Charleston, SC (PressExposure) February 17, 2009 -- Buying a car is one of the biggest purchases people make in their lifetime, and shaving hundreds, or even thousands, of dollars off that purchase can make a huge difference in this economy. Car Shopper Concierge, [http://www.carshopperconcierge.com], is a new service that helps buyers save money on their used car purchase by opening their search beyond local dealers to find the best deal online.
Started by John Mettler of Mt Pleasant, S.C., the service, which is not affiliated with any car dealership, aims to help consumers save time and money through an exhaustive online search for their desired used auto. Mettler started Car Shopper Concierge (CSC) after saving his family $3000 on the purchase of their minivan last year simply by searching online and finding it only 60 miles outside their local area.
"At this time when people need every dime they can scrounge up, saving hundreds or thousands on a car purchase can mean making it through another couple months," says Mettler. "I started this business because I wanted people to see how much they can save simply by opening up their search to the Web and considering vehicles outside their local area. Between many dealers willing to drive the car to you and the CARFAX Vehicle History Report we provide, itâs not that big of a deal to purchase an auto outside your city."
To begin the process, customers submit their requirements for the ideal used car they want to purchase to a CSC personal car shopper, who then personally searches a host of quality listing sites to find the three most affordable autos that best meet their needs. Personal shoppers then individually verify all three recommendations by phone to confirm price, sale status and features. Usually within 24 hours (depending on the day of the week), each customer receives a comparison report with the shopperâs top three recommendations along with a photo and description of each car, a link to the site, notes from the shopper, as well as a CARFAXreg; Vehicle History Report and Buyback Guarantee to clear the vehicle of lemon flags, accidents or criminal history. The service costs $149.
