Carmudi improves customer convenience with new android app


Carmudi, Nigeria’s number 1 car-site is bringing unrivalled convenience to its users with the unveiling of Carmudi android application. This milestone comes barely two months after Carmudi celebrated its one year anniversary and website re-launch. With four easy steps you can have your car up for sale in less than 2 minutes with the use of the Carmudi Android app. All you need to do is download the app, go to the menu and click on the link that says ‘sell your vehicle’. That allows users to upload their car details, images and contact information. And voila, your car is ready for sale. You can reach millions of interested buyers in just a few seconds without going through the hassle of putting adverts in the papers or spreading the word among friends. But interestingly, this innovative service is available in 10 languages of the world (English, Arabic, Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, French, Spanish, Sinhala, Tamil, and Vietnamese). It is also absolutely free, according to the online company. Christian Keller, managing director Carmudi Nigeria, said, “With the app, selling your car is no more waiting for months to get the right kind of buyer and no more visiting a plethora of car dealers to get your resale’s worth.

“With more than xx million Nigerians using eligible Smartphones, everyone will be able to use Carmudi through their mobile phones”, he added. The Android App has been designed in a way that it works seamlessly even in countries where the internet speed is relatively slow. “Our intent is to bring the car selling experience to a whole new level in emerging markets, by providing an extremely smooth and easy-to-use platform,” said Nalla Kurananithy, chief product officer at Carmudi. Sellers get prompt notifications about potential customers straight to their Android devices. This way, you can get in touch with buyers immediately and make an active sale. If you are undecided about pricing your used car, you can choose from various options between Drive Away, On the Road and Negotiable prices. This will allow you to meet potential buyers before committing to a final price. The high security standard and transparency level that dealers/individual sellers tend to enjoy through Carmudi allows them to secure a trusted stamp among buyers. The professional photos, the updated listings, the detailed descriptions, reports and rankings of all the listed vehicles make the selling/buying experience absolutely stress-free.

Also, the cars listed through the Android app and the website is shared with Carmudi’s social media followers (approx.1 million) to make the selling process even more effective. So no more waiting for months to get the right kind of buyer or visiting a plethora of car dealers to get your resale’s worth. If you are looking to sell your car online, simply download the app from the Google Play – it is fast and hassle-free. Carmudi was founded in 2013 and is currently available in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Congo, Ghana, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Mexico, Myanmar, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, United Arab Emirates and Vietnam.
