Toyota Wins Best e-Bay Store Title

Toyota wins eBay Best Branded Motors Store title and supplies manufacturer branded, guaranteed, parts for current and old models.

Toyota Claims e-Bay Best Branded Motors Store Title

Toyota claimed the Best Branded Motors Store title at the 2015 eBay Motors Awards. The manufacturer's store opened two years ago and enables motorists to purchase genuine, manufacturer, parts and accessories backed by a “no quibble” one year guarantee. Prices match those charged at branded dealerships. The judges said the store provides an “outstanding customer experience” which is reflected by its one-hundred percent satisfaction rating. Toyota said the judges were also impressed by the manner it utilised the store in its capacity as a Red Nose Day partner. It sold noses for the grilles of its vehicles and the proceeds benefited the charity.

Steve Settle, Toyota GB’s Director of Customer Services, said: “This is an excellent seal of approval for our e-commerce programme.” We are committed to making it as easy as possible for customers to purchase items, safe in the knowledge that they are genuine and backed by our warranty. eBay provides us with a respected, high-quality marketplace in which to operate and we will continue to develop our store to provide an even wider range of services.”

How Toyota eBay Store Works

The Toyota eBay Store makes it easy to find an item for both current and older models. Options include searching by categories such as: accessories, care and cleaning, parts, servicing and merchandise. Each category incorporates sub-categories such as brake discs, brake pads and bulbs (under parts). Narrow the search further by picking a specific car such as: Aygo, Avensis or Corolla. There is a keyword search box too. The results include “buy it now” prices so there is no need to compete with other shoppers via auction (as with some listings). Payment is by PayPal.

Prices include free standard delivery unless the item is more than one and a half metres long. There is also a premier service should the part be required more quickly. Furthermore, an item can – on occasion - be delivered to an Argos store then collected in person. 

2015 e-Bay Motors Awards

The 2015 e-Bay Motors Awards incorporated a wide range of categories. Highlights included: New Car of the Year, Used Car of the Year, Tyre Brand of the Year, Oils and Lubricant Brand of the Year, Campaign of the Year and Franchise Dealer of the Year. Toyota's win – in the Branded Motors Store category – included ten other finalists such as manufacturers, tyre suppliers and parts suppliers. Nominees were: Black Circles, BMW, Castrol, Euro Car Parts, Lexus, Mick’s Garage, Mini, National Tyres, Nissan and Suzuki.
