"Hi Randy Thank you for your comments. Have you tried the free marketcheck.com site? I have dealers using it saying it helps them close their harder customers. Also it is helping the dealer make better buying decisions and helps them price their cars…"

Good or Bad for Car Dealers? New Car Data Available For Consumers.

Soon consumers will be able to see how long your dealership has had a vehicle in inventory, all of the price changes that you made, if another dealership had the vehicle before your dealership and could not sell it and at what prices. They will also have pricing analytics comparable to vauto as well as all the vehicles that are available in the market that compete with your vehicle. We are now integrating this data with vehicle report companies and it will be included with their vehicle…See More

Youngest Car Dealer in the US?

Posted on April 27, 2014 at 11:53am 19 Comments

My son is 20 yrs old and just got bonded and started his small car lot a month ago. Mistake or success? He was in college and dropped out for the car biz. I taught him about credit and he started building it at 18 and maybe that was a mistake as a father as he would probably be in school still. Thoughts? He seems to be doing things successfully and selling cars. He has not gotten a website just a face book page and it is working. He is a unconventional dealer but maybe the new generation of…

MVED & Curbing cars. A problem in your State?

Posted on October 10, 2013 at 6:10pm 0 Comments

I have been talking with MVED in Utah and testing a system with them. It helps MVED find people selling more cars a year than the law allows. MVED simply puts a phone number in our data base and it shows how many car postings have been associated with that phone # for the last 12 months or the system can just alert them as it happens online. MVED only has funding for their department from temp. permits in Utah. MVED says in Utah they have more work than they can keep up with as to this…

Have you ever been at the auction bidding on a car that was traded in at a franchise dealer? Wondering if that franchise dealer was really selling that car now because they were unable to sell the car? Now you know. You know at what prices, how many dealers had the car before and how long that car has been offered for sale. marketcheck.com tells you all the previous online listing history of any vehicle that is for sale. Even the previous postings were taken down. Companies like Vauto.com…

This forum is not well set up, I didn't even know I had a comment wall.  I found the liability insurance market I was looking for, so I can at least start moving cars, I do think I'll need better coverage in the future though, but for now I can stop worrying and get on with my life.  Your data mining website is incredible, that was a good idea backed by some good skills.  Well done.  

Chris
