We did it, we finally moved our dealership! Moving dealerships is a task that can wear anyone down.
We began construction about 1 year ago and we're scheduled to be in the new building four months ago but the contractor kept causing delay after delay. It was amazing to me to go to such a massive new facility being built and only have one or two workers present. Talk about giving you ulcers, seeing that you just know you are loosing money. (I can only imagine what our sales could have been over the summer had we been in on time. Ouch. Hind sight is 20/20, but it's clear we would never use that construction company again.
At least we are in now, we started moving cars as business was winding down. I hired 30 temps to help drive cars and I was still at the dealership until just after 2 am over seeing all the cars being parked, lining everything up and unpacking boxes after boxes. Sunday we unpacked until 10 pm and opened this morning for business. It wasn't the prettiest opening, some signs were yet to be installed and we still have a month or so of construction workers completing the details of the building"
