HelloCars launches to disrupt used-car sales in Australia

Sydney September 8, 2016: Australians can now enjoy a safer, more convenient and better-value way to buy and sell used cars with the launch today of new start-up, HelloCars.

Unlike the existing private sale marketplaces, HelloCars takes all the uncertainty and wasted time out of buying and selling used cars, is guaranteed to be cheaper than a dealer and leaves more money in your pocket, whether you’re buying or selling.

The innovative Australian start-up is founded by entrepreneurial brothers Paul and Michael Higgins who have many years’ experience in the motoring and finance industries behind them.
“HelloCars does all the hard work for you,” Paul Higgins says. “Only vehicles that have been certified by HelloCars, are under six years old and have fewer than 100,000kms will be sold on our website so you can be assured of the quality of the car you’re buying.

“Our research indicates that the majority of people (74.6%)* believe private sellers are dishonest when selling their cars. They don’t need to worry with HelloCars, because our independent vehicle reports are available for anyone to view,” he said.

Buyers are also offered a seven-day money-back guarantee if they’re not happy with the vehicle they’ve purchased.

For sellers, HelloCars will sell your car for an upfront price and if it isn’t sold within 30 days HelloCars will buy the car for the agreed price – which is guaranteed to be better than any dealer.

Car sales people are consistently ranked lowest on the list of trusted professions** and Paul and Michael knew they could make a positive change in the industry.

“We know there is a much better way to do used car sales – there is a reason used-car sales people have a bad reputation, because customers often have a poor experience and feel very vulnerable when negotiating with a dealer,” Michael Higgins said.

“A car is a big investment and customers should feel good about the transaction, not that they’ve been taken for a ride. We don’t have sales people or showrooms, so we can offer the best prices guaranteed,” he said.

Buyers and sellers can both have the confidence of only ever having to deal with HelloCars in the transaction and don’t have to spend their spare time dealing with strangers and time wasters.

Launching first in Sydney, HelloCars will launch in other capital cities in the months to come.
