Columbus Fair Auto Auction (CFAA) notes that dealers can take up to seven days to prepare vehicles purchased at auction for placement on their front line. A new CFAA service aims to save time by offering mechanic, reconditioning, body shop, and transportation services for a single flat rate.
Under CFAA’s Frontline Ready service initiative, which will be available in the first quarter of this year, units will be made “frontline ready” in 48 hours, which CFAA says will save buyers resources and accelerate time-to-market.
The FLR service is available to any dealership, not just those who make purchases at the auction.
Greg Levi, president of Columbus Fair Auto Auction — a family-owned auction founded in 1959 — said in a news release that the auction created the new service under the coordination of its shop managers to help its buyers and local dealerships.
“By utilizing this service, dealers will be able to move their units from our campus directly to their lots prepared for immediate sale,” Levi said.
