TradeRev found a way to help dealerships that are still trying to get their businesses back in order after Hurricane Harvey.
On Tuesday, TradeRev launched a special offer to help Houston-area dealers replenish inventory lost during the Category 4 storm. For a limited time, Houston-area dealers will receive free transportation through CarsArrive Network on any vehicle purchased on TradeRev from Texas, Oklahoma and Florida.
The company hopes this will alleviate some of the financial pressure dealers are experiencing while helping them quickly source high-quality units to meet surging consumer demand. TradeRev and CarsArrive Network are both business units of KAR Auction Services.
“KAR’s auctions and affiliated business units have played an active role in the hurricane relief efforts, and we’ve witnessed the hardships our customers are facing first-hand,” said Becca Polak, TradeRev president and chief legal officer and secretary for KAR Auction Services.
“Using TradeRev will help Houston dealers source inventory more quickly and conveniently from a broader seller-base than the local auctions. And the CarsArrive promotion is one way we could show our support and help dealers rebuild their businesses,” Polak continued.
This free shipping offer ends Nov. 30. The company explained it is limited to buying dealers located in Texas ZIP codes impacted by Hurricane Harvey. For more information on the zip codes eligible and offer restrictions, visit the news section on TradeRev.com.
“CarsArrive is proud to partner with TradeRev to help our shared customers in Houston recover and rebuild,” said Michael Briggs, president of CarsArrive Network and RDN. “We have strong, long-standing relationships in Houston, and we want to see this great automotive market back on its feet as quickly as possible.”
