The used car market has a large number of diverse cars put up for sale. These cars have different extents of usage, which may lead to different extents of issues in them. Some of these cars are relatively newer, having minor or no issues at all. While some others require major repairs, before they can be used.
To determine the condition of the used cars, the auction industry has decided to adopt a grading system. This grading system will make the condition of the used cars clearer. This software will offer points against the extent of damage in the vehicle.
This grading system software results in quite accurate grades, corresponding to the level of damage in the vehicles. It is expected that all the large car auction companies are going to employ the grading system by the current year’s end. This system would enable all the vehicles in an auction to have constant grades.
Working of the system:
The scheme of the grading system will operate on the basis of alphabets or numbers. The vehicles will be labeled as A to E or 1 to 5, based on what is preferred by the auction company. Both these methods of labeling will point to the same extent of condition of the vehicle. The vendor can choose not to offer grading of his/her cars, if he/she wishes to do so. The system comes with such an option.
Benefits of the Grading System:
This grading system is capable enough to be adopted by all car action companies, as soon as possible.
Car auctions, in general, are risky options for buyers to go for. There are many cars with hidden damages, which the buyers are unable to detect. They often have to regret after investing their money on such used cars. Only people with a keen eye and the ones, who are mechanically inclined, are able to make correct decisions on purchase of used cars.
With the emergence of such a grading system, even those who do not have a sound idea of the mechanical systems operating in the car, can go for used car purchase, putting their trust on the grading of the car.
The grading system has made car auctions a lot safer for buyers. Owing to the transparency offered by the grading system, a large number of car auction companies are employing this system.
