ADESA, a business unit of global wholesale used vehicle digital marketplace operator KAR Global , announced Feb. 1 it will provide more comprehensive condition reports across the U.S. and Canada that allow dealers to make more informed and faster buying decisions.
Highlights of the enhanced condition report include an improved photo gallery with a separate damages section, easier to find tire condition and vehicle options. The most commonly referenced information is featured at the top of the page, including vehicle summary, bid details and images. The phased roll out is anticipated to complete later this year.
“Our new condition report displays key information in an easy to digest format, reducing the time it takes to make a decision on the vehicle while empowering dealers to buy with confidence,” said John Hammer, chief commercial officer of KAR Global and president of ADESA, in a news release. “Buyers consistently ask for fast access to the information that matters most to them, including things like damages, tire condition and announcement information. So, we are thrilled to evolve our condition reports to a more digestible format that better meets their needs.”
Evolving the most technologically advanced sourcing and wholesale platform remains a key focal point for ADESA and KAR’s digital marketplace businesses. In addition to the new condition reports, ADESA has recently rolled out several new tools for customers. These include an updated Purchases Page providing a more streamlined checkout process and ADESA Assurance, reducing risk and providing peace of mind when buying.
