DETROIT – Ally Financial’s SmartAuction vehicle auction web site and Renovo Services today announced that they have started selling repossessed vehicles directly from secured storage facilities across the country.
The Renovo company, ReposDirect.com, will utilize SmartAuction as a resource for lenders to sell vehicles more quickly, more economically, and with less risk of damage. For dealers, it will be a central source to buy repossessed vehicles nationwide without having to leave their dealership. ReposDirect.com will coordinate inspection and final transport for all vehicles after the sale.
Users of SmartAuction will have access to ReposDirect.com vehicle listings from all secured lots and the site will continually be updated with new offerings.
“The ability to move repossessed vehicles back into the market quickly and efficiently maximizes value for lenders and dealers,” said Kevin Flynn, CEO of Renovo Services. “We’re pleased to be able to offer to our customers access to one of the most vibrant selling communities in the industry. SmartAuction’s technology expertise and broad user base further helps Renovo Services strengthen its reputation as a leading provider of vehicle transition solutions.
