Women driving demand for preowned cars, says Spinny

Spinny – a complete online-to-offline retail platform for buying and selling preowned or used cars – has sold more than 1,200 cars since lockdown 4.0. The company has observed a 400% increase in queries from women buyers since preowned cars are now considered a ‘necessity’ for urban households.

For the safety of all customers and employees, Spinny has processed all orders #WithExtraCare via a contactless delivery system.

As women are inconvenienced by social distancing and other COVID-19 related restrictions, owning a car is now seen as the swiftest, safest way of personal mobility. Due to the liquidity crunch, however, along with other customers, women are opting for preowned cars. Therefore, Spinny is providing a safe modern-day solution at each touch-point keeping ‘Customer Convenience’ and safety at the centre of every experience. Since the lockdown, the number of women customers is estimated to be 20% compared to 10% women car buyers in 2019

Commenting on the trend of women preferring preowned cars, Niraj Singh, CEO & Co-Founder – Spinny said: “The ongoing pandemic has created unprecedented challenges for customers, including women. Be it buying, selling, online ordering, home-test drives or home deliveries, we have set industry standards in zero-contact processes.  Men try but women helm the responsbilities of the safety of the family in a household, and with the rising enquires, it’s evident that women wouldn’t comprosie in safety in transportation for any houshold.”

 In its Home Test Drive #WithExtraCare, Spinny rigorously follows the necessary precautions as per WHO guidelines, with safety as the top priority. Once on the website or app, buyers go through three simple steps for zero-contact home delivery of their chosen car. Thereby, Spinny has processed numerous orders since lockdown 4.0. In facilitating online purchases, the process is wholly transparent. The car’s entire history is online with HD images covering every angle of the vehicle. Customers are given a real-time virtual tour in viewing the car. All Spinny cars displayed on the portal are available for a home-test drive at the customer’s convenience.

Besides, Spinny stringently ensures employee hygiene. Screened for temperatures daily, the staff adhere to all social distancing norms while attending to customers. Across cities, Spinny car hubs function as deep sanitisation zones where each car is sanitised before and after every test drive with special focus on frequently-touched areas. During the test drive, customers receive a complimentary safety kit comprising masks, gloves and sanitizers. Once satisfied, the customer can buy the car on the spot after the test drive or request home delivery.
