Online auto marketplace AutoWurld is now offering a free mobile service to sell used cars. The company contends the new tool allows dealers and consumers to list used cars for sale in 60 seconds or less.
AutoWurld Mobile — available for iOS and Android — enables smartphone and tablet users to scan the vehicle VIN, import vehicle data directly from Kelley Blue Book, enter a price, add images, and list their car.
After those five steps are taken, each vehicle is posted to AutoWurld.com as a retail and or wholesale listing.
AutoWurld is designed to centralize retail, wholesale and auction channels into one destination with no listing fees for consumers, and no transaction fees or auction fees for dealers.
Paul Dyke, general manager at El Cajon Ford, is already reaping the benefits of the tool.
"We like being part of a national network that provides wholesale and retail value to our dealership," said Dyke. "AutoWurld is constantly introducing new tools and technology to improve profitability. Every week AutoWurld has more dealers and they just launched a mobile app to give us access to consumer inventory. I would encourage any dealer, franchise or independent, to sign up and grow the network. It's quick, easy, and there is no long-term commitment required."
Back in March, MyWurld Inc. launched AutoWurld as a new 24-7 subscription-based wholesale network and national online auto marketplace that aims to bring wholesale, retail and auction channels together.
