And with the trend that most customers are satisfied with online shopping, and some dealers witnessing a significant growth of online users. Volvo has been among the pioneers to keep up with the trend with its release of a new end-to-end car purchase service.
In spite of the fact that this is not the first company to provide the capability to buy car online, Volvo supposes its new outstanding service will be the most notable point, especially when considering its guaranteed part-exchanged price and other finance choices.
How does the service work?
Instead of falling into the competition with Volvo’s dealer network, the new online service works directly with its retailers. Therefore, when you have already created an account, you can look for the nearest dealer who you are going to make transaction with.
