New Company in Dayton Lets You Bypass Negotiating With Car Dealer
DAYTON -- Getting rid of an old car can be a huge headache, especially if you hate negotiating with that car dealer.
"They can manipulate the numbers to make it look like it's good," said customer Jim Weaver.
And if you are selling your car, it normally takes a lot of work on your end to try and get the best quote.
"I have an older blazer that I might look at the that just to see what they would give me," said Weaver.
Let's say you're ready to trade in your car. Normally you would have to go to several different dealerships, but now all you have to do is go online.
The website is Maxtradin.com. They just started working with dealerships in Dayton Wednesday.
"Hopefully the return on investment from the dealers perspective is we can deliver the customers right to their door," said Senior vice president of sales Bob Bolen. "It's very unobtrusive for the customer because from their home. They can just say tell me what you could give me for my car."
From the website, you answer about 10 questions about your car and choose 6 dealers you would consider selling to, and then let their bidding begin, allowing you to bypass the negotiations and making sure you are getting the most for your car.
"It's non-binding. So the customers not committed and neither is the dealership committed," said Market Launch Specialist Kevin McCanna. "So after you Review the offers you select which one you like. The dealer looks at your car appraises it and then they cut a check. So if I misrepresented my vehicle they would say 'Oh you told me this but the opposite is true and we are not going to be able to honor that price'."
Also MaxTradeIn will not give your information to the dealer until you select them as your top choice so you won't have to worry about them hassling you.
"There's not a lot of used cars on the market right now for us to sell so we're going to give very competitive bids," said Christian Hahn of Joseph Airport Toyota.
"That would make life a lot easier," said Weaver. "Now you get a feel for what the trade-in is actually worth.
MaxTradeIn is in Columbus Indianapolis Cincinnati and now Dayton.
