Amsterdam, October 5, 2020 – CarNext.com, Europe’s leading online marketplace for high-quality used cars, has launched a new range of online e-commerce services, including virtual car appointments, home delivery and ‘Click & Collect’. The new solutions are designed to meet the increasing demand for online car buying in the era of Covid-19.
Jan Wouter Kleinjan, Chief Product & Marketing Officer, said:
“Online car buying has really taken off due to Covid-19 restrictions. At the same time, we’ve seen that people still want a degree of extra support when completing such a large purchase. To bridge the experience gap, we’ve introduced a range of customer e-commerce services – including virtual appointments and inspections, and home delivery – to give our customers the confidence they need to complete their car purchase, fully online. We believe this hybrid approach is what customers are looking for in the ‘new normal’. We are seeing increasing demand for our new services, having conducted thousands of video chats with customers so far.”
Via a CarNext.com virtual video car appointment, a customer can view all aspects of a car, ask questions and get advice from a trained car specialist in real time. A video appointment usually takes between 15 – 30 minutes and is fully tailored to a customer’s needs and requirements.
Home delivery or ‘Click & Collect’
Following an online car purchase, a customer can book a home delivery appointment, during which their car will be delivered to their doorstep at a time of their choice. Alternatively CarNext.com offers a ‘Click & Collect’ service, via which the car can be collected by a customer from one of our Delivery Stores, all of which are located in and around major transport hubs.
