AC Motors, one of the Philippines’ largest multi-brand mobility groups, which houses global automotive brands Honda, Isuzu, Volkswagen, Kia, and Maxus, held a media round table discussion for its business venture AC Motors Trade+. AC Motors is a portfolio company of AC Industrials (ACI), Ayala Corporation’s holding and investment firm for industrial technology, manufacturing, and vehicle distribution and retail interests.
AC Motors becomes the first dealer group in the Philippines to launch Trade+, a business enterprise that offers fast and convenient used car online selling and trade-in programs. It provides diverse channels not limited to the trade-in business; a hybrid traditional and online vehicle auction for new buyers and existing owners that streamlines the entire process of selling used cars. It features just a five-day turnaround time—from inspection, to auction, and payment. Customers would also be able to trade in vehicles from any brand, not just those sold by AC Motors.
AC Motors Trade+, which covers the used car customers with AC Motors’ 30 years of industry experience, over 50 vehicle models to choose from, flexible finance and insurance options, and an in-house team of evaluation experts who take pride in exceptional customer experience and satisfaction.
How does it work? Trade+ takes the hassle out of trading in vehicles and ensures the brand-new car gets into its owner’s garage in the quickest time possible.
- Customer signs up auction form and schedules an appointment for getting the car inspected
- The process begins with the customer signing up for the program and submitting their used vehicle information for proper inspection.
- Full vehicle inspection in 48 hours; unit listed for auction
- The details obtained during the inspection will then be uploaded into the Trade+ system where interested parties can negotiate for a fair price. Prices are determined by cutting-edge technology that scours multiple online sources ensuring the proper market price.
- Payment received in 5 days
- When the customer accepts the price, the deal is finalized with the proceeds going to finance the customer’s new car of choice.
After getting their brand-new car, customers can also enjoy the benefits of proper after-sales services such as expert maintenance, industry-leading warranties, and unparalleled customer support.
The best part is that customers can trade in their old vehicles—no matter the brand—and drive home with a brand-new vehicle from AC Motors. Customers are assured of a quick, efficient, and safe process. But the customer also has the option to just sell his or her used vehicle and not trade it in.
So, why trade with AC Motors Trade+? The program offers the best vehicle value pricing, the speed with the instant appraisal by valuation experts, and the convenience with an integrated service that suits customer needs.
