How Do I Guarantee the Payment of Delivered Building Supplies?

Posted by Joe Gargiulo on Fri, Nov 16, 2018 @ 06:45 AM

Cash, check or charge, there are only three ways to guarantee the payment of delivered building supplies to residential or commercial job sites. Simultaneously, there are only three main channels for delivering supplies: pay the dealer to do it, hire a third party delivery service, or do it yourself. The meshed processes entail having an adequate vehicle to transport the supplies, a safe way to load and unload them, enough manpower, and of course, the means to make and accept payments. Read More

Auto Subscription Services Will Change the Way People Buy Cars

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Fri, Oct 26, 2018 @ 07:45 AM

“Eighty percent of companies see a change in how their customers want to access and pay for goods and services, and 50 percent of these same companies are changing their pricing models as a result.” – The Economist

Life used to be simple, or maybe just simpler. People bought new cars every few years because car loans typically carried three-year terms. They traded in their old cars at dealerships. The manufacturers (they used to be called the “Big Three”) introduced new models every September, and crowds of people would go to the local dealer on the day they were unveiled. It was an exciting period, but cars purchased three years earlier suddenly looks dated, and people thought about trading them in on new models. This used to be called “planned obsolescence,” although that is a loaded term and somewhat misleading.

The Rising Cost of Auto Insurance & How Dealers Can Help

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Thu, Oct 18, 2018 @ 10:45 AM

Studies show that the average car repair bill has gone up by about 30 percent over the last three years while auto insurance has risen almost eight percent just last year. Why did this happen and will there be enough left over in consumer coffers for them to buy new cars? Auto dealers can help, but the how and why may surprise some readers.

Well, the increase in auto insurance has to do with “safety technology.” In a low speed collision, typically in a parking lot, the parts of the car most prone to damage are the front and rear bumpers, which of course are not really bumpers anymore.

Posted by Brandes Elitch on Thu, Sep 27, 2018 @ 08:45 AM

It was Thursday, September 19, a warm day in Los Angeles.

We were working the day watch out of Bunco.

My boss is Captain Di Donna. My partner is Travis; he’s a good cop. My name is Joe Sunday.

We got a call about a scam at the Buy Here, Pay Here used car dealer in Universal City. We checked it out. The suspect was in the back lot, selling a used car to an elderly couple.

The female victim approached us and said, “It was terrible, officer; just terrible.”

Please, ma’am, just the facts.

“I’ll give you the facts,” she said. “I drove by this lot on the way home. There were balloons and free cake and cookies. The sign said, ‘FREE FINANCING.’ I decided to check out a car that fit my budget.
