Ground Control

The car dealer is one of the few remaining people in America that you still have to routinely haggle with. While salespeople and high-powered businessmen may love the challenge of negotiating a lot, the average person typically finds the process stressful and exhausting. The uncertainty and doubt make the buying process more complicated than the majority of people would care to deal with. However, with a few simple tips, you can turn this stressful process into an enjoyable experience.

There are two major statistics that every salesman cares about, whether they're selling automobiles or kitchen knives: the close rate and average ticket. Both of these numbers affect their ranking within the company, annual perks, and other rewards. In a sales field where every closed deal is a big dollar amount, the close rate is far more important than the average ticket. Remember that the employee who's selling you this vehicle wishes to make the sale more than anything else. He's not interested in squeezing a few extra dollars out of you to boost his commission; he wishes to exceed his quota for the month so he can get approved for a perk or a vacation. If you go to a respectable dealership with a good rating online, you should feel comfortable that the company is giving you a fair, honest price.

The easiest way to foster fear is through a lack of information. When you participate in a negotiation without doing the proper prep work, there is no way for you to know if the salesman is giving you all the facts. Know what type of vehicle you want, as well as the exact specs, features, and upgrades that are available. You should also plan to visit more than one car dealer and compare prices. One of the easiest ways to create a frank conversation about price is to simply come out and say what you were offered at another location.

One school of thought is that most drivers are not being involved in incidents as a result of their lack of technical skills behind the wheel; it is not even their lack of knowledge of the rules of the road. It is their attitude and behaviour behind the wheel that lets them down, time after time. Simply put, it is our attitude that drives our behaviour.

So what changes when we get in the car? Why does a lovely person who would hold the door open for you change behind the wheel? The very same person, who would forgive someone for making a genuine mistake. Yet on the road they would beep, use unsavoury hand signals, shout and swear at a person for simply making a genuine error.

Snapping as a result of somebody else's mistake could be viewed as just instinctive. But, allowing that anger to become counterproductive will only make matters worse, so yes be angry but control your anger, remember emotion plays a huge part in our ability to make rational decisions. You could end up making the wrong decision and end up being the person who does cause somebody else to be hurt.
