CENTREVILLE, Va., Feb. 3, 2011 — Carfax today announced it has integrated access to Carfax Auction Quick Check and Carfax Vehicle History Reports for ADESA online customers. Dealers and auction buyers using ADESA DealerBlock and ADESA LiveBlock have critical details about a vehicle’s past readily-available with a single mouse click. Furthermore, Carfax Auction Quick Check is free to buyers on DealerBlock and LiveBlock through February.
‘Carfax is a leading source of vehicle history information for the used vehicle industry,’ said Jason Ferreri, vice president of e-business sales and operations for ADESA. ‘We are pleased to partner with Carfax and offer our customers this time-saving tool that is sure to enhance their peace of mind during their online experience.’
Previous independent studies prove that using a Carfax Report improves inventory turn and increases profit. Dealers can help ensure they pay the right price for cars customers want by running a Carfax Report prior to acquisition. At retail, used car shoppers get the information needed to make faster buying decisions.
‘We’ve found that transparency at auction is a powerful asset,’ said Paul Seger, VP asset remarketing at GE Commercial Finance Fleet Services. ‘For years we’ve provided a Carfax Report with every unit we wholesale to build confidence and boost value. Giving buyers access to this information through the online auction site only helps your units stand out from the rest.’
‘The most successful buyers at auction are the ones with the best tools,’ said Dick Raines, Carfax president. ‘Together, Carfax and ADESA are making sure dealers have easy access to vehicle history details that help them choose the right cars and pay the right price.’
