Used Cars Remarketing
NATURE OF SERVICE
A groupe of cars dealers is having an unprepared fleet of used vehicles. The final customer could buy a vehicle before its reconditioning, resulting in:
- Difficulty in selling an unprepared vehicle. Sometimes the sale would be pushed by promises of repairs that the group could not keep (new tires, paintings etc.)
- Disappointment upon receipt by the final customer
The vehicle’s renewal must be adapted to the end-customer budget estimated average (vehicle repair costs’ management).
- Repair damaged vehicles (reconditioning) in a limited amount of time (lead time respect) to make them available for sale.
- Offer a “ready to go” vehicle – a vehicle that is ready to be presented and sold to the final customer.
- Vehicle’s reception and exterior washing
- Mechanical expertise with dynamic test / Esthetic expertise (sheet metal rework, painting, upholstery and saddlery)
- Descriptive quotations delivered to the customer / Order and receipt of parts

- Consistent reconditioning
- Outsourcing the reconditioning of used vehicle enables the group’s workshop teams to focus on tasks with higher added value, as repairing private vehicles.
- Used vehicles are now addressed in an industrial process, and no longer resolved as a variable by the workshop (overloaded) or as a reaction (the vehicle is sold, therefore it must be prepared) but as a real industrial process. In this sense, all used vehicles are reconditioned in short deadlines before being presented to potential buyers already ready to go.
