It can be very intimidating to visit a car agency. Research and knowledge can help you find the best rate. Use the advice offered below to help you with your car-shipping endeavors.
Salesmen are out to make money. It’s difficult to remember this when faced with a friendly, flattering broker. Also, avoid extras when negotiating your sales fee. Even bargain cars can increase by hundreds or thousands.
If you can, wait until the end of the month before transport a car. Salespeople need to meet some monthly goals and they will offer you a good rate if they need to generate more sales for their quotas. Begin the process of negotiating on rate two or three days before the month ends. This will give you time to make a wise decision and get a great quote.
Know that the initial counteroffer presented to you isn’t the lowest available fee. Make another offer and once they give the manager this, he will make the lowest available offer. They want to reach an agreement, thus they are likely to stop wasting time by then.
You need to be aware of any rebates the agent is offering. Rebates are a common promotional tool used to stimulate quick and easy sales. Some shipping company might try to pocket the rebate if you aren’t aware of it.
While it’s good to look sharp when going to ship a car, don’t dress too snazzy. You may have a hard time getting a good rate if you give the appearance of having money to burn.
When it comes to shipping a new vehicle, it can be fun, stressful and expensive all at the same time. If you are educated about car transporting, it can be a fun experience. Remember the information you have gleaned from the article above, and you will be prepared to get the most out of your experience.
