The month of Ramadan is just around the corner, and along with all the blessings, it also brings some amazing deals and offers that avid shoppers simply cannot resist. The same holds true for the car market where intense competition ensues among car manufacturers to offer the best Ramadan car deals.
ServiceMarket, an online platform which allows customers to instantly compare competitive car insurance quotes from multiple providers and buy car insurance policies online, has teamed up with CarSwitch.com, an online marketplace that features used cars from individual sellers, to offer free car insurance with every car bought via CarSwitch.com during Ramadan. Now, not only can buyers get inspected and warrantied cars directly from end sellers, but they can also get the car insured free of charge. This is the first time that two online marketplaces are working together to launch a fully subsidized offer (worth AED 1000-1500 in value) in the UAE market. The car insurance promotion is valid until the end of Ramadan.
Commenting on their collaborative effort, Bana Shomali, Founder of ServiceMarket, said “Getting a car insured may seem like a formidable task to some, and we realize the importance of selecting a policy with suitable car insurance coverage. On ServiceMarket, customers can easily compare the car insurance options available to them, so that they can be sure that they choose the right policy, at the best price. ServiceMarket aims to simplify the process of getting a car insured, so we are glad to join hands with CarSwitch.com to make things even more hassle-free for buyers. And what better time to help them out than the month of giving.”
Co-founder of CarSwitch.com, Imad Hammad, says “We are extremely excited to work with ServiceMarket to transform the used car marketplace and car insurance industry and deliver an entirely new concept to UAE residents. Startups and online marketplaces are changing the game, giving exceptional value to consumers in the process, and redefining the traditional business models”.
