CarMarshal FAQ – Buying, Selling Used Car Questions CarMarshal FAQ – Buying, Selling Used Car Questions


How does CarMarshal take the stress and frustration out of buying your new or used vehicle?


·         You save time, energy & money by finding your vehicle on our site rather than driving from dealership to dealership in vain.

·         You avoid wasting more valuable time and energy haggling over prices at the dealership against well-trained experts in the art of negotiation.

·         You receive offers from multiple dealers for your top two vehicle choices instead of just one.

·         We contact the dealerships on your behalf, searching for the best out of the door price available in your market.

·         We have access to more than 100000 new and used vehicles 2006 and newer.

·         We give you certificates for every dealership that meets your search criteria.


In other words, we price shop for you until we find the best price – in addition to manufacturer and dealership discounts.


How does CarMarshal work?


Whether you live in a rural town or a busy hub like New York City, Boston or the Washington DC metropolitan area (DMV), our easy process helps you find the best new or used car prices:


1.      Visit CarMarshal, enter your zip code and search for the vehicle of your dreams.

2.      Browse the search results (search results are zip code + 200 mile radius) and click “Negotiate” for the vehicle you’re interested in.

3.      Create your account by entering your email address and password.

4.      Select a secondary vehicle you’re interested in, just in case your dream vehicle is not within your area. Sometimes, competing manufacturers will give better discounts to “steal” you away from their competition.

5.      We take the wheel and contact the dealerships on your behalf. Soon you’ll receive offers from dealers regarding the vehicle(s) you selected. Simply login to CarMarshal using your email address and password to review the dealer offers. The dealerships will not have your information until you are satisfied with your price and option. You remain anonymous until you decide to contact the dealer(s) with the best price and vehicle selection.

6.      When you are ready, just print out your certificate(s) and contact the dealer(s) whose offers you liked best to ensure that vehicle is still available.

7.      You pick up the vehicle you want at the price you want.
