Floor Plan Financing Floor Plan 101 A floor plan is comprised of the following: • Line of Credit Amount : Credit approved amount for dealer to finance. • Rate: Interest rate charged on the active line of credit. • Term: Length of time a unit can be floorplanned. • Fee: The charge associated with the flooring of the unit. • Reduction amount: principal reduction amount made by the dealer as vehicle ages past the purchase date. All of the above are factors determined through the Credit and Lending process. • For example, the greater the credit risk, the lower the line of credit. • Also, a longer fee may correspond to an increased rate.
Floor Plan Financing Value of Floor Planning for the Dealer
Floor Plan Financing Ever heard the term… “I was so successful selling cars that I went out of business.” Why does that happen?
Floor Plan Financing Value of Floor Planning for the Dealer It happens because every time a dealer sells a car, they are out of pocket that money until they are paid by the customer’s lender, which can take weeks The more cars a dealer sells, the more cash flow he needs
Floor Plan Financing Value of Floor Planning for the Dealer • Assume the average cash deal is $7,000 and average sales are 8 cars per week • Each week, the cash flow needs are $56,000 ($7,000 x 8) just for inventory • If the customer’s lenders don’t pay for two weeks after the sale, the dealer will need $112,000 in cash ($7,000 x 8 x2) in their business just to cover cars, not to mention payroll and other expenses
Floor Plan Financing Value of Floor Planning for the Dealer • If the dealer successfully grows his sales to 10 cars per week, they would need $140,000 in cash ($7,000 x 10 x2) • That is another $28,000 for selling two more cars per week • That is why growing sales takes money!
