ATLANTA – Manheim is “bringing the auction” to the dealers with a new online sales promotion that makes it easier than ever before to list vehicles on OVE.com and sell online to the industry’s largest collection of buyers. The program began Sept. 1 and will run through Nov. 1. It allows used car dealers* to list inventory from their lots through OVE.com and earn valuable rebates. The more cars sold, the bigger the rebate. Click here for more information about the promotion.
Manheim will list the vehicles on OVE.com with condition reports, provide marketing support and handle the post-sale process, simplifying the sales process for dealers. This promotion gives selling dealers the opportunity to put their pre-owned inventory in front of thousands of buyers and tap into new markets while the vehicle is still on their lot.
“We want dealers to know that selling inventory from their lots through OVE.com can pay off in a big way, and we’re not just talking about the rebates during this promotion,” said Joe George, group vice president of Manheim Digital. “By selling inventory directly from their lots via OVE.com, dealers can sell vehicles earlier and make more money, dramatically reducing overall remarketing costs. A number of our dealers already have been taking advantage of this service; and for them, this promotion serves as a reward for their continued online business.”
To help dealers take full advantage of this limited-time promotion, The Wholesale Institute is hosting two free educational webinars on Sept. 14 and 15. During a one-hour session, dealers can learn more about the valuable benefits of selling from their lots, how to request listing services and the post-sale processes. Dealers can register online at http://twi.manheimresources.
“This promotion and the free educational webinars are part of our ongoing commitment to develop new digital programs, products and services to help satisfy customers’ desires to do business on-demand,” said George. “By bringing the auction to our dealers’ lots, we are making the sales process easier and more efficient for dealers so they can focus on the success of their businesses.”
