I was able to negotiate away the repair costs, security fee, and they adjusted the selling price by $300 to bring the doc fee down to the average.

I am very happy with the purchase and give all the credit to the fantastic information that you’ve made available.

Jerry was FANTASTIC and delivered better than was hoped for! I've already recommended him to someone and will look for more opportunities to tell people in the market about CarEdge's Concierge service!!!

Firstly, I would like to commend your patience, politeness, prompt responses, knowledge and expertise. They took the time to listen to my needs and provided me with valuable guidance in selecting the perfect vehicle. Mario especially was accommodating throughout the entire process, and guess we have now become buddies.
