Carousell Holds First Ever “Car-O-Sale” in the Philippines

Carousell, one of the world’s largest and fastest growing online classifieds, launches its first-ever used car sale in the Philippines titled “Car-o-Sale”. Through this campaign, it aims to help jump start businesses of its automotive merchants, many of which are long time listers since its early days as OLX. In addition, it is set to provide potential car buyers with a wide selection of quality used vehicles from its list of trusted sellers, paired with great deals.

Public transportation has been limited due to tight restrictions in place and there has been a surge in online searches and inquiries due to a need to find alternative ways of commuting. Carousell helps address this demand by hosting an online car event that makes transactions convenient, ensures trustworthiness in dealings, and helps potential buyers connect to reliable auto dealers in the country.

Running from August 3-30, 2020, Car-o-Sale offers a wide variety of models with more than 1,000 vehicle listings to choose from for hopeful Filipinos looking to purchase a car for their personal mobility. Carousell’s biggest and trusted sellers, such as All Cars, Car Empire, and Batman Motors will be participating, offering discounts as high as P150,000. Extensive listings include cars such as the Ford Ranger, Toyota Fortuner, Honda City, Toyota Hiace Grandia, Honda CR-V, and Toyota Alphard.

“Now more than ever, used cars can be of huge benefit for Filipinos as the need for a safe, convenient and affordable way to commute has been highlighted by the difficult mobility situation brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic”, shared Karl Magsuci, Head of Autos, Carousell Philippines. “In addition, many entrepreneurs who are in the used car business need the support to restart their operations after the ECQ. Through our online classifieds platform, we hope to be able to provide them with an effective and cost-efficient way to reach out to the car-buying market and promote their respective offerings. Carousell has seen a 64% increase in demand in the automotive category, as many people are looking for affordable means of transportation for their personal mobility, especially during these difficult times. Thus, it is a great deal to us to be able to give the Filipino people the platform for them to have easier access to a wide selection of vehicles and even better deals to choose from.”
