Carmudi Philippines, the online vehicle marketplace, has recently signed a partnership with Rapide Auto Service Experts to offer automotive inspections and certification for vehicles bought and sold on their online portal.
Under the memorandum of agreement signed by Carmudi Philippines Managing Director Abhishek Mohan and Rapide Auto Service Experts General Manager Byron Lat, buyers and sellers will have the option to have their vehicles inspected by Rapide professionals for a nominal fee. After inspection, Carmudi can then issue a certification describing the actual state of the vehicle, enabling buyers to make informed choices.
“We are very pleased to announce our partnership with Rapide to provide certification services for used vehicles listed on our online platform. This is in line with our mission to provide the safest environment online, for buying and selling in the automotive space. We see certification as a crucial step towards bridging the information and trust gap between buyers and sellers that use online automotive classifieds to transact business,” said Carmudi Philippines Managing Director Abhishek Mohan
“We are confident that this partnership, in the face of scams that exist elsewhere on the Internet, will redefine the online classifieds space and make it far more trustworthy,” he added.
For his part, Rapide Auto Service Experts General Manager Byron Lat said “The program would bring honesty and trust to all parties concerned with every transaction in Carmudi, especially with the system that our companies have devised.”
“The vehicle sellers and the buying public will definitely benefit from this partnership between Rapide and Carmudi as it brings out transparency and trust in every transaction that they make,” he added.
