On-the-lot Services

Vehicle Merchandizing is the the work you do before, during and after the vehicle is stocked into inventory, to produce sales content about vehicles (vehicle description & options data, pricing, comments, photos, video, etc.). You need this vehicle content to list and position your inventory online and offline. Kick ass merchandizing is not just instinct and hard work... it's a science (repeatable, predictable, detail-oriented, data-driven). When done well and consistently, vehicle listings will produce more sales ready leads, improving vehicle turn and profitability. Do it poorly and inconsistently, and lead volume will decrease over time.

The search is over if you need a full-service, on-the-lot provider to take your pictures, print your window stickers and visit the dealership regularly. We have boots on the ground throughout the country, and we can visit your dealership to capture and optimize your vehicle data so you don’t have to; you focus on the upstream promotion and selling, and we’ll do the heavy lifting on the lot.

The Highlight Reel

Expert Inventory Merchandising: from expert photography to videography, from vehicle data/options optimization to comment generation, and from window labels to online data distribution, our licensed experts can do it all faster, better and cheaper (per vehicle listed) than the average $12 / hour worker. Because Vehicle Merchandizing isn't $12 / hr work.

Reliable inventory data distribution online: Not only does our platform deliver real-time inventory data updates online using advanced algorithm VIN decoding, but our experts go through extensive training to ensure that every vehicle on your lot is advertised properly, representing all options and selling points. This means no angry customers coming back into the showroom, telling you their vehicle was less than advertised. And we guarantee our data and our photos, or we'll cover the cost you incur.

Relentless customer service (results only attitude): AutoUpLink Tech does not take vacation days, we do not get sick, and in the event of in-climate weather or other situations, we have extra staff available to provide continuity of service. Our insured and licensed experts are available up to 7 days a week to keep your merchandizing in overdrive.

Eye-popping Photos & Videos: anyone can pose a vehicle and push the camera's shutter or record button, but our experts have seen it all before and know how to present each vehicle's strengths and popular options. From individual photos to photo streams, and from clips to engaging videos, your vehicles will never look better.

Modern Window Labels: Window labels aren't just compliance paperwork. Engage with shoppers when vehicles are both on and off the lot with custom sizes & shapes and best-of-breed vinyl window labels for easy-on-easy off application.
