As per the latest dealership notification, Bajaj Auto wishes to appoint Bajaj dealers in Maharashtra through online applications in Borivali, Mumbai and Panvel, which is located in Raigad District and is a node of Navi Mumbai. This is a wonderful opportunity for those seeking to join India's best motorcycle company. Those interested in setting up a Bajaj dealership elsewhere, too, can check out the details in this article about the requirements and application process.
How it works As a dealer, you will not be paying any deposit money to Bajaj Auto. On acceptance of your application for a dealership, you will be assigned a specific area, known as the command area, for the operation for sales and any service-related activities. No other dealer of the company will be allowed to do cross-selling in that area. The company will supply the vehicles only on the basis of the order and will send the required vehicles only on advance payment. The company does not give on credit. The dealership agreement with Bajaj Autor can be renewed after every two years.
The return on investment for the Bajaj dealership will be in the range of 18% to 24% per annum. This covers sales of the vehicles, workshop revenue and spare parts. You will also receive excellent support from Bajaj Auto. This will begin with the company providing the entire layout, drawings and interior designs for both, the showroom and for the workshop, these being as per the norms of the Bajaj dealership corporate identity. The company will give full training to the dealer, showroom staff and workshop technical staff. The sales team will also receive direct training from the company to know about the features of the vehicles, how to communicate with customers and handle the sales process.
