Why us:

Dealer Auction is a digital business transforming automotive remarketing.

We are continually evolving our digital platform to do more, from search and data tools to logistics and transaction management. We currently attract over 5500 buyers and 1200 sellers and transact over 120,000 vehicles every year.

As buying and selling moves away from traditional methods into online solutions, we’re on a mission to make buying and selling cars an easy, straight-forward process and are set to grow exponentially.
