Dealers who do not invest in high-quality photos of their inventory can suffer significant sales consequences. Here are some of the negative impacts that poor car photos can have on a dealership’s sales:
Reduced online engagement: Poor car photos can make potential buyers less likely to click on and view a dealership’s online listings. This is because consumers are more likely to be drawn to listings with high-quality, visually appealing images.
Decreased trust and credibility: Poor car photos can make a dealership appear unprofessional and untrustworthy. This is because consumers may perceive that the dealership is not taking the sale of its vehicles seriously if it is not investing in quality photography.
Increased time to sell: Poor car photos can make it take longer for a dealership to sell its vehicles. This is because potential buyers may not be interested in a vehicle if they cannot see it clearly and from multiple angles.
Higher returns and customer dissatisfaction: Poor car photos can lead to more returns and customer dissatisfaction. This is because consumers may be disappointed with the condition of the vehicle when they see it in person after only seeing poor-quality photos online.
Reduced brand perception: Poor car photos can damage a dealership’s brand perception. This is because consumers may associate the dealership with being unprofessional and not having high-quality vehicles.
Studies have shown that high-quality photos can significantly increase car sales. For example, a study by AutoTrader found that dealerships that use high-quality photos sell their cars 20% faster than dealerships that use poor-quality photos. Another study by Cars.com found that 70% of car buyers said that high-quality photos are the most important factor when considering a car purchase.
In addition to the negative sales impacts, poor car photos can also lead to increased costs for dealerships. This is because dealerships may have to spend more money on marketing and advertising to compensate for the poor quality of their photos. Dealerships may also have to spend more time dealing with returns and customer dissatisfaction.
Overall, it is clear that high-quality photos are essential for any dealership that wants to be successful. Dealerships that invest in professional photography will be able to sell more cars, build trust with their customers, and improve their brand perception.

I’m interested in selling vehicles online, and I need the best representation for my brand and customers in the dealership to achieve that.
In the examples below, the top photos have the best lighting, sharpness, and flooring for selling vehicles online.
The top photo has more even lighting than the bottom photo. The bottom photo has some dark shadows in the corners, which can make the vehicle look less appealing.
The top photo is also sharper than the bottom photo. The bottom photo is slightly blurry, which can make the vehicle look less detailed.
The flooring in the top photo is more neutral and inviting than the flooring in the bottom photo. The bottom photo has a busy pattern that can distract from the vehicle.
Overall, the top photos are the better representation of your brand and dealership. They have even lighting, sharp focus, and neutral flooring. This will make your vehicles look their best and attract more potential buyers.
High-quality photos of your vehicles will help you sell them more quickly, build trust with your customers, and sell for higher prices.
Okay, so for whatever reason, you can’t get a forklift. I have a solution. Call us. Do NOT dismantle the studio on the truck and bring it into the space. The plastic is very fragile, and it will gouge, and I’ll have to install a beautiful studio with gouged plastic.
Call us, and I’ll walk you through the process. It’s super easy, but you will need, like, four large dudes–or humans. Women can do it, too! Call us. I’ll explain how to do it.
So, you can get it off without a forklift, but I don’t recommend it.
Okay, so you’ve purchased a 360Booth. It’s being installed today, and the question arises, “Where do I store the studio?”
Typically, you put it in the space. More often than not, the studio space that you have for the studio is too small, and my guys have to literally manhandle the pallet outside of the room to another room, so they can start the installation.
The best place to store your studio when it’s delivered, before installation, is close to the studio space but outside the perimeter of the circle.
So. Where do you store your studio? In a dry, warm climate, first of all. Not outside. Next to the space of the install, outside of the studio ring, or diameter.
