2018's Ultimate Car Buying Trend Is Here!

2018's Ultimate Car Buying Trend Is Here!

This valuable buyer’s guide saves shoppers Time, Money and Unnecessary Stress. Car Leasing Concierge the #1 customer rated car buying and leasing service in the NY, NJ and, CT has all the answers to those skeptical car buying questions.

Car Leasing Concierge in The New York Times!

Paul Maloney owner of Car Leasing Concierge NY.

Jeffry Melnick didn’t want the hassle and anxiety of shopping for a car when he set out to buy one last year.

“When they say to me, ‘Do you want to look under the hood?’ No,” Mr. Melnick said. “No, I don’t.”

So he hired someone to do his haggling for him.

Mr. Melnick, a semiretired theatrical agent who lives in Palm Springs, Calif., called Authority Auto, a car-buying service based in Tarzana, and told it what he wanted — and what he wanted to pay..

 

  • But finding a negotiator can be tricky. There is no standard name for these services — some call themselves a buying service, others a negotiating service, some a broker, still others a concierge. Each seems to operate in its own way.

  • Paul Maloney is a New York-based former fleet director with an Australian accent and a snappy line of patter. He calls his business the Car Leasing Concierge, www.carleasingconcierge.com although he handles new-car sales as well. He sends clients to a dealership with a free worksheet, then, for a fee, he will assess the deal to see if he can beat it. This is a tiered service that tops out with his assessing your deal and handling your purchase for $297.

 

Oren Weintraub, a former car salesman, owns Authority Auto. The services say they can protect consumers and save them time and money. 

Mr. Weintraub, a former car salesman, said he worked with buyers from start to finish. He will help them choose a car and negotiate the sales price, finance rate, and aftermarket products like service contracts and wheel and paint protection. He works nationwide and charges $600 to $1,500, depending on the cost of the car. For an additional $300 he will also sell the client’s old car.

Greg Macke, who calls himself “Your Car Angel,” helps clients pick a car, arranges a test drive, negotiates the purchase and accompanies the buyer to a dealership. He even inspects used cars. But he accepts only clients who live near Los Angeles for his $750 service.

You might think dealerships tremble at their approach, but the negotiators — who said they helped with between 125 and 1,000 purchases a year — say that is not the case.

“We buy so much merchandise from them that we are an asset to them,” said Greg Pence, manager of car-buying services for AAA Carolinas, whose in-house service buys about 1,200 cars a year. He said dealerships liked that the professional negotiators closed deals quickly, “usually within a good 30 minutes or so.”

The negotiators compete with services like TrueCar, which don’t charge the consumer but do charge the dealers — who may pass the cost on to the consumer.

Michael S. Freeman II, the executive manager of Sunset Chevrolet Buick GMC in Sarasota, Fla., said the average profit on a car was 2 percent. On a $30,000 car that would be $600. TrueCar, he said, charges a fee of $300 for each new car sold on a referral.

“When we get someone from TrueCar, we have to cut a check,” Mr. Freeman said. “That is factored into the price.”s

TrueCar is the technology behind 500 buying services, like those of publications like Car & Driver and U.S. News and World Report, and companies like USAA and Sam’s Club. The dealers get their referrals from TrueCar, which displays prices from its member dealerships and allows prospective buyers to compare the out-the-door cost for the vehicle they want. That eliminates haggling — for better or worse.

The details of how a dealer reaches the price that TrueCar displays are complex, said Veronica Cardenas, a spokeswoman for TrueCar, but “it’s not a race to the bottom.” She added, “The idea is you are getting a competitive price.”

There are competitors that charge dealerships a modest monthly fee, such as Costco and CarGurus, which dealers said gave them more room to discount. (Sometimes, getting the very best deal comes from buying at just the right time. Dealers receive bonuses based on sale quotas, meaning they might give bigger discounts if they’re trying to hit a benchmark.

UnTrue-Car Websites or Car Telemarketers? Sell Your Information For A Profit!

