2021: a record year for autobiz.fr with 15,000 cash purchases from private individuals

With new car sales in free fall, used car transactions have accelerated considerably in 2021. To meet the growing demand for used cars, autobiz.fr has increased its volumes by 50%, bringing in more than 15,000 cash purchases for its 200 French partners.

autobiz.fr a pioneer and leader in the French Market cash trade-in

The year 2021 was a successful one for Europe’s leading provider of valuation, data, and technology solutions for the motor trade. Last year, the autobiz.fr website made 15,000 cash purchases, representing an increase of more than 50% in volumes compared with 2020.

In addition to the increase in the number of qualified appointments made, members of the autobiz.fr network benefit from a comprehensive support programme, ranging from training in sales techniques and cash purchase practices, to structuring their used vehicle business using the tools in the autobizOffice suite.

More than 20 Top 100 bands are already members

This cutting-edge support and the volumes provided by autobiz have enabled many players to take the plunge into cash trade-ins in 2021. Faced with a shortage of used vehicles, many professionals have joined the autobiz network in which to open-up a new, profitable sourcing channel.

Our network has grown from 120 partners in January 2021 to 200 in December of the same year. Amongst them, we are fortunate to work with professionals of all sizes, including major distribution groups. 20 members of the top 100 – including BYmyCAR, Hess Automobiles, and Auto Bernard – are already members of our network. In 2022, our objective is to continue to increase the number of our partners to meet the current increase of more than 50% in our volumes.
