OneMain Remarketing, the auto remarketing unit of OneMain Financial, announced the re-branding of its service network from CitiFinancial Remarketing Services.
The rebranding follows a similar step its parent company, OneMain Financial, completed last July when the company was rebranded from CitiFinancial to OneMain Financial.
OneMain Remarketing, which has sold 500,000 vehicles since 2000, will continue to service the same client base and utilize the same auction network that it did under its previous name.
In addition to the name change, OneMain Remarketing also debuts a fresh web presence and an updated and enhanced version of its industry-leading certification program. The CitiFinancial Auto Certified Gold and Silver products have been updated and are now offered as "OneMain 15" and "OneMain 8" products, which allow a 15 day and 8 day certification warranty, respectively.
