Minimize or eliminate costly expenditures for replacement parts and repairs, roadside support, and protect investments.
Service plans support your dealership’s service department, help keep your vehicles on the road, and promote your dealership.
We carefully examine your company’s current F&I products and related services, staff training methods, recent history of outcomes, and goals the company intends to accomplish. Our observations help tailor a strategy specifically for your company.
Once we understand the status and direction for your organization, we examine several solutions based on the current and most effective industry practices. We present our recommendations, find remedies that fit best, and plan the implementation.
It is common for transitions to occur while companies maintain their daily operation. Our process ensures minimal disruption while maintaining the standards of training. Our objective is a smooth transition toward implementation to reduce slowing or interruptions in service.
Mid-South Dealer Services is a client development organization. We provide dealerships with on-site training, and coaching in a wide-range of F&I products and services. We offer a complete line of dealer insurance, warranties, service contracts, reinsurance set-up and administration, pre-paid maintenance, and gap protection options, GPS inventory management, DMS and CRM software, and much more.
The majority of over 150 dealers who completed the F&I Magazine* survey revealed that overall gross margins in 2018 were flat from the prior year, yet sales for F&I products were up more than 10%. In fact, 35% of dealers said their 2018 gross margins were unchanged compared to 2017 figures.
This is important because a simple calculation proves that service and warranty options can save customers money. Vehicles remain on the road longer, and in better condition proving reliability in your dealership. Service departments benefit with prompt turn-around times, and consistent revenue streams.

Barry and I formed a business relationship about 15 years ago while I was a finance manager, offering his products to our customers in the finance office. I am now the General Manager/Managing Partner of a multi franchise dealership and Barry is still partnered with us and assists us every day in making F&I GREAT!!! His professional and friendly business approach and commitment to us on a daily basis has helped my finance department obtain an average of $1650 - $1800 per copy every month. Barry is a true professional and a true “car guy”, his performance does the talking and he isn’t afraid to jump in the saddle and deliver a deal to truly showcase his abilities. I recommend Barry and his services to any dealer looking to take their finance department to the next level and beyond.
I have known Barry for over 10 years. Barry has a lot of knowledge in his field and goes out of his way to meet the needs of his clients. I would recommend Barry to anyone who is looking for his products for their business.
Wow!!! That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think of Barry! Whenever I call, text, email… no matter where he is or what he is doing, he treats me as if I am his only client and am his only priority. That is TRUTH. I’ve known and done business with Barry for almost 20 years and he has treated me the same in year 20 as he was in year 1! First class products for F & I programs and the diligence Barry takes investigating a product before offering to you and ultimately your customer is second to NONE!! With Barry and Mid-South Dealer Services; you can be totally confident that what you offer your customer is at the highest standard of coverage available.
I have known and worked with Barry for over 10 years. Barry is an asset to his dealers and brings an expertise that is highly valued in our industry. He delivers tremendous customer service, is straightforward and honest, and determined to increase F&I profits.
I have had the pleasure of working with Barry Buckley since 1997. He has always been the most efficient representative I've had from any source. His promptness and attention to detail are what make him such an outstanding individual. Bud Davis Cadillac switched to MSDS programs exclusively in 2013, since then, our per copy average went from $1154/copy to $1421/copy. Moreover, we are currently over $1620/copy. The confidence MSDS programs and brands make their coverage so appealing to our luxury line customers. I highly recommend Barry and his products for any dealership
