12 Volt Talk: Expediting: It’s Not for Everyone
Just one slow-moving dealership can score you about a job a week, and that's nice. But there is another problem: Payment. You'll just have to wait for your money, which can hurt if the job was a rear-seat entertainment system, alarm, remote start and tracking. That's a lot of product to lay out dough for if it takes three months for the check to roll in. Your vendors don't like to wait that long.
The advantages? You get to work on factory-fresh unmolested vehicles. Customers don't stand on your head. You get to take a field trip. With a string of dealers, you could essentially build an entire "other" business. But when that happens, you have to make the decision. Brick-and-mortar or Dodge Sprinter? I think most reading this would never give up their brick-and-mortar bread and butter. Most of us need a 'bakery' to call home. But sometimes a little extra delivered 'bread' goes a long way.
