Dealership Used Car Reconditioning can Increase or Decrease Sales Profits

Automotive Dealership’s auto reconditioning practices are vital to the bottom line when it comes to automotive sales.  If a dealership doesn’t have the proper processes in place, they will lose… and lose big time!  However, when done efficiently and properly, the dealerships margin can increase instantly.

When shopping for a used car, everyone wants to find one for a good price that’s in great shape. One challenge is how difficult it is to compare different used cars, because each one is unique and different depending on how their previous owners drove them and cared for them.  The single most important thing for any dealership’s used cars is the care and attention that goes into reconditioning them.

Many managers don’t realize how much reconditioning affects the operations of a car dealership, whether it’s an independent used car dealership or a new-car dealership with a used car division. What’s interesting from an industry point of view is how much the overall spend on reconditioning has gone up in recent years.  When the new car market is in a slump, the preowned market can mean the difference between a healthy bonus or looking for another place of employment.
