AUTO1 Price Indicator wins 2021 Car Remarketing Award from Fleet Europe

Berlin, 11 November 2021

Berlin, 11.11.2021 - AUTO1.com, Europe's largest wholesale platform for used cars, won the 2021 Car Remarketing Award of Fleet Europe with its truly innovative AUTO1 Price Indicator tool on November 9th. The game-changing AUTO1 Price Indicator supports our remarketing partners in determining the price of the car they want to sell within just five minutes. Together with the AUTO1 EVA app for the inspection of used cars, AUTO1.com fully covers the digital value chain of used cars. The AUTO1 Price Indicator tool strongly increased the conversion rate and enabled the AUTO1 Group to source significantly more cars.

The AUTO1 Price Indicator increases the efficiency of remarketing processes by offering car sellers the opportunity to get a price estimation of their cars, like trade-ins, within five minutes via our smartphone app or website.

The essential vehicle data, including the equipment details, are automatically imported by entering the vehicle identification number (VIN). If available, sellers can also upload damage reports and photos using simple drag & drop. Then, the seller can request a price for each trade-in via the AUTO1.com website or AUTO1 EVA App with just a click. Once car sellers get their price estimations, they can choose to finish the car evaluation and put their car on auction on our platform where over 60,000 buyers across 30 countries bid on it in real-time. Thanks to its wide European reach, AUTO1.com can offer market-leading prices for sellers. The AUTO1 Price Indicator allows the seller to configure a trade-in margin, which can be deducted in advance and the sales agents can directly present the final price to the consumer.

The price is based on the current market situation, real-time bidding behavior in 30 countries, as well as data from more than 2,5 million cars sold Europe-wide by AUTO1.com. AUTO1 Group is by far the largest trading platform in Europe.

This process allows car sellers to reduce their inventory days by selling their cars within 24 hours and creates an advantage in residual value positioning. For fleet companies, the AUTO1 Price Indicator is a faithful ally in understanding better when to renew their fleet, based on the market value of their cars. Fleet owners can defleet cars more flexibly based on the prices instead of sticking to static holding patterns.

“I am very proud of all the different teams that worked on this product. Also, it makes me happy that our partners love this tool and optimize their used car business on a daily basis. With the AUTO1 Price Indicator, car dealers turn potential trade-ins into actual transactions. At first, trade-ins are capital-intensive and involve a stock risk. With AUTO1.com car dealers make faster purchase decisions and optimize their trade-in strategy. Additionally, fleet managers increase the efficiency of the defleeting process and optimize the sale price for cars due to choosing the optimal time to defleet.", says Jost Dieckhaus, VP Remarketing Europe at AUTO1 Group.

The Price Indicator is free and is currently available in 13 markets: Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, and Poland.
