Sean Liptay

Wholesale Automotive Marketer

Sean Liptay has dealt with the automotive trade-in his entire career.  From an auction owner, to working with dealerships to improve the trade-in process to marketing for Accu-Trade. This is the story he gets to tell…

Every VIN on every vehicle has a wholesale value attached to it…from the latest model to the vehicle on its final trip back to the smelter. The sooner the relevant value is known the more efficient the market become, and eventually, buyers and sellers will be able to meet their expectations without any time delays or difficulties. Accu-Trade has the best chance to make commoditization of the VIN happen.

He is Accu-trade’s conduit for explaining what the current state of price discovery in the automotive industry, and what it will look like in the future.
