The typical used car salesman isn't perceived well by most customers. A new website startup hopes to change the way consumers buy and sell their used cars and make the entire process simpler and more honest.
The free-to-use for buyers platform, auction.co.za, will launch on Monday, the 3rd of September. It plans to offer an alternative digital marketplace for South African consumers buying and selling vehicles.
