Using the Internet to Find Your Cars for your dealer business
When starting an auto auction business, a recurring theme is going to be how to find cars to sell. Many people with a dealer license now buy and sell cars exclusively on the internet. The internet sites Ebay and Craigslist provide an endless supply of cars being offered by private owners. Although some or most cars offered for sale by private owners may have an assortment of problems, many may be minor and easily taken care of.
Sometimes the only reason the owner is selling is because he must move out of town or out of the country quickly, and is offering the car for a lot less than it is worth just to get rid of it. Auto license dealers who can find these bargain cars in good condition fairly often will make good money when these cars are resold.
People with a dealer license who do business in smaller cities will find it more difficult to make local deals, thereby being more dependent on the internet for finding cars in larger cities nearby. Some car license dealers who deal in more exotic vehicles such as foreign sports cars, may have to extend their search all across the country for a diamond in the rough.
There are large wholesale auto auctions held in large cities all through the year, where many retail dealers will buy several cars at a time. Their scheduled time and location can be found online. Using the Internet to Find Your Cars for your dealer business
