Partnership drives much-needed dealership service revenue by facilitating recall repairs at no cost to private-party vehicle sellers
Laguna Hills, CA, May 19, 2020 — Recall Masters, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of automotive recall solutions, today announced a partnership with Boost Acquisition, a data and technology developer that connects in-market vehicle sellers with potential buyers at online and franchise dealerships. With the inclusion of recall data, Boost Acquisition can now check for-sale-by-owner vehicles for unrepaired recalls, reach out to their owners, and schedule repair appointments with client dealerships. Recall repairs are at no cost to the vehicle owner as dealers work with the manufacturer for reimbursement.
“Franchise dealerships are currently searching for revenue and consumers are hesitant to spend. Boost Acquisition has a much-needed solution for both dealerships and vehicle owners. Millions of vehicles with dangerous recalls exchange hands every month, leaving unsuspecting vehicle shoppers in the dark, placing dealerships at risk for product liability lawsuits and forcing sellers to accept less-than-ideal vehicle valuation. Our partnership with Boost Acquisition closes that gap in knowledge,” explained Christopher Miller, CEO of Recall Masters. “They also go a step further by connecting vehicle owners with factory-authorized dealerships who can repair those vehicles at no cost to owners. We’re so proud to include Boost Acquisition among our impressive list of automotive industry clients who want to safeguard consumers from dangerous recalls,” Miller added.
The demand for used cars has dipped in the past few weeks due to shelter-in-place restrictions, requiring that owners attend to those recall repairs to get a more favorable selling price. With recall data integrated into its solution, Boost Acquisition can better serve both dealerships and consumers.
“The data Recall Masters provides helps us get these vehicle owners into the dealership at a customer acquisition rate not available through other means,” said Patrick J. Howell, CEO at Boost Acquisition. “Not only do dealerships see revenue from the factory for recall repairs, but the interaction with consumers is leading to additional service repairs and vehicle sales. It is not the original intent, but a pleasant byproduct of taking care of the customer during their moment of need. Our client dealerships are amazed at the results and the quality of the customer interactions. More importantly, these experiences are exactly what consumers are desperately searching for.”
Recall Masters provides recall solutions directly, and through strategic partnerships, to more than 3,000 dealerships nationwide. Also, two auto manufacturers, BMW of North America (BMWNA), and Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) are contracted with Recall Masters to assist with boosting recall completion rates for select dealerships in key US markets.
About Boost Acquisition:
Boost Acquisition provides for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) consumers with a consumer “hub” to offer a variety of services. Not only do we help these vehicle owners sell their vehicles, but we’re also scheduling recall repair services with factory-authorized service centers and facilitating new vehicle purchases by connecting them to franchise dealerships. Boost also provides dealerships with an online marketplace where they can make offers on FSBO vehicles for sale. Offer prices are enhanced by utilizing information on open recall values (service and parts). In short, a vehicle is more valuable to the dealer if it has a serviceable open recall. Dealerships can also convert FSBO consumers to a new vehicle transaction.
