It really is so simple. If you know cars, you will know how to add them to our system it's really that simple.

How do I add stock to Car Dealer 5?

Ok, it's easy! Many customers who have just signed up have asked us for training over the last few years on how to enter their vehicle stock to the system. We simply say, login and take a look, you can't break it so have a play! Within 30 minutes we usually get a phone call or an email saying how easy it is to use even for someone who doesn't know much about computers.

Getting your vehicle stocklist into the system is really fast and simple. Either enter the vehicle's registration mark to the the system and the vehicle details will appear. Simply add your price, description and images. If you are using the DMS you can also add your purchase price and any costs associated against the vehicle.

You can add YouTube video code for each car including many other options depending upon which package you choose.

Again, depending upon the actual website design you choose will depict what options you see in your admin panel.

That's it, once you have ticked the relevant boxes you have then entered your first car to the system and it can be seen immediately if you have set its status to On Forecourt.

Adding Images *

This is where our system is special. Upload your images all at once using our built in "Bulk Upload Facility". When the images have uploaded, you have the ability to rotate them and even re-order them by simply dragging and dropping them on top of each other, it's that simple! If you feed Car Dealer 5 from the Autotrader Connect platform everything is pulled from Dealer Portal in an instant.
