I live in the UK and have worked in the motor trade for pretty much all my life, from trainee sales person at the age of 17, moving on to new and used car sales roles, becoming the youngest business manager within the Ford network at the time in 1996 at the age of 20 then through to senior management roles and becoming Head of business for a used specialist car business belonging to a multi-franchise group to which I was also and group buyer.
At the age of 29 I decided to go it alone and set up a vehicle sourcing company which was eventually sold on due to the business growing too quickly. At this point I decided to open a retail used car site specialising mainly in high performance vehicles, particularly Maserati, Porsche, and Bentley whilst still "underwriting" vehicles for my previous franchise group.
I decided to close the business in 2008 as recession hit and had luckily decided to to diverse a year prior in 2007 and developed and setup a new car buying website called dealerbid.co.uk which helps private sellers obtain different cash offers to buy their cars without the hassle of selling privately.
The site now has hundreds of registered motor dealers from small local traders through to main franchise groups and gives them access to over 5,000 vehicles each month without any costly advertising or infrastructure costs.
