How to Recondition Used Vehicles for Front Line
Across the US, headlines about the microchip and new car shortages flood automotive news. As dealerships scramble to stock their lots with inventory, properly reconditioning used vehicles for front-line display is more important than ever. Dealerships are navigating the effects of the pandemic by purchasing large quantities of used cars and taking in off-lease vehicles to recondition and fill their lots.
Develop a Strict Used Car Vetting Process
Understand your region and which vehicles are in demand. Rule out vehicles that are unlikely to sell quickly. Many dealerships get stuck with vehicles that appeal to emotion, rather than numbers. It is smart to establish guidelines for used car buying to include:
You know your dealership and what will sell- let that be your guide.
Once you have a supply of vehicles ready for reconditioning, how can your dealership perform a high-quality reconditioning worthy of front-line display without eating up too much profit? Not all dealerships have the equipment or full-time body shop employees to perform the needed paint and body repairs. Set your reconditioning process up for success with the right products and processes that can reduce cost and duration of repair.
