Online survey suggests dealers are planning to maximise online sales

Just under three quarters of used car retailers surveyed by epyx are planning to use online sales to effectively reopen their business, according to the latest results.

When asked, “Are you planning to have online sales and deliveries of used cars and vans to retail buyers in place as soon as possible, now that the Government has indicated that this is permissible?” a total of 73% of respondents selected “Yes”.

Vicky Gardner, Head of Remarketing at epyx, commented: “The truth is that no-one knows the potential size of any purely online used car market during lockdown but a large number of dealers clearly see it as a potential avenue to continuing to keep their businesses running. It will be very interesting to see what develops over the coming weeks and months.”

We’re going to leave the survey open for a while and will update you with future results.
