We have set up an entire division to make sure that we help our car dealerships and other business owners build their brand.

Every single year the reason is the same and I deal with over 600 dealers per year. The biggest reason that I hear that good California used car dealer go out of business is no big surprise. It's because they can't generate enough customers to sell cars to. When they first thought about flipping cars in California, it all seemed so simple.

  1. Get your pre-licensing education for 6 hours.
  2. Pass the DMV dealer license test.
  3. Go through the rest of the step-by-step process of getting your California DMV dealer license and let the good times roll!

Then once that used car dealer runs out of friends and family to sell to, they are left scrambling to increase their sales. And where are all the good folks that sold that dealer their quality services? Where is that agent that claimed that they were the best surety bond services of California for you? The one that you thought was such a bargain because he saved you $20? Be honest, you know they only really want to talk to you when it's time for you to renew your dealer bond!
