fooled by our colorful design - we are very serious about preventing fraud and starting a revolution in this murky industry by using the most efficient weapon today - technology.

He was involved in the development and setting of the Neostar platform from the beginning. He was oriented on user experience and operational excellence with an agile method approach to work in the project. He is a school example of a COO that is focused, thorough, open to change, and loves enthusiasm. Before joining the platform, he spent the last 8 years in an executive position in a car dealership company. In his childhood, he spent most of his time playing with cars. For that reason, it is safe to say that he dedicated his life to cars. Some people say that they heard him recite some poems as well. He is a romantic soul, but for now, that is still only a legend. His dream car is a 1962 Ferrari 250 GTO.

Born in 1972, when the best specimens of merlot and cabernet sauvignon were picked from the left and right banks of the River Garonne, ie, in a "good year", which, as with Bordeaux blends, will have an impact on the aging of our Goran. As a typical representative of the maxim "la dolce vitta" who gladly shares his kindness and smiling energy with others, he was the perfect choice for our small team. He is in charge of establishing and managing customer support, which we realized in Zendesc. Given that the biggest problem with the conditions for his new job was the number of days off, it is no wonder that his most desirable car is the one in which Ferris Bueller spends his Day off, Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder from 1961. In it's trunk, he would certainly store a carton of Pinot Noir from the Napa Valley.
