By partnering with E-Drive Autos, dealers have a more efficient way to market their wholesale vehicles any time on any day, while they are still on the lot. Furthermore, E-Drive Autos’ dealer-partners can leverage both wholesale and retail marketing channels simultaneously, thus maximizing their alternatives and their chances of a quick sale, while reducing costs associated with physical auctions.
E-Drive Autos is the only service of its kind marketing vehicles that are destined for dealer auction directly to consumers. Up until the auction date, the vehicles are advertised at little or no markup on the E-Drive website. Consumers, through a paid annual membership program (think Costco), have access to thousands of wholesale-priced vehicles for sale. “E-Drive car buyers have skin in the game, so to speak, and since we don’t take a percentage of the transaction, all profits from the sale of the vehicle itself and the sale of value-added services go directly to our dealer partners”, states E-Drive Autos CEO, Derek White. “We target savvy car buyers that are ready, willing and able to purchase these vehicles under a no-haggle mindset. In turn, dealers have a seamless way to wholesale their aged, pre-owned inventory to a vast market of retail buyers – many with a check in hand” he adds.
Getting inventory listed on E-Drive Autos is fast and easy. Dealers can simply add E-Drive Autos to their daily vehicle data feed provided by their inventory management software. For dealers that do not use IMS/DMS software, E-Drive can provide a cost-effective solution through its E-Z Dealership platform.
