Every year, vehicle sellers pay a tax of Tk50-60 lakhs to the government
Now that the pandemic is subsiding, the demand for cars is increasing every month.
To make the process of purchasing a vehicle easier, CarDealer specializes in importing new and reconditioned automobiles from Japan and other nations.
Mehedy Hassan, the owner of CarDealer began his journey after gaining experience in this field working for a car exporting company…
Initially, Mehedy received various training on how to sell vehicles but for the longest time wasn’t able to sell a single one.
Getting inspiration from his colleagues, he was able to sell 27 vehicles in the next three months making him the highest seller in the Bangladeshi market for which he was awarded permanent employment in the company.
With a vision of having his own dealership at some point, he left this job at the company’s export division and started gaining experience in importing. This way, he gained a lot more ideas and knowledge about the entire car market as he had to supervise everything in great detail.
He later used to buy automobiles with his license and then sell them through the showroom where he worked.
After a year, he started his own showroom, Global Automobiles, with the help of a partner and later opened CarDealer.
Having worked in a showroom before, he realized that they had to wait for consumers all the time, Mehedy wanted to do things differently and it was then that he had the idea to start making videos.
However, it was not an easy task and for the first two years, he worked in collaboration to create videos, and then gradually he went alone in making them.
Currently, the company has several showrooms in Baridhara, and every month the sales are satisfactory, according to Mehedy.
And during some months if the sale isn't up to par, Mehedy says he still tries to assist individuals with whatever knowledge he has gathered along the way.
In response to a question concerning future plans, he stated that the planning is "certainly different”.
They do not only want to sell automobiles but also want to open a service centre with all of the necessary equipment and client assistance.
They primarily want CarDealer to be a reliable company that caters to all kinds of needs relating to owning a vehicle.
CarDealer also accepts pre-orders, which enables customers to decide on what they exactly want, be it the colour trim, or mechanism.
A pre-ordered automobile takes about 35 to 40 days to arrive.
They also have car-related video tutorials but they soon plan to make them more informative so that individuals are able to choose their cars from the comfort of their own homes and according to their budget.
Engine replacement is guaranteed for two years by CarDealer and if the battery fails, they will perform the service. They give their services while keeping consumers' requirements in mind.
Every year, vehicle sellers pay taxes worth Tk5,000-6,000 crore to the government, and he feels satisfied that he is contributing to the country's general progress.
