Motorway provides free vehicle collection amidst record online car sales

Motorway's new ‘Pro’ used car stocking platform

Motorway is providing free vehicle collection worth up to £500 for dealers joining its online used car stocking platform.

The online stocking and used car auctions portal sai dthat the offer had been made to celebrate its achievment of reaching the milestone of completing £1.6m in daily sales.

Motorway’s free transport offer is open to all new dealers who sign up in August and is valid for all vehicles purchased through the platform until the end of the month.

In June, Motorway celebrated a record £1.39m used car sales in a single day

James Bush, sales director at Motorway, said: “Thanks to thousands of car sellers coming to Motorway every day to sell their car from the comfort and safety of their home since lockdown restrictions were eased, we’ve been well placed to supply car dealers with all the quality stock they need.

“As a result, Motorway has seen record sales of as much as £1.6m of stock a day, almost a third higher than our previous peak just before lockdown. And we’ve made it even safer for our dealers with the launch of our no-contact transport service that puts safety first – providing easy inspection, collection and delivery of cars to dealers in a fast and cost-effective way.”

Motorway says its transport service is contact free at every stage to ensure it can ensure a safe transaction for both sellers and buyers.

Bush said: “We know many dealers are reluctant to drive to auctions at the moment and are now sourcing more stock online than ever before. As a 100% online service, we are well placed to help, supporting dealers with amazing stock and seamless delivery.

“Since launching our no-contact transport service in May, we’ve had incredible feedback from dealers that have found it a great way to help them transition to making daily online stock purchases, whilst keeping them safe.

“We’re confident that our new, free transport offer will encourage more dealers to sign up to our platform and get the quality stock they need, delivered safely to their door.”