  • Today it’s great to be able to have all these new car Apps and Websites available  when you're in the market to buy or lease a new vehicle. But what most consumers don’t know is that 95% of these websites are linked to work in with car dealers. They all come across as your free friendly information center that supposedly helps you get the best deal possible when shopping for a new car.
  • Unknowingly, the customer is completely unaware of what's about to come their way. Let me break it down so you can understand how this magic show full of illusions works, and how you end up paying for that so-called "Free" service.
  • Once they have your information they send it to every dealership in your area hoping to get a sale. Before you know it, you’ll be bombarded with so many emails and phone calls you’ll think you have your very own fan club in the worst possible way. In return, 95% of these sites get a commission back from the selling dealer.
  • Car Dealerships sign up and pay these sites to get your information, then on top of that they get paid an additional commission, usually around $500 if they finalize the sale. So in actuality-- and I really want you to think about this-- you’re paying a site to take your information for what you thought was a free service and give it to car dealerships that then pay them a commission. How do you think these sites stay in business?
  • I know this for a FACT. I used to work for one of the largest dealer franchises in the Greater New York Tri-state area as a Fleet Director. At the beginning of each month these sites would ask us for the new price sheets with their commissions already packed into the price.
  • How many times a day do you see on the internet-- especially FaceBook-- asking you to enter your email, phone and zip code?
fake email address.png
  • Almost all dealerships have an Internet Department that signs up for these referral services. Believe me, you’ll end up with so many calls and emails, you’ll almost have to take on a new identity just to get rid of them! When a deal is complete the car dealer pays the vendor the fee they signed up with to get the information you entered.

Car Sites That Get Paid by Auto Dealers for Your Information!

  • CarMax
  • Edmunds

  • Kelly Blue Book

  • Cars Direct

  • Un-True Car

  • Cars.com

  • Auto-Trader

  • Cars Direct

  • The list goes on and on...

 

  • It’s quite funny, actually, watching these sites and Apps come up with new ways to try and lure people into believing all you have to do is order here and take this number to the car dealership. You're thinking, "Oh, wow that was easy!" Or even better, they give you a buyer’s certificate to show when you arrive at the dealership. That certificate you go in waving around is like a red flag to a bull. The only difference is they charge you in a different way.

Nice to meet you sucker! 

  • The numbers they give you are about as useful as a one legged man in an ass kicking competition. They can only give you a working number, then you're on your own! Some companies now go as far as quoting exact payments.
Nice to meet you Sucker, I mean, "Sir."

Nice to meet you Sucker, I mean, "Sir."

Fact number 2

  • No one can quote you an exact payment without you filling out a credit application and  submitting it to the bank for an approval just like the dealerships. So be careful who you give out your information to with these new online apps.
  • Car dealerships won’t be going away anytime in the near future because sooner or later you’ll have to go into the dealership for a test drive. Just keep this in mind-- all these new Apps are coming out telling you that you’re approved and your payment is only going to be X amount, is just another way to lure you into a dealership.
  • We receive a ton of emails and calls from clients telling us how misleading these websites are once they arrive at the dealership. For peace of mind, before you decide to sign elsewhere, you can get your pricing checked by us at Car Leasing Concierge. We'll help break it down for you with total transparency. This way you'll rest easy knowing you're getting the best pricing and service for your hard earned dollars. 

Remember: the last place you want to end up on is the corner of Sucker Street and Buyer's Remorse Blvd.!

2017's Hottest Car Buying Trend!

 2017's Hottest Car Buying Trend has a step-by-step, quick and easy process for new car buyers in the market to buy or lease any new Car, Truck, Van or SUV. This valuable buyers guide saves shoppers Time, Money and unnecessary Stress.

Why is buying a car like learning a foreign language?

  • A national auto pollster recently surveyed 10,000 people in the U.S. about buying or leasing new cars, and the results show most consumers aren’t exactly fans of the standard car dealership experience. In fact, three-quarters said if given the opportunity, they would consider making their entire car-buying process online-- including financing, price negotiation, back office paperwork and home delivery.

Don't Worry, Drive Happy!

