New Used car Website Has Wheels and is Screeching Out the Door

Vehicletext.com a UK based fast growing used car advertising service, for both new and used cars. They have simplified every detail of buying and selling a car.

Thousands of buyers are using this service to purchase or sell vehicles, ranging from Alfa Romeos to Used Volvos. If you have a car to sell, regardless of make and model, you could join the thousands that are already reaping the benefits for as little as 10 pounds. 10 pounds is all it takes to list your vehicle for a period of 2 weeks.

The creator of this site experienced great personal difficulty when trying to sell the car of a family member, and has used the advantages and disadvantages experienced, to create a site that makes selling a car as easy as possible.

“Not to long ago my mother wanted to sell her car so I decided to help her as I thought that this would be a simple task. How wrong I was! I decided to do some research as to where I could list it and how much it would cost. It turned out to be a very expensive and time consuming process. I placed a few adverts online and in the local paper. It ended up costing me a small fortune and placing an advert was a tricky process.”

Recent users of this site have claimed that it provided them with an effective solution, especially as a lot of them have also had bad experiences in the past. Vehicletext.com provided them with an easy and efficient solution without any stress or unnecessary worry.

Chief Executive of The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) in the UK stated in May, 2009, that, ‘buying a second hand car is a major and potentially difficult purchase, given the fact that many consumers lack the necessary experience or knowledge to make an informed buying decision’. Sites like Vehicletext.com recognise these difficulties faced by the consumer and provide as many details as possible to alleviate these concerns.

A Vehicle Text Spoke person said:

Queries are important and the dedicated customer service team at Vehicletext.com take your queries seriously. Any possible question you may have regarding a car sale or purchase will be answered thoroughly.

It has been said that the comprehensive customer support team can even handle the most difficult of queries.

You will find this competitive site packed with quality features such as ‘real’ images, descriptions, car buying advice, finance options and insurance. This website is not just for personal sales and purchases, as dealerships can also take advantage of the web presence to expand their businesses further.

Introducing an Online Cheaper and Easier Way to Sell and Buy Vehicles

Buying and selling used cars just got easier. Gone are the days when people had to rely on the print medium to place their advertisements and wait endlessly for potential customers to turn up. Moreover, they were still not guaranteed about the genuineness of the customer and could end up wasting a lot of time with such casual visitors.

At Vehicle Text, they can place advertisements for buying or selling cars online for a period of two weeks at just £10. The car advertised for sale gets the benefit of exposure to many thousands of potential buyers. All that is required to be done is to post the make, model, mileage covered, color and other such essential details of the car on the site and wait for the potential buyer to make the contact. It makes the entire process transparent and seamless without any middlemen involvement and that is advantageous to both the parties.

Similarly it is very convenient to look for a car to purchase. The site has an easy to use search facility that will throw up results based on price, area and the model sought. The seller can then be contacted directly to negotiate prices. One great advantage of buying through Vehicle Text is the warranty that accompanies the purchase making it possible for a buyer to take the vehicle back to the dealer in case of any malfunction. That is a departure from purchases at auction sites where there is no warranty provided.

The registration process is a simple one where the member is just required to provide some basic information such as name, email and contact number. This is a necessary step to list the vehicle on sale with the site.

The other useful features of the site include links to facilitate insurance, financing and HPI check. It would indeed be very reassuring to have the vehicle checked for its history including any previous damage, CO2 rating, inspection report and other relevant details before purchasing the vehicle.

Car enthusiasts and aficionados can pick up lot of useful information about how to care for the vehicles and look up some interesting reviews about them on the site. News about the automobile industry and other relevant articles pertaining to cars feature quite prominently and that is also likely to go down well with visitors to the site.

People who wish to buy or sell cars will thus find this initiative very beneficial for them and that in turn augurs well for the automobile industry.

The Co-Operative Accelerates Brand To Cover Motor Business

The Co-operative Group today unveiled the latest phase in the rebranding of its family of businesses – a positive change for almost 20 sites in its £250 million motor retailing operation.

The rebrand of 19 showrooms as The Co-operative Motor Group is part of The Co-operative’s £1.5 billion re-branding exercise – the largest in UK corporate history.

The dealerships, which until now, have traded under the Sunwin Motors brand, will be renamed in a move that marks their formal induction into the family of businesses, which includes food, funerals, travel, pharmacy, motors, financial services and legal services. More than two-thirds of the Group’s 5,000 outlets have been rebranded over the last two years.

Mike Austin, Managing Director of The Co-operative Motor Group said: “Sunwin has worked hard to establish a trusted reputation in the Midlands and North of England, and we intend to build on that by adopting The Co-operative’s strong brand.

“This is a name change only but it is the right time to make that change. The relaunch of The Co-operative brand has been a major success, and the financial performance of The Co-operative Group is stronger than ever, as is trust in our brand.”

The first of the Group’s dealerships to be rebranded will be the Renault dealership in Preston on October 27. The rebrand programme will be rolled out to the rest of the dealerships over the next (x) months.

The Co-operative Motor Group, formerly Sunwin, which represents nine major motor manufacturers (Renault, Nissan, Mazda, Peugeot, Fiat, Suzuki, Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep), has reported sales of more than £250 million for the last financial year, and in the space of just over two years it has refitted more than two-thirds of its 4,300 used cars outlets with the new look.

Black Is The UK’s Most Popular Car Colour, Says Autoquake.com

Autoquake.com has revealed that black is currently the most popular colour for used cars among shoppers with the online used car retailer. Following usability improvements to the site, visitors have been able to search for used cars by colour for almost a month and of those who used this facility the majority looked for black.

autoquake

With an average of 1000 cars for sale and 10,000 visitors per day, only slightly less than two thirds (65.9%) of searches were for a black vehicle. That’s nearly six times as many who searched for silver (11.5%), usually reckoned to be the most popular colour among second-hand car buyers.

Superstition seems to have played a part in many shoppers’ preferences. Green is often said to be an unlucky colour for a car. Just 0.09% of Autoquake.com’s used car buyers looked for a green machine.

Other colours were way down Autoquake.com buyers’ wish list. Red polled just 6.6%, only just ahead of grey on 5.7%. Blue was preferred by just 5.3% of shoppers.

One colour that used car buyers usually avoid is white, but with iPods and other upmarket consumer goods making white more fashionable nearly one in 20 shoppers searched for a white car.

It might seem like a matter of personal taste, but there’s more to choosing the colour of a car than just picking a favourite shade. It pays for buyers to choose wisely if they want to maximise the value of their car. Although second in the eyes of Autoquake.com’s website users, silver is usually reckoned to be the safest colour for solid resale values. Perhaps it’s not everyone’s favourite, but it’s smart, understated and won’t frighten many buyers off. Just as importantly, it’s not a fashionable, up-to-the-minute colour, which might look great on the driveway today but seem naff in three or four years.

Red seems to be the big loser at the moment. The searches made by Autoquake.com users reinforce other recent surveys which have shown that red is less popular than it was in the ’80s and ’90s.

The trend seems to be to move away from vivid, in-your-face colour choices to something more sober, perhaps reflecting the desire to consume less conspicuously in difficult economic times. This could also help to explain the popularity of grey, the favoured choice of more than 1-in-20 Autoquake.com users.

About Autoquake.com
