Autotrader price marker adjustments

Recommended Posts

Theres lots of talk about the pricemarkers (generally negative). However, I reckon they are here to stay. Here are the adjustments I have made due to them. Anyone else make similair adjustments?

1) I want my cars to be good or ideally great price markers so if a car is fair but close to good I will reduce it but only by £100 or so. I wont slash a load off just to get a good price marker.

2) Similar to number 1, if what I feel a competitive price for a car shows low I will actually put the price up to get to great.

3) I will not advertise a car that states high price. So if I think a car is worth £4000 but the highest fair price marker is £3800 I will advertise at £3800. You need to make this adjustment before you buy the car if you dont want high price markers.

Are customers actually bothered about the markers? Am I adjusting too much? Who knows. Whats your thoughts and do you do similair adjustments?

so basically you do what autotrader wants you to do

Not the most constructive of comments, but yes they make me do slight adjustments. May be to 10% of my stock.

If genuine customers like the car most will buy regardless of the markers

Exactly. 
 

Anyone adjusting their prices to get a certain marker is a mentalist. As if punters  know what they all mean anyway.
