What’s the value add for getting from Ricky Tay or GS over komoco?
If the same, might as well get straight from komoco right?
I visited Komoco a few times (at least 2) before buying from GS (on the first visit, without test drive), reason:
* I visited both showroom in very casual way: T with jeans or T with 3 quarter short.
* I'm not tight on budget but I don't think I should spend much on car (as it'll be my wife first car, dent and scratch is expected)
* This is my first car in SG, so 0% NCD and no trade in.
* GS is close to my in law place, so I literally walk from my in-law place to it.
1) Sales person (and maybe the company pricing) is not to my liking. When I asked about the pricing and freebies, the sales person refer me to everything in the brochure politely and (in some case) ask when my current car COE will expire (which it's clearly probing how urgent you want/need a car), that's basically the end of the customer engagement
2) For GS automotive, I messaged it over Facebook that interested about pricing, then it offer me 2k discount over the list priced (as shown in Komoco price list @ SG carport). The catch is it takes out the 3 years free servicing (whether 3 year free servicing worth SGD 2k or not is a separate topic)
1) Komoco showroom is more presentable: The interior (lighting, flooring ad etc) is nicer, the sales person in Komoco is in formal attire as well. GS is a bit like high end 2nd hand car dealer, probably it's because it tries to save electricity by not switching on all interior light.
2) Sales person wise, Komoco one looks professional. As I didn't buy from Komoco, can't comment on the practise. For GS, I feel the sales person can be more professional one, he did made some mirror mistake like when should I be expecting letter from LTA.
