“Confidence is key”
It is safe to say when fleet and finance companies need to liquidate vehicles they tend to overlook many auction businesses and migrate towards the large established vehicle auction businesses. They have end to end processes in place, are aggressively priced, and their solutions are solely geared around vehicle remarketing.
Clients often assume vehicle sales performance will be weaker at smaller non vehicle specialised auctions, impacted by a smaller vehicle buyer base, higher buyers fees and a weaker sales proposition. Vehicles are often consigned as part of larger disposal or liquidation processes.
With the continual evolution of on-line auctions it is evident that vehicle buyers have more confidence, and therefore willing to pay more money for trusted and comprehensive lot descriptions, including detailed appraisals. This in turn increases revenues for vendors and auction companies. If auctions are not vehicle specific they have choices. 1) do nothing, accepting their current proposition 2) invest in resources, software and hardware that can bring a solution to market, or 3) use an independent inspection and collection business to support, allowing them to bring a more viable solution and compete with the industry giants.
