Overage stock? 

You are probably losing money.

Do you know that the cost of stocking vehicles on your forecourt is at least £6 per car per day? Therefore, a vehicle advertised for 90 days could have already cost you at least £540 - not considering depreciation and all the other associated costs! That means you need to sell fast, before your stock begins to eat away your profits.

Shift your overage stock by inviting offers from the trade. 

Stuck with a vehicle after 90 days? If you've tried everything and still can’t sell, it's time to test the response of the trade market.
