9 Things only Cazana do


“What makes Cazana so special?” - A question we get asked all the time.

Well, that’s an interesting question and one we have set out to answer in the post below. The short answer is, of course, our realtime retail back vehicle valuations that were an industry first. The long answer is listed below in 9 easy to follow points.

However, this isn’t your usual them vs us comparison table! No, instead the post below outlines 9 unique features you get if you choose to use Cazana’s award-winning valuation data.

There are far more unique benefits to Cazana than just the 9 listed below but for the sake of everyone’s valuable time, we’ve kept this short.

Should you wish to learn more please do get in touch with a member of our sales team on sales@cazana.com and they will be happy to fill in any blanks that this post hasn’t filled in!

So, boil the kettle, make your tea and get reading.

Sidenote: These unique features may change due to development changes and/or the competition catching up to us. But we will do our best to keep this updated regularly and keep you in the loop!

1. Working Back from Retail

As, we mentioned above Cazana’s valuations are famous for using a combination of current retail and trade selling price data to give a real-time valuation of what customers are paying for similar vehicles today, adjusted by age, mileage, condition and specification and what dealers should pay at trade (auction or part-exchange) or in the wholesale market.

At Cazana, we never manually edit the data instead we take a data science-led approach to help our client’s price vehicles more accurately and with greater certainty.

2. Largest database of vehicle data in the UK

Cazana originally started as UK Vehicle in 2012 and has the largest volume of vehicle data in the UK. Cazana reviews circa 780,000 live adverts a day, that’s 10 million a year and in excess of 25,000 sites inspected a day (the numbers speak for themselves).

Cazana’s unique approach collects vehicle data 24 hours a day, seven days a week with a team of data scientists and machine learning experts constantly building new models that interpret what the retail market is doing to give an accurate unedited view of the market.

3. Average days to sell based on real owner change data

Cazana Companion our realtime valuation tool also includes an accurate “days to sale” measure that shows dealers how long a vehicle will take to sell.

Combining days to sell and the available profit on a vehicle allows you to focus on the fast-moving, high margin cars - the two key measures needed to help sell vehicles quicker and make more profit in this competitive market.

4. Vehicle Specification data

What’s shown above is just the tip of the iceberg, you also get information on doors, gears, power, colour, seats, wheelbase, model year range, Cazana timeline, listed mileage, advert text and much more.

So, in summary, it gives you access to all the information you need to make informed business decisions about each vehicle.

5. Trade Portal

Cazana’s new trade portal is a system built specifically for trade customers in response to hundreds of requests for a better way of managing and pricing used vehicles.

This simple to use dashboard allows you to log into your account and use Cazana’s trade tools (Trade checks and Cazana Companion) from the same location saving you valuable time and makes using Cazana products and services easier.

Cazana trade portal is completely free to join, simply sign up here: https://cazana.com/uk/dealer-signup 

6) Comprehensive Vehicle checks

Sidenote: The above is a snippet of an example of a passed Cazana trade check!

Cazana’s provenance checks are the most comprehensive in the UK underpinned with Experian finance data at discounted trade prices all from Cazana’s trade portal.

Not only can you purchase new vehicle checks but you can view your recently checked vehicles at any anytime. Vehicles you’ve previously checked are saved in Cazana’s trade portal giving you fast access both in the office and out and about at auction.

Cazana vehicle checks include MOT events, keeper change event, number plate change events, first registration vent, previous sale event and more!

7. Stocking depreciation

Combining our data-science led valuations with the Cazana profit corridor we can tell you the depreciation of a vehicle in simple terms, letting you see how much money a vehicle will lose in value whilst you stock it.

8. View similar vehicle listings for sale

You can view other similar vehicles for sale in an easy to read list format. This allows you to justify your pricing by viewing live ads for similar vehicles and comparing values.

As you can see from the above image you can see the other vehicles VRM, age, colour, location and mileage, all the information you need to make for an easy comparison and to equip informed pricing decisions.
