Want to test drive a car without spending your weekend in a dealership? Drivelist delivers. Drivelist (drivelist.com.au) is a newly launched startup from the University of Sydney Union’s accelerator program, INCUBATE, that aims to take the wasted weekends and hassle out of buying a new car.
Drivelist lets car buyers book online from a range of new makes and models. Customers select their vehicle, preferred time and place and Drivelist delivers your test drive straight to the location of your choice.
Shane Herft, Drivelist’s Co-founder and Managing Director explains “Drivelist lets customers skip the showroom pressure, by trying out cars on the roads they know best. Last week one of our first customers used us to find out whether the SUV she wanted would fit in the garage.”
James Alexander, INCUBATE Program Manager says, “Everyone knows how painful and outdated the car buying process can be. We were impressed with Drivelist’s ease of use and impressive team which is why we accepted into the Winter cycle.”
Drivelist’s team is complemented by advisors from as far afield as Silicon Valley, and closer to home through Hank Kingman, ex-GM of Drive.com.au “The Internet has made finding the right car for you easier than ever, and Drivelist is the next step in offering consumers even more convenience and service.”
Drivelist was founded in Sydney, Australia, in April, 2013. Drivelist lets car buyers book test drives online (www.drivelist.com.au) from a range of new car makes and models. Drivelist was started by Shane Herft (ex Whybin TBWA, Lexus, Fairfax ￼￼
￼Media), Alex Joyce (ex Spintel, Holler Advertising) and Peter Chen (ex Whybin TBWA, Holler Advertising).
In addition to the management team, Drivelist’s advisory board includes Hank Kingman, formerly GM Drive.com.au and Sam Edelson formerly Business Development at AirBNB and Morgan Stanley.
