The energy, time, and resources your vehicle dealership puts towards each sale are taxing enough. It's even hard to meet your vehicle sales targets while providing a large selection for your customers. When one of your customers wants a particular vehicle, you have to check your inventory. If your car dealership does not have it, you try to locate one at another vehicle dealership. And if you find it at another car dealership, you may need to ship a car to your dealership for your customer to pick up.

That's where ERA Auto shipping comes in to save the day with reliable, professional auto shipping solutions that meet your car dealership's needs.

Is It Best To Buy A Car From A Dealer Or An Owner?

While you might be able to purchase a used vehicle from a private seller for a lower price in some instances, there are some major advantages to buying a vehicle from a car dealer.

For one, car dealerships have a public reputation to uphold. One bad sale can ruin their public image in the community. Because of this, they have more incentive to treat you fairly and equitably during the vehicle sales process.

Also, it's much easier to finance both new and used vehicles through a car dealer than a private seller. Some banks won't finance cars through private owners.

And if you have a car to trade in, the car trade appraisal process is a big reason to go with an auto dealer. Car trade appraisal can knock thousands off your vehicle’s purchase price. It can also help you offload your old vehicle in favor of something more your style.

While there are times when buying a car from a private owner is preferable, the car dealership route is the safer option.

How Much Does It Cost To Buy A Car Dealership?

The cost to buy a car dealership depends on whether you’re starting a new dealership or purchasing a preexisting one. It also depends on whether you want to sell used vehicles, new vehicles, or both new and used vehicles.

You also have to consider these added expenditures -- business registration fees, accountant fees, property leasing or purchasing, auto dealer bonds, business licensing, payroll for your staff, insurance fees, and the cost of creating or maintaining an inventory.

The cost of opening a car dealership is usually in the $100,000 to $200,000 range initially, give or take.

This amount can vary based upon whether you’re purchasing inventory as part of a package deal, or whether you’re starting an auto dealership from scratch.

What Is The Cost To Ship A Vehicle From A Car Dealership?

Because car shipping rates change with a vehicle's size and weight, location, season, and driver availability, it's always best to get an accurate car moving quote from our online car shipping quote calculator. Choosing options such as express vehicle shipping and enclosed car carrier services will also affect the quoted price of home delivery service.

If you are shipping an exotic vehicle or one that is worth more than $50,000, we strongly recommend our enclosed vehicle carrier option. It costs a little more than a traditional open car carrier, but it's worth it. Your precious cargo will be safe from the elements for the entire vehicle shipping process. That’s how we do car delivery service here at Nexus.
