One of the world’s leading eCommerce platforms for pre-owned cars, CARS24 has taken the aerial route to deliver cars to its customers in Sydney.

According to the company statement, “It flew a pre-owned refurbished car via a helicopter for delivery to its new owners.”

“CARS24 apart from its technological prowess is also ahead of the creativity curve. This unique approach demonstrates a new future where cars might be delivered not by road but by air to remote locations. We were also the first ones to gift wrap and deliver over 5000 cars in the UAE. As a brand, we want to establish an idea that is not only unique in the markets we operate in, but also make it a trend within global markets.”

CARS24’s newly opened mega refurbishment lab (MRL) in UAE would roll out close to 20000+ cars in a year. The lab will run round the clock to ensure that each vehicle undergoes a stringent 150-point quality check prior to listing the cars on its eCommerce platform.

This MRL at Jebel Ali has 70 bays, 5 high-end Italian paint booths, and has the capacity to roll out close to 1500 cars a month. This leased 1,000,000 sq. ft facility with a total contract value in excess of $10 million (AED 40 million), is one of Dubai’s largest-ever leasing deals on record, as per the reports.

“Each car bought from CARS24 comes with 7 days return policy and most importantly 2 years warranty. Cars on our platform undergo a 150+ point inspection check, are refurbished thoroughly, and go through the stringent RTA test before they are listed online. Due to our level of confidence in the cars we roll out from our MRL, we can ensure customers’ complete peace of mind for two years by offering a warranty during that period,” added Mr. Abhinav.
