Value Autos – we have them when “good” ones are available
When a car gets traded in, we have two choices:
1) Send it to auction
2) Have our service department work on it to recondition it after they do the required smog and safety inspection.
Especially at tax time when people get large chunks of cash in the form of IRS tax refunds, but other times as well, we keep a lot of traded-in cars at our dealership that we would usually send to auction. My store does not deal with wholesalers. Our company won’t allow it.
In a nutshell, this means we have to pay our own shop, the recoup the money we paid them when we sell the car to you. I have worked at stores that regularly send used cars out to other shops to recondition. These saves money as outside shops will bid on the work and give a big store like mine a real price break so we can still fix things on a car and be able to resell it at a profit which is the reason any business except the government is supposed to exist.
