Irvine, CA, February 22, 2017 (Newswire.com) - It seems like you can buy almost anything from Wal-Mart—and soon, that will even include cars and trucks. Wal-Mart has announced plans to launch an ambitious new vehicle sales platform, called CarSaver. The platform, a partnership with AutoNation, Inc. and Ally Financial, will launch in April, initially just in four major markets but with the likelihood of expanding down the road. Get My Auto has released a new statement to the press, commenting on the CarSaver venture.
“What Wal-Mart is envisioning is an easy and convenient way for shoppers to buy cars,” Get My Auto explains. “That includes new cars, used cars, and certified pre-owned cars. Using touch kiosks in select Wal-Mart locations, consumers will be able to select a car, get financing, and even purchase insurance, quickly and easily.”
The CarSavers program will initially be available in 25 Wal-Mart stores in Houston, Dallas, Phoenix, and Oklahoma City. Shoppers will be able to access the platform from in-store kiosks or from their tablets and phones. CarSaver customer service centers will also be available in some stores, and an 800 number will also be provided.
“Customers will be able to select a new, used or certified pre-owned vehicle and apply for financing and auto insurance on the kiosk at the CarSaver Center, on their mobile device via CarSaver's website or by calling an 800 number,” explains a recent article from Ad Age. “CarSaver then will connect customers with a local, certified dealer and schedule an appointment to visit the dealership.” The platform is scheduled to launch on April 1, with 16 AutoNation dealerships participating.
“The appeal of this is that it makes it incredibly quick and easy to buy a car,” comments Get My Auto. “You can literally do it from a touch screen, while shopping in Wal-Mart, and you can get transparent pricing, too.”
“Only time will tell if this represents the future of auto sales, but certainly, it taps into a real need that auto consumers have expressed,” concludes the Get My Auto statement.
