Jacksonville, FL Used Cars Dealer Announces Record Sales

July 2009 Jacksonville, FL: Auction Direct USA's Superstore in Jacksonville, FL announced record sales for June, and also posted its second most successful sales month since opening in 2007. Year over year sales increased 43%.

"The Auction Direct USA brand is gaining momentum in our market," said Robert Shatsar, GM Auction Direct Jacksonville.
"We're noticing a steady increase in website traffic, phone calls and in-store traffic." The entire state of Florida has been severely effected by the economic downturn; the general state of affairs within the automotive industry is another major factor car dealerships have had to contend with during the past year.

Consumers still need vehicles despite the uncertainty within the market. The consumer buying cycle may be increasing with regards to time spent in the market, but they continue to seek out the greatest values prior to purchasing; consumers are being extra careful to identify the best value.

Auction Direct USA's consistent growth with the Florida used car retail segment has pushed them to #35 in total sales out of over 4500 used car dealerships in the state and #3 in the Jacksonville used car market.

"Our mission remains the same." said John Iannone, CEO Auction Direct USA. "Our goal is to continue providing the best retail experience for used car consumers by offering the best selection of late-model, low-mileage quality used vehicles at the lowest prices possible."

Auction Direct USA's brand is synonymous with key principles such as trust and open information exchange. Consumers can expect a truly unique and satisfying used car buying experience by having access to over 30 brands, a no-negotiation price structure and a 3-Day, 500-Mile Money Back Satisfaction Guarantee. By doing so, Auction Direct USA has managed to achieve a 98% customer satisfaction rating.

The company currently employs over 300 people among its three used car superstores located in Victor, NY; Jacksonville, FL and Raleigh, NC.
