The car dealership business in Kenya is chaotic, to say the least. Buying, selling or swapping a car grew into something so risky that many owners have opted to keep off in fear of losing their vehicles.
That, however, is changing thanks to Africa’s leading tech-enabled automotive trading platform Cars45. Their tech-enabled approach provides users with a platform that is built on trust, transparency and convenience.
Using its technology-enabled platform, consumers in Kenya can sell their cars directly through Cars45.co.ke and get paid in just 45 minutes.
Sellers have access to standardised pricing and a transparent marketplace, with 100 percent visibility into price offers, and buyers get access to the largest selection of verified cars.
Cars45 also provides vehicle financing, background checks, vehicle history, insurance, after-sales support, servicing and other ancillary services that consumers will need in their automotive lifecycle.
