What does it mean to be a "factory direct dealer"?
 
Hi all. I came across a dealer that has almost unbelievably good pricing, relative to other dealers. I called this dealer and they said they are a "factory direct dealer", which is how they have such good prices. Does anyone know what this means?

Thanks

Aren't all dealers factory direct?

i know some dealers have 2 prices for the public & it is the same part number

Like Steve White Motors has the regular price at his dealership parts department
there is another lower price if you buy the same part online at eBay
i have not looked to see if they also have add on charges for shipping & handling, etc.

my dealership gets all parts out of the factory warehouse in Los Angeles
the warehouse ships the part to the dealership & you go there to pick up the part at the Parts Department

If a dealership orders the part from the factory warehouse & it is sent directly to your address, maybe that would fall under the factory direct dealer label
