Manheim Brings Reps Back to Lanes

By Staff Writer June 11, 2020

 

Manheim President Grace Huang announced the company is bringing back hundreds of furloughed employees and, on June 8, began allowing sellers to rep cars in the lanes.

“I’m happy to report that we are continuing to experience positive signs of growth, including significant demand for used vehicles and record participation on our digital platforms,” Huang stated in an open letter. “Recently, nearly 20,000 vehicles were sold on Simulcast in a single day, and OVE saw an 81% increase in sales in one week.”

Huang added that “transparency and efficiency” remain critical to the company’s success.

Manheim is opening more lots for clients to preview inventory and more than 90 percent of Manheim sites offer expanded viewing days and times.

Huang added Manheim is planning to pilot in-lane bidding, requiring strict protocols, including redesigned auction blocks with plexiglass guards, new distancing requirements and enhanced safety measurements.

Manheim continues to waive Simulcast buyer and seller success fees, along with waiving Manheim Express sell fees for all self-listed vehicles and waiving fees for vehicles sold without a title or title absent (TA). It is also temporarily changing arbitration policy by not allowing arbitration on a TA vehicle.
