Not only are people fed up with the way they are treated by most car salespeople, but they struggle to understand all the 'extras' thrown into a car deal.
Kansas City, MO (PRWEB) July 21, 2009
Today, Wheelator.com Co-Founder, Kevin McMillen, announced the launch of the company's online car buying service. By visiting Wheelator.com. consumers can sign-up for a personalized car buying service and avoid the hassles that go along with purchasing a vehicle.
The staff at Wheelator.com will not only find the vehicle the customer is interested in, but they will negotiate rebates, trade-ins, financing, and other fees associated with car buying in order to get the customer maximum savings. The customer is only responsible for signing the final paperwork and picking up the vehicle at the end of the process.
"It comes as no surprise, in this age of social media, that the digital consumer process has trickled down to the automotive industry," said Kevin McMillen, co-founder of Wheelator.com. "Not only are people fed up with the way they are treated by most car salespeople, but they struggle to understand all the 'extras' thrown into a car deal."
Both consumers and businesses can hire a car buying service so they don't have to negotiate with the dealership and because of the savings guarantee a car buying service provides. Amazingly, the process can all be accomplished online with nothing more than a few mouse clicks. Web-based car buying services is the newest way to buy a vehicle, and the new Cash for Clunkers legislation is boosting their popularity even more since many consumers are confused by the process.
Wheelator.com offers its services for $299, which includes a money-back guarantee. Not all car buying services operate using the same payment structure.
"Consumers need to be careful when deciding on a car buying service due to the fact that a lot of these companies take a kick back from the dealership," McMillen said. "Secondly, don't do business with any service taking a percent of the amount they save you, since you probably had several thousand dollars coming to you in rebates, and sometimes those rebates are not better than the zero percent interest loan you could have gotten in the same deal. You want an automotive consultant who will weigh those options with you."
According to the National Automobile Dealers Association, the average price of a new car sold in the United States is $28,400, which means the flat fee Wheelator.com offers is about one percent of the total purchase price. Compare this to a Realtor who charges about six percent as a home buyer's agent and offers no savings guarantee.
It's only a matter of time before all car buyers are working with automotive consultants instead of handling the car buying process on their own, especially given the fact that many dealerships and sales people treat customers poorly and are not focused on giving the car buyer the best deal possible.
As McMillen said, "sometimes all the lost money and time wasted at the dealership makes someone want to avoid the process altogether."
