March 26, 2008 06:00 ET "Virtual Test Drive" Helps Southern Ontario Buy and Sell Used Cars, Vans, and SUVs

Online video ads sell used vehicles fast while saving buyers time, gas, and frustration

ST. CATHARINES, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 26, 2008) - Used auto sellers trying to decide how to sell a used car need to reach potential buyers in a captivating and engaging way that shows off every detail of the vehicle for sale.

There's nothing a potential car buyer hates more than wasting an entire day and tank of gas driving from dealer to dealer or home to home looking at vehicles they don't really want - and more upfront information can save both sellers and buyers valuable time and energy by helping them connect over the perfect vehicle on the very first try.

That's why one local company has developed a "virtual test drive" that allows used auto dealers and private sellers to show all the benefits of the vehicle they have for sale, and buyers to pre-screen vehicles thoroughly before they ever meet in person. specializes in connecting vehicle buyers and sellers online through a specialized video ad that shows buyers exactly what a vehicle looks like from all sides - and even what the motor sounds like. This saves buyers the painful step of driving to a ton of used auto dealerships - or private sellers - to check out used cars and trucks that don't meet their needs. And it means sellers can be confident that if a buyer shows up to see the car in person, it's a car they really want and are likely to buy.

One buyer recently drove all the way to St. Catharines from New England after watching a virtual test drive of a used Tracker through online video advertising on

"The video was good in that it showed the entire vehicle and I could listen to the quality of the engine," the happy buyer said. "I would encourage other dealers to use this method of advertising. It works!"

Both used auto dealerships and private sellers can benefit from the video ads - with dealerships saving their salespeople time, and private sellers showing off their used cars' best features - which can result in more potential buyers and a higher selling price.

"I liked the video idea because I knew my van was in really good condition for being older, and I had nothing to hide," said one customer who recently used a video ad to sell a used van through a private sale. "People watched the video and commented on how good it looked. It was sold quick and for top dollar."
