South Carolina Ford Dealers

The years 2008 and 2009 have been tough ones on South Carolina Ford dealers. Slow new Ford car and truck sales have caused fine South Carolina Ford dealerships to cut staff, services and watch every penny in an attempt to survive the resession we now find ourselves in. One bright spot that these Ford dealers can capitalize on is the used car market. Customers in a recession tend to do two things. Buy used cars and trucks vs new and maintain and repair existing vehicles longer. So instead of focussing on new Ford sales and financing South Carolina Ford dealers who want to thrive not just survive need to look at new revenue streams in the areas of used car sales and service related income like vehicle maintenance and repair and also body repair.
