MyMotor changes the classifieds gamePOSTED BY Vishal Bhaskaran ON 18 June 2015
Online automotive classifieds are every petrolhead’s favourite destination to kill time, occasionally even at work. For those who seriously go to these websites to buy or sell cars however, My E.G. might have just turned the whole industry on its head with its new portal, www.mymotor.com, or MyMotor for short.
MyMotor is touted as a one-stop centre for individual owners, used car dealer and even new car dealers and salespeople, separating itself from the myriad of car listings websites by offering everything from inspection to vehicle financing and registration.
Dr Philip Ng, Managing Director for MyMotor said, “MyMotor is an absolute hassle-free online platform that brings both the buyer and sellers of vehicles together. It serves as a sales and purchasing assistant, easing the buying and selling transactions for customers from start to finish.
“We believe that MyMotor will radically change the way car sellers and buyers interact. We will come to you, assess your vehicle, and help you sell your car at the best price. If you’re buying, you will get to choose real cars, which are verified by our team of motoring experts, at real prices from their real owners.”
Ng believes the market will receive MyMotor well, if the industry is anything to go by its a surprise that it has taken so long for something like to be introduced; in Malaysia the number of used cars that change hands yearly is more than 50 percent higher than new car sales.
“With the ever changing consumer buying behaviours, we identified an opportunity in the online marketplace for a one-stop centre where users can buy or sell a car, and have all transactions including vehicle financing, road tax, insurance and car ownership transfer done for you.”
“Backed by Malaysia’s leading e-Government Services provider My E.G. Services Berhad, we have a solid track record and strong partnerships in place to ensure value-added services that no other online car websites can offer,” he added.
For the holy month of Ramadhan, the first 50 cars successfully purchased through MyMotor will receive RM3,000 cashback subject to approved vehicle financing valid until the end of the fasting month or until 50 cars have been sold.
Additionally, car sellers will be provided with a free listing service for the current launch period.
