Why Pay a Small Fee and Choose Deal Hitmen Over a Dealer

From Derek and Nick

Time spent, overload. Dealership’s goal is to get you “in”, only to spend hours or even days, to convince you of a product or deal. Not all are bad, but the process is broken… even when you get the best answer, “best price”, best etc., is it really?

You work long hours. Dealers are open excessively late. Cars are not quick and easy cash transactions at a register. Colors, options, accessories, trade in or not, lease or purchase, custom order, locate or take in stock… you may think you can go in “after work” but you will end up wasting an evening with an already tired and not always helpful associate in need of commission.
“Am I getting the best deal?” You never know, as too many websites, promotions, your relatives or co-workers tell you otherwise. Click one button and five dealers, four of which are nowhere close to home, start calling you. Confusion sets in as one that may sound like a better deal to save $200 (but you have to drive 20 more miles) could end up costing you more in time spent, mileage, and lack of service benefits down the road.
Dealers are not all bad people… the “process”, adopted shopping sites, and ways of business make them seem so. The simple question “how much is the lease payment?” always turns into a game. Your dealer gives you a great number, but how can they trust you won’t call another dealer 30 minutes away and “shop them”?
In an internet, app, click world… buying most things is easy. Cars are not. You drive them, depend on them, load them with kids and cargo, and drive across country. They need maintenance, they need upkeep, they have widely varied performance and capabilities. How can your days, weeks, or even months of online research and two test drives of two models really tell you there wasn’t a third option you should have bought instead?
You’ve made a decision… picked a color, ordered the options, and scheduled delivery. Now two more hours with “the finance guy”? Confusion sets in, costs balloon, coverages you may or may not have use for get added. Some can be very beneficial to you, but how would you know ahead of time?
If one website told you MSRP… another cost… but your brother swears his “guy at the other store works magic”… Who do you believe, who do you trust? Dealers are in business and like any business, have vastly varied levels of employee knowledge.
Busy life, always at the office, but the dealer is open until 9pm? Do not go! Why can’t the new cars come to you? Why can’t test drives be on your time, at your office, when you want? Most dealers will only allow this after you’re 95% committed to their product. But how could you be if you’ve yet to experience it more than 5 minutes around the block?
Do I trade? Do I pay cash? Do I lease? Dealers, due to their tough business model, will try to convince you to use the method that works best for them instead of the one that works best for you. Want a second opinion from a knowledgable source? Hard to find.
Life is to be lived — not in a dealer showroom. Not on your one day off, not 4-5 hours of a Saturday, not in a busy dealer showroom waiting for an inexperienced new product specialist to work with three managers and maybe give you a payment or find the right color. Skip the hassle and let best recommendations be made based on your preferences with the financial, delivery, and other details completed while you live.
Kickbacks? Volume incentives? Is that color they’re suggesting really a good deal or the old demo that’s been sitting 10 months because nobody wants it? Online research can only tell you so much.
In an Amazon Prime/Netflix world, we click the button and great things happen… and we can read endless reviews and do price comparisons in a click. Cars? Not so much. Despite so many websites promising this, it is a complicated transaction, and NONE do anything more than sell. Dealers pay thousands of dollars for your phone, email and address so they can start calling you and restart a process you thought you could complete “because Truecar said I was done.”
You’ve had 3 of the same models back to back, for the last decade. The dealer is close and you know the maintenance. But what if there was a new brand, model, or dealer even closer to home or work you never thought of and could make your daily drive exciting? Experts vs. “the guy who sold me the last 2-3 of these” can open up possibilities. Dealers do not have the time to do this.
You are a number. You build your dream car online. It gives you financing or lease ideas. You click “Submit!” Nothing happens. Phone calls and emails barrage your inbox, all of which say “when can you come in?” or “we beat everyone’s deal!” Didn’t you already skip this step? Unfortunately, in online vs. dealer world, you never can without an expert orchestrating the details for you. You, that guy down the street, and the lady from 4 states away are all just numbers a dealer has to work on closing with old school methods instead responding to your specific request.
Service costs? “We have some of the most reliable products in the industry, and look how incredible our service drive with Starbucks looks!” The dealers goal is to sell you on their entire process, brand and building, and avoid what may be a later surprise. A $400 oil change, runflat tires that wear out in a year… how would you know? Brand and model reputations go far beyond what you can just read online or see in the manicured new showroom.
Dealers offer apps, text messaging, and fancy websites to draw you in. Then their staff cannot use the tools or respond to your questions effectively. You go to another dealer, and it’s better, but still missing. 3rd, 4th, 5th… all for the same model. You finally give in, 2-3 weeks or a month later, tired and exhausted of this “easy” process lacking clear answers. What if one expert could eliminate all of this and work with only the best from day one, just for you?
Time. Even the most efficient dealers can suck a day or more from your life, sticking to a “process.” They need you, you do not need them. Can’t it be easier?
