The Rising Cost of Used Cars

Tuesday, June 12th, 2012

A lot of Louisville KY consumers are surprised at the rising cost of quality used cars, which is understandable. To us in the industry there is no surprise, like always it’s simple cause and effect in action.

Any time the economy is down, it’s immediately reflected in the car business. After all America is a mobile society and has been since our boys came home from WW2. The automotive industry is and has always been a good indicator of the overall health of our economy. But we’ve had recessions before, so what makes it different this time?

What Happens on Saturdays at a Car Lot?

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

We Barbecue of Course!

That’s right! We throw down on some burgers and dogs with the company grill. After all it’s the weekend and we aim to enjoy it.

Saturday is the biggest day of the week on a car lot. And if the Sales manager knows his job he sends the guys for briquets,  lighter fluid, lean burger, and some high quality hot dogs with the accompanying buns. And!

It’s not hard getting a used car inventory noticed

If a dealer finds themselves in a situation “for one reason or another” where they’re not able to keep a lot of cars on the lot, then there are a few things that can still be done to attract the ever valuable customer onto their lot.
