Select your best team members.
Football season doesn’t begin at the big game or even practice. It starts when your drafting your players. For your dealership, that means selecting the best staff members and contractors so your dealership is glowing from the inside out. Your team should provide amazing customer service but also be diligent in their work from ensuring proper safety and security of the dealership. Select the right people and make sure you have the proper staff training in place.
Create your plays.
If you’re not already doing so, you need to think of your lot layout. You’ve driven past other car dealerships and seen the cars lined up to showcase their features. But, your vehicles should be positioned in a way that not only looks great, but also deters sneaky thieves. Place vehicles to block exits and park all of your vehicles with emergency brakes on and wheels turned to the side.
Set up your defensive line.
You probably have an area at your dealership where you store your inventory car keys. Make sure you have these locked away at all times, even during business hours. You don’t want an unauthorized individual having access to those. Instead, your staff should have a process set on who has authorized access and how they can access necessary vehicle keys when needed.
Prepare your second string players.
Just because you have an amazing offense and defense set, it’s always good to have a solid backup plan. How? By setting up additional protection for your dealership lot from bright lights, to fences, security cameras and of course, GPS-based vehicle tracking.
These quick tips will help you create your game-winning strategy.
