The car trade in Germany thrives on two different forms of sale. The sale to private individuals and the sale to other dealers. The second is called B2B trade. The B2B offer goes from physical auctions to digital and is constantly expanding. Auctions for dealers are exclusive to those with a registered trade in the automotive industry. With the increasing number of digital platforms for auctions for dealers, the choice and flexibility is also increasing. Previously, the normal way was limited locally. This restriction is now obsolete. But an auction for dealers also poses challenges. In order to participate effectively in auctions here, first of all, the various providers should be thoroughly compared with each other. The second challenge in a dealer auction 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 an auction for dealers, then simply and quickly sign up for CarOnSale and expand your source for used cars.
