Wholesale Web service goes online
LAMBERTVILLE, N.J. - A regional dealer-to-dealer wholesale Internet service debuts Nov. 15. Dealer Wholesale.com is a regional wholesale network that enables new- and used-car dealers and wholesalers to post a 'wanted list' of vehicles they need on the Internet. If a dealer in the region has a vehicle that is on another dealer's wanted list, the dealer with the vehicle can contact the dealer in need and arrange for a sale.
The fee is $395 per month.
A company spokeswoman said Dealer Wholesale.com has signed up about 50 dealers and some of those dealers own multiple dealerships. The service will be available initially to dealers in eastern Penns ylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
