Choose a Car Buying Service
Many people feel stressed and uncomfortable when they buy a new car. Car buying services provides professional help and can save a lot of money if you choose carefully.
- Be aware that car buying services can also be called car brokers, motor brokers or auto brokers.
- Before engaging a car buying service, investigate their website and determine if it fits your needs. Can they offer advice on car selection? Do they handle your trade-in? Do they specialize in only new (or only used) cars?
- Look at the operating terms. Many services are free up front, while others charge a small fee. Most of them make their profits via a fee to the dealer when you buy the car. Make sure all the information is available on the website so you can make an informed decision.
- Once you decide on the car you want to buy, it is a good idea to do a price check with your local dealer. This will establish a baseline so you can compare to the price the car broker is achieving.
- Most services can arrange delivery of your new car to your home or office.
- Don't be afraid to ask for advice on car selection. Car buying services are not biased in the same way car dealers are. They can sell you any make of car.
