20 August 2015, 20:37

Lagos - Nigeria’s number one online classifieds, OLX, has announced its partnership with Mandilas, one of the leading players in the auto industry in a strategic relationship that will offer users on the OLX platform free vehicle valuation and diagnostic services.

In addition, Mandilas will list its vehicles on the OLX platform in an effort to attract buyers from across the country.

Speaking at a press conference, the OLX country manager, Lola Masha stated that “the partnership between two trusted brands in Nigeria - Mandilas and OLX - is truly one of a kind. It reinforces OLX’s commitment to enhancing its users experience on the platform and also provides a nationwide reach for Mandilas.”

She also stated that “this collaboration with Mandilas validates the effectiveness of OLX as a platform with a wide range of vehicles where buyers can find great car deals and trade with trusted sellers.”

The partnership will offer eligible users who post their cars for sale on the OLX site, an opportunity to have their cars screened and evaluated for free. At the end of the screening, the user will get an evaluation certificate from Mandilas that will state the current market value of the car as well as the condition of each part of the car.  This will benefit both the buyer who is worried about the worth and condition of the car they want to buy, and the seller who is not sure of the monetary value of the car.

While expressing delight working with OLX, the General Manager, Mandilas, Stephen Gladwin stated that “the partnership with OLX will help build trust amongst Nigerians who are in the market to buy or sell their used cars because of the certificate they get at the end of the screening process.” 

Gladwin added, “over the years, Mandilas has built a reputation of providing unrivalled service in the auto industry. We are excited about the partnership with OLX, the number one online classifieds site in Nigeria. OLX has provided a platform where users can feel safe buying and selling used vehicles across the country.’’

OLX is the world’s leading classifieds platform in growth markets and is available in more than 40 countries and over 50 languages. OLX connects local people to buy, sell or exchange used goods and services by making it fast and easy for anyone to post an ad through the mobile app. Every month, hundreds of millions of people in local markets around the world use OLX’s online marketplace to find and sell a wide range of products, including vehicles, electronics, phones and much more.
