We know that COVID-19 and the lockdown have made an impact on the motoring industry, so we took it upon ourselves to do a survey to see how much it has been affected and how we can help businesses recover from these unfortunate circumstances.
The survey we conducted was sent to all the dealerships we have in our database and we would like to thank everyone who responded. Please view the survey questions and results below.
1. How will the lockdown affect used vehicle prices?
2. Will you change your stock mix (offer more lower-priced vehicles)?
3. Has the lockdown changed your digital marketing strategy?
4. Are you offering any online finance applications?
5. How many sales have you made during the lockdown?
6. Do you think COVID-19 will change the way your customers buy?
7. Are you offering any trade-in valuations during the lockdown period?
8. Will COVID-19 affect the ITC scoring of your customers, making vehicle financing more difficult?
9. Do you have a new marketing strategy to boost your sales efforts after the lockdown is done?
10. What percentage of your sales staff is operational during the lockdown?
