As all of you may be aware, the Pandemic caused by COVID-19, better known as the Coronavirus, has wrecked utter havoc on the daily lives of people across the globe. Pakistan is no exception and the government had imposed a total lockdown and urged people to stay in their houses to prevent the spread of the aforementioned pandemic.
It is no secret that staying at home in quarantine can be tedious and boring, and may limit one’s activities, however, the extent of this may be lessened by online services, which promise a wholesome experience without having to leave your couch.
With that in mind, we bring you some of the things you can do on PakWheels without leaving the safety and security of your own house.
1) Read the PakWheels Blog
Living by the motto “If it’s on wheels, we’ve got it covered”, the PakWheels Blog is the go-to place for the latest in automotive news and updates from within and beyond the country, it features reviews, buyer’s guides, and even video reviews. These days, the Blog’s dominant role is to serve as a forum to discuss developments in the automotive landscape of Pakistan such as the launch of the new Toyota Yaris, the details surrounding the expected Proton X70 SUV or the arrival of Audi’s first electric vehicle, the e-Tron Quattro SUV. If you want to stay updated on the bleeding edge of the automotive scene in Pakistan, the PakWheels Blog has you covered.
Feeling bored and distant while sitting at home, grab your phone and start creating discussion threads on PakWheels’ Forums where you can engage and discuss auto-related thoughts with other auto lovers. Moreover, there are already hundreds of discussion threads on forums; you can opt to join the conversation thread you like.
3) Explore New and Used Cars on PakWheels.com
Are you planning to buy a new or used car? Then look no further than using the tools available on PakWheels’ website. Not only can you compare cars for features and specifications, but you can also compare financing options and insurance policies between banks! Fancy buying a used car? Then select from the thousands of used cars in PakWheels’ used car section. Where you can find vehicles in almost every price range, for example, the 2003 Model Year Diahatsu Cuore range kicks off at under 4 lacs, while a 2007 Toyota Corolla Gli 1.3 MT starts from around 7.5 lacs, with plenty more vehicles at other price ranges, so you can be sure there is something for you regardless of your budget.
While we highly recommend avoiding any physical purchasing activities or visiting dealerships (most of which would be closed due to the pandemic anyway) until the situation improves, there is nothing stopping you from making your mind and selecting the best option in the meanwhile.
