Car Buying Negotiation Service

A good first place to look is at some online car-buying websites. These usually have inventory ranging from used and new cars, to used cars only, to former rental units coming out of a national rental car fleet.

Car-buying services typically help you get a better deal than you would on your own. Plus, these services can leverage the experience of its experts to negotiate for you, so you can skip the unnecessary stress of negotiating with a car sales professional.

You may already have access to a car-buying service through a membership with companies such as AAA, Costco or Consumer Reports. Your bank or credit union may also offer a car-buying service. For example, Chase has a partnership with TrueCar, a large car-buying service that partners with a number of highly recommended lenders and other companies. is an independent, advertising-supported publisher and comparison service. We are compensated in exchange for placement of sponsored products and, services, or by you clicking on certain links posted on our site. Therefore, this compensation may impact how, where and in what order products appear within listing categories, except where prohibited by law for our mortgage, home equity and other home lending products. Other factors, such as our own proprietary website rules and whether a product is offered in your area or at your self-selected credit score range can also impact how and where products appear on this site. While we strive to provide a wide range offers, Bankrate does not include information about every financial or credit product or service.

If you hate the idea of haggling with a dealer on the price tag to buy a new car, a car-buying service may be a solid alternative for you. You can browse online for cars from the comfort of your own home, and some car buying services might have ways to keep more money in your pocket.

Negotiation at dealerships can be intimidating. If the fear of a bad deal has scared you away from checking out dealer lots, a car-buying service can be a good option for you. There are two main types of car-buying services: concierge services and membership-based services.

Concierge services can help you negotiate the price tag of the car and make the car-buying process easier for you, such as delivering the car to your home or to a nearby center so you can test drive it before purchasing.

Though shoppers have the potential to save a good deal of money, not all car-buying services are alike, says Lauren Fix, founder of The Car Coach and Car Smarts and consumer auto expert. She says consumers need to know what the car-buying service stands to gain from these deals and if their goals are the same as yours.

Working with Carman Chris was the greatest car buying experience I had in my life! Everything went smooth and with no issues. The stress of buying a car was removed. I will never go into a car dealership again. Carman Chris is the way to go!!

Car-man Chris was exceptional to work with. He saved me a lot of time and money for the Jaguar I leased through him from Jaguar Ft Lauderdale. I received five-star service from the moment I contacted him, I highly recommend Chris if you are buying or leasing a car in South Florida.

I highly recommend Carman Chris for his service. He is professional, sweet and honest. Chris negotiated a good deal for me remotely since my local dealers wasn't able to match it. I took the train to South Florida and Chris kindly pick me up and took me to the dealer to finish the contract signing process! Not to mention he patiently answered tons of my questions and offered practical help/suggestions before I decided to hire him. Chris saved A LOT OF burden of work for me and saved me money! I would love to use Chris's service again if I ever want to buy another car!

Car Man Chris definitely took a lot of the stress out of the car buying process. Chris helped me not only obtain the vehicle optioned the way I wanted but also assisted in negotiating it for the price that I wanted as well. Standouts as part of my interactions were Chris' professionalism, expertise, and prompt follow up. In terms of services provided Chris did not stop at locating the car but participated in each step inclusive of when it came to sign on the dotted line providing insight into that process as well. I would definitely recommend to others looking to purchase a vehicle and would leverage Chris for my next purchase.

It's a no-brainer. Why go through the long pain filled process of buying or leasing a car when Chris has all the knowledge and experience to get us the car we want at the best possible price? Chris works for us!

Who enjoys the car buying process? Not me! I tried buying a car on my own a few months ago and had a horrible experience. My friends referred me to Carman Chris and he changed my opinion. Chris makes the car buying process so fast and easy. It only took Carman Chris a few minutes to locate the vehicle I wanted. He negotiated the price and saved me thousands of dollars compared to the price quoted to me by another dealer. His expertise is not just in negotiation, as he assisted with so many other facets of the process including the credit application, trade in, financing, insurance and delivery. Thank you Carman Chris!

While Costco and some credit unions work only with certain dealerships, many of these services partner with TrueCar. TrueCar is a digital automotive marketplace that connects its members with certified dealerships across the nation. Unfortunately, TrueCar has changed over the years and is now geared more toward lead generation. But these services can still provide you with discounted prices without you having to visit dealerships in person.

Full service includes a representative negotiating with multiple dealerships to find the best possible deal on a car you like. Authority Auto also offers a free deal review: A representative will look at your pending deal for free and let you know if you can get a better price.

Car-buying services can be a great option. You can browse available selections across multiple dealerships and get access to upfront discounted pricing in some cases. Additionally, you may be able to purchase the car entirely online and have it delivered to your door.

The flip side? "When I'm making a deal and I don't get what I want, it drives me crazy," said Weintraub, a former general sales manager at a top Ford dealer in the Los Angeles area. He started his concierge car-buying service after discovering that he would rather work for car buyers than be a dealer trying to maximize their profits. Now, Weintraub gets his fee from his clients, which he says is offset for the client by the low prices at which he can buy cars. He believes that the car broker's practice of getting a commission from the dealer is a conflict of interest.

While we could attempt to explain the process of negotiating, we thought it would be more helpful to eavesdrop on several real negotiations. Weintraub let us listen in on two car deals, and afterward, he gave us a play-by-play interpretation of his tactics and methods.

In the following car negotiation, notice how each side is trying to gain a commitment without giving up ground. Also, see how Weintraub lets the salesman know he is looking at several different cars to create a sense of urgency that will help him close the deal.

Instead, he waited until the next day, knowing it was the sales manager's day off. Then it would be appropriate to call the general manager directly. When the dealer returned his call, this is how the car negotiation went: 041b061a72
