St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 09, 2013 Wildwood Insurance Services, Inc., a provider of online auto insurance as well as home, health, life and business insurance, announces the launch of a new program designed specifically for auto dealers.
According to Julie Hobart, general manager of Wildwood Insurance Services, Inc., the auto industry has been one of the hardest hit in this worldwide economic slowdown. The auto industry was a major focus for many of the government actions that were taken to prevent the economy from slipping into a depression.
As a result of the recession, Hobart says auto dealers were forced to find additional sources of revenue and most have found it in the F&I department aftermarket products. Wildwood Insurances Services’ new program makes it possible for dealers to offer the final missing component to their total auto care package. The company sets the dealer up to offer property insurance and online auto insurance. They provide a turnkey package that allows the dealer to sell auto only, auto and home or all lines of insurance. Wildwood Insurance Services provides 24/7 back office support, training, access to a multitude of competitive top rated online auto insurance carriers, technology, website design and marketing support.
In addition to the F&I department, the dealer will see an increase in revenue in the body shop and service departments – primarily because the online auto insurance agent is always the first person contacted in the event of an accident. Combining the increased revenue in the F&I, body shop and service department, the dealer should see substantial revenue increases.
Therefore, if a dealer wants to increase revenues, expand services, improve customer satisfaction and retention, he will like this program. It is just as beneficial to the customer as it is to the dealer. The customer should save money on their auto insurance, and all services and repairs will meet manufacturer’s specifications.
Wildwood Insurance Services was established in 1964 by Wayne L. Smith incorporated in 1983.
