Lagos - With the variety of options to choose from when
buying a used car, people are often advised to be patient and vigilant to
ensure they choose their ideal vehicle.
When in the market to buy a car, multiple trips to car
dealers are taken or one looks out for the “Buy Me” sign. These trips can be
time consuming and quite stressful especially in a city like Lagos.
With the emergence of online classified platforms like OLX,
the process has been simplified and one can view several cars for sale with
information on their specs, price, brand and model all from the comfort of
Opeoluwa, a Lagos based lawyer remembered his experience
when he was ready to buy his first car.

Ope stated that he saw the OLX ad on television and it
prompted him to go to the site to look out for cars after he had a successful
experience on the site with the flat he currently lives in.
“OLX had proven to be a handy website at the time when a few
friends and I were interested in taking out a lease in Lagos. I noticed then
that the website had a vibrant automobile section, so I took a gander and
eventually purchased the car.”
Ope added that his experience using the platform was
seamless. “The prices on the platform were very reasonable and the most amazing
thing is that I have not had a problem with the car since I bought it.”
He also admitted that the online marketplace like other
sites has had its share of scammers but noted that with the safety measures
recently being implemented by the management of OLX, such as physical
verification, collaboration with the police, amongst others, scamming has
become a thing of the past.For
