ADESA and TradeRev have launched a new 30-day return guarantee that is available to its customers in Canada.
The subscription service is known as ADESA Assurance and allows participating dealers to return eligible vehicles within 30 days for a full refund of the purchase price and associated buy fee, according to the company.
“Keeping things simple, easy and friction-free for our customers is our top priority,” said Trevor Henderson, Chief Operating Officer at ADESA Canada. “With a subscription to ADESA Assurance, dealers can bid more confidently than ever knowing they can return eligible vehicles for any reason, no questions asked.”
Henderson said dealers want less risk and more peace-of-mind when buying wholesale through digital marketplaces, and “ADESA Assurance delivers exactly that.”
The service will cost TradeRev customers$149 per eligible vehicle purchased, while the cost for ADESA Canada customers will be $199 per eligible vehicle purchased — with a post-sale inspection. On both platforms, customers are eligible to receive a refund of their transportation costs, up to a maximum of $250, according to the company.
It is also worth noting that TradeRev has made several updates to its vehicle details page on its web application, which aims to provide dealers with greater confidence and flexibility in their purchases. Those updates will soon be available for TradeRev’s mobile application.
“With thousands of vehicles up for auction across Canada at any given time, dealers need accurate and reliable information to make quick purchasing decisions,” said Mark Endras, President of TradeRev. “The combination of our new vehicle details page and ADESA Assurance gives TradeRev buyers fast, actionable intelligence to help them make smarter decisions, more confidently.”
Endras adds that the tools and services offer dealers the flexibility to take advantage of the “reach and speed” of the digital marketplace with “zero risk.”
