What is it about dealing with car dealerships that fills people with dread?
For starters, there’s the sales pitches, price negotiations, hidden fees, pushy salespeople, mountains of lengthy paperwork, and hours of waiting around in-between all of these steps… are you shaking with terror yet?
A 2021 research study by Google Think Auto found that online vehicle sales in Canada have grown 600% since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Even if you had the option to, who wants to go to a dealership anymore?
Luckily, you can avoid car dealerships altogether with Carooga!
As Western Canada’s first fully online car buying website, Carooga has removed the frustrations and barriers that people face in the vehicle buying process.
Serving the Metro Vancouver region and B.C., the fully-automated tech startup is disrupting the way we purchase cars by switching gears to a seamless online shopping experience.
We already get most things delivered to our door, from our weekly groceries to the sheepskin rug you’ve been eyeing on Wayfair, so why not buy a car online too? With Carooga, you can buy a vehicle anywhere and anytime you like from the convenience of your laptop or cell phone.
You may have heard of other brands pitching their online car buying platform, and many regular dealerships are positioning themselves this way as well — but don’t be fooled. Anyone can put a ‘buy online’ sign on their window and still sell you on the old way of buying a car.
Where Carooga differs is in their technology, which is the first of its kind in Canada. With a simple, two-minute pre-qualifying form — done completely online —you can get approved for financing. That’s it, there’s none of the waiting around for the car dealer to speak to their manager.
With that instant approval in hand, you can shop Carooga’s full inventory online, and see the rates and financing terms personalized for you. There are never any pushy salespeople involved, so you can browse and buy at your own time and convenience, in another way of giving the control back to the customer.
Every vehicle you see on Carooga has been meticulously inspected and is guaranteed never to have been in an accident, so you know you are getting a quality ride. And with 360-degree interactive videos of their inventory you can spin them around and even zoom right in to get a better look at that paint job. This feature gives prospective buyers the opportunity to virtually sit in the driver’s seat for a test drive before they make the purchase.
After buying a car through the website, Carooga will arrange for the vehicle to be delivered right to your driveway at no extra cost.
If you just can’t get over buying a car without the test drive, they’ve got that covered too. From the day you get your car, your 7-day, risk-free test drive of your new vehicle begins. If you’re not happy with your car at the end of the test drive period, you have the option of exchanging it for another vehicle or getting your money back — no questions asked.
So what are you waiting for? Give virtual car shopping a try and you’ll be out on the road and taking your brand new whip for a spin in no time!
