About You

Your best deal on a vehicle begins before you ever contact a dealership!

Whether you’re a happy Car Pal client or a first-time visitor enjoying what you’re reading on our site, you understand why working with experienced industry professionals is the best decision when it comes to negotiating the deal for your next vehicle.

Why negotiating a good deal on your own isn’t easy or fun

Like most other car buyers, you’ve most likely found that negotiating a truly favorable deal on a new or used vehicle is almost never easy, even when you’re working with a reputable dealer. There are details upon details to remember, along with plenty of opportunities for the dealer to upsell you on pricey options and services. The most highly-rated car dealers are still focused on profit, which makes it extremely difficult for even the most knowledgeable buyers to manage their own negotiation process.

How working with Car Pal improves your car buying experience.

We listen carefully to your needs, and we work with you from the time you decide which vehicle you want (we can also help out with the decision-making upon request) until you’ve signed and sealed your deal, and your vehicle has been delivered to you. Whether you choose to lease or purchase; and whether you seek a new or used vehicle, we’ve got you covered.

Working with us means you’re in great company

Many of our clients have used our services more than once*, and have helped us generate new business through word of mouth. Typically, our clients have limited spare time and excellent credit, and spend their money wisely. Β CEOs, engineers, physicians, surgeons, and other high-level health care practitioners have most frequently benefited from our expertise.

If you’re already a happy Car Pal client, thank you! If you’ve just discovered our site and are seeking your next vehicle, we’d love to help you have an exceptional experience in making your best possible deal with no-nonsense results.
