Truck and Car Dealerships Sales Quotas

Here at Northwest Motorsport, we always want you to have the best experience buying a car or truck. Treating people with the respect they deserve by upholding our HILT values is our number one goal. Our second goal, though, is to keep that cash register ringing! The only way we can keep offering the best car-buying experience for you is to keep our doors open.

In order to keep those doors open, we need to meet our sales goals. While we always have our deadlines to meet, here’s an insider tip! During the months of October, November, and December our yearly, monthly, and quarterly quotas all come to a head at the very same time. That means crunch time for us! And that also means sales for you!

But you know how rough it is to wait until the last minute for holiday shopping. What are some ways we can get ready to buy a truck?

Take the Time to Research

The end-of-the-year holiday season can be a hectic time. But just like buying your Christmas presents in September, if you prepare yourself for it, the season is a breeze! So if you’re one of those folks who like to be prepared, just before Thanksgiving is the perfect time to start comparing your favorite trucks

Find out what you like, and – most importantly – what you need. Then, when you’ve narrowed it down to a few different choices of years and models, come on down to any of our 11 locations and start taking some test drives! The earlier you get an idea of what you like, the better prepared you’ll be to sign the papers. 

Here are some more things to think about before you buy the perfect truck.

The Best Time to Buy a Truck: Go on a Week Day

Of course, we’re talking about the best time of year to buy a truck, but let’s get more specific.

Well, one piece of advice we can give you is to come during the week, not the weekend. The reason is that there’s less foot traffic to wade through. If you have the extra time to be able to plan your trip, shoot for early in the week. Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are generally the quietest days during the week. Coming in when we’re a little less busy will always result in even more one-on-one time than usual!

Wait for the End of the Month

Remember those sales quotas we mentioned earlier? Well, those all come to a close at the end of each month. That means this is your best opportunity to get a really great deal! We love working with our community and getting them the best products for their dollars. 

But at the end of the day, we’re car dealers! We need to get the best cars and trucks out the door so we can do our own holiday shopping. If you want to sign for the best monthly payments on your new truck, come and see us when we need to pay ours!

Holidays: The Best Time of Year to Buy a Truck

If you’re thinking about buying a new truck and thinking about getting the best deal, there’s only one answer. You need to do a little bit of planning, and try to buy your new truck during a holiday sale! Here are some to look out for:

  • Memorial Day and Labor Day – Summer is usually one of the most expensive times of year to buy a car. Everyone wants to show up to the beach driving that new lifted truck! However, those high prices are usually rolled back on Memorial Day weekend and Labor Day Weekend. 
  • Black Friday – Black Friday marks the beginning of our end-of-the-year deadlines. It also marks the best time of year to think about buying that truck. We need to make sales, and you need to find a great deal on a truck – it’s a win-win!
  • New Year’s Eve – Not everyone wants to spend their New Year’s Eve at the truck dealership. But not everyone wants to spend it shoulder-to-shoulder in Times Square, either. Do you know what the difference is? If you spend it with us, you get your dream truck for a great deal.
