Many people have never heard of dealer auto transport, but it is a valuable service that can help you in many different situations.
- Dealer auto transport is when a dealer purchases cars directly from manufacturers or distributors and transports them to dealerships for sale. This process helps reduce the dealership and manufacturer/distributor costs by eliminating middlemen such as car lots.
- The dealer pays the transporter upfront, usually with cash or check, then takes possession of the vehicle once it reaches its destination. Once they sell their vehicles at their location, dealers are liable for any damages during transport.
- There are a few things to consider when transporting dealer vehicles. First, the transporter will need the car’s original title to complete the transaction. Second, dealers should be aware that they are responsible for any damage to their cars during transport. Finally, it’s important to be familiar with the transporter’s insurance policy in case of any accidents.
The concept of moving cars around from dealership location to dealership location has been around for decades in America. Dealerships have always needed to transfer new or used cars from one showroom location to another to be sold at different prices. And because dealerships often have many more cars than they can store on their property at any given time, these vehicles need to be transported from one dealer to the next. This is where dealer auto transport comes into play.
