Online Shopping Taken to The Next Level
Nowadays, if you want to buy something, one of the first things you do is go online to do a little comparison shopping. The internet has changed the way in which we buy the things we need, so why shouldn’t it also be used to shop for a new or used car? There are plenty of resources out there to help you do that, a few of which we will talk about here, but there is still some legwork to be done after you have used those tools. At Auto Smart Offer, it is our goal to make the car buying experience as painless, and inexpensive, as possible.
Before we talk about what we do, let’s first talk about what the average car buyer needs to do when buying a new or used car. It all begins by deciding which car to go with, which is usually dependent on how much you have in your budget. Let’s imagine for a moment that your specific budget can get you a nice compact sedan. The problem that you are immediately going to face is deciding which of the many vehicles in that segment are the best. It is here where your hard work begins.
There are great websites out there, such as Edmunds and Kelley Blue Book, that help you take a closer look at each model and brand, while also allowing you to do a side by side comparison. What you will find is that some models offer better value for your money than others, which is the first step in narrowing down your options. Even when you get it down to a single model, you are going to need to choose from the different trim levels that are available, which means settling on which features you cannot live without.
Once you have settled on the car you want, the next thing you need to do is start visiting showrooms to see where you can get the best price. It is here where the car buying experience usually takes a turn for the worse. No-one likes dealing with car salespeople, but they accept it as part of the process. The buying process is something that is starting to change, though, with many dealerships looking to keep the customer happy by going to a zero commissions sales model, which is where we come into the picture. We want to flip the script a little and have the dealers bring their business to you.
When you arrive at our website, you will be prompted to fill out some details about the type of car that you are after. When that information is in, it is then sent off to the dealerships in our network, and they then come back to you with their best offer. You then have the luxury of looking at each of those offers to decide which is best for you. It may be a model at a lower price, or perhaps a gently used higher trim level that comes in at below your budget. Either way, you end up a winner, as you get the car you want at the right price, and all without the messy haggling that no-one enjoys.
