Posted October 06, 2018 05:09:11Auctioneer David Raup is taking the auction business to a new level with Tays.
Raup says the Tays team is developing an auction app to make it easier for car buyers to sell their cars at a reasonable price.
“A lot of people, when they are first getting into the business, they get into the process thinking it’s going to be a lot of work and it’s not going to get them anywhere,” he said.
“But you get into this business and you’re getting all the good work done, and that’s what we’re doing here.”
“It’s a lot easier to set up an app, it’s a little bit faster, and it lets people go straight into the sale.”
The app allows car buyers, who may not be familiar with the auction process, to buy a car and then immediately sell it for a fee of $150.
It’s similar to what many car dealers do, but it also has a few advantages.
“We’re getting a lot more people into the auction game because we’ve got the same rules and procedures that dealers do,” Mr Rauk said.
He said the app was currently being tested with about 500 buyers and about 250 sellers.
“Auctions are expensive, but that’s the way it is.
We’re going to go further and bigger and we’re going take the game to the next level,” Mr Jnr said.
The app is being developed by Tays Automotive Solutions.
Mr Raups team also runs a number of other businesses, including the Rauhns Auto Auction Centre, and has been building a number to support the app development.
“What we’ve been doing is building out a network of dealers who are willing to help with the app and get the app out to them,” he explained.
The app will allow the buyer to select the car they want to sell, choose their location, and enter the price.
Mr Rauls team will also ensure that the car is ready to go.
“It really does make a big difference, because it’s like buying a car from a dealer, you’ve got a number and you have a price,” Mr Tries said.
