CARMEL, Ind. — ADESA, a business unit of KAR Auction Services, launched a new buyer protection program called ADESA Assurance. The program offers a no-questions-asked return guarantee on select one-owner, off-lease vehicles sold on ADESA DealerBlock, the company’s online marketplace for 24/7 access to bid-now events or buy-now inventory from national vehicle consignors.
On purchases of eligible inventory, buyers can pay just $30 for the 30-day guarantee. As part of the program, ADESA will even pick up the vehicle from the buyer’s lot if it does need to be returned.
“ADESA Assurance means customers can bid with confidence, knowing they’ll have no regrets about their purchases,” said ADESA CEO and President Stéphane St-Hilaire. “With this added protection, dealers who have been hesitant about online buying can feel assured that they’ll have the option to easily return a vehicle — without question.”
ADESA Assurance is only offered for a limited time, on purchases made now through March 31, 2015. Eligible vehicles are selected one-owner, off-lease vehicles sold through the open sale on ADESA DealerBlock.
“ADESA.com is truly an exclusive opportunity for customers to get first pick at fresh off-lease inventory, because many of our sellers offer their cars in the open sale on ADESA DealerBlock before assignment to an auction,” said St-Hilaire. “And since we operate in excess of 90% of all private-label programs in both Canada and the U.S., there are more than 10,000 quality, CPO-eligible vehicles offered on DealerBlock weekly.”
