Frequently Asked Questions

Hire the Expert Negotiator

Is Inside Car Buying an Auto Broker?

Yes, but unlike many Auto Brokers who accept money from both ends of the sale (the buyer and the seller), we work solely for the car buyer. Inside Car Buying, LLC is strictly a Car Buyer’s Agent. We assist car buyers through the car buying process. Our sole interest is getting big savings for our customers!

How much money can Inside Car Buying save me?

Generally, much more than you can get on your own. Inside Car Buying, LLC is made up of expert insiders in the car industry who have had outstanding careers selling cars. We know the ins and outs of the industry to save our customers the most money possible. Even for the most experienced car buyer — we save our customers an average of $4,219.00! We guarantee savings of at least $1,000 over the M.S.R.P. or your best offer or there is no cost to you.

How much does Inside Car Buying, LLC make off of me?

Our only profit comes from the fee we charge to the customer for our time and expertise. We do not accept money from dealerships. It is important that we work solely for the customer in order to eliminate any conflict of interest and get the best deal possible for the customer.

What if a friend refers me to a dealership? Doesn't that get me the best deal?

There is no guarantee that a friend’s referral will save you money. It’s important to remember that salespeople are trying to make a profit. Inside Car Buying is here to save you money and make the profit for the dealer as small as possible.

Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Reports®

Why would I pay you for a car quote instead of just going to a dealership?

Because knowledge is power and our Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Reports® give you information Dealers don’t want you to know. The dealership has no reason to offer you or tell you the best price. Our Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Reports® tell you exactly what you should be paying and how much car dealers try to make on you — saving you countless hours at the dealership and thousands of dollars.

For example: If your report says your lease payment should be $275 per month and the dealer tells you the best he can do is $390 per month then you should move on to the next dealer! That’s a difference of $115 per month and over a 36 month lease you will overpay by $4,140. Quotes like this happen all the time but new car buyers aren’t aware of it because they don’t know what the lowest price they can expect is…Now you have the upper hand!

What exactly do I get with the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Report® service?

If you are leasing:
You’ll get the exact M.S.R.P. (the price we expect the dealer to try to sell you the car for), specific incentives you qualify for which dealers usually keep as added profit, the exact residual value and money factor issued from the bank for the month you request the quote so the dealer can’t mark them up for added profit, exact sales tax you should pay, exact monthly payment amount to the penny, the published Bank Fee so the dealer can’t mark it up for added profit, and DMV fees. Most dealerships have additional fees to the ones listed above which give them even more profit – If its not on our Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Report® you shouldn’t be paying it!

If you financing or paying cash:
You’ll get the exact M.S.R.P. (the price we expect the dealer to try to sell you the car for), specific incentives you qualify for which dealers usually keep as added profit, the interest rate you should be getting, sales tax amount and DMV fees. Most dealerships have additional fees to the ones listed above which give them even more profit – If its not on our Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Report® you shouldn’t be paying it!

How easy is it to get the best price listed from the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Report®?

The price you receive from the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Report® service is what we would get if you used the Hire the Expert service. Sometimes we are able to get that price from the 1st or 2nd dealership we shop and other times it takes shopping 40 or more dealerships. Your results will depend on your comfort and skills at negotiation and the time you invest in shopping multiple dealers.

Can I get a discount if buy multiple Do-It-Yourself (DIY) Dealer Reports®?
