Peterborough, United Kingdom, January 22, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Trusted Car Buyers network has grown to 16 branches nationwide, making it the third largest and fastest-growing online car buying service in the UK.
Those joining the online car buyer group, which launched at the end of October, include dealers from: Brighton, Clacton-on-Sea, Croydon, Derry Londonderry, Durham, Knutsford, Prudhoe, Swansea and West Malling.
Five more branches are to be launched at the beginning of February, which would increase the car buyer’s network to 21.
The concept is very similar to how AutoTrader supplied dealers with an off-the-shelf solution to dealer websites with the Razsor product taking all the up-front expense and time involved in having a company build one.
The aim of the Trusted Car Buyers platform has always been simple: give dealers the tools to do what the other big online car buyers do, but for the purpose of replenishing stocks on their own forecourts, rather than making auction profit.
A spokesman for TrustedCarBuyers.com said: "We are pleased with the rate of growth we’ve seen in just two months.
"With five more branches to go live next month, we’ll only cement our position as a top online car buyer.
"Responses from dealerships across the country show there is desire for change in the motor industry."
What Makes Trusted Car Buyers Different?
The majority of online car buying services purchase vehicles to sell at trade auctions. As a result, they will typically buy the vehicle at below trade auction value to make a profit.
Trusted Car Buyers are different: a network of car dealers looking to replenish their own forecourts directly from the public. This means they can pay more for the car as auction fees, transportation costs and commission are taken out of the equation.
Essentially, they cut out the middle men and allow members of the public to sell their car directly to the motor dealer. The customer selling their car gets a much fairer price for the vehicle as the dealer can offer a much higher value.
Trusted Car Buyers also promise to stick to their prices, not to make unnecessary deductions and if they do have to deduct money due to damage on a vehicle they do it at the trade cost. The price they offer is often more than would be received in part exchange meaning that the seller can get a much better overall deal on the new vehicle.
What Does This Now Mean For The Motor Trade?
Trusted Car Buyers now have 16 branches open nationwide, all purchasing vehicles straight from the public. The car buying service is now open to all dealers, whereas previously, the process had only been reserved for large organisations looking to profit by reselling at auction.
Not only does this allow motor traders to source their stock direct from the public, but it also gives access to imperative motor trade tools to improve their profitability.
There are opportunities for 100 dealers to become part of the Trusted Car Buyer Network. The car buying service offers an excellent return on investment as well as boosting customer confidence by becoming part of a trusted and reliable brand.
