By adding 74 dealers, General Motors has expanded its Business Elite program by 16% in its first year. This network of dealerships is equipped to meet the needs of commercial customers.

Launched in March 2013, the Business Elite program is designed to provide business customers with the industry’s best sales and service experience from the time they enter Chevrolet or GMC dealerships through the lifecycle of the purchased vehicles, says GM.

Chevrolet and GMC Business Elite dealers offer a team of sales consultants to help customers select the right vehicles for the job. They stock a diverse lineup of ready-for-sale commercial vehicles, says GM. Every Business Elite service department has the facilities, equipment and certified technicians to accommodate a business customer’s specific needs, including priority service, priority hours, round-the-clock towing, business financing and leasing options and business vehicle remarketing and no-hassle disposal.

“There is no one in the area anywhere close to their quality and willingness to go out of their way to meet my needs,” said Billy Jones, a customer of the Chevrolet Business Elite program. “They’ve delivered new vehicles to my house, and if I needed service on a warranty item, they actually came to my shop and picked up vehicles for me a few times when I just wasn’t able to get down there.”

Sales consultants at Business Elite dealerships can also help inform commercial customers of the benefits offered through GM’s Business Choice program for small businesses. Small businesses that purchase an eligible vehicle may qualify for a cash allowance for vehicle accessories or upfits, says GM.

Eligible vehicles include cargo, passenger and cutaway vans, chassis cabs and 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickups, according to GM. The Chevrolet City Express small cargo van and CNG bi-fuel capable pickups will also be included.
