For Used Vehicle Acquisition, There’s No Place Like Home

One of the pain points I frequently hear from dealers is how to acquire frontline pre-owned vehicles for their stores.

Whom Do You Serve?

Whether we like to acknowledge it or not, we all answer to someone. Ideally, we see this connection as an opportunity to serve others. Serving others may seem old-fashioned but to the contrary, commitment to serving others is the route to true personal and business fulfillment.

My guess is our serve-others intention increases as we walk toward the new up. Yet to what extent do we actively serve those who have purchased from us already? The customer database is rich with existing…

How Often Do People Change Cars?

Your Vehicle Descriptions Could Be The Key To Selling More Cars

Vehicle Listing Ad Copy I buy most of the stuff I wear from a Canadian clothier called Frank and Oak, a company that lets me choose three new items each month and send back the ones I don’t need, free of shipping costs. It is subscription fashion, offering style for the lazy. The clothes are inexpensive but well-made, and usually the hard part is picking only three things. But…

Is Training Truly a Priority At Your Dealership?

 

I had a new salesperson in a dealership call me and the main thing that we talked about was how training was nonexistent at the dealership that he worked at.  It reminded me of how years ago when I joined the automotive industry I was sat in a room with four other people and the sales manager told us…

You Shouldn’t Be Surprised

Based on the Black Book reports, data collected and phone calls this past week Black Book expects there are a good many auction managers and personnel tuning in to see if the overall market mirrored their individual auctions in relation to activity, sales conversions and price retention. To keep the suspense down, don’t think it was anything you personally did or didn’t do to get the results you got. I guess if there is one exception it might be from a sale out on the west coast. The Brasher…

Vehicle Values Decline As Gas Prices Decline As Well

When last week started I was thinking what the activity and market would be like for the entire week. I was looking at gas price trends, the fact that used inventory continues to increase and even thinking about the time of the year. While spending time with some key, leading auto lenders from captives to national banks to some regional players, the effort is sure being made to make it easy for the dealers to complete the sale of both new and used inventory.



Fortunately the budget…
