Ticket Price: Negotiating More Than Just A Car

    Posted by Ben Davidson about 9 months ago
    Buying a car isn’t like it used to be. In the past, when you would go for this sort of transaction, it would be a simple matter of paying for the motor and driving out of the showroom. With times changing and the roads becoming more populated, the needs of drivers has changed dramatically over the last century. Manufacturers are having to be increasingly competitive, and will offer new deals all the time. Of course, though, getting your hands on these deals isn’t always the easiest process. To help you out with this, this post will be exploring some of the best extras to fight for, along with some tips to help you to achieve this goal.

    Warranties: Manufacturer faults occur surprisingly often in cars. Given the complexity of these machines, it makes sense that they can suffer from breakages quite often, but you shouldn’t have to pay for this when it isn’t your fault. A warranty can cover this, and will often be something you are entitled to with your purchase. Salesmen may not be open about this if it can save their dealership money, though, and you may have to ask them about it directly.

    Repair/Accident Assistance: Of course, having repair costs covered is only any good if you’re able to get someone to help you when something goes wrong. A lot of garages are partnered with roadside and repair companies, with examples like Drive Vauxhall Accident Repair and AMG Auto Centers being perfect for those with particularly complex cars. You may have to ask for this to be included in your agreement, even if it is free.

    Freebies: There will be loads of other freebies which a salesmen will be able to give you to entice a purchase. Floor mats, extra features, and premium paint jobs are all things which you can avoid having to pay for. For things like this, you will be restricted to promotions and deals which are currently running, making calling ahead worthwhile when you’re figuring out what could be available.

    Getting What You Want: Negotiating with someone who spends each and every day selling things isn’t an easy process. They will know how to steer you towards what they want, and it could be hard to know what is available to you. To make this easier, it’s worth being confident and simply asking what they have on offer. Most garages won’t lie to you if you ask them about something. Instead, they may just not explicitly tell you that things are there until you enquire. There are loads of guides around the web which can teach you about the tactics the salesmen will use.

    Hopefully, this post will inspire you to start working harder on the time you put into your next car purchase. There are loads of ways to get freebies when you’re looking at items like this, especially if you’re buying your car new. Along with this, it could also be worth trying to negotiate a reduced price, as most dealerships will have a minimum price for each sale which they won’t make known.
