Auction Sponsored

DVS is the award-winning registered importer to America’s major OEM’s, offering the same level service to North American exporters and dealers through Auction Sponsored Programs. By leveraging first in class interactive technology, DVS has imported more than 650,000 vehicles from Canada to the United States.

Our interactive inventory management system is called CarZip. It is available on both mobile and desktop making it possible to see your vehicle’s export journey in real time. Your job is to purchase the vehicle and we do the rest! From the time your vehicle enters the CarZip app our odometer conversion providers, truckers, Customs Brokers, and storage location staff update each and every move. Our average timeline from the beginning to the end of the process is 25% faster than the industry average resulting in improved sales velocity and more capital under YOUR control.
