North Iowa residents looking to buy or sell a vehicle now have an online alternative with the launch of a new partnership between the North Iowa Media Group and CarSoup.com.
The North Iowa Media Group includes the Globe Gazette in Mason City, the Mitchell County Press-News in Osage, Forest City Summit and Britt News-Tribune.
CarSoup.com — an online venue for buying, selling and researching cars, trucks, motorcycles, ATVs, boats and other vehicles — is available through the Globe Gazette website, www.globegazette.com, as well as www.carsoup.com.
“We are very excited with the partnership with CarSoup as we launch the premier destination to buy, research or sell a vehicle in North Iowa", said Howard Query, publisher of the North Iowa Media Group.
“CarSoup has found the online solutions that dealers are looking for and creates a virtual car lot that consumers will find easy to use.
“CarSoup.com was created by dealers for dealers. This was important to us as we bring marketing solutions to dealers that benefit readers of our newspapers and those on our websites.”
On the website, consumers can search for a vehicle by make, model, year, price, mileage, body style, color and location.
It also allows dealers to provide their own financing options to the customer.
Another feature provides immediate quotes for the trade-ins from the dealer.
