Vehicle Remarketing's coverage on Manheim, this year's hurricane, off-lease units, and mobile technology were some of the most well-read stories on the site in 2018.
This year followed a year where two hurricanes had a large effect on the remarketing industry. While this year's hurricane had a much smaller effect on the industry, readers still wanted to know about the impact it did have, and what some auctions were doing to prepare for the storm.
Two other trends that were top of mind in 2018 were the influx of off-lease units returning to market and a bigger shift into online auctions.
