Car Shipping Carriers wants to let the public know of the best bang for their buck. When people think about buying their next vehicle what comes to mind are the local dealerships and searching for a car online. Local dealerships will have the vehicles in stock and you can drive it home the same day. When you purchase a vehicle online you will probably have to have it shipped across the country, but the savings could be worth it. Well, what if there was a way to buy a vehicle the same day, have fixed pricing and no hassles. That is exactly what people are getting when they make a Costco car purchase. YES… Costco sells cars and were the #2 seller of vehicles in 2014 by selling approximately 400,000 vehicles.
When buying a car through Costco there are no sales people hassling you to buy a car you don’t really want, no haggling with the pricing and no auto haulers shipping the vehicle. It is plain, simple and easy.
Why is Costco becoming a HUGE part of the auto industry? It comes down to the core of Costco. Costco does not need to make much money on the cars they sell because they make their money from membership fees. Costco makes very little money on the products in the actual store. They make a profit, but it is not a huge profit. They make the bulk of their money from membership fees. Costco also has an auto buying service negotiating the best pricing from auto manufacturers.
An example of this is a 2015 Toyota Highlander. Costco was able to sell it $4,000 under the manufacturers’ suggested price because of the bargaining power it has from the auto buying service and because it can make a small profit on each car and be happy. Dealerships want to make thousands on each sale whereas Costco may make hundreds.
Costco is becoming a huge threat of dealers and the winners of this are the customers buying the car. They get great pricing, a stress-free experience and the vehicle that they truly want. It is a winning combination.
