A CAR salesman has claimed professionals will ignore any attempt by buyers to grab a good deal and still sell them the priciest vehicle.
According to this apparent wheeler-dealer, salespeople at a car showroom may not have the best interests of the customer at heart.
The TikTok user known as “@str8_rrrussian” took to the social media site to reveal all to his 220,000 followers.
In a post called “How to sell cars: learn to ignore certain things” which has been viewed more than 125,000 times, he revealed some of the supposed tricks of the trade.
Facing the camera, the man starts by saying: “Number one, they come in and say, we’re not buying anything. We’re just looking.”
He then adds what customers say is ignored because “they’re lying”.
The man continues: “Number two, they say this is way too expensive. I cannot afford it.”
He then says: “We also ignore it, they’re lying. They can afford it.”
The third point, he claims is when a potential customer asks: “What is your best deal?”
Once again, the man says this is also ignored and they still sell them their most expensive set of wheels.
Then the man says: “The point of all this, they all say the same thing.”
He said this is simply ignored and “the same steps” are followed every single time.
The brief clip has gained 2,580 likes and generated 236 comments.
Viewers were left divided on what the man said.
Some were backing the TikToker, with one saying: “Buyers are liars.”
While another posted: “’What’s your best price?’ Is the most frustrating question.”
A third wrote: “They lie, they lie, they lie.”
However, many expressed their frustrations with car salespeople.
One said: “Works both ways, ignore everything salesman says, roll my eyes knowing they’re full of it.”
Another added: “I’m the same with the sales people, they lie.”
“This is why salesmen are a dying business and car dealerships are going online like Tesla,” wrote a third.
Elsewhere, a car salesman revealed the “easy” way to double the price you can charge when cashing in on your motor.
Another car salesman has shown how to negotiate the best price for your new car.
While another salesman believes that part-exchange is still the best way to get a new car and will save you money.
