Have you thought about purchasing a truck this year? Are you searching for that extra incentive to give you the best deal possible? You may have seen that some new and pre-owned trucks can be purchased at wholesale prices. This means the truck is listed at the same price the dealer received it from the manufacturer or seller.
Your first step to purchasing wholesale trucks is to do plenty of research. If you know the truck you are interested in, you need to collect as much data on it as possible. This includes the engine size, wheel package, trim options, mileage, and features. The more you can learn about the wholesale used truck, the more accurate you’ll be when figuring out the wholesale price.
Sometimes a dealer will use certain rebates and incentives tied to regional or national programs to help them sell at wholesale costs. So you will want to include terms like rebate in your search and look through the available incentives listed on each vehicle. These allow some wiggle room for the dealer to further discount the truck. As an example, if you are looking at purchasing a truck with a $30,000 suggested price tag and a $35,000 original invoice price. The dealer might have a $6,000 incentive listed on that truck for the sale. That means the true wholesale cost to that dealer was about $29,000.
There are often incentives given to dealers for selling certain amounts of specific models, vehicle types, or generating revenue in a certain time frame. This helps dealerships offset that cost.
