EXTENDED: SMA improve service
SMA Vehicle Remarketing are extending their partnership with Vehicle Trading Group to offer dealers a wider stock funding service.
The broadening follows SMA’s vehicle stock funding facility launch earlier this year, and will be backed up with on-site stock funding offices and support across the SMA network.
It will enable dealers to fully fund vehicles covering 100% of auction sale price, including auction and delivery fees.
The upgraded service also enables dealers to fund the stock for up to 120days with no restrictions on the age or mileage of the vehicles.
To support dealers and provide a face-to-face service, an on-site funding office will be available, manned by fully-trained personnel, who can arrange and tailor an appropriate service.
The first office opens at SMA Leeds on December 1, with the rest of the network available by January 1, 2014.
Bob Anderson, Vehicle Remarketing Manager at SMA Vehicle Remarketing, said: “I think we are really making our commitment to innovation pay for our dealer customers.
“The stock funding option has proved very popular and we think we can help dealers beyond our centres right onto the forecourt with a range of options that provide them with additional choice, backing this up with face to face expertise.
“Above all, what we are showing is that we are interested in helping our dealers to succeed from stock acquisition to customer sale.”
