You may have heard your friends mention Carconnect, you may have even seen our ads in your newsfeed, but do you really know what it is that we do?
Many people are under the impression that we’re a straight forward car brokering service, but we like to think that we’re far more than that. And why is that? Well, before we answer that let’s take a quick look at why you would need a service like ours.
New car sales have gone through the roof in recent years with a huge percentage of the population now able to afford a brand new car every few years. And all those sales mean one thing; a highly competitive industry.
For the consumer (that’s you) this is great news as dealers compete with one another to offer the best deals on every model in their showrooms. This means that the same car may be available from two separate dealerships at a different price.
Now, we know that nobody likes driving from dealership to dealership using up all their free time just to find the best deal on their new purchase. The same can also be said of haggling with salespeople over prices, extras, and all those additional fees you might have to pay to get your car on the road.
This is where we come into the picture.
We noticed that the car purchasing experience was far too inconvenient, not to mention time-consuming, and so we decided to see what we could do to simplify it. What we came up with was an uncomplicated process that allows you to find the prices for a particular model from various dealers online.
Incredibly, until we came along this seemingly straightforward task was impossible as dealers would only discuss prices in person. However, our connections within the industry paved the way for a completely transparent service that benefits not only you but also the dealer. You get a great deal on your car while dealers get quality leads and repeat business from us.
First off, after you have decided what model you would like to purchase, we contact several dealers to ask what cars they have available that suit your needs. As car people ourselves with years of experience in the industry, we know the right questions to ask each dealer about your new car ensuring that you are getting the best value for money.
We also find out when each dealer will have the car in question available. And while this may not seem like a big deal at the outset, you’ll find that if you’ve chosen a popular model, you may have a long wait before you can get behind the wheel. If you request it, we can also tailor our search to uncover the dealers that can deliver your new car in the shortest time possible.
Once we find the best deals out there (it doesn’t take us long at all) we get back to you and let you make the final decision.
When you decide which deal you’d like to accept, we then set the wheels in motion. If you’re in need of finance, our partners Stratton can source a variety of financing options to suit your needs. We’ll then pick up your new car, give it a full tank of fuel, and deliver it right to your door at no extra cost.
If you have a car that you want to trade-in, we’ll handle that as a completely separate deal. We’ll find you three independent valuations for your car, and we’ll even pick it up when we drop off your new car.
Our goal is to allow you to go through the entire process without having to set foot outside your door other than to accept delivery of your new car.
And that is why we like to consider ourselves a car concierge service as opposed to a broker.
In a word, no. You only pay 1.5% of the value of the car.
And don’t worry, all fees involved in the process are clearly laid out, so you know exactly where every cent of your money is going.
For the time and money saved, haggling avoided, and the feel-good factor of a hassle free purchasing experience, we’d say that works out as a pretty sweet deal.
If you’d like to save money and time on your next new car purchase, then get in touch with us today and one of our specialist consultants will get back to your as soon as possible.
So now you finally know what it is that we do, don’t waste another minute. That new car won’t find itself, that’s what we’re here for.
