Automotive Leaders Join Forces to Make Online Shopping Better
MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, July 29, 2015 /CNW/ -- Carpages.ca has partnered with Carfax Canada to give people a better experience when shopping online for used cars. Now, car buyers get complimentary Carfax® Vehicle History Reports™ from subscribing dealers included with their inventory on Carpages.ca. Making trusted information from Carfax readily available on the only car shopping website in Canada endorsed by the Used Car Dealer Association (UCDA) helps consumers buy with even greater confidence.
"We are excited to work with Carfax Canada and believe that the integration of Carfax Reports helps enhance the shopping experience on Carpages.ca," said Ben Mirecki, president of Carpages.ca. "It's another big step forward in our commitment to providing a safer car shopping destination for Canadian consumers. This partnership speaks volumes about our equal desire to build buyer trust through transparency in the universe of online car shopping."
Online shoppers have instant access to Carfax Reports, the best known reports in Canada, at no-cost from subscribing dealers. With a single click, buyers see valuable information about accidents and damage claim amounts reported to Carfax, plus information you can't get anywhere else like service records, damage repair details, open recalls and more. Direct links to the Carfax Reports are included on both the search results and vehicle details pages of Carpages.ca.
"Carpages.ca is the place many Canadians go to shop for used cars online," said Jon Arnett, general manager of Carfax Canada. "We're impressed by their continued efforts to make it easier for used car shoppers to buy online. Consumers and dealers agree that including a Carfax Report with vehicles for sale is just as important as price and photos, and helps foster quicker, more informed buying decisions."
