How Can I Start A Car Business?

I am calling on the tested, reliable & result-oriented dealers in the house to help out on this subject: How can I start a car business? What are the risks of importing cars from Cotonou? What are reliable USA websites I can deal with in car purchases? I want your candid advice on this subject.

This used to be "Promise 72". Just changed my screen name. Here's the link.

Here i go. Success is not a "spectator sport". What i will advise you is that if you wanna deal in cotonou, go there with someone who know the way around. On the first trip, DONT BUY ANYTHING! JUST LOOK!

You can go 2-3 times just to study the situation of things. Price etc. Hook up preferably with someone who will only charge you for going around with you and will arrange how it will get back here.

After 2-3 times, then buy one or two cars, see how it goes then you will become a pro yourself in the logistics of things. You will meet honest people and meet crooked ones too.

But all you can do is minimize ur risk by being attentive and careful. NOT BY STAYING IN YOUR FLAT AND SENDING SOMEONE!

Car business, like i have said requires your presence. Be ready to drive, travel, wait, be heartbroken, be angry, be happy among other things.

But you have to go there.

That's all for now. Let me know if you have any question.

Thank you for your sound advice but the problem I have with going to Cotonou is that you hardly can get honest people to deal with: These are the questions I have about Cotonou;

1) is it possible to go to the packs on your own and negotiate on the cars of your choice without inviting the Cotonou Agents first.

2) Can Cotonou agents add to the price of the car apart from the money you will pay to them for the clearing service?

3) In cotonou, we have heard about cases of people stealing items on the purchased cars, how can one curtail this.

I look forward to your answers on this subject promise, regards.

Perfect Buy answer is the apt response to the question; how to start a vehicle business.

Become a middleman and use the opportunity to understand the nitty gritty of vehicle busniess.

The adavange is that you have nothing to lose in terms of start-yp coat the business collapses and everything is it succeeds.

Why dont you play it safe and start as a middle man, with that you dont need any capital, all you just need to do is be a referral, find customer who need to buy KIA vehicles and when the purchase is made, you will be paid referral fees.
