OneSwoop features WhatCar.com to become first one stop shop car service on the Web Monday 5 February 2001 PDF Print Content from WhatCar.com will give UK's car buyers impartial advice and allow customers to value and to place adverts at a 50 per cent discount to sell their old car OneSwoop (www.oneswoop.com), the UK's leading online car retailer, today announced that it will be featuring content from WhatCar.com, the top online car magazine. The site will provide customers with advice from the WhatCar.com experts on how to sell your car, instant online car valuations and the opportunity to place classified adverts direct on the web in WhatCar.com and in Autocar. OneSwoop believes these new functions will provide customers with the first one stop shop car service on the Web - the most practical and engaging buying and selling service on the Internet. In particular, customers will be able to log onto the company's web-site to reveal the value of their car in seconds with the integration of WhatCar.com's car valuation engine. Users will be asked to specify the make, model, body style and age of their car into the online form before submitting their request. The valuation engine will instantly deliver a verdict from the experts at WhatCar.com, including the estimated price the customer would receive from a trade buyer, part-exchange, dealer or from a private sale. The values will also be accompanied by a short report card, giving the customer a star rating for their current car and a history of the specifications expected of their exact model. The arrangement will also allow OneSwoop's customers to sell their existing cars by placing classified adverts on WhatCar.com, the UK's number one car buying web-site, and offline, in Autocar magazine, directly from their PC. Users can submit a simple online form, stating the make, model, year, registration, asking price, mileage and full description of their car to secure their classified advert at 50 per cent discount on standard rates, courtesy of OneSwoop's unique deal with WhatCar.com. Tom Buehlmann, Marketing Director, OneSwoop, said, "One of the major considerations made by customers when buying a new car is how and where to sell their current car. The independent content from WhatCar.com makes OneSwoop the obvious choice for selling cars, as well as buying them, on the Internet. For the first time, the Internet will be able to offer car buyers comprehensive advice on getting the best deal on their old car, as well as guaranteeing maximum value on their new car." Buehlmann added, "These latest services are just some of the innovations recently introduced to the site. There has been a steady flow of new services and improvements. These have included: OneSwoop refreshing its home-page, offer personal loans from Marks and Spencer Financial Services, provide car insurance through Auto Direct, introduce a new configurator and add free one year AA breakdown cover on all cars sold." Furthermore, customers will be able to seek independent advice from WhatCar.com by referring to the "Sell Your Car" guide, available on the OneSwoop web-site. The guide explains the benefits and dangers of the different options open to people looking to sell their car, from trading in to a dealer to selling at an auction.
