Welcome to OPENLANE

OPENLANE Europe is an online auction platform for professional car traders. We use our experience and expertise to help you sell vehicles quickly, effortlessly and for top market prices. We yearly sell more than 90.000 vehicles for sellers from many different countries.    

Our vision is clear and simple: we aim to be Europe’s leading vehicle remarketing website. Our main focus is bringing you the best deals available in continental Europe and the United Kingdom. Everything we do is carried out with the utmost integrity.

OPENLANE Europe operates under the umbrella of our parent company, OPENLANE. This means we use the full power of the entire OPENLANE platform, giving us access to industry-leading data analytics, and cutting-edge technology. This is a unique advantage that can’t be found anywhere else!

As a professional intermediary, we take all the hassle out of used-car sales. We handle all the logistics, payments and paperwork, so selling cars is simple and stress free from start to finish.

Our cars are the best on the web. We offer a wide range of end-of-contract lease vehicles, fleet cars, pre-owned company cars, stock cars, dealership trade-ins, ex-rental cars and more. And we find buyers for all types of used vehicles: passenger cars, vans, light trucks, and even damaged cars and vehicles that are beyond repair.

All about our cars

Our cars come from leasing companies, fleet owners and dealers. And they’re sold to car traders and dealers in continental Europe and the United Kingdom. The cars we sell are usually three to four years old, with mileages somewhere between 80,000 and 200,000 km. About a quarter of them are younger, with less distance in their rear-view mirrors.
We offer a level of transparency that’s rare in the used-car industry. We collect all the necessary data about each vehicle before it goes to auction. The details are displayed on our site, along with a comprehensive damage report, so buyers always know exactly what to expect.

Benefit from our huge, international network

Tapping into our extensive network of buyers is the best way to sell your vehicles for top market prices. The more interested buyers there are, the higher the bids. We have more than 100,000 registered buyers from over 50 different countries. This means you access international marketplaces and free yourself from local limitations. Plus, there’s no need to worry about cross-border complications—we handle the export logistics and all the associated paperwork for you.

We put your needs first

We’re here to make car sales easy for you. We understand that selling cars isn’t the only thing on your to-do list, so we make it a hassle-free process. When you start selling cars online with us, you’re partnered with your own personal contact.
This is a fast-paced world, and you don’t have time to waste. That’s why we never leave you waiting. We guarantee a short turnaround time. Those old vehicles will be off your lot in just a few days. The paperwork isn’t your problem; we take care of all the administration for you. And you never need to chase up payments—that’s our job. We’ll pay you the full amount for your sale within two working days of you approving the bid.

Enjoy our easy sales process

Selling cars doesn’t need to be complicated. We implement four easy steps to success: inspection, auction, sale and payment, and delivery. And you barely need to lift a finger. We’ll have an initial chat with you about your expectations and how you’d like the process to run. After that, you don’t have to do a thing until we present you with the best offer.
The first step in the process is to gather all the necessary details about the vehicle, including photos, a detailed description, damage report and all the necessary ownership papers. You can provide this information yourself, arrange a professional inspection, or OPENLANE can arrange this inspection for you (see table below).

OPENLANE can arrange an inspection for:

  • Belgium
  • France
  • Germany
  • Italy
  • The Netherlands
  • The United Kingdom

If you need any help preparing this paperwork, please contact us. Once we have all the vehicle details, we’ll facilitate the auction from start to finish.

When it comes to accepting an offer, the ball is completely in your court. If it doesn’t meet your expectations, you’re under no obligation to sell and you’ll have nothing to pay if you don’t. No sale, no fees!

After you sign off on a bid, you’ll receive your payment within two days. We handle the logistics of collecting and delivering the car. You don’t have to organise a thing, and there’s nothing left to worry about.
