Tuesday January 15, 2019 (Smartcompany.com.au) – When it comes to buying a used car in Australia, other than parking it on the main road with a handwritten sign in the window, shoppers aren’t exactly flush with choice.
Most will either head down to the local dealership, or take to the internet, browsing through classifieds on Gumtree or eBay or, more likely, heading to somewhere such as Carsales.
But with the rise of a new Aussie startup out of Sydney, locals could soon be swiping left and right on cars they like through a Tinder-esque matchmaking app called CarSwap.
Launched in late-2016 by a team of four founders and self-professed ‘car people’, CarSwap was born out of the team’s frustration with the car buying-and-selling process, and the monopoly sites such as Carsales hold on the secondary automotive market in Australia.
Speaking to StartupSmart, CarSwap co-founder Cyrus Rafizadeh says one of the core aspects of the platform is enabling users to not only buy and sell cars, but swap them too.
CarSwap is available for download via both Apple and Google Play app stores.
