Ride with Magnus – December 2019 edition

Do you know that more than 95% of all “used vehicles” coming into Nigeria have been involved in one form of accident or the other, or are purchased from an auction firm in the country of origin? 

Have you ever checked Carfax for a report on the vehicle you are buying? 

Are you aware of the exact nature of accident your “Brand New Tokubo” was involved in?  Do you know the color or issues surrounding your new ride prior to your ownership?

What is the exact mileage on your vehicle before you became the new owner?  It should interest you to know that some dealers are able to reduce mileage on vehicles before it is delivered to the end user!

Several questions arise in the course of trying to make any buying decisions in life.  It is therefore important that you have the right answers to your question from a source you can rely on.  This would enable you make an informed buying decision or otherwise.

Would you therefore buy a vehicle that you know the accident has no impact on the frame, movement or durability of the car?  If yes, read on!!!

I have been a professional for over 18years and throughout my working life, I have purchased all manners of vehicles from within (Nigerian used) to “COTONU brought in”, “direct American Tokunbo” and also brand new cars.  I would say, I have had my own personal experiences of vehicle issues from when I could afford one.  But top on the list was the seizure of a Honda I-VTEC by customs which was brought in through Cotonu some years ago – this was my turning point.

What I know now about vehicles, I have gathered over my working life and thus, reason for setting up “Ride with Magnus”.  It would interest readers to know that if you purchase a vehicle through our portal, you would be dealing with a professional and a reliable / verifiable contact.

While still actively involved in the consulting business, my side hustle is in supporting talents in procuring durable and affordable cars (Toyota, Lexus, Honda, bikes and any other vehicle make of your choice).  But from experience and as a talent in the past, my advice is to limit your preference to those top three mentioned above. 

Through our portal, we are giving talents the opportunity to own their dream cars through a reliable source that can be verified and checked out – I have been there, done that and know what it takes to be a talent and now, an importer (side hustle).

Talents require their own vehicle to move around freely and easily (this is no longer luxury), even as the rains have stopped pouring.  Talents also don’t want vehicles that are saddled with maintenance issues and challenges.  Talents also have limited funds to make procurement, therefore a source that can guarantee, cheap, reliable, low mileage and affordable cars would go a long way to ease the burden of all buying talents.

Maintaining these vehicles periodically and as at when due are hurdles talents (especially female) face in keeping the vehicles in good and top shape.

At https://www.vi-mtalentassist.com/ we are providing an end-to-end service offering to all “would be talent” who purchase a vehicle through our platform.  Ranging from installment payments (not more than three months), full payment on delivery, repairs and periodic maintenance, Q&A on your vehicle and a partner you can talk to on your vehicle issues.

If you are interested, I encourage you to view the pictures on this portal for our December 2019 top picks, place a call to speak to any of our consultants or if you prefer, speak directly to Magnus.
