FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Auto Broker?

An Auto Broker is a person who uses his/her extensive knowledge of, and contacts within, the retail automotive industry to represent buyers throughout the car purchasing or leasing process. He/she works on behalf of the buyer, not the auto dealership, and can typically acquire any make or model of vehicle. An Auto Broker researches the requested makes, models, options, and colors, and then locates the vehicle that best matches a buyer’s criteria. When negotiations begin, your auto broker will use his/her industry knowledge and experience to get you the most aggressive price or lease terms possible.

What & Who is AMG CARS INC?

AMG CARS INC is a DMV Licensed and Bonded Used Car Dealer & Auto Brokerage in the State of California. AMG CARS INC was created to simplify and enhance the car shopping experience. In doing so, we have perfected delivering the right car at the lowest price to your home or office. Our clientele includes Hollywood stars, Actors, Musicians, Athletes, Business Executives, and more. If you want an easier car shopping experience than going to a dealership, and a lower monthly payment, AMG CARS INC was made for you.

I Am New To The Leasing Process. How Does It Work?

The process is very simple, a simple phone call, online credit application submission, or a quick drive to our office will get the process started. You will let us know of the particular make, model and features you would like for your future car, and we will go through our database and find you your dream car. Once you are happy with the terms, we will go ahead and run a credit check and acquire the car. In most cases we will deliver the car to you the same day or within 24 hours.

What Advantages Do I Get For Leasing A Car?

Depending on your needs, there are many advantages of leasing a car. When you lease a car, depending on your credit rating/history, you have the option of not putting a down-payment (if you desire a higher payment) or you can put a down-payment if you want a lower payment. This is because you are not paying for the whole car, just the portion of the car’s value over the lease period. Second advantage is lower upfront costs such as down payments, drive offs, and generally a deposit for the first monthly payment as well as tax and registration fees are included. Should you wish to not purchase the car at the residual value when the lease is completed, you can turn in the car and walk away; or lease a brand-new car.

Are There Any Disadvantages To A Car Lease?

As with any contract there are some disadvantages such as early termination fees, Insurance costs and car millage restrictions. In many cases the advantages far exceed the disadvantages if the car is maintained and kept to contract terms.

How much does it cost to work with AMG CARS INC?

Most deals that are brokered by AMG CARS INC have no up-front fees to the client. We provide our clients with a free car buying service.

All future payments will be made to the financing bank. (Information Based on Leased Deals.) Vehicles purchased will incur up-front fees.

We can find any make and model foreign and domestic you are interested in. We are not tied to any one dealership so even hard to find models are not a problem. We can find everything from domestics to imports, economy to luxury, hybrids to exotics.

Are you a car dealership?

We are a fully licensed Used Car Dealership and Auto Brokerage with the Department of Motor Vehicles of California. A huge advantage of working with us is that we are not tied to any one manufacturer nor one dealership. We work for you & always have your best interest as our focus.

Do you handle trade-ins?

Absolutely! We have a network of wholesalers along with dealers so you’re sure to get the best price for your trade. In most cases we can send someone out to appraise your trade, and usually we can deliver your new car and take your trade at the same time. It doesn’t get much easier!

Who handles the financing part of buying my new or used car?

AMG CARS INC has sophisticated software, so we know which banks have the best possible terms & rates for the vehicle you want to lease or purchase. Unlike dealers, we do not have any incentive to quote only their captive lender and this allows us to find you the best terms possible. Remember we work for you nor the dealership.

Do you take care of my insurance requirements?

If you need help with your insurance paperwork and rates, we can refer you to our preferred auto insurance broker or agent who will work with you directly.

How Do I Get Started?

Give us a call or shoot us an email to chat about what kind of car you’re looking for, your budget, and anything else you think is important for us to know. You can head over to our online Credit Application form right here.

Where are you located?

We are based in Los Angeles, CA but we are a national company & can help you no matter what city or state you are in. Please let us know more about where you are and what you are looking for.

How does my new car get delivered?

We drive it right to your door along with the paperwork and a full demo of the car! Really! We can also arrange for pickup at the dealership or our office.

New Car Purchase

With nearly 50 manufacturers to choose from, buying a new car can be a daunting task. Fortunately, AMG CARS INC can assist you with any make or model you are looking for. By leveraging our expansive network of suppliers, we will save you the time and the expense of running around and negotiating. Because we have multiple Dealers for each manufacturer, we can ensure that you receive extremely competitive pricing, and that we locate the correct vehicle (even if it means transporting it from hundreds of miles away). We will do all the work for you. All you have to do is contact us.

