Thrifty Car Sales, a subsidiary of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group Inc., is adding online listing services that will be made available to its national network of franchised used car dealerships.
Today Thrifty Car Sales dealers have access to unlimited usage of eBay listing and management tools that will allow dealers to showcase their vehicles on the online auction site. In addition, Thrifty Car Sales franchisees will also receive posting tools for Craigslist — the online “local classifieds” and forum in more than 500 cities in over 50 countries — plus distribution to Oodle, Vast.com, AOLcars and other sites.
Also included are launch tools, advertising templates and unlimited exports of car listings for each of the 46 Thrifty Car Sales dealers based in the U.S.
“By standardizing our appearance on eBay, Craigslist and other sites, we will provide a consistent look and feel that translates into consumer confidence when making a purchase from Thrifty Car Sales,” said Lee Goldey, Operations director, Marketing and Advertising for Thrifty Car Sales.
Helping to provide the service is CarTHINK, a full-service Internet marketing, software and service company that has partnered with Thrifty Car Sales since 2007, having implemented a significant upgrade to ThriftyCarSales.com. CarTHINK is a data partner with Reynolds & Reynolds, an eBay Motors/eBay Local certified solutions provider and has data distribution agreements with hundreds of online classified destinations such as Autotrader.com and Cars.com.
