How to Get the Best Deal on CarWoo! if You’re Already Working with a Dealer Outside of CarWoo!
CarWoo! keeps you 100% anonymous, so if you’ve already worked with a dealer through another channel (free quotes, called the dealer, etc…) you can be assured you can communicate and negotiate without the dealer knowing they are already working with you. If you’re really worried, just change your first name in the Account section on CarWoo! and there will be no way for them to tell who you are. Check it out!
How to Get the Best Deal on CarWoo! if You Have a Price from Another Website or a Dealer Quote That’s Better than One You’ve Received from a Dealer on CarWoo!
Tell the dealers about it on CarWoo! CarWoo! is a live marketplace, there are no pre-set prices and this works to your advantage in many ways. Anytime pricing is published online or given to you by a dealer, you can use the information to help other dealers price appropriately. If you use these two steps, dealers will know exactly what to do.
1. Find a price for the exact vehicle you want to buy. CarWoo! has a set of research pages that make it easy to get up to date market pricing for the car you are looking for. Visit our new car pricing pages and search for the car you want to buy. The prices displayed will give you a general range for what the market is currently selling the car at (exclusive of options)
2. Counter-offer on CarWoo! at a price you are comfortable paying relative to the pricing you received.
3. In the comments, tell the dealer where you got the price and that you countered with this pricing in mind. This lends credibility to your counter offer. If you received the price from another dealer outside of CarWoo!, tell them who sent you the offer and you’ll be set.
4. Repeat for every car you’re willing to buy.
As soon as you counter-offer and send the comment to the dealers, they can then come back into their CarWoo! account and choose to accept your counter. With this information and the fact that CarWoo! dealers can see all the offers given to you, you are assured to get a great deal that will be hard to beat anywhere.
A final hint: Use all the information you can to get a great deal, then use CarWoo! to tell dealers exactly what you’re willing to pay based on fair values you’ve seen across the web and from dealers!
