iDealerServices Lot Service

Comprehensive Online Inventory Management Lot Service

Professional 5-day a week Online Inventory Management
iDealerServices, Inc. offers a comprehensive online inventory management lot service. The iDealerServices Lot Service is uniquely designed to help dealers achieve the highest possible online inventory percentage while keeping dealer management informed as to the status of their ever changing inventories.

iDealerServices

Inventory numbers change daily and new issues arise daily as vehicles are taken in via trade or purchased at auction and delivered to the lot. As we are on site Monday through Friday, photographing and monitoring the flow of vehicles, we can process units the day they arrive on lot or the day they clear recon.

If there is a reason we cannot process a unit, we will communicate to management the status of each vehicle and why it was not serviced. As a part of our online inventory management, we have specific processes and practices in place to increase the level of communication between our Field Service Reps and your Managers.

Who We Are !

iDealerServices started out with one mission. Creating eBay listings, in the Chicagoland area!
Soon, we found ourselves in the Central Florida market.

2 years later, we were a small company, employing 5 full-time photographers, providing our services to a dozen dealerships.

Fast forward to housing bubble burst, and we sold our little company to Kelly Bluebook.
8 months later, autotrader buys out Kelly Bluebook, and we found ourselves back to being solo and independent, and much better service, than being attached to an 800 pound gorilla, of a company!

iDealerServices rarely says no! That is what makes us unique. We find a way, to create custom lot photo/video solutions, and take each client as it’s own unique scenario.

Live Video Walk-Around

Shoppers want the same experience they get at a dealership. Full-motion, walkaround videos offer a full 360° exterior walkaround and interior view.
