Wholesale Dealer License: How to Get Yours

If you’re interested in selling cars wholesale, then you’ll need a wholesale dealer license. 

This type of license allows you to purchase vehicles directly from auctions, manufacturers, or other wholesalers and sell them to your customers without paying the manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP). 

Wondering if this is for you? Get started by reading this blog on how to obtain your wholesale dealer license!

What is a Wholesale Dealer License?

Are you in the auto industry? Do you resell cars? 

A wholesale dealer license opens a new realm of inventory for you to work with, as many auctions are closed to private buyers. Once you have a wholesale dealer license, this is no longer an issue. 

Not only does this license enable you to tap into local markets that are not open to everyone, but you are also able to sell abroad. This means you can have clients all around the world and meet unmet demand outside of the United States!

This also works the other way around. You can import vehicles into the U.S. from several countries. This allows you to have a larger quantity of cars to offer your clientele. 

Here at US Dealer Licensing, we see most clients import from Canada!
