DriveChicago using WebBuy technology for trade-in quotes

July 26, 2019
DriveChicago has worked with WebBuy to bring its CarValuator technology to DriveChicago.com’s online trade-in tool. WebBuy provides dealers with a fully integrated, dealer-centric web application that allows website visitors to complete the trade-in and vehicle purchase process completely online. 
With WebBuy’s fully integrated car-buying app, customers can buy or lease a new or used vehicle from a dealer’s website. They can choose a vehicle, get a trade-in offer, cash/finance/lease, add a co-buyer, choose rebates, and complete the deal.
With CarValuator as the new engine behind trade-in leads on DriveChicago.com, dealers can better trust the value of those leads and turn that lead into a customer. The CarValuator process uses the owner’s VIN number to ensure year, make, model and trim match and provides the dealer with detailed information about condition, including photos, and aftermarket modifications. 
"We’ve always been impressed with the Chicago Automobile Trade Association and DriveChicago, and we’re humbled to partner with the association and its hundreds of dealer members," said Tom Murray, WebBuy and CarValuator’s CEO and co-founder, "and we’re confident that this partnership will yield tremendous benefits for CATA dealer members and their customers."
Previously, DriveChicago.com utilized a trade-in calculator that didn’t verify the vehicle by VIN, which oftentimes caused confusion when dealers reached out to potential customers via the DriveChicago.com trade-in leads. CarValuator ensures that both the customer and dealer will be happy with the vehicle’s valuation and the trade-in process.
"The addition of CarValuator gives DriveChicago.com a robust and precise used-vehicle evaluation tool," said Mark Bilek, DriveChicago.com general manager. "The unique neutrality of DriveChicago.com allows it work to provide leads to all CATA dealer fairly and this trade-in tool ensures that those leads will be of high value moving forward."
DriveChicago.com, which is a free service to all CATA members, works to cultivate new- and used-vehicle shoppers, guide them through the selection process, and pass them to CATA member dealers. This year alone, DriveChicago.com has had more than 750,000 visitors and delivered more than 10,000 customers to CATA member dealers through actions on DriveChicago.com.
