You should enjoy your car shipping experience. Driving it once you own it is fun, after all. Many think this process has to be stressful, but it doesn’t. Keep the stress to a minimum using these tips.
You can save a lot by negotiating and asking a rate lower than what your salesperson first offers. It is never smart to pay sticker fee on a car. Those prices are inflated on purpose to leave room to negotiate with the customer, so take advantage of that.
Research both your car and your representative before negotiations. When you know what they typically offer, you can use it to your advantage. Additionally, read customer reviews to see how satisfied others have been with the car.
Don’t take it for granted that the sticker fee is the lowest you’ll pay. The representative does not expect anyone to pay the sticker fee. If you lack assertiveness, bring along someone who is comfortable with negotiating. Make sure you research the car you are interested in first, however, so you have some idea of what to offer.
Do not bring your fancy car to the company. If the staff see that car, they’ll think you’re made of money. Borrow a car if you have to.
You don’t have to dispatch from a representative. It may surprise you to learn that your ideal car can be purchased from a private seller or even a small car lot. Make sure you scan the local papers and social networking sites so you’re able to make your search as effective as possible.
Many cringe at the idea of car transporting, but now you know that it doesn’t need to be an overly stressful event. You can do several things to give yourself a more positive experience. Just use what you’ve learned here to make car transporting a positive experience.
