A customer came walking in one day looking for a late-model hardtop Mazda Miata, said Maynard. Using DealersLink, I was able to locate that car that day, print out a customer brochure, and get a deposit from the customer pending final inspection. Within a week and a half the customer took delivery, and the transaction generated a high ROI with the potential for repeat business.
We have bought cars as far a Pennsylvania and Texas. DealersLink allows us to hand-select what will work best at our dealership and be able to bring in those vehicles from all over at a cost that is way less expensive than our local auction.
And that's how you can use the DealersLink Marketplace to succeed.
