Epyx has passed a milestone for its 1link Disposal Network platform with the signing of its 3,000th trader.
Used by a growing number of major fleet and manufacturer vendors, the site will be used to sell around 68,000 cars and vans to franchise dealers, independents and car supermarkets this year.
Vicky Gardner, head of remarketing at epyx, said that the growth was directly linked to the availability of better quality vehicles in greater numbers through the platform.
She commented: “Greater numbers of quality vendors mean that greater numbers of quality traders are attracted to source stock from the platform. It’s very much a virtuous circle.”
Gardner added that epyx was seeing use of 1link Disposal Network increase substantially on a month-by-month basis.
“Our growth is based on offering exceptional, ready to retail, ex-fleet stock at a significantly lower cost of acquisition than most other sources, especially traditional auctions.
“The new traders we have seen registering to use the platform are coming from right across the board – franchise, independents and car supermarkets.
“In a used car market where the accent is very much on providing traders with cars and vans that can be put straight onto their forecourt or online sales channel, we are scoring very highly.”
