CarNet always sells vehicles via the most effective channel according to an assessment by our experts.
At the end of the contract, the vehicle is bought out of the leasing company’s books, retrieved by a partner garage and expertised by a neutral expert.
In practice, vehicles that tend to require a high level of repair go into B2B competition. Any damage is not repaired, but the vehicle is published one-to-one on the online exchanges Autrada and CarAuktion with a total of 7500 licensed dealers. The bidders on the exchanges take into account possible repair costs by reducing the value of their offer. The vehicle is sold at Best Price. This helps the customer to eliminate high-priced repair costs when taking back vehicles and to solve maximum prices.
Vehicles with lower repair costs go directly to B2C sales through our Remarketing Center at one of our partners with a corresponding guarantee.
Not to be neglected in this procedure is the consideration of the ideal running time of a vehicle. CarNet endeavours to base a vehicle on the most cost-effective running time based on annual kilometres. This ensures that the conditions negotiated when the vehicle is purchased are not cancelled out by expensive repairs at the end of the contract or a poor sales price.
We have noticed that COVID-19 has increased the demand and, accordingly, the price of used vehicles. On the one hand, the poor performance of the new car market, combined with the closure of various plants, means that hardly any new used vehicles are coming onto the market, while on the other hand, stocks of used vehicles are being reduced. In the medium term, this has an impact on demand – and thus also on the price of used vehicles.
