Not all car dealerships are created equal. They serve different purposes for different areas and it can be difficult to know which one will be right for you. Chrysler dealers specialize in different things than jeep dealers which are different than Hummer dealers. Every different kind of car dealer works in different ways and caters to different needs depending on the geography and social need. It can be overwhelming to figure out which ones do what, however, and it can be even easier to just give up before you even start. If you take a step back, though, you can begin to consider each dealer individually and see the differences in sharper detail. By taking each dealership and doing specific research on each one, you can more easily think about what you need and what they might need from you. The relationship between car buyer and car salesman is mutual and beneficial, after all, and both parties should approach it with respect and consent. What follows is a list of different sorts of car dealerships and the types of cars they specialize in.
- Truck dealers
There are a lot of different brands of truck dealers and all of different uses for trucks in general. For example, we might want to think about a fictional truck driver named Paul. Paul needs a new personal truck, smaller than his rig but still big enough to haul furniture back and forth. So what sort of truck dealer should he consider? What would be the best one depending on his need? Well, it depends on the types of quality he needs. Some truck dealers specialize in pure horsepower. If Paul is hauling dense or heavy furniture like a piano or a bunch of beds, he might need one of these types of trucks. After all, he wouldn’t want his truck to give out when he’s driving up a hill. Then he’ll just fall backwards and be a safety hazard to everyone below. But maybe Paul doesn’t need an explicitly powerful truck. Maybe instead he needs a truck that has tougher tires and a tougher body, a truck that can take an intense beating from the weather. There are also dealerships that sale trucks like this although they can be a bit rarer to find. He should take his time to search through all the Ford dealers, Chrysler dealers and Toyota dealers to find the right one with the right trucks.
Stepping away from utility cars for a movement, let’s take a look at a different genre of car. While we’re doing this, let’s also take a moment to transform Paul. Now Paul is a banker who lives in the heart of Manhattan. So, suffice it to say, Paul has a surplus of cash and a bit more time on his hands. He’s also now looking for a car that fits his lifestyle and general geography. Because he’s in Manhattan, he’s going to want a tougher car that’s also pretty stylish. To find this, he’ll need to look into luxury car dealerships that might sell cars of this nature. These can be just as rare as specialized truck dealerships and so, once again, he’ll need to look through all of the Chrysler dealers, Toyota dealers and Ford dealers to find the right one. But, also like truck dealers, there are different sorts of luxury cars. Some are fast and sleek, aiming more for look than performance. Others are designed for outdoor luxury and have built in entertainment systems. The type of luxury car Paul will buy is largely dependent on his specific hobbies and personality. He’ll have to ask his specific Chrysler dealers, Ford dealers, etc for more information about this.
Another type of car that is dependent on personality to be sold is the outdoor vehicle. This type of car includes jeeps, hummers and other types of tough off road vehicles that can go a wider variety of places than normal cars. Of course, to make this decision, Paul will have to think about where he likes to go. Geography will affect this specific and specialized decision most of all.
