One of the biggest challenges facing dealers is finding a quick way to fill their lots with high-quality, fast-turning inventory. DealerBlock Prime was developed just for that purpose.
With DealerBlock Prime, offered on ADESA.com, dealers have one-click access to the most popular makes and models of off-lease and rental vehicles before they’re offered at auction. These CPO-eligible, low-mileage vehicles were previously offered only to franchised dealers, but are now open to all licensed dealers.
DealerBlock Prime offers thousands of vehicles from top national consignors. Dealers also have access to lower buy fees, extended arbitration (when CarsArrive Network transport is selected) and the ADESA Assurance 30-day guarantee option.
Time is a luxury many car dealers don’t have, so they need an efficient way to acquire used inventory. DealerBlock Prime allows buyers to bid and buy 24 hours a day, seven days a week from the convenience of their computer or mobile device.
Numerous representatives for ADESA, KAR Auction Services and their extended family companies will speak at Used Car Week.
