    Used Car Dealer Business: Most DMV Inspectors Blow in 2020

    Used Car Dealer Business: Most DMV Inspectors Blow in 2020

    Used Car Dealer business owners everywhere are feeling the effects of a rough 1st half of 2020. The last thing anyone needs is more of the same tired DMV being adversarial to its own used car dealers.
     
    Truth be told there are some great inspectors that work for the California DMV like Inspector Partoza or Inspector Macias. Even some of the management seems fairly "on-the-ball" but for the most part, DMV inspectors use their power in a very sinister way.
     
    Their decisions and short-sidedness often results in the suspension of a car dealer auction license, whereby leaving the dealer unable to feed his/her family. Happens more to men, by the way...no wonder women live longer than men.

    Is the Juice of Pioneering Worth the Squeeze to your Used Car Dealers Business??

    Is the Juice of Pioneering Worth the Squeeze to your Used Car Dealers Business??

    Are you creating a unique used car dealer business model?
     
    As we pioneer different things in the used car dealer industry, I often ask myself if it's all worth it? Some things have worked out really well and then I've also had some stinkers.
     
    Now coming out of the lockdowns, we as small business owners have to find the sweet spot between reinventing any wheels and developing a unique enough experience for our customers to set ourselves aside from the pack.

So long for one point.

He says 1 million things to make in one point if he had a five minute podcast I would watch this every day… but I don’t have 30 or 40 minutes to get one good tool… if you get that.

Alvareztheceo ,

Lot of empty words

Concentrates too much on selling fear of all the negative aspect of the used car business. Makes it unwelcoming for new dealers to even join the business. Should concentrate more on being more positive and sell more on ways dealers can improve their practices not just rant on the negatives that most dealers already know.
