DETROIT — Ally’s SmartAuction today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Nissan Motor Acceptance Corporation (NMAC) and Infiniti Financial Services (IFS) to list off-lease Nissan and Infiniti vehicles for sale on its online wholesale auction platform.
“We’re thrilled to work with NMAC and IFS to make Nissan and Infiniti vehicles available on SmartAuction nationally,” said Steve Kapusta, vice president, specialized asset management for Ally. “After a successful pilot last year, we’re excited to be a part of their remarketing strategy.”
Under the agreement, NMAC and IFS vehicles are available on SmartAuction starting today. SmartAuction provides dealers’ access to NMAC and IFS off-lease vehicles before they are shipped to a physical auction. The models are listed on SmartAuction immediately after they have been made available to Nissan and Infiniti dealers.
All dealers who are registered on SmartAuction can bid on the NMAC and IFS vehicles. All purchases are backed by SmartAuction’s comprehensive arbitration policy. With over 30,000 vehicles available daily, SmartAuction is an industry-leading online auction that offers access to a virtual inventory of wholesale vehicles for eligible dealers of all brands, all according to the provider.
