Autorola has been appointed by Renault UK to support its national dealer network in buying and selling used Renault vehicles and unwanted, part-exchange stock.
The partnership will allow Renault UK’s 160 dealers to trade stock between each other, searching for used Renault cars that will help to replenish used stock back into dealerships, while also making its used vehicles available to more than 2,000 active buyers.
Used stock can be uploaded to Autorola’s online remarketing portal, Autofind, by the dealers to view and buy.
Renault UK has approximately 15,000 used cars in its network, including a selection of electric and traditionally-fuelled cars and MPVs under the Approved Used Renault banner, which offer a 12-month warranty as standard on all vehicles.
Matt Downing, TCO and remarketing manager at Renault UK, said: “Our partnership with Autorola gives our national network of used dealers improved access to used vehicles both internally and externally, while helping them to quickly sell unwanted stock to the trade.
“The Autofind online portal provides complete peace of mind for our dealers, who can focus solely on selling used cars to the widest possible retail audience, while maximising profitability through reduced stocking days and improving vehicle turnover.”
Jon Mitchell, group sales director at Autorola UK, added: “Demand for Renault’s used range has always been high with buyers on our portal; the early reaction from Renault dealers to buying and selling has been positive."
