New online vehicle marketplace launches
VehicleGateway.com to serve Canadian buyers
Canadians can now find and purchase quality used vehicles in a fresh, new way: with confidence. Vehicle Gateway Corporation is proud to announce the launch of its flagship website, www.VehicleGateway.com; an online marketplace offering a vast inventory of quality pre-owned vehicles from reputable dealers and private sellers. The first-of-its-kind website is committed to providing Canadian consumers with the information they need to make an educated decision on one of the biggest purchases they will make.
As the only site dedicated exclusively to providing in-depth information on past histories and current conditions of pre-owned vehicles, VehicleGateway.com offers consumers the answers to questions that can't be found on a manufacturer's website, but that should be getting asked.
Purchasing a vehicle can be an intimidating experience, especially for someone who isn't an expert in all things motor. This is especially true when purchasing a used vehicle. Basic knowledge like "Does the car get good gas mileage?" or "How does it handle in winter conditions?" are things that may help shoppers decide between one model versus another. But what about questions regarding accident history, engine condition, or service/maintenance records, that are specific to the vehicles those consumers are looking at buying?
"VehicleGateway.com is taking the first step in building confidence in the Canadian second-hand vehicle marketplace by empowering consumers with the information that matters," says Peter Davies, Director of Sales and Marketing at Vehicle Gateway Corporation. "With VehicleGateway.com, consumers now have a source for quality used vehicles and a marketplace built around the full disclosure of pertinent information. Buying and selling used vehicles just became a lot safer and easier."
Other services that are currently available to Canadians - both online and in magazines - overlook what Canadian consumers are seeking: trustworthy information specific to the vehicle they are potentially going to purchase, not just overall specs of the general make and model. Furthermore, to reach consumers who are looking for used vehicle prices with new vehicle features, VehicleGateway.com is dedicated to Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles, which offer Canadians added benefits like inspections/restorations, warranties, and road-side assistance.
"We recognize that other competing sites are out there, but they can end up being very costly for both buyers and sellers, and they don't offer the same attention to detail that we at VehicleGateway.com pride ourselves on," says Davies. "When choosing VehicleGateway.com, private sellers are given a free place to advertise, and buyers are armed with an unprecedented level of insight into the vehicles they are purchasing."
Vehicle Gateway MOBILE - Canada's Quality Used Vehicles in the Palm of Your Hand
Vehicle Gateway Corporation also provides consumers with a new way of finding used vehicles in Canada - Vehicle Gateway Mobile. They are the only online vehicle marketplace in Canada with such an offering - a specially optimized version of their site that works efficiently on a cellular device or smartphone. By simply visiting www.VehicleGateway.com using the browser on any Internet-capable handheld device, Canadians can view Vehicle Gateway's complete catalog of quality used vehicles anytime, anywhere. Vehicle Gateway is literally putting the power back in the hands of the consumer.