  • For many, purchasing a car at a dealership is too much of a confusing high-pressure process. It’s easy to see how it’s preferable to haggle over prices and options and review the fine print at one’s leisure in front of a screen rather than surrounded by salespeople and their “let me talk to the manager” games.
  • After all, a classic negotiation tactic is walking away from the deal on the table, and walking away from an online offer is as simple as ignoring an email.
  • For another indication of the degree to which consumers don’t like the traditional car-buying experience, check out a recent survey conducted by another national auto ranking pollster.
  • Of 4,002 consumers polled, only 17 said they like the current car buying process just as it is. The rest said they “want significant changes, particularly in the test drive, deal structuring, financing paperwork and service phases.” Many said they’d like to see the nitty-gritty of deals conducted online rather than in person.

Is your wallet getting taken for a test drive?

 

  • For instance, consumers indicate that they would like to see a big change in the way they go about negotiating the deal structure. Of those who liked the idea of online deal building, over half, 65%, want the ability to start the negotiation on their own terms—preferably online—and 35% would like to remain anonymous until they lock in the deal structure.
  • Nearly three-fourths of consumers, 72%, want to complete the credit application and financing paperwork online. The key factors driving this desire are to save time at the dealership (reported by 72% of those who favor online paperwork) and to have less pressure while filling out paperwork (reported by 71% of those who favor online paperwork).
  • Let’s not forget that one of the supposed purposes of car dealerships is to provide a place for consumers to kick the tires, test-drive vehicles, and (hopefully) get good insights and advice from employees.

Nonetheless, there’s considerable pressure to change the often-maddening experience—to make it quicker, more transparent, less stressful, and less complicated—and become more open to online purchases.

Do car dealerships really have the best deals?

If you’ve ever dreaded going to the car dealership, you’re not alone. That’s why services exist that help people buy cars without ever setting foot on a lot.

Once you decide on a car model, car-buying services use certified representatives to do all the searching and haggling for you. Online car services enable you to buy from your living room couch.

People hire representation when they’re not an expert in that field … and car buying today is complex. You negotiate price, interest rates or lease rates, the bank fees, and once you get all that done, you’re not finished.

 A lot of people are just not prepared to effectively negotiate a car deal for themselves. If you want an expert’s help with finding, negotiating and purchasing a new or used car — or you want someone to do those things for you entirely — consider one of the following.

Car Concierges:

What they do:

Auto concierges learn about a shopper’s vehicle needs and preferences than do the legwork.This is where business owners and corporations go to buy or lease their vehicles, as it far supersedes anything a dealership will offer you. Lastly, Concierges will even have the car delivered to your home or office so you can sign the sales contract.

Car-buying concierge is a highly specialized service that only a few companies currently offer.

Payment:

Concierges typically charge a small upfront flat fee or sometimes a percentage of the amount they save you on the vehicle purchase. This fee depends on the car they’re tasked with finding, since they normally deal in mass volume. Either way, the price will nearly always be cheaper than going to a car dealership.

What to know:

  • These professionals know what they’re doing, most are former automotive fleet directors or inventory managers that have the ability and leverage to bypass car dealerships completely.
  • They have access to factory to dealer incentives, buy rates and dealer costs on extended warranty contracts etc, that’s normally not offered to the public
  • Concierges can purchase your new car, so you never have to visit a dealership.

  • No dealer fees or marked up rates.

  • No waiting, same day delivery or within 24 hrs

  • Transparent and professional service. No games.

Club car-buying programs:

What they do: Companies such as American Express, Costco, and AAA have their own auto-buying programs. Some credit unions, such as Navy Federal, also offer them.

Members input their ideal car model and features online, then the company’s representatives search for a match within their certified dealership network.

These approved dealerships offer low, prearranged pricing in exchange for the company’s referrals. Once your representative has found an option, he or she will arrange for you to visit the dealership.

You can take a test drive and sign a contract if you think it’s the right car for you.

Payment:

There might be a small fee for this service, but it’s often free with membership.

What to know:

  • Your car-buying professional might not find the exact model or color you wanted in the dealership network. You’re more likely to find the car you prefer with these services if you’re looking for a widely available model.

  • Many of these representatives can offer advice about which cars are best in class or suggest vehicles you might not have considered.

  • You’ll still be offered an extended warranty and other additional products by the dealership.

