How Aggregators Are Being Used to Slash the Cost of Moving Cars

In this article we take a look at how online aggregators are bringing the cost of transport down.

An Economical Approach

Dealers are currently in a strong position, as they are able to research a number of quotes and get good deals. One step on from similar deals available for motor trade insurance, dealers are now able to find ways that can help both improve margins and manage costs.

On the Up

In some cases, vehicle movements – often arranged through vehicle logistics platforms – have seen phenomenal increases, a trend which looks set to continue.

Quotes in Minutes

Online platforms for the industry are similar to those websites that offer consumers price comparisons such as https://www.quotemetoday.co.uk/motor-trade-insurance. They provide dealers with the ability to advertise deliveries online and receive almost instant quotes from a wide range of transport providers.

All About the Tech

Aggregator technology is on the up, as is its use within business; just as consumers have benefited from price comparison sites for items such as utilities and insurance, businesses are now jumping on the bandwagon and reaping its rewards.

Cost Savings

Research has shown that dealers who post their jobs online save an average of 15 per cent – in a three-month period – on transport costs.

Competitive Pricing

In the past dealerships have worked with a number of preferred suppliers to arrange their transport needs; traditionally this has seen them receiving a handful of quotes only before settling on a price. With the surge in online platforms, this has a positive effect on pricing, as it allows every job to potentially be seen by hundreds of providers.

Quality Service

It is a well-known fact that with the development of comparison websites and the array of companies out there all clamouring for the same business, customer service can sometimes be compromised. However, the dealership industry prides itself on taking a proactive approach and only registering those providers who have been vetted, thereby avoiding a free-for-all situation with a potentially negative knock-on effect on the customer. This means that customer service remains a priority and is complemented by rating systems which allow both the client and the provider to give feedback on each other. Clearly this system ensures that both work hard to achieve the best outcomes.However, the dealership industry prides itself on taking a proactive approach and only registering those providers who have been vetted, thereby avoiding a free-for-all situation with a potentially negative knock-on effect on the customer.
