How do we get signed up with Carolina Finance, LLC?

We primarily get most of our business from Franchise dealers due to the type of lower mileage/late model vehicles we normally finance. With that said, we do have a good mix of well established Independents that we do business with in each of our markets that carry a good mix of inventory. We are not limited to lower mileage/late model vehicles, but we are more selective on higher mileage units.
