The car trade in Germany lives on two different forms of sales. The sale to private individuals and the sale to other dealers. The latter is called B2B car trade. The B2B offer goes from physical auctions to digital and is constantly expanding. 

In B2B car trading, exclusively people with a registered trade in the automotive industry are allowed. With the increasing number of digital platforms for B2B car trading, the choice and flexibility is also increasing. Previously, the normal way to buy or sell used cars was restricted locally. This restriction is now obsolete. But B2B car trading also poses challenges. In order to effectively participate in auctions here, the first thing to do is to thoroughly compare the different suppliers. The second challenge in B2B car trading on the Internet is that the vehicles cannot be inspected in person. Here you should look at what effort the auction platform makes to ensure that the listings are complete and truthful. At CarOnSale we have our own evaluators who go to the dealerships and record the vehicles by condition report. If you also want to participate in B2B car trading, then simply and quickly register with CarOnSale and expand your sources for used cars.

  • Trade from dealer to dealer is also called B2B
  • When trading from dealer to dealer there is no warranty claim
  • That's why you should also pay attention to vehicle valuations
