Proton has entered a strategic partnership with CARSOME to offer customers a seamless solution to trade-in their old cars. Besides CARSOME, two other online bidding companies are also on-board with Proton.
Proton says the partnership with CARSOME will provide customers with a range of benefits, including enhanced convenience, trustworthiness, competitive trade-in values, transparency in pricing, secure payment and ownership transfer, daily auctions, faster disposal, and comprehensive inspections.
“Over the last five years, Proton has increased the number of models offered and updated our current line-up, while improving product quality and introducing connectivity technology in our models. Consumer confidence has increased due to these efforts as well as improvements made at the dealership level. Working with EBCs (e-bidding companies) will help to enhance these efforts as well as the trade-in value of our models while helping to facilitate customers who intend to upgrade their vehicles,” said Proton’s Deputy CEO Roslan Abdullah.
CARSOME will assist Proton customers in putting up their vehicles for auction through a user-friendly online platform. This reduces the need for customers to visit multiple dealerships or negotiate with potential buyers, saving them valuable time and effort.
Through a fair and open auction system, customers will be able to receive competitive trade-in values for their vehicles. The transparent pricing model ensures that customers can make informed decisions during the trade-in process while the payment and ownership transfer processes are expedited to minimize any potential delays or complications, providing customers with a seamless experience.
“Proton is the first OEM to form strategic partnerships with EBCs and we think this will help pave the way for faster and more transparent trade-in transactions for customers and in turn help drive new car sales. Additionally, by using open platforms, the resale value for our models can be established helping to build consumer confidence and giving a more accurate ownership picture to buyers,” said Roslan Abdullah.
