Dealership Used Car Pricing: Then VS Now
Used-car pricing has come a long way since 1926 when Les Kelley published the first Blue Book. Today, dealers can use mobile apps to instantly compare all book values side by side; scan a VIN to retrieve vehicle specs; calculate additions and deducts; show sellers the fair value for their trade; get real-time vehicle pricing for their local market. This technology has helped reduce the average booking time from four minutes to 30 seconds.

We started with DealersLink eight years ago when they only had a Rocky Mountain Presence. Now that they have expanded their national presence, we are experiencing robust growth in our request volumes. The DealersLink Members have always paid promptly and have been easy to work with.
In the past four months we have recorded $0 in wholesale losses.
Before we had DealersLink, we would average $22,000 in wholesale losses per month!
