How To Choose The Right Kind Of Used Car Platform

Choosing the right kind of used car platform is not always an easy task. As with most things, there’s a lot of different factors to consider and many different options which need to be thought about before a decision can be reached.

However, the problem that a lot of people run up against is that they don’t know what needs to be considered when it comes to choosing a used car platform. Because of this, they don’t wind up going to the right place and getting the best deals. To try and help you to understand exactly what you need to consider when it comes to used car platforms, we’re going to look into a few of the different options here and now.


When searching for a used car platform of any value, you must consider its reputation. The reputation of any kind of used car platform will have a significant bearing on whether you should consort yourself with it or not.

Consider other kinds of popular car platforms, and use them as a basis for how you judge the rest. Auto Trader, for example, is a well-known car platform which is often used as a measuring point for others. Dave Gillespie of Jennings Motor Group has spoken about them, and said that ‘Auto Trader has become an essential part of the car dealer business model, not just a strong player but also as an indicator of what any good platform should aspire to be’.


Used car platforms have been around for years, almost since the dawn of the modern internet itself. Therefore, it’s no surprise that some of the most well established and optimal sites are those who have been around for a good decade. It’s important to try and consider the age of a website when sorting through them because the older ones are more likely to be reliable places to choose a vehicle on.


Look carefully at how a used car site presents itself. What characteristics immediately jump out at you? How do they affect the way that you look at the site? These are all important things to consider because they can make all the difference. When looking for a well-used car platform, make sure you find a site which is well put together, easy to navigate around and has all the features you’re looking for. If it doesn’t, then it’s not for you.

Take for example Auto Trader. When you compare them to a site like Parkers, it’s easy to see how the two are good platforms. They’re both easy to navigate, they both feature a wide selection of different options, and both sites are well put together. They both have that professionalism.

Overall, these are just a few of the different things that you need to consider when it comes to trying to get access to a used car platform. You need to make sure that you filter down all of the different options which exist to make sure that you’ve chosen the right one. The right kind of used car platform will make all the difference when it comes to trying to make sure that you’re getting the right kind of vehicle for your specific needs and requirements, and it’ll impact your experience in a big way.
