Carooga was created by professionals with years of expertise in the automotive industry who saw first-hand the difficult nature of the car dealership environment. They sought out a better way to approach car buying that was more comfortable, efficient and provided savings to their customer base. This inspired Carooga, a tech startup-up with an online car buying model that allows customers to get pre-qualified in just 2 minutes, and shop used cars at market-leading prices thanks to their decreased overhead. Though recently launched, Carooga plans to continually grow their inventory base to meet the growing customer demand in the Vancouver market.

From Google’s Think Auto 2020 report, key findings showed that consumer habits are shifting when it comes to car buying. 40% of millennials are certain of buying their next car online and 29% of overall car buyers said they would consider buying their next car online. Carooga is jumping on the pulse of this market change and providing a comfortable option that allows consumers to buy a car the same way they order food from the grocery store, or really anything else, online.

What has not changed over time is how broken the current car buying process truly is. According to a Beepi Consumer Automotive Index survey, 52% of car shoppers feel anxious or uncomfortable at dealerships. Millennials lead the pack in their dislike, with 56% saying they’d rather clean their homes than negotiate with a car dealer.

Brand Officer, Jillian Loeppky, mentions Carooga’s inspiration, “Married into the car business, I’ve seen firsthand the cries for change from thousands of customers. They want honest advice, reasonable pricing, a test drive that lasts more than a few minutes, and are all so tired of the add-ons and fees. We heard a desire to remove the “dealership” altogether from the car buying experience” - and so they did. Jillian and the team at Carooga understood these frustrations and formulated an alternative designed to disrupt the market.

Carooga allows customers to purchase at their own pace without the sales pressure that is typically found at car dealerships. They have also removed the time barriers and the endless hours spent waiting for paperwork at a dealership by creating a revolutionary technology, the first of its kind in Canada, that allows customers to see their personalized rates on each and every vehicle with no impact to their credit score, all in real-time.

Say goodbye to bringing your dad, or ‘lot lawyer’ to buy a car, now that you can do it from the comfort of your own home. One price, anytime you want, no salesmen, no negotiations, no hidden fees, and a money back guarantee. Visit Carooga’s website to try out the new car buying experience for yourself.
