it really comes down to the location your in, in some places they don't move much on prices and in others they offer way better deals on exact same machines
as they say, NOT all dealers are the same
and sadly in today's world, where so few people CARE about there job, and just look at YOU a customer as WORK, and could care less as so many work by the hr rate and NOT on commission, so there motivation is far from great!
I was just a a power sports show, there were several dealers there, I honestly stopped by a few of there booths to POSSIBLE talk about buying, and I was ignored like I wasn't even there, dealers salesmen, were sitting on machines day dreaming and looking around like they didn;'t even want to be there
NOT a one even asked me if I was looking to buy, had any questions or anything to show effort in making a sale!
a dealership like this?? I wouldn;t buy off any way, unless they sold things so cheap it was impossible top say no and I would never go back to them for service LOL
typically when I get ready to buy anything, I price shop at a LOT of dealers online, email them stating my plans, basically asking for there BEST price and telling them straight up, the BEST price gets my money, IF there close and someone beats them, I will give them a second shot to get my business, but am NOT going to play games of back and forth and small gains in better deals,
give me your best right off, and don't waste my time, and I won;t waste your's?
I have gotten a lot of Great deals this way, but I also am NOT scared to travel to get the deals I have gotten
My ATV came from 600+ miles away one way, my last truck came from almost a 1000 miles away, saved THOUSANDS on both buys!, well worth the costs of fuel and a day or two of travel for me!
but not everyone can afford to travel or have time to ! but looking farther out most times can net you the best deal!, still give the locals a shot, but most times, my locals SUCK, they think there stuff is gold or something and look for dummy's that will finance there life's away and never price shop else where! LOL
