Leading Used Vehicle Superstore Claims Auto Dealer Monthly’s Independent Dealer of the Year Award
ROCHESTER, N.Y. —For the third consecutive year, based on number of vehicles sold, Auction Direct USA was named the #1 independent used vehicle retailer of the year. The national award is given out annually by Auto Dealer Monthly Magazine in conjunction with Sirius XM Satellite Radio.
Auction Direct USA’s winning margin was more than 800 vehicles. In the three straight years that Auction Direct USA has won the Independent Dealer of the Year award they have sold in excess of 20,000 used cars, SUVs and trucks. The award is open to any independent dealership that is not and has never been publicly held. Rankings were based on pre-owned retail sales for the 2011 calendar year.
“The entire team at Auction Direct USA is thrilled to win this award for the third year in a row,” said John Iannone, Chief Executive Officer at Auction Direct. “We attribute much of our success to our sales philosophy of always giving customers the best possible experience and the best possible price for a used car. We believe this ideal really resonates with buyers who are looking for trustworthy advice from no-pressure, non-commission sales staff, and who ultimately just want a fun and enjoyable car-buying experience.”
The company currently operates four Used Car Superstores in Victor, N.Y., Buffalo, N.Y., Raleigh, N.C., and Jacksonville, Fla., and plans to continue to grow their market reach to meet the need for quality service and products at low competitive pricing.
