Locate a Vehicle and Negotiate the Best Price for You

Jim Hoff’s Vehicle Locating Service will negotiate the best price on any vehicle in the inventory of another dealer.  All without the hassle and price haggling you would encounter by running around and attempting to negotiate with multiple dealers.  With this brokering service, you save time and money by allowing us to do all the leg work for you.  All you need to do is arrive at the pre-arranged appointment at the selling dealer’s location to see the car, drive it and buy it at the lowest price we have negotiated for you from the selling dealer.  Our fee (typically $500-$700) is included in the price of the car and is normally paid directly to Jim Hoff’s Vehicle Locating Service from the selling dealer.

This service is also available on brand new cars.  Our goal being to get our clients into the car at a price as close to dealer cost as possible.  You may see car buying programs from Costco and the like, but our super low overhead allows us to beat even those prices – every time!


Purchase a Vehicle at a Dealer-Only Auction

As a licensed and bonded Auto Broker, Jim Hoff’s Vehicle Locating Service has access to dealer-only auctions where auto manufacturers, finance companies, fleet companies and dealers looking to liquidate inventory sell their vehicles via an auction format.  This service is offered under very limited circumstances, typically for very difficult to source specialty vehicles.
