While new cars are a lot of fun, everyone is not enthused about the transporting process. In order to make your experience a positive one, you need some information. The advice shared here can get you started on the right track.
Never allow a car salesmen to pressure you to shipping a car you can’t afford. A lot of current sports car owners were smoothly talked into one by a agent who convinced them that they would look great driving it. Remember that the salesperson is trying to make a fair commission, so selling expensive vehicles can help them.
During negotiations, concentrate on the total rate instead of the monthly rate. You may get a great monthly rate, but if you’re paying that rate for many years, your new vehicle is going to end up costing a lot more than it’s worth. You should instead focus on negotiating the best quote on the overall rate of the car and the financing you get. Then you can figure out what the monthly payment you can afford is.
Bring in an impartial mechanic before shipping used. If your company does not want to do this, turn around and go somewhere else. You need a mechanic to give you an objective opinion about the car’s condition and check for damages, submersion in water or other problems some agents try to hide.
Don’t take it for granted that the sticker rate is the lowest you’ll pay. No broker truly expects you to pay exactly what they ask. If you do not feel comfortable with your negotiating techniques, bring a friend with you who is. You need to know what a decent fee is going to be before you go so that you have a good idea of what you should pay.
