So i am looking to buy a new car (likely a demo). I have selected the model, test driven it and know this is the vehicle I want. How do I now get the best price?
I have searched all of the dealers websites and found a few differences in price and have put the hard word on dealers including the desired acccessories. I have had a couple of prices come back at me which seems fairly good.
I am now considering whether it is worth giving the service Union Shopper Motor Market the final chance to drive the price down lower. Basically how they explained it works is you give all of your requirements. Ie, model, colour, max km's as a demo, accessories and any other requirements as well as your already best obtained price. They will put it out to all of the dealerships who then get 24 hours to respond with their best price (like a reverse bidding system).
The reason it apparently works and Union Shopper Motor Market can usually beat your already best price is because you are committing to the purchase once you put your request in as when you put in the request you provide your credit card details as the deposit. Because the dealerships know all enquiries from Union Shopper Motor Market are a definite thing, they put their best price forward to try and win the bid. Finally as part of the winning bid, the dealer is required to have the car delivered to the Union Shopper headquarters, so for the buyer it doesn't really matter the location of the winning bid.
Do you see any downsides to putting my car purchase through this? Am I likely to pick up the lemon or somehow get a raw deal through this process? Appreciate everyone's insights and any other tips they have in driving car prices down.
