Nowadays, there are several ways for used car dealers to buy and sell vehicles. Especially online auctions for used car dealers are now widespread. The selection of used cars is huge and is extended by the customs union by offers from all over Europe. Also for sale online platforms offer many interested buyers. This also poses dangers, due to the large number of providers of car auctions in Europe, it is difficult to get accurate information about all of them. For used car dealers, it is especially important to note that each auction platform has a different pricing model, which, if not fully transparent, can lead to hidden costs.
