What is Web only?

Whereas many of our customers prefer to make use of our services by telephone, some are more comfortable communicating via e-mail or WhatsApp. To provide better services to them, Web Only was created.

  • Vehicles in the category Web Only are owned by consumers who prefer to communicate via e-mail or WhatsApp. This means that our call centre will not make any follow-up calls by telephone.
  • The available information is supplied by the consumer. You may assume that this information is correct and base your offer on it.
  • The highest offer is automatically communicated to the consumer via e-mail or WhatsApp.
  • Are you the highest bidder and does the consumer agree to your offer? Then you will be informed of this automatically.
What is the advantage for you?

If the customer accepts your offer, you can rest assured that the vehicle will indeed be delivered to you.

What is important?

In our experience, consumers are often willing to sell for a price that is 40 per cent below their initial asking price. A high asking price should therefore not prevent you from making a realistic offer.

Dealerdirect is not a traditional auction. Our on-line sales platform enables purchases directly from consumers. You have the best chance of obtaining a vehicle that meets your wishes and requirements if you make a realistic offer right from the start. Experience has taught that this offer should be between 70 and 100 per cent of your maximum purchase costs. The consumer is then more likely to sell.

Please note: if the consumer indicates that he or she wishes to make use of our services by telephone after all, Web Only no longer applies and the sale of the vehicle will be continued via the normal process.