  • You still have to go to the car dealership to sign and there’s no guarantee you won’t be waiting. But at least the price of the car is locked in.

  • Bottom line is they can’t get it cheaper than a car concierge that delivers to you

Car Brokers:

What they do:

  • Brokers are often former car salespeople, well-versed in the tactics of dealerships. They can operate individually or as part of a large company with multiple agents.
  • You can hire a broker to search car lots, haggle and buy your ideal car for the best price. You can even hire one to negotiate on your behalf for a car you’ve already found.

Payment:

  • Some brokers charge a small fee or none at all, but they receive an undisclosed commission from the dealership.

  • Buyers should be aware this raises the possibility that some brokers could be incentivized to settle for a higher price or only visit dealerships with which he or she has a good relationship like Truecar or Cars.com.

  • Be careful, these companies get paid to sell your information to the car dealerships and are referred to in the industry as glorified car brokers.

What to know:

  • Car Concierges provide the best overall choice if you don't like going to car dealers
  • Car-buying services are a good service but still send you to the car dealership
  • Find trusted car brokers through online review sites, such as Yelp, or recommendations from friends.

  • Most brokers send you to the dealership to pick up your car or charge a fee to have it delivered.

Are they right for you?

  • Visiting the dealership still has some advantages. It makes it easier to arrange test drives and compare models, and dealerships sometimes have the lowest interest rates for lease deals.
  • We hear often from consumers who negotiated prices for hours with car salespeople. They wasted their time. The only leverage you have with car dealers is the possibility that you’ll walk out and buy from another dealer, or not buy anything at all.
  • We hear from other consumers who used websites that promise to provide information to help them obtain the best price, or in some cases, a (supposedly) low price quote from a car dealer.
  • Some of these websites mean well, they try to arm shoppers with price data they can use to negotiate better-than-average deals. But many just provide referrals to participating—really, paying—dealerships.
  • Even when these sites seem to provide low prices, they often omit important details like hefty document fees, extra fees to locate specific cars, or costly mandatory options.
  • Still, although they might have fees or membership dues, auto-buying programs can save car shoppers a lot of time, stress and potentially thousands of dollars.If you don’t have the time to search the market for the right car — or you simply don’t want to — it can be a relief to have an expert do the heavy lifting.

The bottom line:

"There aren’t too many things out there anymore that you can’t buy in an online way, and it’s really automotive that’s lagging pretty much every other industry out there until now."

  • Car Leasing Concierge is changing the way people buy or lease a new car, in fact you don't even have to step foot inside a dealership. It’s a quick and easy process that many businesses and corporations use.
  • What many people don't know is that the average car shopper can also use their services to buy or lease their own personal vehicles.  This allows them to bypass car dealerships entirely, saving them valuable time, money and unnecessary stress

 

  • Created by former auto fleet directors who've managed some of the Tri-state's largest and most prestigious automotive dealerships for over 25 years, their Direct Fleet Network system has the ability and leverage to deal directly with the manufacturer.
  • This allows them to offer you below dealer pricing on most makes and models normally inaccessible to the public. What that means is this is the cheapest way  you can possibly buy or lease a new car, truck or SUV-- regardless of where you got your price from.
  • If you have a new vehicle in mind, they'll be be more than happy to check your deal for a better one. In most cases after a quick analysis is complete, clients end up saving hundreds to thousands of dollars more they weren't even aware of.

Should You Buy Or Lease Your Next Car?

Should You Buy Or Lease Your Next Car?

By Deborah Skolnik

This story originally appeared on LearnVest as "When Is It Smarter to Lease a Car?"

Need a new ride? There’s more than one way to get it. An increasing number of people are forgoing the car loan application process and opting to lease a car instead. In fact, leasing has grown so popular that it now accounts for nearly a third of all vehicle sales.

Before you jump on this trend, let our checklist below help you decide if leasing is right for you.

You Don’t Have Much Money to Put Down.

 If you’re buying a car, you’ll typically need to hand over at least 10% of the price up front to get the best interest rate on a loan. But with today’s average new car costing more than $34,000, that 10% down payment “can be a struggle for many people,” says David Bennett, manager of automotive programs at the Automobile Association of America (AAA). By contrast, you can often lease a car with little to no down payment. “Cost factors are the number-one reason why leasing is becoming so popular,” Bennett adds.

