Record Breaking First Year for Auction Direct USA
October 02, 2006 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) VICTOR, NY (October 2, 2006) – One year ago, Auction Direct USA opened a large, attractive location on Route 96, just five mile east of Eastview Mall. Their promise was simple on; we’ve got the lowest prices for used vehicles anywhere in the area – and you’ll experience an extraordinary level of service before, during and after the sale. The results are now in for year one: Auction Direct USA has sold more than 1500 used vehicles!
John Iannone, CEO of the startup is not surprised by the success. “We send our professional buyers to most of the east’s big auto auctions,” he explains, “so we’re able to select and bid for only the best vehicles. Then we sell them to customers for our low auction reserve price plus $399 – and buyers can save thousands over the Kelley Blue Book prices or what other dealers are asking for the same make, model and year.”
There’s no haggling at Auction Direct USA. The price on the window sticker is the price the customer pays. Like Iannone, Todd Hoagey, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, has spent many years in the retail auto business. “Typically our vehicles are $2000 to $5000 less than traditional dealers’ asking prices,” Hoagey says, “and our low prices are flat-out-no-haggle-numbers.
Has the Internet made a difference? Iannone answers: “We have a first-rate website that displays every vehicle in inventory, along with the price and 30 pictures of each vehicle – so the customer can zoom in for a close inspection while still at home or in the office.” Iannone believes the web is changing everything. “Thanks to the Internet, he says, today’s shopper’s can walk in with a wealth of information about the car they want. And they’re the customers we like the best; because they recognize a good deal when they see it.”
The company’s website at www.AuctionDirectUSA.com shows more than 250 vehicles in stock this week. Or, used-car shoppers can drive out to 6520 State Rd. [Rt. 96] in Victor and see them up close. They’ll also learn about a full array of financing options, the three-day, 500-mile money-back guarantee and extended warranties available.
Iannone and Hoagey are not resting on their laurels. Before the end of the year they will have opened a 2nd location in the US. This will be followed shortly with a 3rd location. “By our second anniversary,” predicts Iannone, “we will have sold 4000 previously owned vehicles. And that’s a lot of happy customers!”
