I had never attended this event and looked forward to participating in the only event of this size organized by a state auto dealers association. The event itself was held in a super-cool venue – Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Being an avid sports…

SEO for Car Dealers: Why You Should be Using It

“I have no idea what you are talking about.” That was the response of the dealer who currently signs my paycheck. This was in a board meeting of approximately twenty people who were discussing a planned expansion of the dealership’s operations. Of course this included a renewed push…

From the NCM Institute: Dealer Beware: Pitfalls of Selecting the Wrong Contractor or Subcontractor Written By: Dennis Kane

Written By: Dennis Kane

I have seen a significant number of high value claims as a result of contractors or subcontractors not carrying insurance or inadequate limits of insurance.

Examples of high value claims against dealerships include:

  • Claim against a dealership’s workers’ compensation carrier or general liability carriers due to an injury of a subcontractor’s employee and the subcontractor doesn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance.

From the NCM Institute: The Difference Between ‘Good’ and ‘Great’ Auto Dealers Written By: Garry House

Written By: Garry House

In the first couple of paragraphs in his book, Good to Great, author Jim Collins makes several interesting statements:

From the NCM Institute: Why Dealers Should Be In Express Service Written by: Steve Hall

Written by: Steve Hall

Dealers know you must provide fast, convenient, and competitively-priced service in order to retain your customer base. They also know that oil changes and light maintenance are the most requested service items by customers. Knowing this, why do dealers continually fight express service?

I’ve heard all the excuses: it hurts my hours per repair order; it hurts my gross profit percentage; it hurts my effective labor rate; I can’t make any money in express…
