There has been a cultural shift for consumers to research and shop for vehicles online, which means dealers are continually searching for cost effective ways to showcase their inventory. To address this challenge, Experian announced at the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Show 2020, an exclusive relationship with CarZing, the innovative online vehicle shopping portal. As part of the strategic alliance, dealerships with AutoCheck subscriptions can now list their inventory on CarZing.com and AutoCheck.com for no additional fees.
“We are committed to helping dealers streamline their processes and sell more vehicles,” John Gray, Experian’s president of automotive, North America, said. “Through our collaboration with CarZing, dealers can increase exposure of their inventory at no additional charge, while simultaneously making it easier for consumers to find the vehicle they want. Additionally, with AutoCheck reports included in the listings, consumers are assured of a more transparent transaction, and can feel more confident in their vehicle choice.”
Consumers using the CarZing customer portal will be able to access AutoCheck vehicle history reports to better understand and compare vehicles directly through the website. This includes information related to reported accidents, odometer readings, any open recalls, and if the vehicle qualifies for buyback protection.
Experian’s AutoCheck vehicle history report is the industrial-strength report that is used daily by dealers and consumers to better understand a vehicle’s history and make informed vehicle purchases. Additionally, with the proprietary AutoCheck Score, dealers and consumers alike are able to quickly understand the likelihood that a vehicle will be on the road in five years.
“We’re thrilled to be collaborating with Experian, as it furthers our mission to provide a hassle-free shopping experience for consumers,” Barry Lane, CarZing’s vice president of business development, said. “We believe this has huge benefits for both dealer and consumers.”
