Building Your Own Car Dealership – The Wholesale Dealer License

When you decide to start your own car dealership, one of the first things you’ll need to do is decide how you want to operate. Are you going to build from the ground up? Or will you buy an existing business, and either run it as-is or revamp it with your own personal touch? Whichever option you choose, one important aspect of operating in any state that requires licensure of automobile dealerships is the license itself. This applies whether you’re building from scratch or buying an existing dealership. Here at US Dealer Licensing, we have the tools to help you get started!

Applying for a wholesale dealer license

This may seem like a strenuous process when facing it alone. When you partner with US Dealer Licensing to obtain your wholesale dealer license, this huge task becomes a piece of cake!

We will explain the process to you and be as transparent as possible in answering your questions. We’ll help you with everything from the application process to staying in contact with the State Licensing Division for updates and approval. 

Being that we frequently do business with them, we have a great relationship with the States we work in and we will ensure your 30-day timeline remains in good hands, moving forward as efficiently as possible. 

Once your application is approved, we will provide you with an address and plates for you to get your dealership rolling!

Finding the right location

Choosing the right location is an integral part of your dealership’s success. Location can have a big impact on your success, so it is worth taking time to find the perfect spot.

The location should be close to major highways and interstates, as well as in an area with high foot traffic or population density. 

You may want to take a look at nearby dealerships and how they are doing before deciding on a location. 

As mentioned earlier, we will help you locate this brick-and-mortar location for your new shop!

Hiring a Loyal Crew

As with any business owner you may want to expand your business and hire individuals to help you with your ventures. 

You may not always want to be working, believe it or not, so staff would be ideal to help run the dealership! If you want to hire staff, your wholesale dealer license will come in handy. You will need it to hire employees.

With the wholesale dealer license, you can then purchase cars from a wholesaler and sell them to retail customers.

Marketing your dealership

You will need to have a marketing strategy for your dealership. 

This will include print and digital ads, social media ads and posts, partnerships with local businesses, listing on search engines like Google or Bing, and events. 

If you want to be successful, you will also need to invest in inventory and hire staff. 

Some dealerships plan a launch party so that you can celebrate all of your hard work with friends and family. 

Whichever you choose to do, a marketing strategy is crucial and worth the trouble of putting together!
