Tom Walsh - Porsche Wilmington
"We deal in expensive cars and they can be fickle. It's imperative that we properly understand their value so that we are in them right. At this end of the market a bad buy could well mean a $5K loss. Carbly has all the data we need to make sure that don't make costly errors."

"As a used car manager I have to make sure that I step up on trades to put the new car deals together but I also have to remain profitable as a department. Carbly provides all the market insight that I need to do that. The VIN text reader is a massive time saver too. It's so convenient to be able to scan VINs from documents that I have on my desk."
