New Epyx feature for defleeted vehicles

Dealers can present vehicles being sold by major fleets alongside their own stock thanks to a new feature introduced recently.

Called Dealer Showroom, it is designed to be used when a consumer has approached a dealer looking for a specific car, van or truck and a matching vehicle is available on epyx’s 1link Trade Buyer platform.

The vehicle details are made available to the dealer in a white label format with detailed photographs and a full description, allowing them to add branding and pricing. This can then be sent to the buyer digitally.

Tim Meadows, Chief Commercial Officer at epyx, said: “This is a really useful way for dealers to extend their stock reach. We have around 1,200 vehicles available on 1link Trade Buyer at any one time so, if a potential buyer has particular needs, there is a good chance that something suitable will be available.

“The retailer can present that vehicle to the customer alongside their own stock, which it effectively becomes. If they want to go ahead, it can be bought and delivered to the showroom, often in ready-to-retail condition in a matter of days.

“We believe that this is a really effective tool for proactive dealers and the response from users of 1link Trade Buyer has been enthusiastic. They can very much appreciate how it can be used to drive sales.”

Launched in 2020, the 1link Trade Buyer platform provides more than 3,500 dealers and other traders to buy cars, vans and trucks direct from a wide range of major vehicle fleet operators.
