WELCOME TO SOAR

We transform the way smaller dealer groups engage in the lucrative export market. Many dealerships, constrained by their size or resources, often miss out on substantial profits by limiting themselves to local wholesalers or auction sales. This is where SOAR comes in.

WHAT WE DO

We specialize in bridging the gap for dealer groups who wouldn’t typically build their own export division or access a full-time export expert. Instead of settling for less, imagine joining a coalition that leverages world-class leadership and expertise, specifically designed to unlock thousands of potential profit per vehicle.

With over three decades of hands-on experience in automotive sales and export, I’ve navigated every twist and turn of dealership hierarchy. My deep understanding of these nuances allows us to tailor solutions that fit seamlessly into your operations. 

At SOAR, our mission is clear: to unite multiple dealer groups, and provide unparalleled export leadership, turning your untapped potential into tangible profits.

MARKET OPPORTUNITY

Unlocking the US Market: A Growing Opportunity for Canadian Dealers

In 2023, the export of vehicles from Canada to the USA surged to 305,916 units, generating over $15 billion in trade value—a notable 4.5% increase from the previous year. This growth starkly contrasts with the receding North American domestic markets, presenting a lucrative opportunity for Canadian dealers to expand their reach.

As negative equity loans on trades become increasingly prevalent, the ability to offer higher trade-in values can set dealers apart, allowing them to capture greater market share and bolster new car sales. This strategic positioning not only enhances relationships with OEMs but also leverages the robust demand in the US, where supply constraints make Canadian exports particularly attractive.

The ongoing issue of negative equity on vehicle trades in both Canada and the US further underscores the value of cross-border sales. Despite the downward pressure on vehicle values, the disparity in trade dynamics between the two markets creates substantial arbitrage opportunities. 

Canadian dealers can exploit these opportunities to their advantage, whether in favorable or challenging economic conditions. The model remains resilient, offering profit potential through strategic vehicle exports.

While currency volatility and global political events pose potential risks to this market, the current stability of the exchange rate supports a favorable environment for cross-border trade. 

By partnering with SOAR, Canadian dealers can navigate these complexities with expert guidance and capitalize on the growing demand in the US market.  

Now is the perfect time to explore these opportunities and expand your dealership’s reach through SOAR's comprehensive services and extensive network.

I first started doing business with Bob over 20 years ago. We got to know each other while we were both doing automotive wholesale. A few domains, like the vehicle wholesale vehicle trade, give you a deep insight into a person's character. Bob's insight into the car business and the people in it, on an international level, prove that he can recognize undercurrents and patterns that aren't visible to most.

Bob reached out to us with an ambitious plan to introduce previously Canadian vehicles into the Atlanta market, an area with very little Canadian presence at the time. Despite the challenges, we decided to give it a shot. A couple of weeks later, Bob arrived with over 100 units and quickly made a significant impact. Though initially unknown in this region, Bob's name soon became well-recognized across Georgia, Alabama, and the Carolinas.
