Many adults will buy several cars during their lifetime. People spend a considerable amount of time in their cars, commuting to work, taking their children to school and various activities, driving to entertainment and recreational activities, and so on. Most people want their car to provide not only transportation, but also comfort and convenience.
Goldstein said it’s the job of the salesman’s to investigate what a customer’s wants and needs are and key in on their buying motivations. If it is a soccer mom, she is going to be concerned with the safety and fuel economy and if it is an 18-year-old, they are going to focus more on the performance and appearance of a vehicle.
“So, there is a serious process to what we do here and we consider ourselves selection specialists,” said Goldstein. “It is what we do. The hardest part of the job is making sure we find the right car for our customers while offering them a great deal.”
Also, many people who walk through the doors of any car dealership tend to have their guard up and to overcome that, Goldstein said they try to build a rapport with the customer to make them feel comfortable.
“Car salesmen have gotten a stigma a long time ago from the old days,” commented Goldstein. “It is not like that anymore. Close to 68 percent of business that we do here is repeat and referral.”
Goldstein added that the niche at Transitowne USA Resale of Depew is that the pre-owned vehicles are priced between $8,000 and $16,000.
“We are one of four stand alone resale centers in the Transitowne organization,” said Goldstein.
There are a total of nine Transitowne dealerships in Western New York.
The cars that are resold usually are purchased from auctions or are trade-ins. All the vehicles go through a 151 point inspection for mechanics and appearance.
“All the components are brought back to like new condition,” said Goldstein. “We stand by our vehicles. They are fully detailed, full tank of gas, and we offer free oil changes for life with every vehicle purchase.”
Transitowne USA offers an “ultimate advantage package” for every vehicle. It includes the free oil changes for as long as you own the vehicle, a 48 hour exchange policy, and if a lower price is found on the same vehicle with the same benefits, options and rebates within 48 hours, the customer will be refunded 100 percent of the difference. Also, free 24 hour towing to Transitowne Collision and a used vehicle history report.
Goldstein noted that the difficulty level to sell a pre-owned vehicle isn’t any harder than to sell a new vehicle, but did say it is more difficult to buy a pre-owned vehicle, because there are so many choices.
“When you go and buy a new car, you know it is either going to be Chevy, Ford, Honda, or Toyota and when you get there, they’re going to have five of the same Accords and five of the same Civics and then you pick out the color you want, but when you’re buying a pre-owned vehicle, I have probably 30 different makes and models on the lot.”
In addition, Goldstein said they truly guarantee credit approval for the first time car buyer or for those whose credit isn’t so good. If someone is not approved, the car is free.