You Want Lower Monthly Payments

When you lease, your monthly payments are about a third lower than if you were to buy the same model car with a five-year loan, according to one recent case study. And you’ll be on the hook for less time: “Most leases are two to three years,” explains Bennett.

You Like New Cars With the Latest Features

“That’s part of the beauty of a lease. It enables you to get into a car that’s nicer than you might be able to afford if you had to put a lot of money down,” says Paul Maloney, owner of Car Leasing Concierge in New York City. Do you always rush to buy the next-version smart phone or HDTV? Crave the upgraded model of everything? Leasing might be your best bet, says Maloney, since you only have to keep the car for a couple of years before switching to a new one.

You’re Not the Customizing Kind

When you lease a car, you need to keep it as it is. If you’re itching to have a spoiler put on or to swap out that steering wheel for a cooler one (you know who you are!), you’re better off owning.

You’re Fearful of Surprise Repair Bills

“When you lease a car, it’s under warranty the whole time,” Bennett explains. If there’s a problem, the repair won’t be coming out of your pocket.

You’ll Be Using the Car for Work

“You can write off part of your lease financing costs on your taxes,” says Maloney. You can also deduct a portion of the vehicle’s depreciation. Meanwhile, interest on the loan you took out for a new ride isn't deductible.

You Rarely Drive Long Distances

“Most car leases have a mileage limit, typically 12,000 miles per year, which is about what the average person drives,” says Maloney. After that, you'll likely have to pay up to 25 cents per mile. If you know your driving habits and can stick with your plan’s mileage limit, great. But keep in mind this isn’t a match for everyone’s needs: The average 35- to 54-year-old man, for instance, drives nearly 19,000 miles annually, according to the Federal Highway Administration.

You Need a Gap Vehicle

Will your company be transferring you from the South, where a convertible may be fine, to the North, where a four-wheel drive might come in handy, in a few years? Will you be getting married and starting a family? “A lease allows you to get exactly the car you need now and makes it easy to jump into a different vehicle for your new needs a little later on,” Bennett says.

You’re a Careful Driver

“Dents, dings and tears in the leather or fabric are all things you’ll have to be responsible for if you lease,” says Bennett. “You want to take very good care of a leased car or you may end up with an unexpected bill when you turn it back in.”

Your Haggling or Sales Skills Aren't Great

Getting rid of a car you own always involves some negotiation. If you’re trading it in, you’ll square off with a dealer; if you’re selling, it may involve placing ads and posting on social media — then having strangers come to your home. With leasing, though, the process is simple: You just return the car to the company you leased it from like Car Leasing Concierge.

New Car Buyers' Checklist

Don't let your wallet get taken for a test drive!

Unlike going to a car dealer - which often leaves you with an uneasy feeling inside - more buyers are trusting the ease and transparency of Car Leasing Concierge's QUICK and EASY process that allows you to buy or lease any new car, truck or SUV without having to go to a car dealership.

Below are scenarios that you'll not only want to avoid, but will NEVER HAVE TO EXPERIENCE when you use Car Leasing Concierge!

Imagine sitting in a car dealership: the scent of new cars, stale donuts, burnt coffee and free popcorn mixes with the hustle and bustle for a sensory overload. Excitement is in the air! You're giddy and you're also anxious. You've picked out the model you want—and the dealer just happens to have it in stock. You think you've agreed to a price, and you think that only a stack of papers to satisfy your bank and your state's department of motor vehicles stands between you and a happy drive home in a shiny new ride.

But wait! The dealer still has plenty of opportunities to take a few more bucks from your already thin-feeling wallet. And while there are certainly some great car dealers out there, consumer confidence remains low.

A recent survey by industry auditing firm Total Dealer Compliance (TDC) found that 70% of adults surveyed said that they believe new car dealers are unethical. TDC's ultimate goal is to have dealers display a code of ethics in their showrooms, but the firm admits such a move would be a mere baby step towards improving the overall experience.

