Nigeria’s leading car marketplace, Cheki.com.ng, today announced crossing 135,000 listings since inception and over 1 million leads on cars across Nigeria.
The platform which operates a zero commission marketplace provides an opportunity for Nigerians to gain access to amazing and competitive prices from both Nigeria’s leading dealers, cars from dealerships around the world and private sellers, thereby resulting in over 90,000 cars sold on its platform since inception in 2011.
Mrs. Tomi Hodonu, the General Manager of Cheki.com.ng stated that “We are truly happy at the amazing numbers we have been able to record in such a short time. We started with a small passionate team with a vision of building Nigeria’s number one car website, and today we have grown our numbers to over 120 in Nigeria and have become the standard for Nigerians looking to buy cars online.
These milestones come at a time when we are expanding our operations to cover some other major Nigerian cities better, and we believe this is only the beginning of what we can achieve.”
How was this milestone reached in less than 36 months?
The Cheki boss said, “With a little research on the website, the Cheki website stands out as one of the easy-to-use websites in Nigeria. You simply search for your vehicle, find a certified dealer or seller, and negotiate a price. No matter what budget you have, Cheki can help you find the right car with their search-preference tools.”
She also stated that the website is also available on a wide range of platforms including a fully functional mobile site and apps available on the Nokia Ovi and Android App Stores. In addition, users can search for a car of their choice via SMS on MTN and Airtel Networks.
Mrs. Hodonu further reiterated that Cheki will continue to carve out a niche online and wants to bring more car dealers on its platform across Nigeria. “The founders are not resting on their oars even after recent expansion to other African countries, but want to continue to provide a one-stop shop services for all your automobile needs in sub-Saharan Africa”, she said.