New Lease Options

AMG CARS INC has the ability to walk you through the “ins” and “outs” of vehicle leasing, which is often even more confusing than a purchase. We’ll help you understand what terms like residual value, capitalized cost, acquisition fee, and money factor mean, and we’ll only get you into a lease that’s right for you by making sure to ask all the right questions about your use of the car. Once we do, we’ll help you determine which terms are best for you, and then calculate payments for any make or model. Mileage, down payment and lease length are all your choice! Depending on how long you want to keep your next car, leasing could be a better option for you than buying! Did you know that some cars are better leased than they are purchased? Are you aware of the tax incentives there are to business owners? Did you know that there are fees at the end of some leases? We make sure to leave no stone un-turned, and to educate you every step of the way. Contact us to find out more.

Pre-Owned Vehicle Purchase

AMG CARS INC has access to thousands of pre-owned vehicles nationwide. Rather than spending your precious time running around, searching through inventory after inventory, making numerous phone calls, and negotiating time and time again on vehicle after vehicle…let us do all the work for you, and be your single point of contact!

We promise to hear what your needs are and to find the right used car, with the right mileage, in the right price range and in the right condition as a result. We’ll provide you with a detailed history report for any vehicle you choose, and we’ll let you know about any available warranties, extended or otherwise. If we wouldn’t drive it, we won’t even bother telling you about it! Tell us what you’re looking for, and we’ll take care of the rest! All you have to do is contact us.

*Please note: When it comes to price range, there is no high or low limit. However, vehicles at a price point below $10,000 (and that we feel comfortable standing behind) are far more difficult to locate than those at any other price point. We definitely do not discourage those looking in this range from contacting us, but want them to be aware, in advance, that those vehicles can take more time to locate and acquire. *

Trade-In's & Lease Returns

Selling your current vehicle can be just as difficult as trying to buy a new one. AMG CARS INC can make that process easy for you too. Allow us to do a detailed appraisal, and we will ensure that we get you a fair value for your vehicle.

Even if you are leasing a vehicle, there may be better options for you than just turning it in. You could have equity in your leased vehicle, or it could be less expensive to trade in your car with any damage it may have than turning it in at the end of your lease! Contact Us, and we will help you determine if that’s the case for you even if you’re not buying or leasing a car from us!

Financing, Factory Rebates, & Incentives

At AMG CARS INC, there are a number of different ways that we can help you with your financing needs, but our goal is to help you attain the combination of financing and available incentives that make the most sense for you. And, if in print, online or on television, you learn that there’s an available incentive, they’re also available to you through AMG CARS INC.

We have a number of different options for you to choose from. We can help you arrange financing through the manufacturer, our own channels and third-party relationships, or if you prefer…your bank, your credit union, your line of credit or any number of other financing alternatives.

At AMG CARS INC we use extensive software and management programs, if there are incentives or rebates available on the car you’re choosing, we’ll help you decide what combination of financing and incentives are going to work best for you. Could it be that taking a rebate and a standard finance rate are your best option? Or, should you forego the rebate and take advantage of a special financing offer? Either way, we’ll help you understand all the scenarios, and help you decide which outcome best suits you and your needs.

At AMG CARS INC, we understand that financing can be a sensitive issue, so maintaining your privacy and getting you financing you feel comfortable with is of the utmost importance to us. We can’t feel good about the financing and incentives you take advantage of unless you do!

GAP insurance is a product that protects against those kinds of pitfalls. Ask us if GAP insurance is right for you.

Will My Car Be Covered Under The Manufacturer’s Warranty?

YES! Your vehicle will be covered under all manufacturer warranties, guarantees, and maintenance plans. You do not miss out on anything by leasing or buying with AMG CARS INC versus the dealership. All Leases and Certified Pre-Owned Vehicles are all covered under all manufacturer warranties, guarantees, and maintenance plans.

Can I get My Vehicle Serviced at a Dealership That’s Closest to Me?

YES! Any new car dealership specific to your brand of vehicle can service your vehicle. Even if the service needed is covered under warranty or your maintenance plan, you can go to your car brands dealer that is closest to you and not pay out of pocket.

How Long Does The Process Take?

This is on a case by case basis, we have had deals done within a few hours, but most deals are done and delivered within 1 to 2 days. In some cases, however, expect the transaction to be completed within six business days for most common vehicles. **If your vehicle is hard to find or rare we have seen it can take up to 4-12 weeks.**

Can I Return My Current Leased Vehicle to AMG CARS INC?

YES! We can handle your lease return for you at no extra cost. Many times, we can even take you out of your current leased vehicle before your lease is due.

Are there any miscellaneous or hidden fees I need to be aware of?

