Conclusion


As far as my experience goes, I have posted ads in both of them, but could not see much difference in the response rate. I would suggest you to post your ads in both these services as either way - whether OLX is better or Quickr - it is going to benefit you as long as you are not posting premium ads and not paying them to post your ads.

Overall, OLX will be a better choice to choose from OLX and Quikr. But as per your question, if you want to sell your Dad's old car you should go for quikr as many people are using for the purpose which you mentioned.

Me and my friends circle always visit OLX. There is no particular reason for it. As there is too much advertisement for OLX it strikes my mind first. I bought several things from OLX. I never visited Quickrr. In most of the cases the seller who posted ad in OLX will post ad in Quickr too.

As I frequently use OLX, I am familiar with its UI and I feel it comfortable. Both platform provide user to post free advertisement. Why taking risk? just post your ad in both platforms. Don't bother about the platform, just post your ad in whatever free ad posting website you know.
