Default Waiting List tips continued

A buyer’s order signed by an authorized agent shows exactly what you will pay. If unsigned it is meaningless. If someone says I will sign it when you come in, I would let me fingers start walking. Say “well before I get my money together and drive all the way over there I would feel more comfortable if I had a signed buyers order in hand.” If they come back with something like, “oh it won’t be a problem” you can respond in the positive, but you need to then get a firm offer from dealer B. And by firm offer I mean a buyer's order. If you really love dealer A because he is X miles closer or the dealership name would look way cool plastered on the liscense plate holder or whatever you can go back and say hey Dealer B gave me the same offer with a signed Buyer’s Order.

Now get your popcorn out, and sit back and watch as your saleshuman tap dances his way into quickly getting a buyer’s order into your hand. You see the buyer’s order is like garlic or a cross, to the vampiric sales powers of the saleshuman.

Please do not interpret anything I am saying as permission to be snide, sarcastic or in anyway unpleasant with your saleshuman. If you do that you will find that Karma works wickedly fast for saleshumans. It is their job to try and get as much money as possible out of you. You can not fault them for that anymore than you could fault a hungry lion for eating your delicious Chihuahua should you happen to drop it into their den at the local Zoo. “My bad Simba, you are right to eat him! Mind the collar it has a metal clasp!”

Saleshumans are usually bright, outgoing people who are chock full of helpful information, approach them with the assumption that you’re a forging a positive symbiotic relationship and that is the outcome you will most likely reach.

You can get on a wait list, but make sure that the deposit is refundable, in writing. Keep in mind that being on the wait list you have no idea what the dealer will charge you. They may promise you MSRP, but ba da boom ba da bing come allocation day the bottom number is higher. Don’t get mad. Yes I know you spent 2376 hours on the wait list and you thought, you thought the saleshuman loved you, but now they are trying to squeeze Benjamins out of you like you’re the last lemon at the last lemonade stand in ****. Breathe deep and remember, chihuahua, lion’s den.

It is a waiting list, not a marriage contract. Simply go to your computer and Google “Ford Dealers XXXXX.” The Xs represent digits of your local zip code. Lounge back in your favorite robe in the comfy confines of your favorite lounging room, and keep calling until you find that special someone who has had his fill of Chihuahua and is willing to take your order at MSRP.
