Bengaluru, India, December 30, 2014: Just moved into the city and looking to buy a pre-owned sedan at a fair price? Or are you looking to buy a pre-owned bike of your choice certified by a reliable partner? Here’s some good news for you—Junglee.com, India’s #1 product search and comparison site, today announced the launch of its Pre-owned Vehicles Store. Customers can now find used vehicles on Junglee.com from over 160 cities across India.
Junglee enables customers to search over 25,000 pre-owned vehicle listings across 160 cities from car dealers like Mahindra First Choice, classifieds sites like Carwale, Zigwheels, Gaadi.com, Drivespark and hundreds of offline dealers and individuals, all in one place. Normally shopping for vehicles is inherently limited to a city. To make this contextual and convenient for customers, Junglee.com will list pre-owned vehicles within their preferred city only. In addition, customers can now post a free ad for selling their vehicles on Junglee.com. To post an ad, all that they need to do is click pictures of the vehicle, fill in the details, set a price and be ready to receive calls from prospective buyers in their city.
Making the announcement, Mahendra Nerurkar, General Manager of Junglee.com said, “Junglee’s vision is to help customers find the best place to buy anything. Pre-owned vehicles is a large and fragmented category where Junglee is attempting to simplify the shopping experience for customers by organizing high quality vehicles listings across multiple sources in one place, and offering optional value-added services such as inspection and buying & selling guides. For classifieds sites, dealers and individuals, Junglee offers a cost-effective medium to attract high intent car shoppers. We are thrilled by the commitment shown by our partners in helping us organize this important segment”.
“We are delighted to partner with Junglee.com. We found strong synergies with their focus on maintaining a very high standard when it comes to quality of product information. Now, each and every person who lists their car for sale on www.carwale.com will also have the option of displaying their car on Junglee.com Pre-owned Vehicle Store for free. This also applies to all the dealers who partner with CarWale”, said Dhruv Chopra, CMO of CarWale.com.
Verified sellers and high-quality product listings
Junglee.com ensures that every vehicle listed on its website is accompanied by a photograph and detailed product information like kilometers driven, year of first registration and number of past owners. This helps customers get a true picture of the actual condition of the vehicle. Junglee.com verifies the identity of every individual posting an ad through a One Time Password via SMS.
To ensure that customers only see fresh and relevant ads, all stale ads are removed after 30 days unless the seller confirms that the vehicle is still available for sale.
Vehicle inspection services and buying guides
Junglee.com has partnered with Mahindra First Choice to provide vehicle inspection services at affordable prices across all cities. Autoinspekt, a Mahindra First Choice Company, will inspect and publish a comprehensive inspection report for any vehicle on demand by customers on Junglee.com. This will provide both buyers and sellers an easy and reliable way to understand the condition of the vehicle and its fair market value.
“We are excited to partner with Junglee.com. It ties in with our endeavor to organize the used car industry in India. Our vehicle inspection services (Autoinspekt) are now the de facto standard in the industry. Over the last 10 years, we have built the largest multi-brand network of used car dealers and leveraged this experience to bring new products and services to enable buyers and sellers to transact efficiently through data and technology. I look forward to expanding our partnership with Junglee.com to grow our mutual businesses”, said Dr. Nagendra Palle, CEO of Mahindra First Choice Wheels.
