Official dealers increased sales of used cars

Official dealers increased sales of used cars, while this market fell down, according to data of magazine “Autobusiness review”. But their share in sales of used cars is still small – 4%. 

As wrote newspaper “Vedomosti” with referring to ranking of “Autobusiness review”, TOP-50 of companies sold 96 thousand of used cars for 2011 and it is more by 35,6% than in the year before. Thereby, according to estimation of AUTOSTAT agency, the total market of used cars in 2011 decreased by 3% and it was 3,98 million units. So, though the share of official dealers increased in this market, it is still small: 50 big companies occupied only 2,4% of market in quantitative terms, said the chief editor of “Autobusiness review”, Sergey Baranov. He estimated the share of all official dealers in sales of used cars in 4% or about 160 thousand cars for 2011. Nevertheless, the tendency is obvious, Mr. Baranov supposes: more often people make choice in favour of buying the checked car at the vendor, who gives guarantees.

In Moscow this tendency is more remarkable than in regions, also due to the scheme trade-in: official dealers controlled 27% of used cars market (65 thousand cars) in capital in 2011 against 20% in 2010, said the manager of analytic centre of group “Rolf”, Andrey Izmalkov, in the conference of AUTOSTAT agency. But this share doesn’t exceed 6% in St. Petersburg. Leaders of rating didn’t reveal incomes from sales of used cars and it is known that the average price of one car is about 680 thousand Roubles (it is more by 3% than in 2010) among participants of rating, said Mr. Baranov.

With growth rates decreasing in the car market more of distributors will support the development of their dealer sales of used cars – also as an additional possibility of new cars sales by taking part of sum for an old car, said the chairman of Committee of car producers of Association of European business, David Tomas. Besides, dealers earned more by selling used cars: the average profitability from sales of new cars of mass brands seeks to European indicators of 3-4%, when the margin of used cars is 8-10% even at European dealers. Mr. Baranov supposes that the main tendency of 2011 was the opening of specialized centres for work with used cars.
