Visiting an exotic car dealership is nothing like going to, say a Ford or Chevy dealership. It is a completely different world. You may be surprised to learn that exotic car dealerships actually welcome casual visitors as well as interested customers. With that said, there are certain unwritten rules that you should follow, exotic car dealership etiquette, if you will. By knowing how to conduct yourself you can move from casual visitor to dealership friend – and that’s where the fun really begins.
Call ahead. Sure, you could just walk in and start looking around, but by calling first you establish yourself as someone who understands the ins and outs of the exotic car world. It shows respect and takes you from a level of curious onlooker to serious enthusiast or even potential customer.
Get placed with a client advisor. Before you come in, call and ask to speak to the general manager or sales manager. Quite often they will talk with you to determine your personal needs and try to find a client advisor they can place you with who is best suited to help you.
Ask questions. Make a list of questions that you want to ask during your visit. Think about your needs, what you like and what you are interested in. Do a little research on the cars that interest you so you can ask relevant questions. If you are not quite ready to purchase, that is okay. Most exotic car sales professionals will still happily answer your questions and even show you around.
Make a token purchase. Okay, this is not a hard, fast rule, but it helps as you establish a relationship with the dealership and sales professional. Bring some cash with you and make a small purchase in the dealership boutique. Most exotic car dealerships have branded gift items and apparel for sale. Don’t be shy to ask for something within your price range.
Don’t damage the merchandise. Watch your backpacks, purses and other items. Don’t allow them to bump into the cars. If you sit in a vehicle, take care that you don’t have studs on your back pockets or jewelry that can scratch the seats. In other words, take extra special care and show respect to the dealership, the brand and that heart-stopping, beautiful car.
