It is the dealers choice, however at this time BPS does have constraints as to the age and the amount of used boats in inventory right now...going into the fall season, we don't want to carry alot of used product. It pretty much is individual dealer policy, and Scott is correct, there is a problem getting financing on older units.
BPS is in the business to sell product and make money...not turn away prospective customers by "copping out."
We all have worked for companies that have policies and procedures that need to be followed.
Other BPS stores may be in a better position to take trades than St. Charles, which just opened up...have your friend check around.
