During the last time you were at a agent looking a car, did you feel lost and confused by all the information? With some carefully chosen words of wisdom, however, you may find that the process isn’t so difficult to survive. Using the advice in the following piece will help make shipping a car a cinch.
Get your financing set up before you visit a agency. You should do this through your bank. They will offer you lower interest rates if you show up in person, plus you can use their offers to bargain with the agent, too.
When car shipping, plan to be in the company for awhile. The only way to come to a decision that you are comfortable with is to take your time. Leaving a whole afternoon open is best. If you don’t have time, don’t fear leaving and returning another time.
If you know you are easily convinced by salespeople, you should not go transporting a new car by yourself. Bring a relative or friend along to help negotiate prices and remember important questions. Tell them exactly what you’re looking to ship and how much you have to spend before you go.
You don’t have to ship from a agent. You may be able to find what you want from a private seller or a smaller agent. So before heading out to a lot, go pick up some classifieds, read up on Craigslist, and check other venues to see if you can find a good quote.
Ship for your new car near the month’s end. Many salesmen have to meet a quota at this time so they are much more likely to give you a better rate. Some salespeople want to make a rate because they are desperate to meet their monthly goal.
