More knowledgeable SEs?.....errr, I don’t think so

 

Typical buyer profile oso probably dunno much abt cars and only ask basic questions like Good FC or not? Good resale or not? Reliable or not? Can get COE or not?

 

SE only hv to say Yes, Yes, Yes, Yes and fill in paperwork

 

Easy job. No wonder Inchcape cut commission

 

In general that's true.

Especially the young and pretty ones, although I don't mind going for test drive with them!

 

But I've also encountered 1 or 2 older ones quite knowledgeable.

Actually the most impressive SE I had while just shopping around last year was from BM. So not really lah. Too bad he was trying to sell the vios which wasn't really a competitive product at that price.

Probably result in more pushy SEs, which I hate.

Freebies will also be lesser, since they come from SE commission.

I support DIY direct though. Cut down all commissions from car purchase to insurance to loans

DIY not necessarily translate to lower price.. they can charge more and there’s nothing the buyer can do except to walk to another brand and then DIY and then another and then another..

Stop calling these people salesperson/salesman/saleswoman

 

They dont fit the word sales and to label them as that is an insult to the word. They are merely ORDER TAKERS.

 

No diff from mcdonalds counter crew, walk into mcdonalds is just dunno want to eat what, but surely eating at mcdonalds. In other words confirm sale just whats the sale about.

 

Dont be fooled by their income 6-8k, thats all besides the referral for trade in cars to outside dealer, we call ping pong. Each car easily 500-1000, so now you know where your trade in value goes to.

Sour? Oh no no no.... I never respected Agent sales staff, like i say, to label them as sales is an insult to the sales word.

 

I only regard them as order takers and nothing more than that, ask them about other brands apart from the brand they selling, they know nuts, i would say even their own brand they also wont know most of the things. You never seen how they sell Altis during 2006-2008 boom. Q numbers were issued, and busy jotting down orders, selling? No need, just take orders will do.

Not really la. I walk into bm also nv buy their car

 

BM meaning BMW or Borneo? Maybe they didnt mange to take your order. But for the rest, basically queue up to place order.

you can always self-sell the your own car.. and see whether you can get the same better returns.. 

 

don't begrudge other people their livelihood...

But can't an order be called a sale? Orders taker cannot be a sales-man or sales-woman?
