Buy the right stock for retail from multiple sources. Sell direct to the trade with no fees.

What is Autotrade-mail?

Autotrade-mail is the UK’s largest online used car trading platform, allowing customers to buy from multiple sources and dispose of unwanted part-ex’s or aging vehicles to other like-minded traders. With good quality stock tough to source and disposing to auctions being costly, we want to make those experiences as easy and efficient as possible. 

How it works

Avoid costly auction fees by efficiently buying from multiple sellers including over 4,200 Autotrade-mail customers, 13 auction houses, fleets and leasing companies. Plus, receive details on the number of days advertised along with the ‘trade average’ price on more than 440,000 trade and private adverts on

When selling, rather than sending your unwanted part-ex’s and overage stock to auction, test the demand for your vehicles first on Autotrade-mail, to dispose of vehicles direct to other traders. Remove your uncertainty, risk and cost of selling at auction, while potentially keeping your options open for retail money.

Sell your overage stock using 'Test the Trade'

‘Test the Trade’ by keeping your stock advertised to consumers on, whilst also testing the demand from other trade retailers on Autotrade-mail at the same time – with no selling fees. You could potentially sell quickly to trade, whilst keeping the vehicle available to the retail market – the best of both worlds. You don’t even need to create an ad, as it’s automatically generated from your existing retail advert. Simply set a price that’s interesting to other traders and hit confirm. Quick, easy and effective.