To help you navigate your way through the car buying process, Car Leasing Concierge has put together a list of unethical tricks we've seen dealers try to pull, some of which may really surprise you. No automaker is immune to these tricks since dealers operate independently—and they're likely to stay that way, as any effort to create showrooms run by automakers has been squashed by dealer lobbying groups in many states.

1. You're handling what? Dealer handling fees!

Money and power. Senior gangster in shirt and suspenders counting money and smiling while sitting at the table

Profit margins—the difference between what the dealer paid the manufacturer for the car and what they're charging you—are lower than ever on new cars. On some models-- especially less expensive cars or those that have sat around in a showroom for a long time-- the dealer may truly be making just a few hundred dollars! That could translate into a very slim profit for the dealer once the salesperson's commission has been paid out.

To make up for this, many dealers now charge their own, flat rate fee. It's sometimes called a handling fee, or processing fee, and in some markets it can be upwards of $800! Ostensibly, this fee is there to help the dealer recoup a few bucks for filing registration paperwork on behalf of you.

If you live in a metro area where dealer handling charges are the norm, it may be hard to avoid paying this hefty fee. That's why Car Leasing Concierge is such a breath of fresh air - no added fees means happy customers, and no dealer add-ons!

2. Sound the alarm! Dealer-installed alarm systems

Your new car may very well have an alarm system installed at the factory by the automaker. That alarm is probably pretty decent—but, if you find yourself parking in unsavory areas, you may consider adding an aftermarket alarm. And even if you don't mention this to the dealer, their finance department could offer one at a cut rate price.

As The Truth About Cars pointed out, an entire cottage industry exists that creates alarms that are, at best, simply ineffective. Depending on how they're installed, they could actually be a massive hinderance since dealers may not properly tap into a car's electrical wiring. If you're presented with an "offer" to buy one of these alarms, do your research.

Some unsavory dealers automatically install alarms on every car in their inventory! Run, don't walk, away! Even if you talk your way out of paying for the alarm, you're still saddled with a car that has been questionably modified in a way that very well could violate its factory warranty!!

Car Leasing Concierge will always listen to your needs - there is no pressure for an alarm system, unless it is something that YOU want for your new vehicle!

3. Protecting nothing: Absolutely useless add-ons

A dealer may offer you some genuinely useful accessories—quality rubber winter floor mats and window tint come to mind. But then there's pinstriping, rust-preventing undercoating, paint sealant, door edge guards, etc.. We've even seen fabric protection listed as a dealer-installed item on a car with leather seats!

Almost none of these features serves any purpose whatsoever, and combined they can add hundreds, if not thousands, to the manufacturer's suggested retail price. So while the dealer may knock $800 off of a car's sticker price, they're making that—and more—up by charging you $1,000 for a useless "protection package."

By that same token, some automakers use distributors to service certain regions. To bolster their bottom line, those distributors also add options. While this practice isn't as egregious as it used to be, you should still be very, very wary of anything not installed at the factory.

4. Read the paperwork

When it comes down to signing on the dotted line (since there is a mountain of paperwork ahead of you), read everything closely. We've heard (and experienced) no shortage of horror stories centered around sitting in the finance office. Check carefully to make sure that the vehicle identification number (or VIN) of the car you're signing on is the one you test drove and decided to buy. Read any disclosures carefully; dealers are required by law to tell you anything out of the ordinary they might know about the car you're ready to buy (maybe it has had some paint work done because someone scraped it on a test drive).

And that low interest rate may not be as simple as you think. Dealers and banks work closely together, so it's worth asking the finance team if they're getting a kickback—or a referral fee—by sending you specifically to the financial institution to whom you'll be writing (a lot of) checks to in the near future. Also, you can always ask what, on top of the principal and interest, you'll be paying for over the course of the loan since there may be additional charges not clearly spelled out in the terms.

Car Leasing Concierge helps you avoid all of the above by not only delivering your vehicle directly to you at your home or office, but also the necessary paperwork, so you don't waste hours of your day sitting in a dealer's finance office!

