How does it work?
Trained Aston Barclay Enhanced Heroes take a short video of your new purchases highlighting areas that can be enhanced before delivery. The video is sent to you by SMS and email, along with the anticipated costs of the work. With the tap of a finger, you can choose to either accept or refuse the jobs for Aston Barclay to complete for you.
With the e-Valuate vehicle appraisal App, you can accurately appraise incoming vehicles with valuations referenced from CAP used car data or a customer’s own pricing matrix, as well as get a guaranteed purchase price from The Car Buying Group. All data captured, including inspection reports and images, is saved so that you can decide whether the vehicle is kept for retail or uploaded to a wholesale disposal channel.
The e-Xchange platform gives you the power to sell stock anytime and anywhere. By fixing the duration for which the vehicle is to be advertised for disposal, as well as set a ‘buy it now’ and a minimum reserve price, you’re in control. When the vehicle is sold, the buyer can arrange logistics and payments with you. If the vehicle is unsold, it flows into either a physical or online auction.
