CARS24 launches in Australia with ambition to disrupt Australia's $55 billion used car market

The future of used car buying has arrived in Australia with the launch of CARS24, a tech-driven unicorn on a mission to disrupt Australia’s $55 billion used car category. 

With ambitions of becoming the country’s most convenient and trustworthy way to buy a used car, CARS24 offers Australians the first 100% online used car buying experience – all from the comfort of their own home, purchase in under five minutes with their new car delivered direct to their door. 

Unlike existing online marketplaces that facilitate buying through a dealer or between private sellers, CARS24 owns every car it sells, ensuring quality control from sourcing through to delivery and warranty. 

CARS24’s industry-leading model offers a 300 point inspection to ensure car quality. One of the most comprehensive on the market, it involves highly skilled technicians checking and testing every aspect of the car – and refurbishing, reconditioning and removing major imperfections before it’s delivered to the customer. Furthermore, CARS24 offers seven-day returns with 100 per cent money-back guarantee. Every car also comes with a six-month unlimited warranty and free at-home delivery – making it as easy and convenient as any other online purchase. 

Led by CEO Olga Rudenko, formerly Head of Consumer Strategy and Operations at UberEats ANZ, CARS24 launches in Australia with a local headcount of over 130 and an inventory of over 1,000 vehicles. The average age of a CARS24 car is five years, with an odometer of 70,000km and price of AUD$25,000. 

CARS24 Australia CEO Olga Rudenko, comments: 

“We buy everything online these days. Groceries, clothes, appliances. Why? It’s super easy - buy when it’s right for you, no need to leave home. You trust that you’ll have a good experience, with customer reviews and return policies if things don’t work out. 

“When it comes to buying a car, there is still so much involved. You can certainly find cars online - but then you have to inspect them and hope that you won’t be duped. Either on price from dealerships or on their condition through private sellers, which can make the entire process very stressful! 

“Being able to order a car in under five minutes with all the financing taken care of and ability to return within seven days at no cost is an absolute no brainer. We’re here to bring this new way of buying used cars to Australia.” 

CARS24 has established physical operations in Victoria, Queensland and New South Wales and has plans to operate in eastern and southern states by the end of 2021. Visit CARS24.COM for more information.
