Press Release - Regional newspapers step up a gear in used car sales


Regional newspapers step up a gear in used car sales

Newsquest online motoring pages now powered by ExchangeandMart.co.uk, one of the UK's leading motoring sites

ExchangeandMart.co.uk is now powering the motoring websites of the UK's second largest newspaper group, Newsquest Media Group. Anyone advertising on Exchange and Mart will now have the opportunity to also have their adverts appear on the local Newsquest motoring websites, helping them reach a combined audience of nearly seven million unique users per month. Used car buyers will be able to seamlessly search thousands of vehicles for sale which match their very own unique search criteria at a local level, as well as across the UK.

As one of the UK's leading motoring websites, Exchange and Mart is an established and trusted brand which prides itself in offering one of the safest trading environments for buyers and sellers alike. One of the founding members of the Vehicle Safe Trading Advisory Group (VSTAG), an industry forum created to combat vehicle related fraud, Exchange and Mart continually campaigns to raise awareness of the risks used buyers may face and works closely with the Metropolitan Police and industry leaders to deliver a service that offers the highest levels of protection.

“This is an exciting time for both Exchange and Mart and Newsquest and our customers. Newsquest boasts over 180 local newspapers across the UK, such as The Argus, Oxford Mail and Northern Echo, many of which have more readers locally than national papers. By bringing Newsquest and Exchange and Mart together, we can offer one of the safest most intuitive buying and selling opportunities for consumers,” explains Frank McCaffrey, Managing Director of Exchange and Mart.

Vehicles privately advertised on ExchangeandMart.co.uk - and now the Newsquest 'cars for sale' websites - are checked against the Police stolen register before being published to ensure the sites are not being taken advantage of by criminals. To further protect buyers ExchangeandMart.co.uk has also recently introduced one of the most secure payment processing systems available, and partnered with Experian to offer buyers access to the UK's most popular vehicle checking service^, AutoCheck.

“By powering Newsquest's motoring sites, we are not only helping sellers access a wider audience but bringing buyers the benefits of our secure online trading environment,” concludes McCaffrey. “Buyers and sellers alike can head to Newsquest with the confidence they are being assisted by Exchange and Mart - a name they can trust.”
