1.) What does "No Haggle, No Hassle" Pricing mean?
In 2003, Bourne's Auto Center, decided to go to a fix pricing model. The internet plays such as strong role in consumer's research and pricing we determined that the best way to maximize sales was to market our best price on the internet. This means, that the price is the price. We do not negotiate from the price listed on our website. This also allows us to process the transaction with our customer much quicker than most dealers. The back and forth negotiation process is quite time consuming. We always say, just because you negotiated, doesn't mean you got a good deal.
2.) Where do you obtain your vehicles from?
Our vehicles are hand selected through a wide variety of sources. A portion of our vehicles are purchased from lease companies such as Mercedes Benz Financial, Nissan Infiniti Lease Trust, Honda Finance, GMAC, Ally Financial and more! As one of the largest purchasers of used vehicles in the Northeast with unlimited purchasing ability, many new car dealers use Bourne's Auto Center to source their non-brand trade in vehicles. This is where we are able to source many of our one owner dealer maintained vehicles. Also, we may find vehicles that are bank repossessions, direct purchase from individuals, or off rental or corporate fleet.
3.) What other fees can I expect in additional to the "No Haggle Price"?
The other fees include taxes, title and registration and documentation charges. Massachusetts collects 6.25% of the sales price of the vehicle from all customers. The cost to title a vehicle is $75, new plates $50 and to transfer plates is $25. There is a $5 Title Transfer service charge. If you live out of state, we will submit the tax documents to the Department of Revenue and provide you with proof of taxes paid. You will responisble for any additional taxes (over the 6.25%) in the state you reside. If your vehicle is registered in Massachusetts, you will need to have a state inspection done within 7 days of your purchase, this is not included or provided by Bourne's Auto Center. The cost of the state inspection is $29.