5: Above and (too far) beyond: Recommended service intervals

158807643

You've already bought your dream ride and, a few months later, it's time for an oil change. A quick look through the owner's manual (read it!) to the maintenance guide (also read it!) shows that, at 5,000 miles, you're due for an oil change and a tire rotation. But when you pull into the service bay, the friendly adviser whips out a chart of additional maintenance "recommendations." The dealer wants to change the differential fluid, flush the coolant, install new wiper blades, and-- our favorite-- replace the air filter. Suddenly a $50 visit has become a $500 wallet-grabber and you're left thinking that the cheap-to-maintain car you just bought is going to cost you a grand a year in basic maintenance.

Yes, these things do need to be done... someday. Today may or may not be that day.

To be certain, wear items like wiper blades and air filters do need to be replaced eventually, and nearly every fluid or oil should be periodically changed. But many dealers recommend service intervals that go well above what the manufacturer suggests—and automakers are cautious about suggesting service in the first place. We put a lot more trust in what a carmaker's engineers have put into a maintenance guide than what a dealer suggests. If you detect any hint of unscrupulous behavior, refer to your owner's manual.

We'll say it one more time: Read the manual. Follow the automaker's recommendations. They built it, so shouldn't they know how to service it?

The bottom line is Car Leasing Concierge saves you from the inconvenience of having to go to the car dealer and pay for all the over-inflated, game-playing prices and extra fees.

Buy or Lease a New Car Online With Honesty and Transparency

Owner/President - Car Leasing Concierge

Biography

After moving to the U.S. in my mid-20s and working extensively in hospitality, I was introduced to the auto industry. I quickly advanced, learning from top professionals, becoming a Fleet Director for Toyota, Lexus, BMW, Jaguar, Mercedes, Land Rover, Alfa Romeo, Volvo and Saab. Working in fleet, I easily transferred those same hospitality skills - making my customers' needs my first priority, and committing to always be readily available to them throughout the purchasing process. My clientele was a wide range of individuals, which included Fortune 500 companies and their executives, celebrities, professional athletes and musicians.

Today, after over 20 years' of fleet management experience, and working for some of the most prestigious automotive brands, I knew the time was right to create an entirely new business niche. After learning over 70% of U.S. consumers surveyed noted they'd prefer to buy their next vehicle online from the comfort of their own home rather than go to a car dealership, I formed Car Leasing Concierge.

Lease or buy a new car from the comfort of your own home, rather than a dealership!

The 2017 Bugatti Chiron

IMG_2478.JPG

The best manufacturers incorporate the history of their brand into their new releases.

The 2017 Bugatti Chiron is a perfect example of paying homage to that which came before - in this case, the Bugatti Type 32, a racer almost a century ahead of its time built in 1923.

In each case, they are the ultimate in limited editions - only 500 2017 Chirons have been made, and only FOUR Type 32s were ever built.

Top Cars of 2016: Which Do Consumers Pick?

When most consumers start looking for the best car to buy, they often already have the features in their mind which define their top car before even beginning their car shopping. This buying decision factors not only in price, but also pure emotional appeal. Here are the Top Cars of 2016 which we define as the best from consumers' overall feedback.

Best Compact Car - Subaru Impreza

This model might be small, but the car's ride and overall comfort if offers will surprise anyone. The model comes with expansive window glass and lots of interior space. It has a suite of available safety technology, great crash-test results, and also comes in a hatchback version. If you live somewhere with heavy snowfall, you'll appreciate its superb all-wheel-drive traction!

Best Midsized Car - Toyota Camry

This vehicle might seem a bit vanilla for its looks, but don't let its exterior fool you! When it comes to the driving experience, Toyota Camry has few rivals. Boasting great outward visibility, controls that are easily to handle, and a roomy interior-- it might not make it the most thrilling, but it's far from plain. You can also get a hybrid version if you're interested in a fuel-efficient vehicle at a reasonable price.

Best Small SUV - Subaru Forester

You might have heard people call Subaru Forester the official vehicle of New England, and rightly so! This model is good enough to be the top small SUV anywhere! It's roomy, rides comfortably, and handles perfectly. It has an AWD system that beat the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V, and has the best sight lines from the driver's seat of any model on the market.

