Our 2009 report “Best Practice in Fleet Remarketing” threw up some interesting results, not only for us, but for the whole remarketing sector. It found evidence of an industry focus on a single channel route to market, and that when it came to evaluating performance the measurements in place left some room for improvement. However, the leading players in the industry recognised that there was a need for change. The report suggested people wanted better management information; greater certainty of sale and, in a large number of cases, a remarketing partner who could act as an agent on their behalf.
And that’s where we come in.
How grs can help.
At grs we have over 15 years experience in the remarketing sector in the UK. In fact, we pioneered it!
And because of that, we’re perfectly placed to act upon your behalf. We’ll use our extensive expertise and network to sell your de-fleeted vehicles on a fee basis. This option gives you the benefit of our longstanding association with the UK motor industry. Our unique and highly experienced sales team has built strong relationships across a wide network of independent and franchised motor retailers. Our database, built on 15 years experience, and constantly maintained and refreshed, comprises over 12,000 motor retailers – all of whom we have regular contact with. We also offer a number of different sales channels, any or all of which can be used – including an electronic auction site.
And our proposition to retailers keeps getting stronger.
We’ve added a purpose-built photographic suite at our state-of-the-art vehicle inspection and refurbishment centre at Cold Meece, near Stafford. This new resource includes high quality digital camera equipment and a 360 degree turntable and will help us maximise the value of your vehicles and speed the sales process.
Continuing investment of this kind is one of the reasons why more and more retailers are approaching us to help them source stock which will be worthy of their forecourts. Our market-leading imagery gives purchasers the confidence and assurance they need to buy their vehicles.
Accurate and consistent measures of success are key management data in any industry. And remarketing is no different. Our report suggested that nearly a quarter of the decision makers we spoke to have no pre-defined measures for their teams. At grs, we don’t work that way. We’ll make sure we work closely with you to define exactly the information you require. Whether it’s Days to Sale or Performance against the Market, we’ll produce management reports containing the agreed Key Performance Indicators that will enable you to see all aspects of the service provided and to understand whether we’re delivering on our promise to you.
Welcome to the easy way.
