Ken Garff Auto Group Adds CarStory® Market Reports to its Dealer Websites; Giving In-Market Used Car Shoppers Direct Access to Detailed Used Car Data

Auto group integrates Inline CarStory Market Reports into its nearly 50 dealership websites; information-rich reports increase consumer engagement and trust

 

CarStory, the industry’s largest provider of search and inventory data and analytics on used vehicles, today announced that the Ken Garff Auto Group has incorporated CarStory Market Reports available into its nearly 50 dealership websites.

The CarStory Market Reports embed important vehicle research directly in the dealership Vehicle Detail Page (VDP), keeping consumers engaged and informed, and eliminating any need to click away to third-party research sites for more information. The comprehensive information that CarStory Market Reports offer consumers is unique in the industry, including real-time pricing and conditioning analysis, and facilitates a more transparent shopping experience. The reports are based on insights generated from a combination of real-time used vehicle listings and data from over eight million used car searches each week.

“One of Ken Garff Auto Group’s key differentiators is the level of transparency and trust we give to our customers,” said Jack Furbush, Digital Marketing Manager, Ken Garff Automotive. “We want consumers to expect a very different car-buying experience when visiting one of our dealerships and CarStory Market Reports are a great tool to help us achieve this goal.”

“CarStory Market Reports give used car shoppers a better understanding of the value of the vehicle they are considering and how its pricing compares to others in the local area,” said Chad Bockius, CMO of CarStory. “By giving consumers real-time insights on used vehicles, Ken Garff Auto Group is delivering on their promise of complete transparency. Additionally, telling the vehicle's whole story right on the VDP, will improve customer engagement– turning online browsers into in-store buyers.”

In addition to local, real-time insights on every vehicle, like detailed pricing and conditioning analysis, CarStory Market Reports also tell shoppers about the vehicle features valued most by other consumers and give access to U.S. Government crash test ratings.
