Our Process

Rateous is here for you at all steps of the auto buying process. Our goal is to make the process as easy as possible. With that said, here is our process and what you can expect of us:

The Beginning
When you have decided it is time to purchase your next vehicle, contact us! Even if you just have a simple question, need guidance or information contact us! We can provide direction.

If you'd like, we can refer you to a dealer or work the entire deal on your behalf at no cost to you.

No, we will not share your information with any dealers (just yet). Unlike every other car buying website that sends your information to multiple dealers we will not do this to you. You will not receive one phone call from a dealership until you tell us that you're ready. If you submitted your information through another car buying website then yes, you will have dealerships call you. However, it will not be because of us!!

The Middle
We will contact dealerships on your behalf and negotiate your purchase! We negotiate the price of the vehicle, your trade-in (if you have one), your down payment and of course your interest rate.

We will then contact you directly and let you know what options you have. At no point are you obligated to purchase the vehicle if you don't want to. We will never pressure you to either. If you are truly ready to make your purchase and the terms are agreeable then we will move forward on your behalf.

The Last and Best Part
You are ready to drive away in your brand new, shiny vehicle!!
The negotiation is done! You are now ready to complete the purchase.
Once you give us your permission, we will contact the dealer who you will be purchasing from and give them your direct contact information (that you gave us). Your dedicated sales consultant will call you to introduce themself, confirm your appointment and anything that you need to bring with you.

The only thing that is left is for you to show up for your appointment at the dealership, sign their paperwork and drive away in your brand new vehicle!

Make sure to take a picture next to your new vehicle and tag, tweet and mention us! #Rateous

Questions? We Have Answers!

Q. Is this is too good to be true?
A. Nope! Everything you have read is true. We will work on your behalf through the entire process.

Q. How much will you charge me?
A. NOTHING! Yes, that is correct. We will not charge you anything.

Q. If you don't charge me then how do you get paid?
A. Great question! We receive a referral fee from the dealership when you purchase your vehicle.

Q. If you do all of this work for me, am I obligated to buy?
A. Absolutely not. We will not force, pressure or coerce you to purchase. We understand things change.

Q. The dealer said that they won't give me the rate that you show in your calculator. What do I do?
A. Tell them that rate is what it takes to make the deal. If they still don't give it to you, then contact us we'll step in and help.

Q. What if I'm not financing. Will you still help negotiate my deal?
A. Of course! Whether you're financing or paying cash we'll help any way that we can.

Don't be this guy!
