Aston Barclay recently launched their new e-Xchange wholesale digital used car trading platform. This will allow vendors to sell off their excess stock and inventory at any time they wish.
Car and van vendors have already signed up to e-Xchange including; north western-based dealer group Lindop Toyota, Essex-based Quest Motor Group, west midlands-based multi-franchise group Greenhous and Imperial Commercials, one of the UK’s largest independent commercial dealer group. Daimler is also using the service for its ex-lease vehicles as well as The Car Buying Group.
E-Xchange offers vendors a choice between List Only, whereby the transaction is concluded between them and the buyer, or List and Collect where vehicles advertised are collected by Aston Barclay’s national logistics team. They are held at an Aston Barclay center and the transaction fully managed by the company’s new Digital Solutions team headed up by Digital Strategy Director Daren Wiseman.
Unsold vehicles automatically cascade into pre-agreed physical or e-Live sales, creating a unique end-to-end digital journey complimented by physical fulfillment across a leading network of hubs.
E-Xchange is an integral part of Aston Barclay’s digital transformation connecting customers to cars through Cascade, using a mix of digital and physical remarketing channels.
Glyn Davies, Managing Director of Lindop Toyota said: “We like the fact we can sell stock anytime and from anywhere.
“All we do is upload the vehicle onto the e-Xchange platform with images, our preference on timings and our reserves and then the platform does the rest.
