Professional Car Concierges Make Car Buying Easy,

Paul Maloney.

President of Car Leasing Concierge

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. His 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.

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.
