Used car reconditioning is a beast if it’s not managed correctly. Too often dealers (both variable and fixed) take a back seat to reconditioning. Often times they send in the vehicle to service for mechanical work and get it back when they get it back. Spend a few days “detailing”, then park it on the frontline (assuming it’s ready) and let the vendor swing by when it’s right for them.
The result; an aged unit that equals weeks of accumulated holding cost and a vehicle that’s far from “sensory” ready. With such a lag in the recon process, you have inadvertently just reconditioned your next wholesale price.
