Manheim announced it now enables dealers to run concierge-inspected vehicles located on the dealer lot in a live, auctioneer-led Simulcast sale via the Manheim Express Concierge service. This new capability comes as Manheim’s Simulcast audience has grown significantly in 2020 due to the pandemic, Manheim said.
The Manheim Express Concierge Service is an easier and faster way for dealers to list vehicles in the Manheim Marketplace, the company said. By requesting a concierge specialist, dealers will have a trained expert on their lot to bring their listings to life with an in-depth inspection and the industry’s best condition information. All concierge-inspected vehicle listings come complete with a condition grade; audio and video tags to highlight specifics on the vehicle’s condition (including undercarriage and engine sound); 360 interior and exterior imaging; and OBD2 readings.
“This latest enhancement shows the power of the Manheim Marketplace—giving dealers a truly connected, omni-channel experience for wholesaling vehicles,” said Connie Suozzo, associate vice president, open digital and offsite, Manheim Digital Solutions. “Sellers now get greater exposure for their offsite vehicles across Manheim.com, OVE and now Simulcast, while buyers have more inventory to bid on in the sale format of their choice.”
Designed for vehicles that have been listed by a Manheim Express Concierge, the new “Manheim Express to Simulcast” capability delivers a more fully connected client experience that benefits both buyers and sellers.
With the service, sellers can get more exposure for their inventory by getting vehicles on their lots in front of one of the world’s largest wholesale buying audiences, Manheim said. Buyers can also get access to even more inventory during live Simulcast sales.
