My friend just got a s a job as a cars sales man he hates it - Seemingly the vulnerable/nice customers get screwed and the horrible customers get the deals. Also the whole technique has apparently changed the salesman are told if a customer is serious they will have done there research on the net so if the ask questions that would indicate they havnt looked on line they are not serious and not worth wasting time on.
I love him so fucking much
I think we’ve discussed haggling before, but I find it fucking awful.
He said in one incident a college sold a car for £3,000.00 more than they should have to lovely old couple, but yes you are essentially right
They don’t have advertised prices as such as depending on all the extras or if it has a few miles on the clock (literally 100miles or less) or ‘promotions’ they can change the price.
Apparently the old couple came back a few days later but I think he said they were fobbed off again.
Everything in that scene is amazing.
Richard Lewis turning up later in that episode is absolute gold as well
I literally cannot do it, I think it falls into a category with ‘banter’ in things that require a thicker skin than I have, because mine is a bit Rizla-y and I just crumble when they push back. Would probably end up paying more rather than less and then thanking them profusely on the way out.
I know I couldn’t believe it, and this is one of the ‘reputable’ ones, they are all at it apparently
Seems like everyone’s out to get you in this world of ours, Rony.
This is what they’ve always been like though?
I always thought that was true of the second hand market but not new cars
If you’re buying a brand new car you’ve already done yourself
This is going to sound like a plug but I’m not affiliated in any way with this company - If you want a good deal on a new car and hate in-person haggling use CarWow. It basically just gets all the dealerships to undercut each other and offer you a heavily discounted price from the off.
Drive it out of the showroom and onto the street. It’s worth £10k less straight away. Lovely,
