Trusted Car Buyers Change The Game For UK Car Dealers

Share Article

A new generation of online car buyer has launched its unique platform, allowing dealers and dealer groups of all sizes to enter the online car buying sector, enabling them to buy directly from the public in the same way companies like and do, but without the excessive up-front investment normally required.

The next generation of online car buyer launched its platform early last month—but this isn’t just any online platform. offers dealers an instant fix, allowing them to be up and running in just seven days operating their own online car buying division. 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 is 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.

This creates a number of advantages to any dealer who is part of the Trusted Car Buyers network: they can pay more than the online car buyer who is using auction to derive a profit whilst the customer has received a better price for their car; and with Manheim investing in late last month and BCA acquiring earlier in the year, it seems this product has landed at a perfect time for dealers across the UK.

As a Trusted Car Buyers spokesperson recently put it: "Our objective here is to give the customer what they want. For us, that means offering a fair price for the customer’s car, offering help and advice to ensure they get the best possible price as well as being a trusted and valued service.

“The service is all packaged in a user-friendly website with mobile capabilities and excellent customer service. The idea is to create the next generation of online car buyers, ultimately changing the preconceptions caused by the negative activity of others in our market place.

“It is something we're all very excited about. All our dealers have criteria that need to be met before they can come onboard with us as a Trusted Car Buyer. Our decision is based on: stock levels, premises and how long they have been trading to ensure that the customer is dealing with only the most reputable and trusted sources. Above all else, every dealer is independently rated by a third-party to ensure quality of customer service across the UK.

Why Are Trusted Car Buyers Different?
Almost all large online car buyers buy vehicles to sell at trade auctions. This means that they have to purchase the vehicle at below trade auction value in order to make a profit. Trusted Car Buyers are different: they are a network of car dealers looking to replenish their own forecourt stock. This means they can pay more for the vehicle as they do not have to factor in auction fees, transportation costs and commission. Essentially, they cut out the middle men and allow the seller to sell directly to the motor dealer. The higher value offered means that the customer selling their car receives a much fairer price for their vehicle.

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 Mean For The Motor Trade?
Trusted Car Buyers makes purchasing vehicles from the public open to all dealers whereas previously this process has only been available to 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 and the speed in which stock is turned into profit.

The opportunity of becoming part of the Trusted Car Buyer Network offers an excellent return on investment as well as boosting customer confidence by becoming part of a Trusted and Reliable brand.
