Many car brands are releasing latest models in the market. Bigger car is needed to accommodate the increasing number of family members. The car currently owned is no longer in prime condition. There are many reasons for someone to sell the car they own and replace it with a new one.
Nevertheless, selling a car is not as easy as turning the palm of one’s hand. There are many stages to go through; one of the most important steps is to determine the right selling price.
If the price is set too high, people will not be interested in buying the vehicle. However, if it is set too low, it will lead to loss instead of profit.
For the general public, it is not easy to determine a vehicle selling price. Making estimation on your own needs time, and the estimation may not be correct.
“The culture nowadays is that when people have a car and wants to know the price and condition, they check the price online through the sites of used car sales or check it in the newspaper, then subjectively determine the price,” IBID-Balai Lelang Serasi President Director Daddy Doxa Manurung saidduring a gathering with journalists recently.
To make the process of price checking easier, IBIDas a subsidiary of PT Serasi Autoraya (SERA) affiliated with Astra Group, which is in the business of vehicle auction, provides car inspection system that utilizes technology.
The first vehicle diagnostic tool in Indonesia uses the latest technology with an application installed in a tablet and an additional paint thickness gauge. This inspection method has the ability to check a vehicle’s condition and will determine the score of the car’s quality, whether it is grade A, B, C, D, or E.
With this technology, there are at least four parts of a vehicle that are inspected: interior, exterior, engine, and undercarriage. Each part consisted of a number of items so the number of points to be inspected reaches hundreds.
“We will inspect every car that comes in. We have inspection standards for hundreds of points. We process the data using technology,” Doxa said.
The final result based on the report will show price recommendation based on the data of vehicles auctioned by IBID previously. Because it uses the database of auctioned cars, the price will be below the market. To match the price market, the car owner can increase the selling price.
“It takes more or less one hour to get the final result and price recommendation for the used cars inspected,” Doxa explained.
With this technology, according to Doxa, it is expected that people will be more comfortable to conduct trade through auction in the future. Please click this link to find out more about IBID-Balai Lelang Serasi’s services.
