Reconditioning Vehicles the Proper Way | Used Vehicle Cleanup and Reconditioning | Facilities, and Equipment at Used Car Dealerships

If you’re looking to buy a used car for sale, much more than price should strongly be considered. Price is definitely a top consideration, but shouldn’t be the only factor. The quality of the used, or pre-owned, vehicle for sale you are looking to purchase is a crucial area most drivers overlook, or don’t know what to look for. At Vern Eide Motorcars, your used car dealership in Sioux Falls, we’ve outlined how important reconditioning is and what to look for because we believe that the little things count, like properly inspecting and reconditioning vehicles. It’s one of our core values, known as The Eide Effect. Not only is the process of reconditioning vehicles important, but so are the facilities and equipment at used car dealerships

In many dealerships, the reconditioning department is crammed in small areas or located where there is extra space in the building. Very little attention is paid to what is needed for lighting, space, personnel and equipment. These areas of the facility are very important to ensure the proper inspection and workflow process allows for proper treatment while reconditioning. Not to say the reconditioning center should be out on the showroom floor or open to the public! At our Vern Eide locations, we view reconditioning vehicles very seriously. We know that when it’s done correctly we provide safer, cleaner, and overall better vehicles that will drive longer and maintain value. The bonus happens to be the safety it provides.

We look at more than dents and scratches, rips and tears. We inspect the windshield for cracks, ensure the technology is working, all doors and trunks work as expected, heater and air conditioner functionality and so much more. Hold on! We do more than inspect - we also fix. One of the main differences between our used car dealership in Sioux Falls compared to most others. We can’t stress how important it is to ask questions on what’s been inspected and fixed before you purchase a used car for sale in Sioux Falls. As you can see, a great deal of thought needs to go into the amount of space being dedicated to the reconditioning department.

Now that we’ve outlined our facilities, it’s also important to review the equipment used. In most used car dealerships the equipment is primitive at best. Possessing a shop vacuum, a few brushes and rags doesn’t allow for the process to be done in a manner that will ultimately provide a safe and cleaner used vehicle. Our Vern Eide locations have an advantage over other Sioux Falls used car dealerships, we also sell and service new cars. Vern Eide has numerous new car dealerships between Sioux City, Sioux Falls and Mitchell with brands like Honda, Acura Mitsubishi, Chevrolet and Ford. It’s important to note that each of these brands, or manufacturers, require very rigorous training and certification processes to be followed, as well as technology and equipment. The investment in technology and equipment carries over to our reconditioning centers as well allowing for a nice blend of experienced detailers that have outstanding equipment.

We don’t cut corners at Vern Eide. It’s one of the many reasons we’ve been able to stay in business since 1965! If you’re looking for a used car dealership in Sioux Falls that actually inspects and reconditions every vehicle, look no further to your friends at Vern Eide Motorcars.
