Dallas-based driversselect.com expands facilities to keep up with consumer demand

By placing these vehicles on the Internet instead of fancy dealer showrooms and pricing every vehicle thousands below retail, we do not spend near the amount it costs the average dealer to deliver a vehicle

Six months after launching a new way for consumers to buy vehicles, Dallas-based auto dealer driversselect.com has tripled the size of its store facilities in order to keep up with consumer demand.

In October 2010, driversselect.com created a system that allows users to buy used-vehicle inventory from the Internet, which eliminated the high costs of fancy dealer showrooms, expensive service departments, overpriced real estate, and a sales process that involves many personnel negotiating and haggling over price.

Driversselect.com prices their cars at the lowest possible price to remove the expense and hassle of haggling. "By placing these vehicles on the Internet instead of fancy dealer showrooms and pricing every vehicle thousands below retail, we do not spend near the amount it costs the average dealer to deliver a vehicle,” said Steve Hall, founder and CEO of driversselect.com. “We are able to pass these savings along to consumers, which add up to several thousands of dollars.”

Consumers have taken so much notice of the savings that driversselect.com has had to expand their facilities from two acres to more than six acres and lease another 8,000 square-foot building. Sales at driversselect.com are not just coming from the low prices on vehicles. "People have become so frustrated with the typical used-car buying experience because they either have to overpay with their money or overpay with their time,” said Brittani Arrington, director of marketing and social media. “But we have seen our sales significantly increase in a tough economy. Much of it has to do with our process and how quick, easy, and hassle-free it is to get the car you want at thousands of dollars less than what you will find at other dealers.
