Renault UK has appointed Autorola as its official remarketing provider as part of a deal which will facilitate trader-to-trader trading within the 160-strong network.
Autorola will help dealers search and trade stock between each other while also making its used vehicles available to over 2,000 active buyers via its online remarketing portal, Autofind.
Renault UK currently has approximately 15,000 used cars in its network, including a comprehensive selection under the Approved Used Renault banner, which offer a 12 month warranty as standard on all vehicles.
Matt Downing, Renault UK’s TCO and remarketing manager, said: “Our partnership with Autorola gives our national network of used dealers improved access to used vehicles both internally and externally, while helping them to quickly sell unwanted stock to the trade.
“The Autofind online portal provides complete peace of mind for our dealers, who can focus solely on selling used cars to the widest possible retail audience, while maximising profitability through reduced stocking days and improving vehicle turnover.”
Jon Mitchell, Autorola UK’s group sales director, added: “Demand for Renault’s used range has always been high with buyers on our portal; the early reaction from Renault dealers to buying and selling has been positive. We look forward to helping the Renault dealer network maximise efficiency and achieve further growth in their used car businesses.”
