The best dealership to buy a used car at is one that believes it is all about you – the client.
I know that probably sounds like an oxymoron!
Most of us have had experiences buying a new car where you left feeling like you were stupid and a low life.
I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t have to be that way anymore!
There are dealerships available in your area, dealerships that have a whole new way of buying and selling used cars.
It is called and auto consultant or auto broker, depending on what part of the country you live in.
These people are the experts and will take away the burden of buying a used car. They will handle all the details from finding the perfect car to finding the best financing available so that you save money as well as time.
Sounds terrific, right?
But how do you know a dealership is going to treat you like royalty?
That answer is really quite simple. Most of us have had the confrontational car buying experience, so you want to find a dealership that makes you feel the opposite of that.
Let’s face it…
Buying a new car is supposed to be an exciting time in your life! For most of us, it is the second largest purchase we will ever own and it should be fun.
I suggest you visit a few different dealerships in your area that classify themselves as auto consultants or auto brokers.
Pay attention to how you are greeted. Does it feel like you are taking part in a sneak attack, or are you able to casually walk into the building to speak with someone?
Obviously, the second scenario would be the most comfortable.
Remember, just because you walked through the doors of a dealership doesn’t mean that you are obligated to buy from them. And, if it doesn’t feel good, turn around and walk the other way.
If it feels like you just walked into a friend’s house, stay awhile and chat with one of the brokers.
Now, watch to see if the dealer asks you questions about what it is you are looking for. Compare this to someone who tells you they have the perfect car for you before you have even told them what you are interested in.
Ask them if they don’t have the vehicle you are looking for can they locate the vehicle you want? Ask them what resources they use to find cars.
Most auto consultants/brokers have many resources from which they purchase vehicles as well as the buying power to negotiate the best possible price.
Allow them to treat you like royalty by doing the finding and the haggling for the best price. Royalty hires others to do the work for them and you deserve this too!
By the way it usually doesn’t cost you any more to use a broker’s services.
Ask about the financing they have available. Again, because of their buying power most brokers have vast resources at their fingertips that will finance the best possible terms for your auto loan.
This is more work you don’t have to do.
It really is possible!
The best place to buy used cars is a dealership that cares about you and treats you like royalty.
It’s time to get excited and really have fun buying your next vehicle.
