AutoBox is an online shopping platform offering Nigerians genuine auto parts and electrical accessories, a currently untapped niche market in ever growing Nigerian e-commerce industry.

Vehicle owners are usually at the mercy of their mechanics who rip them off, coupled with the hassles and stress of trying to purchase genuine parts or electrical accessories in the market that is littered with fake and substandard products. AutoBox is looking to lift this burden off vehicle owners with value propositions of both high-quality products and convenient/stress free shopping. Users can order parts online and have them delivered to the comfort of their homes.

The AutoBox revenue model is simply to liaise with dealers of genuine products (auto parts and electrical accessories) who give AutoBox discounted prices, with profit made from retail prices.

This is obviously an unexplored segment of Nigerian eCommerce and the AutoBox team believe they are young, dynamic and proactive enough to carry it through. AutoBox was created by Charles Philip Ukaegbu.

AutoBox is a finalist in the TechCabal Battlefield, holding on Friday the 21st of February, at Four Points, Lekki. Register now to attend.

The TechCabal Battlefield is proudly sponsored by Stanbic IBTC Bank, iROKING, Jobberman, Konga, Etisalat, with support from VC4Africa, Ventureburn, Capital Square, Easy Taxi, Ebonylife TV, YNaija and RELOADED Magazine.
