Congratulations to Thomas Turner from Williams Auto Group!

“It can be a challenge procuring inventory for a dealer group but I can always count on OPENLANE to find the inventory I’m looking for – whether it’s for our Ford store or Toyota or Honda. OPENLANE is so easy and convenient compared to going to a physical auction. I don’t have to leave the store and with their mobile site, I don’t even have to be in front of a computer! I can buy directly on my iPhone!”

“I started buying and selling on OPENLANE pretty recently (February 2011) as a recommendation from a colleague and I’m glad I did! I’m very pleased with the variety of inventory to choose from. I’ve purchased all types of inventory from the site – from off-lease to repo and import to domestic vehicles. My rep is fantastic! Crystal makes the whole process super easy. Prices and inventory are tough right now but I’m confident OPENLANE can always get me the best price. My only regret is that I didn’t use OPENLANE sooner! I highly recommend OPENLANE!”
