Manheim Toronto Offers Complimentary CARPROOF Report on Dealer Vehicles

MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 17, 2013 – To increase buyer confidence while continuing to enhance the auction experience for its customers, Manheim Canada announced that, beginning next month, Manheim Toronto will provide a CARPROOF® vehicle history report, at no additional charge, for any vehicles offered by dealers in Manheim Toronto sale lanes, including via Manheim Simulcast.

“We’ve been listening to our dealers, and we’re always looking for ways to improve their experience,” said Cheryl Munce, Manheim Toronto general manager. “While we’re confident that these reports will benefit our customers, we’ll continue to gather feedback and evaluate this new program to ensure they are receiving the value we anticipated.”

CARPROOF is Canada’s most detailed and reliable vehicle history report, providing critical information in a range of areas, from accident and fire damage data to inspections and maintenance background.

“We are pleased to be working closely with Manheim Toronto on this as we share the belief that providing quality information to customers adds value,” said Marty Meadows, vice president of strategic accounts and business development for CARPROOF Vehicle History Reports.

“Both buyers and sellers benefit from having more information about a vehicle,” added Jerry Tassone, market vice president of Manheim’s northeast operations. “We believe that the easier it is for our customers to access the information, the better it is for everyone. Including a CARPROOF report on our dealer-consigned vehicles supports our quality selling process and increases buyer confidence.”

Based on customer feedback, Manheim is considering similar programs at other Manheim Canada locations.
