Xpert Auction Software

Xpert Automotive Auctions

Over the last 12 years of my working with NorCalCars.com I’ve worked with quite a few of the automotive dealers in the Redding area down to Sacramento. I’ve always found it interesting to talk with them about where they get their inventory. Some work with the larger new car dealers buying their trade-ins but for many the best way is to buy the cars at large auctions, some of which are open to the public, others not. Buying at the auctions meant heading down to auction yard, often in Sacramento or the bay area and bidding on vehicles. However, some of the dealers I worked with managed to get their lot stocked while sitting in the comfort of their own office using online auctions.

Every week when I would come by to update one dealer’s inventory on NorCalCars.com he would be sitting at his desk placing bids on various vehicles on a online automotive auction website. This got me to wondering why more of the dealers didn’t do the same. It came down to it that the reason was that most of the auction companies didn’t have the software necessary to do online auctions. This made sense in a way, at the time good auction software just wasn’t available and creating your own custom software is a very expensive proposition. Thousands of hours of research and development can go into creating a high quality auction software, add to that the skills necessary to to manage the servers and keep the database optimized for quick response means that most auction yards simply don’t have the time and resources to run online auctions.

Xpert Automotive Auction

This leads me to today’s web-post “Xpert Automotive Auctions“. While auctions may not be for every automotive dealer many do have the inventory necessary to start holding auctions and Xpert Auction Software can be the answer to the high cost of development and hosting of your own software. (more…)

Towing an electric vehicle behind your motor home for use while staying in an area is becoming more and more popular. Electric Vehicles are often seen as a way reduce your foot print when using motor homes for traveling.
