Address: 1, Sylvia Crescent, Anthony Village, Lagos State — Website: autochek.africa — Phone no: +234-812-345-6789
AutoChek, which is formerly known as Cheki, is another great car dealer in Nigeria. In fact, the dealer is arguably one of the most popular in the country. However, unlike most other dealers who only sell cars directly to people, AutoChek also sells cars indirectly to people. In other words, aside from selling cars themself, the company also connects car buyers with sellers.
I should also state that AutoChek is a multinational company. Even though most people know it to be a Nigerian company, the dealer also does business in Ghana.
I should further add that the company offers car repair services. So if your car breaks down and you will like a competent person to repair it, you can also consider AutoChek for it.
