RollSale Stories: Episode 1
So RollSale kicks ass because…well…because we know it kicks ass. Because we’ve been in the industry and understand the economics and how we are taking the dollars away from auto auctions to create better deals for consumers. It’s not super hard to explain but some people tend to gloss over when we get into it.
What they really want to know is, “How much more money can I get by RollSaling than by trading in?” Since we’re so new and the data is pretty hard to normalize, we’ve debated internally on the best way to answer this question. Soooo…
Here’s episode numero uno of “RollSale Stories”, which will be quick, anecdotal comparisons of some form of “trade-in” valuation compared to the actual RollSale transaction (i.e. it really happened on RollSale).
Last Monday we had a gentleman in St. Louis, MO RollSale his car to a dealer approximately 12 miles away from his home for $41,000.
AutoTrader.com’s Trade-In Marketplace certificate for the exact same car: $38,517
Difference: $2,483. Worth a few minutes to upload your car followed by a 12-minute drive a few days later? Most of us would likely think so.
