CARS24 launches in Australia to disrupt $55 billion used car market

The future of used car buying has arrived in Australia with the launch of CARS24, a tech-driven unicorn on a mission to disrupt Australia’s $55 billion used car category.

With ambitions of becoming the country’s most convenient and trustworthy way to buy a used car, CARS24 offers Australians the first 100% online used car buying experience.

From the comfort of your home, purchase and the car is delivered direct to your door.

CARS24 set to disrupt the Australian automobile market

Unlike marketplaces that offer buying through a dealer or between private sellers, CARS24 owns every car it sells, ensuring quality control from sourcing to delivery and warranty.

CARS24’s industry-leading model offers a 300 point inspection to ensure car quality.

It involves highly skilled technicians checking and testing every aspect of the car and refurbishing, reconditioning and removing imperfections before it’s delivered to the customer.

CARS24 offers seven day returns with 100% money-back guarantee.

Every car also comes with a six month unlimited warranty and free home delivery making it as easy and convenient as any other online purchase for customers of CARS24.

Led by CEO Olga Rudenko, formerly Head of Consumer Strategy and Operations at UberEats ANZ, CARS24 launches in Australia with an inventory of over a thousand vehicles.

CARS24 cars average 5 years with an odometer of 70,000km and price of AUD$25,000.

Commentary on CARS24 entering the Australian market

CARS24 Australia CEO Olga Rudenko said, “We buy everything online these days. Groceries, clothes, appliances. Why? It’s super easy – buy when it’s right for you, no need to leave home.”

“Trust that you’ll have a good experience, with customer reviews and return policies.”

“When it comes to buying a car, there is still so much involved. You can certainly find cars online – but then you have to inspect them and hope that you won’t be duped.”

“Prices from dealerships and conditions through private sellers can be very stressful!”

“Being able to order a car in under five minutes with all the financing taken care of and ability to return within seven days at no cost is an absolute no brainer.”

“We’re here to bring this new way of buying used cars to Australia.”

CARS24 has established physical operations in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales and has plans to operate in eastern and southern states by the end of 2021.
