Taking place during the Memorial Day weekend in Atlanta, the groundbreaking “Renew Your Ride” event presents individuals with the opportunity to engage in face-to-face consultations with skilled builders.
These consultations provide valuable insights on effectively extending the longevity of all types of vehicles, ranging from cherished classics and ongoing projects to everyday models.
Leveraging the newly launched eBay Guaranteed Fit purchase protections, the program empowers attendees to make informed decisions about their automotive investments.
As an added benefit, participants will receive a generous credit of up to $200 towards their part or accessory purchases on eBay Motors, enabling them to acquire the necessary components to enhance their vehicle’s performance and durability.
“More than ever, drivers are waiting to buy new vehicles and opting instead to upgrade the car they already have,” said Ron Jaiven, GM of Parts & Accessories, eBay Motors. “Renew Your Ride demonstrates the significance of eBay Guaranteed Fit and how eBay empowers shoppers to trust they’re getting the right part for their project.”
With new car prices soaring by almost 30% compared to 2020, and the presence of high-interest rates and affordability worries, prospective buyers are increasingly delaying new vehicle purchases.
Embracing the growing trend of upgrading and customizing existing cars rather than opting for new ones, “Renew Your Ride” provides a platform for individuals seeking inspiration.
Car builders, including the acclaimed six-time GRAMMY-winning artist, entrepreneur, drift driver, and car builder T-Pain, share their real-world expertise and showcase their remarkable creations, fueling the imagination of enthusiasts and encouraging them to embark on their own automotive journeys.
Demonstrating his passion for automobiles, T-Pain, a self-proclaimed car enthusiast, collaborated with the team from Donut, a renowned automotive YouTube channel, to enhance his cherished 1994 Honda Accord.
Leveraging the reliability of eBay Guaranteed Fit, which provides enhanced purchase protection, T-Pain procured parts for his project with confidence.
Introduced earlier this year, these purchase safeguards empower users by ensuring that the parts and accessories they acquire from the marketplace are a perfect match for their vehicles.
By simply identifying the ‘Fits’ checkmark on eligible listings, shoppers can rest assured that they are making the right selection or receive a refund if necessary, instilling trust and peace of mind throughout the purchasing process.
“My Honda Accord is fully custom inside and out – it’s a true one-of-one, and I want to keep it on the road forever,” said T-Pain. “With eBay Guaranteed Fit, I was confident in finding the right parts to make the performance and comfort upgrades I wanted, like a new exhaust and head unit.”
