We've created ten new sales roles in 2021 (to-date), including five internal promotions, to keep up with the robust demand for used cars and motor finance.

It has been a long while since exciting events like Automotive Management Live (AM Live) have been on the agenda for V12VF.

On Tuesday 9th November, V12VF's Head of Partnerships, Tamara Brown and Regional Account Manager, Sarah Devine had a mellow time celebrating Shoreham's 60th birthday in groovy 60s style.

On a cold chilly Tuesday evening Paul Kearns our Regional Account Manager attended Wilsons Auctions Oxford, where there were 150 entries of which 125 sold.  Steve Carter, General Manager was really happy with both the attendance and the volume of cars sold.

Used car dealers are now operating in a market starved of stock. The gap between supply and demand means that highly sought-after vehicles are becoming harder to source, more expensive to purchase and come with higher mileage and age than what would be considered the norm.

But, if the used car success is to continue, dealers need to be prepared and flexible in their finance options so that they can grab opportunities when they come their way.

Motor Trader reached out to V12VF to find out how dealers are responding, what trends are apparent in the sector, and how they feel the rest of the year will pan out.