Best Luxury SUV - Lexus RX

Lexus' luxury cars have dominated their market now for over 20 years. The sleek styling shows RX has shifted from being an understated part of the Little League parking lot to a more extroverted design player. The hybrid version also gets an impressive 29 mpg overall!

Best Sports Car under $40K - Mazda MX-5 Miata

The Mazda Miata is great at combining lithe, precise handling with a crisp manual stick shift and a zoomy engine-that gets an enviable 34 mpg. It satisfies both the enthusiast driver and weekend racer. With firm suspension, it is also very reliable.

Best Pickup Truck - Ford F-150

Ford created a pickup that weighs less, drives quick off the line and is also fuel-efficient. This 2.7 liter turbo V6 has more power than traditionalists expect. It even gets a full extra 1 mpg better than a comparable Chevy. The cabin is spacious, with large windows and windshield pillars to aid outward visibility. It is a solid workhorse and one of the 2016's top picks.

Buy a New Car Without Going to a Dealership!

If it were possible and practical, most people would never set foot in a car dealership when purchasing a vehicle.

A national auto pollster recently surveyed 10,000 people in the U.S. about buying or leasing new cars, and the results show most consumers aren’t exactly fans of the standard car dealership experience. In fact, three quarters said if given the opportunity, they would consider making their entire car-buying process online-- including financing, price negotiation, back office paperwork and home delivery.

For many, purchasing a car at a dealership is too much of a confusing high-pressure process. It’s easy to see how it’s preferable to haggle over prices and options and review the fine print at one’s leisure in front of a screen rather than surrounded by salespeople and their “let me talk to the manager” games. After all, a classic negotiation tactic is walking away from the deal on the table, and walking away from an online offer is as simple as ignoring an email.

For another indication of the degree to which consumers don’t like the traditional car-buying experience, check out a recent survey conducted by another national auto ranking pollster. Of 4,002 consumers polled, only 17 said they like the current car buying process just as it is. The rest said they “want significant changes, particularly in the test drive, deal structuring, financing paperwork and service phases.” Many said they’d like to see the nitty-gritty of deals conducted online rather than in person.

For instance, consumers indicate that they would like to see a big change in the way they go about negotiating the deal structure. Of those who liked the idea of online deal building, over half, 65%, want the ability to start the negotiation on their own terms—preferably online—and 35% would like to remain anonymous until they lock in the deal structure.

Nearly three fourths of consumers, 72%, want to complete the credit application and financing paperwork online. The key factors driving this desire are to save time at the dealership (reported by 72% of those who favor online paperwork) and to have less pressure while filling out paperwork (reported by 71% of those who favor online paperwork).

Let’s not forget that one of the supposed purposes of car dealerships is to provide a place for consumers to kick the tires, test-drive vehicles, and (hopefully) get good insights and advice from employees. Nonetheless, there’s considerable pressure to change the often-maddening experience—to make it quicker, more transparent, less stressful, and less complicated—and become more open to online purchases.

"There aren’t too many things out there anymore that you can’t buy in an online way, and it’s really automotive that’s lagging pretty much every other industry out there until now."

Car Leasing Concierge is changing the way people buy or lease a new car without having to step foot inside a dealership. In fact, it’s a quick and easy process that nearly 90% of corporations and businesses use on a regular basis for their own employees!

Created by former auto fleet directors who've managed some of the Tri-state's largest and most prestigious automotive dealerships for over 25 years, our Direct Fleet Network system has the ability and leverage to deal directly with the manufacturer.

This allows us to offer you below market fleet pricing on most makes and models normally inaccessible to the public. What that means is this is the cheapest way  you can possibly buy or lease a new car, truck or SUV-- regardless of where you got your price from.

All you have to do is when you find the exact make and model of the vehicle you want to buy or lease-- along with the best price you've been quoted-- simply go to our Car Price Check Page and enter in the information. We'll then match your numbers against our fleet pricing to see how much more we can save you from the inconvenience of having to go to the car dealer and pay retail. It's that simple!

As an added bonus, we'll not only place you directly in the driver's seat of your new vehicle without setting foot inside a dealership, but also deliver it right to your home or office.
