Do you consider yourself an outdoor adventurer? Well, then Toyota of Clermont has exciting news for you. Toyota has a new partnership with Yakima car racks! This means Toyota customers can directly purchase their car accessories nationwide from participating dealerships.

For those of you who don’t know, Yakima is a well-known and trusted outdoor gear company that has long provided Toyota owners with top-of-the-line outdoor car accessories. Bike racks, ski racks, boat mounts, cargo boxes, cargo management, you name it, Yakima has it. The partnership gives Clermont customers new opportunities to add adventurous touches to their set of wheels and give them the option of including outdoor gear into their new vehicle financing.

Purchasing car accessories made easy

The idea for the partnership stemmed from research done by SEMA on Toyota drivers’ accessory purchasing habits. The research found 90 percent of car buyers will purchase add-ons and 60 percent of these consumers will spend at least $1,500 on the additions. Plus, the bulk of car accessories are bought within the first 90 days of vehicle purchase. SEMA also found that most people prefer to purchase add-ons at the dealership but typically don’t due to a lack of availability. Toyota fixed these problems with the new partnership.

Now owners can make their purchase when and where they want as well as have the best financing options possible. Yakima CEO, Ryan Martin, summed up the partnership well saying, “integrating Yakima products into the Toyota purchasing process is a natural step, making it simpler than ever for people to maximize their lifestyle with their Toyota.”
