Most Americans would tie self reliance to finances, saying it means they have jobs where they can earn enough to meet monthly bills, and where there is money tucked away for unexpected expenses so they can survive challenging health or financial stress if necessary. For some it means their major assets are protected no matter what happens. Sometimes being self-reliant means identifying and asking for help from knowledgeable people who can help us make smart, informed choices. Whatever self-reliance means to you, identifying the key elements of it will help you find the assurance you’re looking for. One of those elements is adequate health insurance.
Car shopping: according to a 2014 Car Week survey by Edmunds.com, it’s more stressful than getting married. But purchasing a new vehicle doesn’t have to be a hassle. Mike Hallewell of MikesAutoShack.com can take some of the anxiety out of auto buying. He’s been doing what he loves since 1998 and is happy to make the car buying process as easy as possible for his clients.
With a proven track record of over 20 years and thousands of cars purchased for his clients, MikesAutoShack.com saves customers time without sacrificing quality. The process works like this: Mike compiles a list of cars that go through local auto auctions. Many auctions are big, with thousands of cars and hundreds of dealers on site. MikesAutoShack.com lists details for every car at these dealer-only auto auctions which, prior to the auctions, his clients can browse. From the comfort of their own homes, potential purchasers can look for a car and call Mike for car details and past pricing trends to determine their price parameters.
“You’re going to tell me the price point, I’m going to tell you the year you can get for that. It’s just really easy, straightforward and down to earth, and you are going to save approximately $3,000-$5,000 over a typical showroom price,” Mike says.
MikesAutoShack.com customers are paying for convenience, but they’re also paying for his expertise.
“You’re paying for my experience, my relationships at the auctions, the ability I have to get good cars at a fair price—that’s a screaming deal,” he says.
If Mike can buy the car at or below the customer’s preferred cost, they pay him a $699.00 fee (high end autos such as Lexus, Mercedes, etc., command a $1,000 fee), plus the car’s auction price and a doc fee of $299—but if Mike cannot purchase the car, the buyer owes nothing. The system is reliable and upfront: no hidden fees, no add-ons, and the security that comes from knowing Mike is a licensed, insured and bonded automobile dealer with decades of know-how. Mike buys late-model, low-mileage cars with full factory warranties—a win in any car buyer’s book.
“It’s a no-lose situation. The stress is virtually gone,” Mike says. “We have a 20+ year track record and have sold thousands of cars. It is a proven method.”
In an age of high-pressure sales pitches and shady dealers, the advantage to using MikesAutoShack.com is that the process is “stress and hassle-free,” Mike says. “There’s no pressure whatsoever, and you save serious money.”
MikesAutoShack.com prides itself on a level of quality and expertise that creates customer loyalty. “I want to make sure everyone comes back,” he says. “My typical customer is a repeat customer. A huge percentage have bought from us before.”
