    Need a new car? I'm working as a car broker. I can optimize the process and help save big money.

    Before i get started, i wanna mention that i conferred with ragns via PM on where to put this. It's a little tricky cause its work but i'm not really selling anything. If mods feel like it should be in b/s/t then i apologize for the inconvenience if thread needs to be moved.

    TLDR at the bottom, btw.



    OK, SO. I started working for a car broker a few weeks ago. For anyone who doesn't know what that is, a broker is essentially a car wholesaler/consultant who streamlines the process of buying (or leasing) a car. They look to find dealerships who will not just sell the car at cost, but ideally take a loss on their end, so the broker can save the client as much as possible.

    And beyond that? A broker is a handler who does all the legwork. All the stuff you'd have to do if you walked in to a dealer to negotiate, is the stuff a broker does. If you've ever bought a car before, it can be painful in terms of time spent and haggling. We cut through all of that and optimize the entire thing by striking their floor price as fast as possible. Then we look to provide you as much information as we can so you can be as educated as possible during the process. Also i'm not sure what other brokers do, but my company delivers.

    From the broker side, we have a license to negotiate these wholesale deals directly with a dealership's fleet manager. So we basically just hit up whatever dealer is willing to take the biggest price reduction on their end to make a beneficial sale on ours.

    How's the rest of the process go? We figure out what car you want, what your budget is, call the dealers to see what they're offering for said car. If they got what you want, we run your credit, and if the dealer approves it then we get your final say before bringing the car to you. If you're local (los angeles) then we can set you up on test drives if you want. If you're not, you'd have to test drive on your own which is no big deal. And wherever you are we can ship.

    What happens for someone who's interested? Do they have to commit to anything, or pay anything?

    Nah. No payments, no commitments, no contracts to sign. Just tell me what you want and we go from there. Only thing I ask is you know how ready you are to buy, but if you wanna just hear some ballparks we can always do that. Other that, if you wanna proceed then I help you find the car, show you the normal MSRP and then find out what the expected broker price is so you get to see the difference for yourself. If you're good with everything to that point, then we just check the credit, and if dealer approves then you give final say. If it's not as strong as what they're looking for, they'll adjust the price and hopefully it's still in your range. Otherwise it's all good and we keep looking to find something that works for you.

    BTW, You don't pay anything to anyone besides the dealer. Our brokerage gets paid a pre-determined fee by the dealership for facilitating the sale. So if someone hits me up and i help them for a week but in the end you decide it's not what you're looking for, or the timing isn't looking great anymore? Cool, maybe next time. You just get back to me later on if you still want my help, and i go home and watch tv or play games lol

    As far as my own experiences, my sister recently got a new car from the car broker and also just got my aunt a new Lexus. My aunt saved like 7k+ off of sticker price and my sister saved a substantial amount too. They barely spent any time at the dealer and had the cars delivered to their houses once their credit was approved and the dealers made the offers.

    Anyway because my sister knows the guy well, we were introduced and he offered me the chance to work and learn under him. As for the rest, it's basically up to me to find people who need a new car and that's why i'm here.


    Whew. Sorry, if that was long. Part of why i'm posting here is because i've been asked to get a lot of this stuff down in writing and i'm also trying to get this stuff manageable so we can get it up on the site. But yeah, if anyone's interested at all, feel free to post, send me a PM, email, whatever you want. And of course ask any questions you'd like answered.

    Since site's not really polished, i won't put it here but if it's within the rules i can put the yelp up. Or PM to whoever wants if i can't post it. just lemme know

    And of course the TLDR

    TLDR:

    we're car wholesalers that try to save you a ton of money.
    we cut out the shitty dealership buying experience
    we find the car you want and can deliver to you
    if you don't find anything t doesn't cost you anything anyway cause there's no commitments


    thanks!

    I figure it'd be good for me to do some Q/A posts because each experience is a little unique and at least i can try to add on what i didn't originally put in my first post. And of course if anyone has questions feel free to post them for me to answer.

    Q: What brands can I get?

    A: Almost any brand. For example, Tesla we can't get you but we have a contact if you need someone to speak to. Otherwise we have contacts for most brands to make deals.

    Q: How much can I save?

    A: Ok, so this is brand dependent and model dependent. One thing i've learned is that domestic doesn't have a lot of wiggle room. If you want a Ford or Chevy, there's not a lot of hit they will be willing to take. If you want a Honda or Lexus, you can ratchet up some real discounts. Going back to Ford, if you want an F250 Lariat, there's not much room there while an XLT they will be more willing to offer more incentives. Also, I've been helping 3+ people with Subaru over the past month and that's another brand in particular that doesn't provide a lot of slack. So each brand has their own thing they do.

    Also, some places can offer a lot of incentives while their parent is different. Nissan, for example, offers less savings than Infiniti, which we can get some awesome deals with. One time, Infiniti offered a car to one of our clients for like 300 less than the Nissan clone.