NO. When your deal is finalized and before your new car is delivered to you, we provide you with your total out the door cost or down payment and monthly payment. When your vehicle is delivered to you with all paperwork ready to go, all figures will be exactly as discussed between you and your AMG CARS INC consultant. No surprises, no hidden fees.

What Is The Difference Between AMG CARS INC and a Retail Dealership?

AMG CARS INC does not haggle, stress, or push the client unlike the dealership. AMG CARS INC is in it for the client and not for thousand(s) of dollars paycheck unlike dealerships. We work for our clients not the dealerships. Its always about the client before the commission. Your time is very valuable to us, its not about the commission.

Who Do I Make My Monthly Payments To?

No. Your payments are made to the bank/lender which approved your lease with the best terms possible. Most of the time, the bank is the same as the brand. For example, most BMW leases are through BMW Financial Services, Lexus leases are through Lexus Financial Services, etc. There are times when a third-party bank offers a much better payment for a specific model so we will use that bank instead. For example, US Bank, Chase Auto Finance and Bank of the West typically offer much more better lease programs for the Toyota Tundra, so in that case we would use one of those banks and save you more money. Either way, your payments are made to the best possible lender for your specific car. You do not make payments to AMG CARS INC.

Do I have to go to the DMV to register my vehicle?

NO. We handle all DMV paperwork, so you don’t have to! Your new car will get licensed and registered with the Department of Motor Vehicles for you and you will automatically receive your license plates and stickers in the mail.

Will you really get me the best price?

Yes. With our extensive automotive network with dealerships nationwide we can provide you with the best price available. In almost all cases we can negotiate a better price and a superior all-around transaction. There could be unusual exceptions, where timing and circumstances would mean we missed the “absolute lowest price”, but we have not heard of that happening yet.

I like the convenience of your services, but does it cost more to use AMG CARS INC than going directly to a new car dealer?

No. AMG CARS INC has developed enormous buying power and has completed thousands of automobile transactions. We also shop nationally for the best price. While we do make money (any business must to stay in business!), our compensation is developed by negotiating deep discounts from our vendors, not by overcharging our customers. Our commitment to our customers is that our vehicle pricing and/or payments will be at or below market without requiring our customers to negotiate. You’ve got better things to do with your time.

I recently filed bankruptcy. Can you still arrange financing for me?

Yes, AMG CARS INC has credit professionals who works with several banks assisting credit challenged individuals. We have created solutions for many of our customers and have put them on the road to rebuilding their credit in a vehicle they are comfortable driving.

Why would an auto dealership want to work with an auto broker?

Not all Dealerships like working with Auto Brokers. But most like us because we represent qualified clients, ready to do business, and who are generally eager to complete a transaction. Additionally, AMG CARS INC makes the process easy for both the buying and selling parties. We know what you want, and we know what they need. It makes the process highly efficient, and if they treat our clients well, we bring them even more business.

Do you provide financing and leasing?

Yes. AMG CARS INC has built relationships with the best independent finance and lease companies in the USA. The banks and lease companies work hard to earn our finance and lease business due to our substantial volume and the credit quality of our customers. We also can facilitate any manufacturer’s finance or lease program as well. AMG CARS INC always completes a thorough evaluation of your finance and lease options based on your credit using our sophisticated technical tools and presents you with several ideas from which to choose. Our commitment to you is that our finance and lease options will always be at or below market without requiring you to negotiate.

Do I have to sell my trade-in myself?

No, we can find a buyer for you. AMG CARS INC works with a wide range of dealerships and wholesalers, all of which are in the market for used cars. We will help you prepare your vehicle for an appraisal and then will request competitive bids from multiple sources. Or, if you prefer, you are certainly entitled to sell it yourself.

Do I need to hire an Auto Broker to Buy a Car? Can I do it Myself?

No. You do not have to hire an auto broker to help you buy a car you want. You can definitely go buy a car on your own at any dealership nationwide, but you won’t be able to get the prices we get on a daily basis. We know all the dealer tricks and secrets we can go under and bellow what is stated and listed on paper. We work hard for our connections & network; we work hard to put thousands of clients in their dream cars.

You do not need to hire a Real Estate Agent to buy a new home, house, etc. But you do that because that person is an expert is that field knows all the secrets and tricks in the market. You don’t need to hire an accountant or CPA to do your taxes, but you do because that person is an expert in that field. You do not need to take your car to a mechanic to get it repaired you can do it yourself, but you don’t because that person is an expert.

Buy a car with Confidence & Expertise. Let AMG CARS INC be you next car buying service. We take care of each and every customer as we would take care of ourselves. We want the best in everything, and we want our clients to have the same.
