Great Dealer Websites: Joe Basil Chevrolet

This is a new spot that we put in our Commercial Truck Success IdeaLetter where we share great dealer commercial truck websites that we find or are sent to us. Since we also build websites for commercial dealers, we are always looking for those who stand out ahead in website thinking.

The spotlight this time is on Joe Basil Chevrolet Commercial Trucks in Depew, New York (near Buffalo).

Here are some things we liked about the site:
  • They chose a great domain name: BasilTrucks.com
  • This is a separate website from the retail store. Huge! Great job.
  • Good search engine ranking.
  • Contact Us page has photos, phone numbers, including cell number and email. (Do we really wear suits to sell commercial trucks?)
  • Nice header and relatively easy to navigate.
  • Address and toll free number in header on every page!
  • Under Specials tab they have a featured truck, weekly ad and a large closeout sale spread. Nice job.
  • Photos of trucks can enlarge and show good detail. Great job! Some even have multiple photos in a slide show.
  • Under Vehicles tab, a sub-tab called Search Commercial opens a page with photos of various truck types with bodies to click on taking you to that section. Nice.
  • Also under Vehicles tab is a sub-tab on Pre-Owned. We love used commercial trucks!
  • Hours of operation and map with direction are in a link at the top of the page no matter what page you are on.
  • There is some great links under the tab GM Tools.
  • Also great links all over the home page.

This is an excellent site and the really important things are there. Great job Joe Basil Chevrolet Commercial Trucks!
