Tropical Financial launches AutoNationDirect's Auto Buying Service
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL (10/25/13)--Tropical Financial Credit Union is providing a new auto buying service for its 50,000 members through a partnership with AutoNationDirect.
 
Personal Auto Consultant offers credit union members a concierge experience by assisting them throughout the entire buying process.  The service provides credit unions with means to fill their direct auto loans without their members following the traditional finance process in the dealership.
 
"This is another example of how we, as a not-for-profit cooperative, are looking out for the financial well-being of our members," said Tropical Financial Credit Union CEO/President Richard Helber. "This service eliminates the hassle of car shopping and gets them a great deal." 
 
With AutoNationDirect, members don't have to go to the dealership until they are ready to drive and buy.  Car buying experts literally stand in for the member--shopping and comparing cars, evaluating their trade-in, coordinating financing, and preparing documents-- before the member arrives at the dealership to drive and take delivery of the vehicle. 
Consultants are automotive experts that earn the same amount, no matter what the member buys, pays or trades.
 
Tropical Financial also offers a resource on its website where members can perform research before purchasing a vehicle. The web site offers a source for determining trade-in value on previously owned vehicles, financial calculators, car buying articles and pricing information.
