Anticipating Market Movements

In the ever-evolving landscape of the automotive sector, foresight isn’t just a skill—it’s a strategic asset. At The Automotive Advisor Team, we pride ourselves on not just navigating these changes but staying several steps ahead. Our mission? To empower dealerships to not just compete, but to dominate and expand their gross departmentally.


The Tale of Preparation: Ants vs. Grasshoppers

The past few months have illustrated a timeless fable in real-time: the story of the ant and the grasshopper. Those dealers embodying the ant’s spirit—prudent, prepared, and proactive—find themselves in an enviable position, fully stocked and ready to seize the season’s opportunities.

But what if you find yourself identifying more with the grasshopper, having watched the season change with apprehension? Here’s where the story takes a hopeful turn.



There’s Still Time to Pivot and Prosper

It’s never too late to adopt the ant’s mentality, and The Automotive Advisor Team is here to make that transition not just possible but seamless. Whether you’re seeking to bolster your inventory, refine your pricing strategy, or explore innovative growth avenues, our expertise is tailored to catapult your dealership into a realm of unprecedented growth.


Let’s Forge New Paths Together

The market did exactly what we anticipated, and with the right strategies, so can your dealership. The good news as with trend predictability by region, nameplate, price band and segment embedded in The Automotive Advisor Team’s Used Car Optimizer program, we are able to help dealers source, prep and sell used cars quickly with an eye on departmental gross growth in any market.  You can see the UCO tool here: Used Car Optimizer (
