Auto Buying Services
Let us help you get the right price for your next vehicle.
You don’t have to drive all over town to find the right vehicle, negotiate the right price, and set up the right financing. With all the great Auto Services here at Georgetown FCU, we’ll get you behind the wheel in no time.
CARcierge is our new, full-service auto-buying program.
When you're ready to purchase your new car, let us do all the work for you. We can get you the vehicle you want, without the hassle or stress of haggling with dealership salespeople.
Simply tell us what make, model, color and options you'd like, and we'll find the exact car you want, negotiate the price, and handle the purchase. And, in most cases, we can even have the car delivered to the credit union, so you can take possession of your new car when you close your loan.
How it works:
- First, get pre-approved. This will help ensure you don't waste your time looking at a car that's not within your budget.
- Once you know what you can afford, test drive the vehicle(s) of interest within your budget to narrow down your selection.
- Contact your insurance provider and ask for an estimate for insuring the vehicles you've narrowed down your selection to. There's often a difference in cost for insuring different vehicles.
- Once you've selected your vehicle, give us a call and let us know the make, model, and features and we'll take it from there. Once we've found the car and negotiated the price, we'll contact you to approve the transaction. Then, we'll set up a date for you to sign your loan documents, and take possession of your new vehicle.
It's that simple.
If you're in the market for an new vehicle and don't want to haggle over price or run all over town for the best deal, use our CARcierge service, and leave the hard stuff to us. Call 202.687.8175 for more information.
