New Autorola Direct Debit policy speeds up used vehicle sales

Trials with 51% of Autorola’s 2,000 active buyers have seen the average time it takes between buying a car or van and having it delivered on site halved from eight to an average of four days by using direct debit.

In some cases, this has been reduced to as low as two days, helping to ensure a car or van bought online through Autorola is always on site and ready to replace a vehicle that has recently been sold.

Autorola is now able to arrange delivery immediately after a used vehicle has been sold online, safe in the knowledge that payment will be complete by time of collection.

‘We are constantly looking at new ways to make both buyers and sellers more efficient, while improving stock turn and reducing administrative time,’ said Jon Mitchell, Autorola UK’s sales director.

‘Direct Debit reduces administration for everybody included in the sale of a vehicle, including the buyer, vendor and our accounts team. It’s proving a real win-win situation,’ he added.
