In my previous post, I mentioned about the newly launched chat feature of Quikr across its desktop site, mobile site & mobile application. In this post, I will share my experience, how chat features in Quikr can enable us with hassle free transaction on its classified portal. Recently my manager had asked me how he can upgrade his old car with a better one. I told him " Why fikar, Chat Quikr". He asked me about how he can sell his old car without getting tortured by fake buyers. He told me about his experience, how he become victim of some fake buyers when he was trying to sell his old smartphone on one of the classified portal, he used to get 20 calls daily and almost 80% of them were fake buyers. They used to call him randomly asking about its features, quality and price and he really got frustrated because of it. He was really annoyed with experience with that classified portal.
Now coming to the agenda of this post how Quikr NXT features helped him to sell his old car.
He was using an old model of Maruti 800 & which was outdated and of no use, except consuming space in his garage. I had already told him the features of Quikr CHAT and how he can easily create an free alert for identifying potential buyer.
Steps to Create a free Ad:
Choose: Car & Bikes ---- Cars ---- I want to Buy & Sell
Select Price ---- Brand Name ---- Model
I told him to choose "Buy & Sell " option so that he can first sell his old model car and get a better by adding some extra money from pocket. within 2 days of placing the ad, he got almost more than 20 request on Quikr chat on his mobile app. We decided to connect with few of them, so we asked one buyer from n nearby location about his budget, he said they are genuine reseller of cars & can give an exchange offer on his existing Maruti car against a latest model of Alto car .
We asked him to share some latest photos of the car, he immediately send us some photos and he said if we need he can share the video of car interiors as well. We were so happy to hear this & he shared the complete video of the car, and you will not believe guys,the car was in awesome condition, without any scratches and new set of seats as part of interior. We were worried about how much he will offer as an exchange value for the old car. After chatting for one-day in negotiation, he agreed to pay 70 K in lieu of old car. The new car he was offering on 1.4 lakh, So after deducting the exchange value of the old car we had closed the deal on 70 K. Next day he met us at agreed location, where we took the test drive of the car & it was perfect. So within 3-4 days of time with the help of Quikr NXT, we sold an old car at an unbelievable price and purchased a new model with better condition and features in just extra 70 thousand rupees.
It's really a revolution in India's online classified market as it's enable the user's to communicate with each other at their convenience and get more details about product features or services without making a single phone call.
