People choose to shop at large dealerships for many reasons, such as familiarity, but buying from a small, family-owned dealership offers a multitude of benefits that make it the better choice when making a purchase like an RV or camper.
When you shop with a major dealership, you are part of a larger group. This larger customer base allows them to worry less about creating lasting relationships through meaningful, caring work. Everyone has heard of a large dealership making a shady deal that ends up with a damaged vehicle that breaks down within weeks. This works for large dealerships because they know someone else is going to walk through their doors simply because they are a big brand name.
Small dealerships, on the other hand, have a smaller amount of customers. This provides them with both the opportunity and the motivation to develop strong relationships. You can trust that they have your best interest in mind because that is what keeps people coming back. If they sell a low-quality product, they’ll inevitably end up with bad reviews on Google or Yelp, which could be the difference between their business failing or succeeding.
A Different Variety of Models
Small dealerships often work with a lot more individuals to build their stock of RVs and campers. This creates a much wider variety of options for you as the customer. Whether you are looking for something small, big, old, new, or unique, you’re almost certain to find something that piques your interest. Large dealerships are much pickier with their stock. Selling one large, expensive RV will make them more money than selling half a dozen campers. This incentivizes them to only stock high-ticket items, which means they’re also going to push those products. You may have entered wanting something small or inexpensive, but they’re not going to back down until you’ve agreed to purchase a brand new RV.
Deciding to work with a small family dealership can be intimidating for some people who fear the risks that it may bring. Taking that step and putting your faith in a smaller business is certain to alleviate those fears and prove to you that it is not only the safer choice, but it is also the only choice that means you’ll work with a business that is as invested in helping you as it is in helping itself.
