Sourcing Inventory in a Post-Covid World
Luke Godwin and Jeff Watson – The Independent Dealer Podcast
Dealer Panel – Paul Bosco – Bosco Auto Group, Danny Zaslavsky – Country Hill Motors, Chad Pennington – Coast to Coast Motors
Covid has changed all of our processes in very short order. The quickest and most profound change to our industry happened to the normal way in which we purchase the very product that is our livelihood. Dealers went from in-lane buying several days a week to not being able to step in an auction lane for nearly a year. How did this affect our business as a whole? What did the best and brightest in our industry do to make the quick switch and capitalize on the changing environment? How do we use current technology and old-school methods to source the best inventory at fair values? Join Luke, Jeff and a fantastic panel of Texas dealers to learn the keys to successful sourcing methods.
