Dealers are being offered a new tool to overcome the current shortage of quality used car stock.
HPI iCar Trade is a new website highlighting vehicles from contract hire, leasing companies, rental and vehicle replacement companies in the UK.
Dealers are provided access to vehicles for their forecourt or as virtual stock. HPI iCar Trade can be used in the showroom with a customer where a joint search can be carried out online.
Cars available can be bought “sold as described” or can be purchased refurbished to BVRLA fair wear and tear (FWT) standard.
Stock is sourced from a range of brands focussing on vehicles from six months to five years old, with varying mileages, giving dealers access to hundreds of cars from a variety of vendors.
HPI says it is already seeing consistently over 500 cars in stock each day.
Dealers can register free at www.hpiicartrade.com or by calling 0845 300 8901.
Daniel Burgess, HPI managing director, said: “HPI iCar Trade supports dealers by reducing stocking costs and increasing the variety of stock available. With access to a greater choice of cars, dealers can enhance customer satisfaction, whether they visit the showroom in person or make an email or telephone enquiry.”
“Our platform offers dealers a unique service, which includes logistical assistance, as well as valuable re-marketing intelligence.”
