Have you ever want to know what goes into providing a great pre-owned vehicle service in Gainesville? In this blog, we’ll cover our daily Trade Walk and Stock Walk, a new store process that enables us to focus our sales and generate high-quality service for our customers. Read on to learn more about the behind-the-scenes legwork that goes into selling customers in the Buford and Cummings areas an extensive inventory of used personal vehicles and used commercial vehicles.

What is a Trade Walk and Stock Walk?

If you’re not in the industry, you may only have an idea of what this concept is. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to understand. Every morning, we meet with our sales consultants from every store and review the trades from the previous day – known as the “Trade Walk” part of this procedure. This information allows us to see what vehicles are selling and better cater our inventory to the needs of Gainesville used car shoppers.

After completing the trade walk, we also go over the remaining stock with each of our stores’ sales representatives. During the “Stock Walk” portion, we cover what vehicles are aging in our inventory, what’s missing from our inventory, and what we need to do to continue providing the cars our customers want.

We believe in holding ourselves accountable to keeping our customers happy – so we start every day by upholding this responsibility.
