Cradle to grave service on line

A NEW internet company, Auto Online, has launched a new product claiming to offer a 'cradle to grave' service for fleets wanting to sell vehicles on-line. The firm says the system, tailored for the automotive trade, will slash disposal costs by up to 50% and cut the time it takes to sell a vehicle.

The system was specifically designed with dealers and fleet managers in mind and is aimed at the used car market for vehicles which are less than four years old. Auto Online offers a 'no success, no fee' scheme, while both buyer and seller are charged between £95 and £105 per sale. Training and support facilities for companies using the system are provided from the firm's headquarters in Letchworth, Hertfordshire.

Managing director Kamal Bengougam, claims the system is more than a simple means of generating leads via the internet. Independent inspections are carried out on each vehicle and cannot be altered by the seller, while RAC inspections to approve the quality of the vehicle are also available. Once a sale is complete, Auto Online can also arrange for vehicles to be transported to the buyer's premises.
