On 18th November 2018, OLX, the no.1 app in auto classifieds and CarFirst, a leading used car online auction and trading platform, successfully staged the second OLX CarFirst CarBazaar. After the initial success of its predecessor event in Karachi, the event this time was organized at Expo Center, Lahore which brought thousands of car sellers and buyers together.
The event was a massive hit as car enthusiasts whole-heartedly welcomed the hassle free idea of buying, selling and exchanging cars under one roof. The highlight of the event was the dealer’s car inventory and CarFirst certified inventory which was of keen interest to more than 8000 people who showed up at the event. In addition to that, more than 400 cars were inspected on the day, out of which numerous people sold their cars to www.carfirst.com. For the first time in Pakistan, the event introduced a unique 15 minutes live auction through which the car sellers got an instant offer of their car and that too in no time.
In order to bolster the commitment of CarFirst and OLX in revolutionizing the car trading process, the OLX CarFirst CarBazaar had PSO as its main sponsor while TPL Insurance had a notable presence as a sponsor and were exclusively offering 20% discount on their services for the event. In addition to that, Al- Haj Faw Motors, Daewoo Battery and Foodpanda were great additions to the event’s sponsor list while City 42 and FM 103 were TV and radio media partners respectively.
