Jiji Cars (formerly Cars45), one of the most popular car marketplaces in Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria for buying and selling verified cars, has scooped the Motor Vehicle Dealer of the Year, 2022, just a year and a half, after its acquisition by Jiji, the largest online marketplace in Africa.
The award was presented to Jiji Cars during the Global Top Digitally Fit Awards, which was held at the Movenpick Hotel and Residences, Nairobi. The Global Top Digitally Fit Awards recognizes and rewards companies creating an online impact.
Since its acquisition by Jiji, Jiji Cars (formerly Cars45) has created a new advanced experience for its users. They have continuously offered a new car buying and selling experience, where they can inspect cars on behalf of buyers, making them the safest marketplace to buy cars in Africa. This unparalleled experience has helped their market reach exponentially grow since car sellers and buyers benefit from them by selling and buying their cars faster now than ever before.
They beat all other motor vehicle dealers in Kenya, such as BMW Kenya, Hyundai, Simba Colt Motors, Subaru (K) Ltd, Toyota Kenya, CMC Motors, Nissan Kenya, Jaguar Kenya, Mahindra, Car Soko, DT Dobie, Mobius Motors, Yamaha Motors, Foton East Africa, Tata Africa Holdings, etc., to take home the award for the Best Motor Vehicle Dealers in Kenya.
Kenya Auto Bazaar Association (KABA) reported an increase in the demand for third-generation cars (second-hand cars that have been used locally) amid reduced global production of units and soaring prices. However, buyers are also very concerned about the longevity of vehicles once bought. This is why Jiji Cars offers users detailed inspection reports by 200+ parameters, documentation checks, inspections, and concierge service. They also assist buyers with getting car loans, amongst other benefits.
After receiving the award, Ann Bindi, Head of Operations at Jiji Cars, said, “We are thrilled to receive this award. This shows how we have consistently built a trusted buying and selling experience in autos. We want to thank all our clients who have placed their trust in our marketplace and recognized our efforts to ensure they can safely buy and sell their cars through us.”
