As reported several weeks ago, I asked if anyone out there was a Ford dealer. One loooongtime fellow Woody Boater raised his hand and said he could help. And holy crap did he ever. One of our longtime pals, Don Ploetner owns a cool company called I-Deal Acquisitions .
Which helps people find exactly, and I mean exactly what they want and need, and then knows how to negotiate the deal in a fair and reasonable way. You never talk to the dealer. Now I enjoy the process, always have, I suppose its because I know the business from the back end. Having done automotive marketing for 40 years, it’s kinda simple and the dealers are great guys. BUT, at some point they become salesmen, and all you are is a car sale. I have found its from years of being abused by customers. So someone that knows the process is a win win for the dealer and you the buyer.
Meet I-Deal Acquisitions . THis is a no BS 100% good way to go. I-Deal is your dealer, your salesmen, your advocate, and with over 30 years in the business of car sales, knows how to navigate the process. Not only did I get what I wanted without any work, and I mean down to weather guard floor mats, The dealer delivered to my door. Mind you there isn’t a Ford dealer within 100 miles of me. I filled out the final paperwork and it arrived two days later at my doorstep. BAM.
I-Deal Acquisitions isn’t a car/boat dealer killer, we need car and boat dealers. But the sales process has been broken for decades. And Auto Trader, Carvana, and others are hated by the dealers. Not because what you think, Those companies get money for the leads, and in a way worse than the dealers. Little secret, you can get a better deal without those places. BUT, with I-deal, you get it all. Because you pay I-deal. No secret back end money, kick backs.. money in the trunk crap.
And I have to say, he earned that fee over 100% from what I expected to pay in the first place. And here is the best part. He is a true Woody Boater. Knows the boats bigtime, and is family here. He helped me spec the truck in ways I did not know about. The F250 is the perfect Woodyboatermobile.
You all know him and knew his day Don Sr, who was without a doubt the funniest guy around. Yes, he used to own a Cadillac Dealership on Staten Island. The stories. OH…MY…GAD! Vinny, Fat Tony, Twitchy Joe… AHHHHHHHHH!
So if you are in the market for a Car, Boat or Airplane! CLICK HERE AND FIND OUT MORE. Its greta to have the dealer on your side for a change.
