THE RAC Dealer Network has struck a deal to offer 1,200 of its members the use of car buying service Tootle at preferential rights.
This agreement should be highly beneficial to RAC-approved dealers, allowing them to compete in online bidding to purchase cars from private sellers across the UK.
In the last year, Tootle has sold more than £19.5m worth of used vehicles, as it offers private owners another option for selling their cars other than part exchanging and traditional sites.
Sean Kent, sales director at the RAC Dealer Network, said: ‘The kind of quality vehicles often sold through Tootle very much fit in with the ethos of the RAC Dealer Network.
‘These are frequently well-cared-for, low mileage cars that have been cherished by their owners. High quality stock such as this is very much valued by our dealers.
‘We are continuing to build the range of benefits that are available to dealers who become part of the RAC Dealer Network. Use of Tootle is the latest and one that will prove very popular over time, we believe.’
Gordon Tulloch, CEO of Tootle, said: ‘We are excited by this latest development with such an established organisation as the RAC. Applying to new dealer customers from the network, this move step changes the number of dealers who are buying cars through Tootle, which is something that will help to further build volume and competition through our platform.
‘The quality of dealers that make up the RAC Dealer Network is very high and we are looking forward to working with them.’
