TTT - a big hit with the trade
Tuesday, September 06, 2011

The present economic climate means that everyone wants to move stock in the fastest and most efficient way. Auctions traditionally would have been the primary route for ex-lease and repossessions, but attending an auction is not always convenient and can be time consuming with no guarantee of results. 

Trade car specialist PJ McKenna Cars Ltd., are offering an alternative to the auction in the form of its Transparent Trade Tender (TTT) which is suitable for banks or any dealership wanting to off load stock and achieve a “fair” trade value. Two of the country's major banks are already successfully utilising the system and trade customers have been very impressed by both its convenience and the quality of the vehicles on offer.

Customers can view full details of the cars available and watch a detailed video appraisal of the vehicle, which gives full disclosure of any issues the vehicle may have on the TTT section of the website. They have time to evaluate the vehicle and tender an offer, all from the comfort of their own office. PJ McKenna says, “we have taken on board what our customers have been telling us, that they can buy vehicles on line from the UK, pay for them and have them delivered promptly to their door. We have a huge database of customers throughout the country and we saw an opportunity, particularly when the exchange rate is not favourable, to offer a similar service. TTT gives customers relaxed, easy and great value access to a huge variety of vehicles, without the time an inconvenience of attending an auction.” PJ adds, “We've had everything from a 1999 VW Passat Tdi, right through vans and 4x4’s to stretched Hummers, Porsche convertibles, Mercedes CL AMG, and a BMW M3.”

Currently PJ McKenna is hoping to run two tenders per week for major financial institutions in Dublin. However, PJ also points out that the video appraisals and the tender operation is available to anyone anywhere who has a volume of vehicles that they wish to sell for whatever reason, thus cutting down on the need to move cars to an auction site. PJ says, “Commissions are very favourable and there are great value transport rates available.” He adds, “Everyone is keen to
do business.”
