Used vehicle reconditioning

Dennis Downer
I am wondering what the expectations are out there for reconditioning a used vehicle? 3 days, 5 days? It's sort of a process I have immersed myself in over the past year or so and have discovered that if you don't have a streamlined process and stick to it, you are fighting a very difficult battle. In my store it seems to go with the tide and changes quarterly. I would have to assume that is the biggest problem. What are some of the best practices out there?

The ideal, and I mean IDEAL is have it inspected, detailed, photographed and profiled online within 48 hours. Very few can accomplish this.

The policy I used was 3 days. The UC Dept paid door rate to the shop, but the shop understood that the UC Dept was their best and most valuable customer.

@Robert I agree, very few can accomplish it! @Ron That runs along the same goal our stores have but find it difficult to execute. Very well could come down to a teamwork thing and not necessarily the process for us. Definitely something to look forward to improving for 2015. Thank you for the feedback!

Robert,   At what point in your process are you dealing with the cosmetics issues of each car?
