EDealer and EBlock announced that they will waive all contract, set-up and transactional costs associated with touchless trade-in solution, Guaranteed Trade, for all dealers in Canada until August 2020.
Guaranteed Trade is a touchless trade-in solution that gives consumers the ability to self-capture and submit their trades to the dealer from the safety of their own driveway. The easy-to-use app guides consumers through a full walk around process that provides the dealer with a full condition report including the VIN and damage photos.
The announcement comes as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic that has impacted the automotive industry worldwide.
“Despite the downturn in car sales, we’ve seen a huge spike in trades being self-captured by consumers. Since visiting showrooms is no longer an option, Guaranteed Trade can help dealers properly assess trade-ins while keeping everyone safe,” said Jason McClenahan, CEO of EDealer and EBlock. “The trades can also be pushed into the EBlock marketplace for a live trade appraisal prior to sending the consumer a price. The tool can adapt to just about anyone’s needs right now, which is why we’re offering Guaranteed Trade to every dealer in Canada for free.”
Guaranteed Trade’s features include:
- Canadian Black Book value range
- Guaranteed Trade capture app
- Variety of call-to-action designs that can be seamlessly added to the dealership website, including leaderboards, banners and pop-outs
