After record sales, AAA AUTO broadens offer by 1000 cars

“Our expectations have been confirmed that there is a great deal of pent-up demand for used cars that has accumulated over a number of months when only online sales were available. It continues to be clear that people prefer choosing a car in person at a dealership, where they can take a test drive on site and compare with other models. This is also reflected in number of visitors and sales, which last week were roughly 35% higher than for this time before the pandemic. That’s why we have decided not to wait and will add another 1000 vehicles to our inventory as quickly as possible,” said Karolína Topolová, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of AURES Holdings, the operator of the international AAA AUTO network. On Saturday May 15th, the network even set a single day sales record, and a record for the entire week. “The previous record from February 2020, a month before the first lockdown, was 373 cars sold. We really did not expect Saturday’s jump to 415, 227 of which were in the Czech Republic. At the moment, cars are disappearing from dealerships faster than we can purchase them. We are therefore significantly increasing purchasing activity throughout the entire republic and in all other countries. We are focusing on cars that have never been in an accident, with one or two owners, low mileage, and domestic origin,” notes Karolína Topolová.

AAA AUTO expects the demand for used cars to continue to grow because the summer holidays are approaching and many families are deciding to spend their vacation in the Czech Republic because of the continued risk of corona virus infection in mass transportation. 

Cars will continue to be a safer means of transportation than trains or buses. Demand should therefore increase, especially for station wagons and SUVs,”  says Karolína Topolová. Of course, it is still possible to buy cars from AAA AUTO online, with home delivery or branch pick up.

According to sales statistics, higher domestic sales are also drive by a new product offering car sales on installment plans with a guaranteed interest rate of 3.9%. AAA AUTO launched the product in cooperation with Moneta Auto Finance at the beginning of May.

Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the AAA AUTO network has regularly disinfected all vehicles on sale along with the premises of all branches. The health of dealers is checked regularly and they use protective equipment, masks and gloves. Disposable gloves and disinfectant are available to customers at dealerships, and customers are given enough personal space to avoid interaction with other clients. "Naturally, we will follow all the rules required by the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Industry and Trade, such as only one customer per 15 m2, two-meter spacing, cashless payments and keeping the length of customer stays to the bare minimum. Our facilities possess ​​many thousands of square meters, many activities take place outdoors and there is no concentration of customers in one place or indoors, even during normal operations," pointed out Karolína Topolová
