A worrisome trend
Car exportation has exploded over the past three years with the decline in worldwide car production and weak American dollar. Exporters are now targeting luxury brand dealerships across the country and are continuously changing their tactics to ensure a steady supply of cars. Experts agree that the number of luxury cars purchased for export will continue to grow throughout 2010 and into 2011, making every dealership a target of this scam.
One Exporter Can Cost a Dealership Thousands
Car manufacturers are not taking this threat lightly. In an effort to protect their brand and global dealer network, significant penalties are being imposed at the dealer-level to combat this trend and pass along the financial impact. As a solution, manufacturers are penalizing dealers twice – costing dealerships thousands of dollars each time they sell a car to an exporter. The penalties include:
- Denying credit for sale
- Decreasing allocations
Worst of all, the penalties often surprise dealerships long after the sale, making it difficult to manage the sales process and ultimately wasting time that could otherwise be spent working with legitimate customers.
