As 2018 is coming to a close, Carsbazr, a vehicle retail service in Nigeria that sells verified used cars backed by Cars45, recently had their 26th live vehicle auction at Lagos at Circle Mall, Lekki. The auction sold over twenty cars at very low prices.
“Our goal is to ensure that every week we are creating and bringing value to the society as we provide a channel where verified locally used cars are sold at great market prices. If you are looking to get a great deal, Carsbazr is the place to be. Through our live auctions, we are creating an environment where everyone in Nigeria can comfortably own a car.” John Egwu, Head of Operations, Carsbazr.
Among the cars auctioned this past weekend was Nigeria’s renowned R&B star Banky W’s 2008 Range Rover Sport. This car is a key part of Nigeria’s pop culture history as it has appeared in more music videos and movies than any other vehicle in Nigeria. The bid for the Range Rover started at N750,000 and it was a keenly contested fight till it successfully closed at N2.3 Million naira. Aimed at raising awareness for two charities of his choice, all proceeds from the car will go to The Pink Oak Cancer Trust and the Vocational School for the Blind.
Bidders responded with so much enthusiasm and excitement and every car put into the auction was sold but not without a tough bidding fight with some cars generating as much as 20 contesting bids. The atmosphere was quite fun and competitive!
After winning this Honda Crosstour at 2.4 million, the crowd went wild and registration numbers increased. Observers couldn’t believe that right in front of them, the third high profile car had been won at such an affordable price. The Cars45 & Carsbazr partnership aims at transforming the Nigerian automobile industry. The objective of the Live Auction is to ensure that every Nigerian with the hopes of buying a car can get one at an affordable price along with a detailed inspection and background check.
