CARPROOF to showcase CARPROOF RECON at the Auto Remarketing Canada Conference

LONDON, ON, March 12, 2014 – CARPROOF, Canada’s most trusted vehicle history report provider, will be providing attendees with an exclusive opportunity to try out CARPROOF RECON, a groundbreaking new reconditioning tool, at next week’s Auto Remarketing Canada Conference in Toronto on March 17-18.

CARPROOF RECON is an easy-to-use mobile, tablet and desktop tool for dealers that uses the VIN to determine an accurate estimate of the costs involved with reconditioning a vehicle. The reconditioning costs are powered by the same database used by insurance companies and body shops around North America for estimating damage repairs. CARPROOF RECON delivers true and consistent reconditioning costs each and every time while allowing dealers to customize things like labour rates to their store.

CARPROOF RECON will officially launch this summer and will be an invaluable resource offered free to all CARPROOF Dealer Members.

“CARPROOF RECON is an impartial tool that helps dealers be transparent and communicates the true costs of reconditioning to the customer,” says Shawn Vording, Director of Product Management at CARPROOF. “By using parts costs and labour hours from a neutral third-party, CARPROOF RECON provides dealers with a verifiable source of data and eliminates much of the guesswork associated with reconditioning costs.”

Dealers can see firsthand how effective and innovative CARPROOF RECON is when they stop by the CARPROOF booth at the Auto Remarketing Canada Conference next week. Here, attendees can try out CARPROOF RECON and put their reconditioning skills to the test for a chance to win some great prizes! Come to the booth for an exclusive look at CARPROOF RECON as well as the opportunity to ask questions and talk to the CARPROOF team about this exciting new product.
