The activity

The Link Motors project represents a great news in the automotive world as well as a great opportunity for those who have always coveted and dreamed of transforming their passions into a business, but have always had to give up for several reasons:
  • High initial capital to invest for starting a start-up as a multi-brand retailer;
  • Very high fixed costs (location to be used for the exhibition, cost of storage and other costs typical of any business activity).

The Automotive Market between Private Individuals

The used car market in Europe is growing strongly, especially that of sales between individuals.
Link Motors covers precisely this slice of the Automotive market. Our goal is to position ourselves as qualified and experienced intermediaries, supporting both parties in the purchase and sale of a vehicle and in the 360 ​​° management of the entire process.

In Italy about 4,5 million car transactions every year (excluding the two-wheeler, camper and commercial vehicle market that Link Motors Franchising manages in addition to that of cars).

In 2019 (before Covid) the volume of business generated by the used car market amounted to 11,9 billion EUR. This number certifies, therefore, that the sale of used cars is a booming business. Furthermore, the data shows an increasingly pronounced trend in the use of web channels to search for used cars.

From this point of view, Link Motors Franchising has an online portal that allows, in a few seconds, to know the list of advertisements published by the various branches, relating to used cars and motorcycles of private individuals for sale.
