Online used vehicle marketplace CarsVansandBikes (CVB) has announced a partnership with The Sun’s automotive arm Sun Motors. Sun Motors delivers the latest news, reveals and reviews from the world of motoring, and has grown over the past 12 months to an average of eight million monthly views and five million monthly visitors.
The partnership will see readers of Sun Motors offered the opportunity to obtain a free valuation for their Car, Van or Motorbike on a co-branded page of CVB’s website. Readers can then list their vehicle with CVB’s network of approved dealers who can bid to buy it at a pre-agreed target price.
The Sun launched the partnership with an article on Sun Motors, and will be promoting the partnership with three editorial features, print ads and The Sun’s social media pages to drive awareness of CVB to its audience of almost 30m monthly visitors.
For the first time in the UK, car dealers can participate in the full customer journey via the CVB buying and selling platforms at www.carsvansandbikes.com. Car dealers can replenish their stock using the CVB auction platform, and then list vehicles for sale on the main CVB website.
CVB puts more money in dealers’ pockets and provides dealers the flexibility to offer better deals to the consumer. Its low overhead model provides a more cost-effective solution for car dealers. We have a vision to be a dealer champion in an ever-changing industry.
Ken Geddes, CEO of CVB comments: “This is a gamechanger for the automotive industry. CarsVansandBikes is created to help both vehicle owners and dealers to obtain the best deal. Vehicle owners can sell their car, van or motorbike completely free of charge, and dealers pay the lowest auction fees thereby allowing an increased bid to the vehicle owner. The Sun is the most popular newsbrand in the UK, so it is the perfect partner to promote CarsVansandBikes.”
Paul Hood, Director of Business Development for The Sun, says: “Sun Motors has seen tremendous audience growth on theSun.co.uk over the past 18 months, so we’re delighted to expand it further to connect our readers with the CarsVansandBikes platform. This partnership brings a quick and simple way for our readers to get a free valuation for their current car or van, and easily browse thousands of quality used cars to find their next one.”
