SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., – Hagerty launched a free app to help collector car auction-goers make smarter buying decisions by helping them research and track vehicles they’re interested in.
The Hagerty Insider app, available initially on iOS, will include auction run lists, published pre-sale estimates, past sales data of similar cars, and Hagerty’s industry-leading valuation estimates. Soon after run lists become available, Hagerty Insider displays available vehicle details, including lot number, vehicle identification number (VIN), make, model, year, body style, and engine. Once a vehicle crosses the auction block, the app will update with the high bid amount and the sale/no sale status of the lot.
“When I’ve been at auctions in the past, this is exactly the kind of information I wished I had in the palm of my hand,” said McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty. “This real-time, modern approach also increases car value transparency in the market, which is always a good thing.”
The Hagerty Insider app is currently an auction tool but will expand to include other functions useful to the collector car enthusiast. The app will be available on the Android operating system soon.
Arizona auction-watchers will get the first chance to try out the app. The Hagerty Insider App can be downloaded from the iOS app in the app store, or visit www.hagerty.com for more information.
