Used Car Values Go Through the Roof as New Car Inventory Gets Low

Due to a computer chip shortage, new car production in North America is down by more than three million vehicles in the first three months of 2021. General Motors projects it will take until late 2021 or early 2022 to build its new car inventory back to its normal level. As a result, more people than ever are purchasing used vehicles.

One of the leading reasons why both new and used cars are in such high demand is because employers are now asking employees to return to work. Plus, many who used public transit prior to COVID-19 may opt to travel in their own vehicle to limit their exposure to the virus.

Still, one of the biggest hurdles for used-car dealerships is how to overcome less-than-healthy conditions in a vehicle’s interior. Dealerships are often faced with cleaning up the aftermath of food, spills, pet mess, and toddler accidents. No one wants to purchase a car that has its previous owner lingering in the fabric, vents, and carpet. This causes lost sales for dealerships. For years, products that claimed to be the solution were available to dealers but always fell short. Today, NuVinAir® has eliminated the challenge by finally removing the funk.

“A lot of customers complain about used-cars smells, such as smoke or dogs,” says Josh Simitjis, reconditioning manager at Frank Leta Acura in St. Louis. “When NuVinAir® gave us a demo, our guys picked out two of the worst-smelling cars we had on the lot. NuVinAir® treated the smells and they went away. We’ve used it for a month and haven’t had a complaint since.”

Michael Ruwitch, a new franchise owner in St. Louis, Missouri, already has a dealership in St. Louis purchasing the NuVinAir ReStore treatment. “When I demoed them, the guys at the dealership took their worst car from an employee who is a major smoker to do the treatment,” Ruwitch said. “Their fixed operations manager said he wouldn’t even get in the car because of the smell. We did a ReStore treatment and 15 minutes later, they called everyone in the dealership to come and sniff and see if they could smell any smoke. They couldn’t.”

Quick and Effective Recon Companion

Restoring a used vehicle before it rolls off your lot can be a challenge. The dollars you spend fixing dings or dents, detailing to pinnacle condition, and advertising to draw buyers are for naught when interior odors remain. Consumers demand a clean car that doesn’t remind them of a previous owner, and off-putting scents are always a deal breaker.

The highly effective Cyclone treatment will attack every square-inch of a cabin and components which affect the air quality. There are numerous stinky sources hiding in a vehicle’s air-conditioning ducts. Prior to our patented technology, there was no easy way to remove them. At the touch of a button, the Cyclone activates and begins restoring interior conditions to like-new levels. Yeah, it’s really that easy.

The treatment is so fast, it will have interiors factory fresh before your technician is finished cleaning the exterior. This efficiency is a must-have companion in every detail and used-car department.

Repeat Business After Sale

Once a used vehicle is sold, many consumers will seek different avenues for repairs and maintenance. Offering an apology-free experience is your key to retaining them as lifelong customers for services other than purchasing.

Redefining the Customer Experience

There are numerous ways for a vehicle’s interior to be compromised, but once customers know where to turn for help – a beneficial relationship is formed for both parties.

If your used-car department or detail services could use a boost in enhancing profits and customer retention, it’s time to follow NuVinAir® into the future of clean driving.
