Emkay Launches Industry-First Maintenance History Available to Auctions and Wholesale Dealers through Internet Site
ITASCA, IL – EMKAY, Inc., a nationwide full-service fleet leasing and management company, has launched an online tool for auctions/wholesale dealers to view Web-based vehicle maintenance history.
“Our innovative technology solution is available through an Internet site for all auctions/wholesale dealers,” said Dave Nagy, Emkay VP Fleet Assets. “Vehicles on our maintenance management program display Web site stickers on the windshield along with having a preprinted hardcopy of the maintenance history attached to the vehicle at time of sale. Our new service is provided free of charge for all our customers. Industry data indicates that the sale price of a maintenance program unit will lift the sold price by over $250.”
Also, vehicles going through the auction lanes that were a part of Emkay’s maintenance program can have their entire service history shown with the click of a button. By entering a vehicle’s Vehicle Identification Number, site users/buyers can search for any vehicle and see for themselves important maintenance information that should help make the used-car buying decision easier.
Users/dealers can search vehicle auctions if they are looking for Emkay vehicles, but do not know the VIN. To view a list of all vehicle auctions, click on a dropdown menu for an alphabetical list. Users can click on the specific auction (i.e., in a given city) they would like to see. After selecting the desired auction(s) they are planning to buy from, a list of Emkay vehicles are displayed enabling the view of the maintenance history report.
