In an industry-first, Carousell Singapore, the popular classifieds and recommerce marketplace, is joining forces with car subscription company Carzuno to introduce a comprehensive Carousell Car Subscription service in Singapore. This new fully-digital service promises to bring convenience and transparency to the local auto market.
The Carousell Car Subscription will feature an all-encompassing pricing structure, bundling in the costs of insurance, servicing, and roadside assistance. Furthermore, customers will enjoy free doorstep delivery and return, taking the hassle out of traditional car ownership.
Sanjay Shivkumar, Carousell Singapore’s Head of Autos, highlighted that the platform is renowned for buying and selling secondhand cars and also boasts the largest platform for car rentals in Singapore. Now, with this unique subscription service, they’re looking to cater to a growing demand for flexible, affordable access to vehicles, particularly among eco-conscious drivers seeking to use electric vehicles without the significant upfront costs.
The innovative car subscription service allows users to choose their preferred subscription duration, ranging from one to 24 months. This flexibility means users can tailor the service to suit their budgets and individual needs.
This development follows the successful launch of the Carousell Certified programme in April 2023. The program assures customers of the quality and authenticity of listed items such as cars and luxury goods.
Kim Jonsson, Carzuno CEO, expressed excitement about combining Carousell’s reach, with one in three Singaporeans as monthly active users, with their diverse fleet of 50 car models. He assured that the application process would be swift and straightforward and that the cars would be regularly serviced and maintained.
To celebrate the new launch, Carousell and Carzuno are offering an exclusive $100 discount on all Carousell Car Subscriptions until the end of the year.
The announcement follows Carousell Singapore’s recent partnership with global logistics service provider J&T Express. This partnership is aimed at providing convenient delivery services for both sellers and buyers, further enhancing user experience on the platform.
