ShipCarsNow Offers Auto Dealers Affordable Auto Transport Tips at 2011 National Automobile Dealers Association Convention & Expo

Omaha, Neb., January 25, 2011 – ShipCarsNow will join thousands of franchise car and truck dealers, auto manufacturers, and retailers at the 2011 National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) Convention & Expo February 5-7 in San Francisco.  As an exhibitor, ShipCarsNow will provide valuable tips and information to dealers and remarketers on how they can gain a competitive edge by expanding their trading zone and reducing auto transport costs with easy online services and tools offered by ShipCarsNow. ShipCarsNow will be located at booth 3416N.

"The NADA Convention is one of the largest gatherings of the auto industry," said Jeff Grandstaff, ShipCarsNow general manager. "ShipCarsNow makes attending this convention a priority because our online auto transport services can help dealers and remarketers maintain optimal inventory levels and improve profits."

Maintaining optimal inventory levels of quality, affordable late-model cars and trucks can be challenging.  As the competition increases for late model used cars and trucks, dealers increasingly are using the Internet to expand their trading zone and purchasing premium inventory from auto auctions thousands of miles outside their normal trading radius. Auto auctions in California, Arizona and Nevada, in particular, have become especially attractive to Midwest and Texas dealers looking for well-equipped late model vehicles, as well as hybrid SUVs and crossovers now entering the used car market for the first time.

ShipCarsNow is one of the few online auto transport companies to provide instant, online quotes for domestic and international auto shipping. Dealers and remarketers can register online to get the lowest price auto transport quotes, and place and track orders 24x7. ShipCarsNow has teamed up with AuctionACCESS® to provide faster registration and credit approval to dealers who sign up online with their AuctionACCESS ID number.  For more information, visit ShipCarsNow at booth 3416N at the NADA Convention & Expo or Dealers can map out their visit to the NADA Expo Hall ahead of time, as well as e-mail exhibitors.

In addition to providing auto dealers with easy and affordable auto shipping, ShipCarsNow is offering dealers free souvenir green-screen photos at its booth.
