CarBuddy.com.au Grabs 6% of Australian Online Automotive Classified

Market in 3 months


MELBOURNE 17th March 2009 – According to results released today from internet

traffic measurement firm Hitwise, CarBuddy.com.au has grabbed 6% of Australia's

online automotive classified market since launching earlier this year.


CarBuddy.com.au is aggressively taking on rivals by offering free standard listings

until June 2010 and a host of extra information on every car listed including the car's

market value, environmental ratings and ANCAP safety ratings as standard for each

listing. Car dealers can send their available stock to the service via dealer inventory

providers and private sellers can list directly via the website.


“CarBuddy.com.au is already delivering hundreds of qualified sales leads every week

to car dealers” said Phil Druce, General Manager. “We are only a few percentage

points from becoming the second most popular automotive classified site in

Australia”. 


Hundreds of car dealers have signed up to the service since launch, including AHG

and other large dealer networks. Advertising can be seen each weeknight as sponsor

of Channel 10's Traffic Report (ATN) in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, throughout

car-related search results on the web and on portable billboards around Australia.
