Which car buying website will get you the best deal?
CarBuying.com has made headlines around the world with the announcement that it is offering to buy your car from you for a lower price.
CarBuying has a massive following of consumers who are keen to buy a car on its website, and now the online car buying service is aiming to bring that same same experience to car buying in India.
CarBuys has set up an app in the App Store called CarBuies Car Swap, which can be used to buy any vehicle from anywhere in India, and it has partnered with the National Auto Insurance Corporation (NACI) to offer a car swap for less than Rs 2 lakh.
In the app, you will be able to enter your details and get a quote from a knowledgeable representative, who will then come to you to swap the car.
The process is simple and painless.
You can swap any car, and when your vehicle is ready, you can call the NACI office for a swap.
The NACN has been the only insurance company in India that offers a car swapping service.
NACIPA chief executive Dr M L D’Ocampo told The Hindu that the app has already been approved for use by over 100,000 auto insurance companies in India and has been in operation for more than a year.
The app is free to download from the App store.
The app has received support from the NacI for a year, but the NAAI has not given its backing to the app since it has not been made available in India yet.
The NAAi is yet to comment on the news.
As per NAAIPA’s policy, any insurance company is allowed to provide its insurance for up to Rs 10 lakh for a single vehicle, but it is yet unclear if this will apply to NAAIC, which is yet another car insurance provider that is part of the NIA.
The other insurers have not commented on the matter either.
If you have been looking for a car in India for a while, then you might want to check out a similar app called Auto Insurers’ Car Swap app.
Both the apps are free to use.
If you are looking to buy the car from a third party, you need to register with the NCCI.
