Can you buy a quality used car without looking under the bonnet?
New online car distributor auction.co.za allows would-be buyers to do just that.
The platform offers an alternative digital marketplace for South Africans who want to buy or sell vehicles.
He says DealersOnline currently sells about 5 500 cars a month.
He explains that experienced inspectors will drive and assess all of the vehicles that go onto the platform.
The would-be buyers then have access to the full inspector's report.
A list of identifiable defects is included so that buyers can make an informed decision, De Jager advises.
The auctions take place every day and have cut-off times for the live competitive bidding.
The bidding process is exactly the same as it would be on a live auction. The only difference is that it's online, it's anonymous and everybody can participate.— Renaldo de Jager, co-founder at Auction.co.za
Auctions run every single day of the week.— Renaldo de Jager, co-founder at Auction.co.za
He explains the business model of the online platform and the verification measures in place.
