The number of trade buyers using Epyx’s 1link Disposal Network platform has passed 2,000 for the first time.
Vicky Gardner, remarketing commercial manager at Epyx, said that this growth was directly linked to the availability of better quality vehicles in greater numbers through the platform and the changing preferences of buyers who want to purchase stock online.
She explained: “We are seeing use of 1link Disposal Network increase massively on a month-by-month basis and that is because we are offering exceptional, ready to retail, mainly ex-fleet stock at a significantly lower cost of acquisition than traditional auctions.
“The new traders we have seen registering to use the platform are coming from right across the board – franchise, independents and car supermarkets – and recent research we have undertaken indicated that 43% of them buy exclusively online.
“In a used car market where the accent is very much on providing traders with cars and vans that can be put straight onto their forecourt or online sales channel, we are scoring very highly.
