I’ve been a Dealerslink Member for the past five years.
The biggest benefit is that there are no buy or sell fees using Dealerslink. You know the cars you’re getting are frontline ready and it saves you money.
Scott McKinnon, General Manager of Renaldo Honda describes how switching from vAuto to Dealerslink has given him and his team an unparalleled competitive advantage, changing the way that they source, manage and exit their inventory. There is a reason that 98.9% of dealers who switch to Dealerslink stay with Dealerslink.

Sims Honda does 30 to 40 transactions on the Dealerslink Marketplace every month, which saves the dealership $126,000 – $168,000 a year in auction fees. Because marketplace vehicles are retail-ready Sims Honda sees additional savings in reconditioning and lot ready times.

A customer came walking in one day looking for a late-model hardtop Mazda Miata, said Maynard. Using Dealerslink, I was able to locate that car that day, print out a customer brochure, and get a deposit from the customer pending final inspection. Within a week and a half the customer took delivery, and the transaction generated a high ROI with the potential for repeat business.

We were using vAuto, getting frustrated with the same things being said over and over – it seemed like it was a race to the bottom. On top of that, fees were continuously rising.
If you are considering Dealerslink vs. what you’re currently using, or what else is on the market – take a look at the product, the layout, the similarities – and then look at the price of the product. It’s a no-brainer after you do that. Dealerslink is the way to go.
It’s very easy to use, works just as well as vAuto, and there are newer features – and it saved us money overall. It’s a seamless transition from vAuto to Dealerslink.
