In fact, there are thousands and thousands of used cars out there every day waiting to be sold by private owners, (with these owners often frustrated at not being able to find a private buyer), and thousands of dealers throughout the country who are desperate to source cars every day to fulfil their business sales targets, as good-quality second-hand / used cars are their 'bread and butter'.
How do dealers find cars to sell? You might think it's only the big car dealership chains who make all the money when cars are bought and sold. But nothing could be further from the truth.
Just remember, dealers are always in need of stock, and they usually get this from three principle sources:
1) Auctions, 2) Trade In's, or 3) Other Dealers
But if they can find someone who can source them good quality used cars of the right specification, colour, mileage, owners, condition etc that will sell well off their forecourts, then they will be happy to pay you a good commission to help them obtain these.
As a result, car broking has become a proven vehicle sourcing business opportunity, with brokers identifying and sourcing cars from private individuals looking to sell, and then finding buyers for these vehicles either within the motor trade, or to other individuals.
The opportunities for earning good commissions from car broking are only limited by your own ambition. But like anything worthwhile in life, you've got to know what you’re doing, or you could miss out on some good potential commissions.
