ONTARIO - Personal Auto Brokers (NOTE: CLOSED FOR RELOCATION UNTIL OCT. 1, 2007)
http://www.personalautobrokers.com/

If you live in the Golden Horseshoe or the GTA and are looking for someone to help you with your purchase of a new vehicle, you're in luck! Gina Goldenberg and her staff's stated mission is "to locate a vehicle that is right for you while saving you time, money and hassles". They consult with you to confirm your vehicle choice, find it, negotiate the best price, and manage all the paperwork. All this for a flat fee of $200, plus taxes.

Gina says customers can save up to $3,000 or more. She offers a 100% satisfaction guarantee. For $200, how can you go wrong?

Pros:
Secure payment is available through 2checkout.com for both the initial deposit and balance. If you have a trade-in, Personal Auto Brokers will also help negotiate the best price for it -- at no extra charge.

Cons:
Not particularly helpful for folks outside of Ontario. No financing or extended warranty service.

How to:

  • Start the broker searching for your next vehicle
    From the main page, click on the 'Click here if you already know which car you wish to buy' link. This takes you to a page with a simple form on it. Fill out your name, contact info and vehicle info to get the ball rolling.

ONTARIO - Car$mart Inc.
http://www.carsmartinc.com/

CarSmart deals in new cars only. Their fee is $500 plus GST to find the best new vehicle for you, negotiate a price, handle all the paperwork and even deliver it to your door. However, nowhere on the site does it tell you how to get this process started - sure there are the usual telephone and email links at the bottom of the page but there isn't even a contact form that allows you indicate what your vehicle price range might be and if you've formed any vague ideas about what vehicle(s) you might be interested in. Weird.

Pros:
The site is easy to navigate and lays out what Car$mart does simply and effectively.

Cons:
No contact form to get the processs started. No information about the company and/or its staff - in a business where the 'personal touch' is so important there is nothing offered about the company's members, their experience in the automotive industry or the company's standing in the community (i.e. member of Better Business Bureau).

How to:

  • Start the broker searching for your next vehicle
    There is no way to indicate that you wish to start Car$mart searching for your vehicle other than sending them an email or telephoning or faxing them. No contact form where you can indicate what vehicle and price range you're interested in is available on the site.

BRITISH COLUMBIA, ALBERTA - BetterCarBuy : Great deals on cars & trucks, for BC & Alberta
http://www.bettercarbuy.com/

Better Car Buy operates a little differently than the other sites in this category in that they do not charge a fee for their service. Presumably their fee is rolled in to the price of the vehicle. They do not offer the consultation to help you choose the right car for you that other brokers do. You specify what you want and they come back to you with a price and financing (should you need it).

Pros:
Better Car Buy has a secure form where you can indicate your vehicle preferences as well as your contact information. Better Car Buy deals in both new and used vehicles.

Cons:
There is nothing on this site about the company - I would feel a little better if I knew more about the company or if there was a privacy statement (even though they are using secure forms). There is no turnaround guarantee given when you submit the Search Request form - it would be nice to know when someone might get back to me.

BRITISH COLUMBIA - Quinella Auto - Porfessional Automobile Broker Vancouver BC
http://www.autosalesandlease.com/

This well-laid out site explains very clearly what a broker is and why and how they are able to get better prices. If you are interested in having Greg Huynh (the face of Quinella Auto) get you a vehicle simply fill out the Request a Quote form.

Pros:
Interesting material on the site. Fairly good quote request form.

Cons:
No indication of whether you will be paying a fee for this service or if it is taken from the dealer. Quote request form is not secure and no turnaround guarantee is given.
