Trucks now for sale on the FOCUS website
FOCUS has partnered with Carfind.co.za in order to sell new and used trucks and trailers via the FOCUS website, and both teams are thrilled at the prospects for this new collaboration
The FOCUS website has a new addition – the Truck and Trailer Showroom, which offers readers the opportunity to view various trucks and trailers that are for sale. There are currently more than 50 new and used vehicles and trailers listed.
“Our readers collectively purchase thousands of trucks and trailers each year. We believe that this will make the purchasing process quick, easy and convenient for them,” says Charleen Clarke, editor of FOCUS magazine.
Vehicles can be filtered according to type, brand, price, dealership and location. All relevant information about the truck is displayed on the website including the year, model, kilometres, breaking system, torque, weight and monthly repayment.
“The showroom has a very simple design, which makes searching for a truck easy,” Clarke comments.
“The two companies have very different – but complementary – areas of expertise. Carfind.co.za has been a pioneer in the field of online vehicle trading for 17 years. FOCUS, on the other hand, is the most highly respected commercial vehicle magazine in South Africa and has been a leader in this industry for over three decades,” says Frank McDouall, co-founder of Carfind.co.za.
This partnership has also allowed Carfind.co.za to expand its service offering to commercial vehicles. In the past, the company focused only on new- and used-car sales. McDouall notes: “With our association with FOCUS, we want to establish Carfind.co.za as the go-to place for trading in new and used trucks and trailers.”
McDouall is considered the top online vehicle-trading authority in sub-Saharan Africa. When Carfind.co.za was conceptualised in 2000, it was a ground-breaking service within the motor industry.
Since then, McDouall has continued to reshape the industry. Carfind.co.za recently launched its online 360º interior view and now, in partnership with FOCUS, offers the Truck and Trailer Showroom.
“The Carfind.co.za team believes that, working with FOCUS, we can make a real difference in truck and trailer purchases. It’s never been easier to buy a truck or trailer. We believe the product we offer is unique and superior to other products currently available in the market. Our partnership with FOCUS will also help drive awareness of Carfind.co.za and its entry into this sector of the market,” McDouall comments.
“The FOCUS team is excited about offering this new service to our readers, and we are thrilled to be teaming up with such innovators in the online vehicle-sales industry. You can now get your vehicle and news all in one place,” Clarke concludes.
