Make Every Deal Count with the DealersLink Reconditioning Tool
As car dealers, we all know how frustrating it can be when a customer won’t accept a fair price. Explaining “the why” to them can be both difficult, time-consuming, and frustrating. But thanks to the DealersLink reconditioning tool, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Make your dreams come true with the cleopatra slot. This newly enhanced justification feature uses real-time data and full transparency to help your dealership win more deals.
Our reconditioning tool replaces the “deductions and additions” tab within our Fastbook platform, simplifying the process and allowing for complete customization based on vehicle condition. Users are allowed to enter 10 unique items into each reconditioning report, with the option of setting “default items” for repeat use. Common default items include tires, windshield, brakes, and accidents reported, but can be customized based on specific vehicle traits.
Once a dealer has selected his reconditioning additions/deductions, he is given the option to assign values to each item, as well as upload pictures. This process is made easy using our Fastbook app, which allows dealers to instantly capture and upload images to their reconditioning estimate. When all prices and items are added, a reconditioning estimate price is displayed at the bottom of the form, as well as added to the overall trade-in value. Within merely minutes, a dealer can have a fully transparent “evidence manual” at their full disposal.
So why use the Reconditioning Feature?
For starters, it increases customer transparency. Instead of simply “taking your word for it”, customers can see specifically what lead to the decreased value on a trade-in, with pictures and specific values assigned to each deduction. This not only helps the customer better understand the trade-in process but builds trust, creating potential for future transactions.
Better yet, the DealersLink reconditioning feature promotes efficiency by saving you time and energy. With distinct images and fields for each deduction item, this report helps customers more easily understand why their vehicle is worth a specific value. This saves you the headache of bartering with the customer and explaining to them why deductions were made on their vehicle. Images allow them to see exactly what you are referring to in your report and understand why it has decreased the value of their vehicle.
In the words of DealersLink VP of Dealer Services, Devon Peterson, “This tool helps dealers efficiently and accurately present a fair trade-in offer to a customer with full transparency, ultimately aiding the dealer in maximizing profitability. It’s more than just a feature. It’s an evidence manual that can help you close any deal.”
