Car buying complication


The confusion and debate amongst family members starts with the Size, Model, Color, Company and most importantly Price. Like marriage, in India buying a car is a family affair. Parents, wife and children all have a say and if you are in an extended joint family then your uncle, aunties and cousins also have a kind word to put in. I remember the time when we got our first car, it was an event really. The stress and the entire hullabaloo which followed was almost comical.

After everything is decided upon, we set out on actually finding the car and more often than not it turns out to be way over our budget so we cut down our aspirations and decide on something that we can actually afford. Few years down the line, the car gets old and all the newer models make you want to buy them and the drill continues.

Quikr NXT cuts down this long process. You can check the cars in the comfort of your home. You can even sell your car and use the money to buy your new car. I know checking out different models and visit those showrooms is tiring, but now all that is possible with the help of a single app. You can directly talk to the dealer thus eliminating the middleman, who as we all know it is an expert in minting money out of us.  

The best feature of Quikr NXT and I cannot emphasis on this enough is the chat feature! You don’t have to deal with the random calls, all the conversation can happen on chat and that really is the best thing ever for me. I think whatsapp has spoilt me enough that I really do prefer chatting than actually calling people up.

Quikr NXT also lists down all the options based on your preference, Color, Sedan or Hunchback, Budget etc you name it and it’s there. This helps in eliminating all the things that you are not looking for giving you a focused list of item that you will be interested in.

It’s not just useful for buying, you can also sell your car and it is as convenient as buying a car. You can put up the details and other necessary information and the price that you are willing to sell it for and soon you shall have a number of people approaching you to buy it. No don’t worry, you won’t get lots of calls making the whole experience tiresome, remember the chat feature? You can just communicate via text and only when you think you have found your buyer can you share your number and other personal details. Tip that I use -  I have made a note in my phone with all the FAQs and other necessary details a buyer is bound to ask and I just copy paste the same thing to everyone thus making it all the more convenient for me.

Quikr NXT making car buying and selling easy!

Ladies compartment discussion

            “Ladies compartments are segregation or empowering?” he asked me.

I wasn’t really ready for the question and I wondered which of the two is right. I contemplated and came to the conclusion that it is about Convenience.

            “It’s convenient”, I announced.

            “Don’t you think they are restricting you to those two compartments?” he argued.

            “No, we can still travel in other coach, the ladies compartment is just an added convince.”

            “Stupid! it is us men telling you that you are not safe from us and that’s why we are giving you a special coach where we cannot enter.”



I was speechless.

Quikr NXT – No Fikar, Chat Quikr

                   What I thought was an easy and fastest way turned out to be most time consuming and not very efficient. I wanted to sell my old phone and I thought let me try these new sell old goods websites. I signed up and put up all the necessary details, the first few callers were a breeze I thought this is a cake walk. As time passed it was kind of got annoying to answer the same thing to each caller, repeat the same thing the most inconvenience was when they used to call at ungodly hours. Some callers were genuine and some just came across as creeps. There has to be a way out I thought to myself, but there wasn’t.  If I wanted to sell my phone online I would have to deal with such men and such nuisances.


            When I heard about the chat feature available with Quikr NXT I was glad that at least someone thought of this option. You can find out more here -  http://www.quikr.com/ .

So here are my 3 reasons why I just love this feature –

Convenience -  This is the most important reason for me, it is very convenient.  I am a student, so half my day goes in attending lectures. The other half doing the assignments/blogging/vlogging and whatever little time is left it goes into catching up with friends. At other times I am just plain bored to pick up a call and answer all the same question which the previous 10 callers asked. Now in all these situations it becomes rather problematic to keep attending calls but with the chat feature available I could just chat away and it wouldn’t feel like an additional task, as texting is a second nature to almost all the people my age. I could even just write a note about all the details and FAQs and then just copy paste it to whoever texts me, convenient for both right?

Safety – Now we all are aware of those people who are really not interested in buying the product but would just call because it is a girl’s number. You would know more about such men if you are a girl, I am sure you would have at least one such experience. I am very cautious about giving my phone number on a public forum. This chat function just eliminates that problem, you could just simply block a person or not respond to it if you feel even the slightest hunch about him.

Chat History – I am a very forgetful person, if a lot of information is shared at the same time I shall zone out and just  pretend that I understood everything. Not a good quality? Yes, I agree! So with the chat feature, I could always go back and check what we have spoken, who I have spoken too – considering there will be a lot of people contacting me during that time. So well this just makes my job easier right? Everything is right there for me to check and keep everything in order.
