If you own or operate a dealership then you likely know how dealer trades work, but if you’re just starting out or are new to the whole auto dealership industry, we’ll give you a quick recap. Many dealers have to deal with customers who want a specific car that they don’t have in their inventory. But the dealer still wants the sale, so instead of saying “too bad, maybe next time” to the customer, they’ll instead do a search – a search of all the other dealership’s inventories across any range they desire to see if someone else has the vehicle their customers want. Some dealerships do dealer trades often, while others don’t. It’s not a requirement, but it is a part of the industry nowadays, and if you own or operate a dealership you should be aware of dealer trades and how they can help grow your customer base, expand your inventory and better your services to your customers.
However, finding the car that your customer wants is one thing; actually getting it to the customer is quite different. That’s where we come in. As an auto transport quote provider, we can get you multiple free auto transport quotes from reputable and reliable auto shipping companies, companies that we make sure are fully licensed, bonded and insured so you don’t have to. But what does this do for you? Well, for starters, it gets you multiple free quotes from different shippers, which means you get a full range of prices to transport any vehicle. Not only that but you get access to high-quality and professional transportation companies, not these one-or-two man shows that operate out of an apartment in the middle of Chicago or something. No, these are legitimate companies you will be getting car transport quotes from, and that type of security is hard to find in many niche industries nowadays. Security and peace of mind are great things to have when it comes to transporting a vehicle from one state to another one hundreds or even thousands of miles away.
At the end of the day, though, we get you in contact with the companies you want to be talking to. As an auto dealer that does dealer trades, it’s important that you have a reliable shipping company that you can quickly call and utilize at a moment’s notice for your shipping services, whether they be from dealer-to-dealer or dealer-to-customer (another option that many dealers have is to buy online, which can be great for customers but tricky for dealerships to handle properly). And while you may not need auto transportation services often, having a shipping company on-hand that you can do repeat business with will net you great deals, as many transportation companies love having repeat customers – it’s steady business, and dealerships are hard to snag and hold onto for auto shippers, so keeping one company in your Rolodex for the occasional car shipment will make your customers happy, your shipping company happy, and yourself happy all at the same time. It’s a win-win-win for everyone.
