Wholesale car dealer

Wholesale car dealer

A wholesale car dealer is a car dealer that cannot sell vehicles to the general public, and can sell only to other car dealers. The wholesale car dealer may purchase from car dealer auctions and other car dealers but they can sell the vehicle only to other car dealers. If a wholesale car dealer wishes to sell to the general public they must perform a drafted sale.

Wholesale car dealers' basically are remarketers of vehicles between dealers and generally turn a small profit on each transaction, but complete many transactions in any given time period. Vehicles normally dealt with are new car dealer trade ins, off lease vehicles, a used car dealer's aged inventory, and sometimes just acting as a broker between two dealers and never touching the vehicle.
