Reconditioning 101 – NuVinAir Style: A Lesson for dealers in turning gross odors into gross profits.

As a dealer, you know the value of every open space on your lot – and the hefty cost of reconditioning required to keep your inventory in tip-top shape. It’s no secret, an issue plaguing the used-car market is what to do with vehicles that go unsold.

After several failed attempts to impress a buyer, it’s usually back to auction or employing “price slashing” events. In an industry with already slim-profit margins, a used-car department doesn’t have the wiggle room to negotiate prices.

If foul odors are causing consumers to hesitate when making a used car their own – the problem is alleviated by removing the previous owner. A quick treatment with the scientifically proven Cyclone restores vehicles’ air quality to OE conditions.

Risks of Used Inventory

There is no doubt that odors in vehicles cut into the profits of your dealership. In fact, secondhand-auto giant Manheim, recently reported that foul smells can reduce wholesale prices of used vehicles by at least $300 compared to similar models. Lowering your asking price is already cutting into the profits you had in mind. Now, consider the additional expenses you accrue in recon – the expensive attempt to temporarily solve an odor problem, causes permanent damage to your bottom line.
