CARtegrity is a consumer-focused vehicle consulting firm offering concierge services to individuals wishing to purchase or lease or sell vehicles in an easy, convenient and cost-effective manner. Our team has more than 75 years of combined experience in the automotive industry and financial world buying and selling cars, and negotiating complex financial transactions. Working for the consumer, we find vehicles and develop relationships with car dealers to produce the best deals for our customers.
We do the vehicle searching and talking, arrange test drives, and negotiate price, financing and service plans. And, we can even coordinate for the vehicle to be dropped off at your front door!
CARtegrity works for you and not a car dealership.
We are a relationship-based automotive and finance specialist and seek to get our customers the best price possible on a vehicle. CARtegrity wants to ease the stresses associated with buying a vehicle and shorten the time it takes to complete a purchase. Most importantly, we are focused on building relationships with the people we work with and want to create customers for life!
CARtegrity will save customers time and money when we guide you to purchase the vehicle best suited to their needs and budget. Using our extensive industry knowledge, we will negotiate all aspects of a purchase or sale. We will never encourage you to buy what the dealer has in inventory and would like to sell you.
We Work for our Clients and NOT the Car Dealers.
