Those more frequent posters help us make sure the community is safe.

Long story short it is an automotive repair marketplace linking consumers and sellers.  Its not new in the UK and US but is here. We did a lot of industry lead market research last year which was really positive.  We have a "proof of concept" web site that was put up last week and we use that to bounce the idea around.  You need to google "carbox co nz" if you want to take a look.

Nice, concept. I'm from an insurance background but I'm trying to dis-intermediate insurers e.g. dental insurance but your concept works well in the motor insurance space - where as you know lot's of people only have third party so need help with their own repairs. Have you looked at the AU market? Probably worth giving me a call. PM for my number. (Chris)
