TradeRev Expands U.S. Footprint, Launches in Kansas City and Minneapolis

August 13, 2019

TradeRev, a digital platform that facilitates live, dealer-to-dealer vehicle auctions, announces its entrance into two new U.S. markets – Kansas City and Minneapolis. A team of highly-trained, customer-focused TradeRev representatives in each market will help dealers fully integrate TradeRev’s innovative mobile app, including its AI-driven image capturing tool H-Vision℠, into their dealership’s inventory buying and selling process. Increased dealer demand for TradeRev’s state-of-the-art platform, expanding seller network and improved end-to-end customer experience, led to the Midwest expansion.

“Our customer-obsessed focus, investments in innovation, data and technology and consistent TradeRev feature updates are paying off — dealers across the country are taking notice,” said Becca Polak, TradeRev president. “Kansas City and Minneapolis have highly-concentrated networks of savvy dealers looking for tools to take their business to the next level. With TradeRev, we look forward to putting that tool in the palm of their hand and showing them just how fast, fair and easy we make auto auctions.”

TradeRev is a business unit of global remarketing and technology solutions provider KAR Auction Services Inc. (NYSE: KAR). By leveraging KAR’s full suite of ancillary service capabilities, TradeRev customers in Kansas City and Minneapolis have an expanded coast-to-coast marketplace. They can now access TradeRev’s industry-leading technology, including its H-vision feature that fully automates condition report visualization, enabling them to:

  • Launch auctions anytime, anywhere: Dealers can launch live, 45-minute auctions from mobile devices and watch as live bids come in from across the country.
  • Sell more cars: Dealers can get bids even before the retail deal is done. Giving consumers near real-time trade-in value and transparency helps dealers more quickly make a sale.
  • Flat-fee transportation: Facilitated in partnership with KAR’s business unit CarsArrive Network, flat-fee transportation gives TradeRev buyers access to trade-in markets across the nation.

TradeRev continues to rapidly expand across the nation. For dealers in Kansas City and Minneapolis, TradeRev is free and, with an accelerated registration process, dealers can register and start transacting in as little as 10 minutes.
