Our History

More than a decade ago VehiclesTEST was founded with the goal of producing industry-leading video test reviews to increase new automobile sales for dealerships and educate consumers. Our turnkey video packages for Honda and Toyota dealerships converts traffic to leads by engaging consumers during the new car buying process.

Long before tech companies adopted the video-first strategy, founders Doug Thompson and the late Chris Kelly were producing short, professional vehicle reviews for automotive dealerships to improve SEO. Today’s younger consumers are watching more video and reading less, putting video at the heart of any marketing strategy.

Partnering with video service provider Flick Fusion, our video road tests are streamed in HTML5 and are optimized to load quickly on all devices. We work directly with web providers to the place videos on a dealership’s new vehicle and vehicle description pages. There are no extra streaming costs and Flick Fusion’s responsive player offers a lead-generation tool, social sharing and maps.
