Question Time

For dealer advertising - do you accept data feeds from my dealer management system? (DMS)

Data Feed PartnersAt Van Locator we accept feeds from most data providers, such as Autoexposure, Gforces, Autolocate, Spidersnet, Autopromotor, Manheim Retail, Click Dealer and the Auto Trader's Trader Connect system.

Most data providers do not make a charge for the service, but please be aware that some do.

In addition we may be able to take the data directly from your website with no development work required by the dealer.  We write a program that 'reads' your website and takes daily updates of the stock including the images which automatically uploads to Van Locator overnight.
