The company will even let you test-drive it for a week.
Over the past year, online shopping has gained in popularity and web-based purchases have become more accessible than ever. With stay-at-home regulations, people have been placing mobile purchases pretty regularly — you can get practically anything you need with just a few clicks.
There's no shame in opting for the easier route when it comes to shopping. If you're too busy, you can conveniently place an online order and have groceries, clothes and now even a new car delivered straight to your doorstep.
Carooga is a tech startup that allows B.C. residents to order their dream car online without ever stepping foot in a dealership.
"If spending hours dealing with pushy salespeople sounds like your personal nightmare, this is the perfect option for you," notes Jillian Loeppky, Brand Officer for Carooga. "You might have heard of some other auto groups doing this sort of thing, but Carooga's different because its financing is totally online too."
Yup, in just two minutes, you can get pre-approved for a real car loan, then click to search Carooga's vehicles and see your own personalized financing rate on each and every ride. All of this is done without any extra fees waiting to surprise you at checkout.
Carooga delivers a pressure-free, no-BS purchasing experience — right from the comfort of your couch. That means you'll be able to actually enjoy the exciting process of buying a new ride instead of dreading it.
"So many of us, millennials especially, just hate the idea of negotiating. Especially on a used car that you can't even be sure will last," says Loeppky. This is why Carooga only sells zero-accident vehicles (and provides a CARFAX report to prove it): to give you that added confidence you probably wouldn't get from some insincere salesperson at the nearest dealership.
If you can't fathom buying a car online without touching it first, you don't have to. 360-degree images on the Carooga website give you a great feel for your new vehicle right from your couch. Once you've found a car you love, Carooga will deliver it for free (in a fancy glass trailer designed to make your neighbours jealous) and you'll have a week to drive it around to see if the car fits your lifestyle. Yeah, that kind of trumps the seven-minute test-drive you'd get at a traditional dealership.
If you don't love your new car after giving it a spin, you can return it for a full refund. Bonus: if you want to trade or sell your old car, Carooga will even pick it up and take it off your hands for you.
The folks at Carooga are there to assist you, but you can relax knowing you won't have to deal with pushy salesmen, extensive paperwork or wasted time at the dealership — this purchase is yours to enjoy.
In a time when you can order your dinner, groceries and clothes to your door, why not do the same with your car? At long last, you really can kick back, relax and enjoy the ride.
