Save Time and Money by Hiring a Pro
What can you offer people who use your services?
It's very time-consuming for people to buy a car. So much is at stake. If you spent $4,000 more on a car that you didn't have to, where could that money go? I knew that there was a tremendous need for people to have someone like me look out for their best interests.
How much do you charge for your service?
Our fee depends on the price of the car you are buying. And then we have a different service for people who have already shopped and have numbers that want us to improve the deal. In that case we charge a percentage of the amount of money we are able to save you.
Can you give me an example of a deal you worked on recently?
A client was negotiating a deal for a BMW and she didn't like who she was dealing with at the dealership. She presented us the deal she negotiated, and we saved her over $6,000.
How did you do that?
They had inflated the purchase price and the price of the back-end products she wanted.
What is the difference between what you do and a car broker?
We're really more like a concierge service since we get the fee from the client. Buying a car is as easy as ordering takeout. You call us, you tell us what you want and it's done. Most of the time, the car will be delivered to you at your home or office.
Do you recommend having cars delivered to your clients?
Most of the time we can have cars delivered along with the contract for you to sign. We do have clients that either want the experience at the dealership, or some dealerships just won't deliver. So as part of our process to eliminate any mistakes, we review all contracts so when the client goes there for the golden moment, there are no surprises.
When you were a dealer, did you have much to do with car brokers?
I had dealt with many car brokers at Vista Ford, and I've seen many car brokers take advantage of their clients because their commission was not disclosed.
Where do most people go wrong in car deals?
The first place people really go wrong is making an impulse decision. You know, they go to the dealership and fall under the ether of the excitement.
If you're getting a Camry or an Accord, you're going to be able to get it pretty much at invoice or sometimes less.
We're always trying to beat the invoice.
