In my role as the General Manager of the company I absolutely prefer purchasing a car through ACV Auctions. It allows me to stay on site in one of our facilities. I can bid at any time throughout the day and any given vehicle throughout the day.
The great thing about the ACV Auctions app is that simplicity of it. Fast, easy, convenient. You don’t have to be tech-savvy to use it confidently. It provides you with all the tools you need to bid on vehicles in the market. We buy a third of our inventory through ACV Auctions. For us it’s more about being able to get the quantity and quality of the vehicle that we are looking for and ACV has allowed us to have that option to do that through the app. The app is extremely user friendly.
I am not a techie by any stretch of the imagination. I’ve had no problems using it at all. It’s easy to see the photos. It’s easy to bid. It’s easy to get the information that you are looking for to make an educated purchase decision. ACV Auctions gives you the opportunity to buy anywhere, any time. I have bought vehicles on a Saturday morning in bed. It does become a little bit addictive.
You hear the notification go off on your phone and you want to see what car just got listed because you don’t want to miss out on a good car at the right price. A car listed on Monday, on Labor Day, we were closed. I was home and enjoying some holiday with my family and we ended up purchasing vehicle. So, it can happen any day seven days a week, twenty four hours a day. In the app a notification pops up, if I’m interested in it, I only have to touch a couple buttons and the vehicle is mine.
