Everything begins with a conversation

We ask questions. We give answers. Feel free to do the same. No pressure.

We listen

Colors & Options


What’s available

Lease / Finance

We’re amazing listeners.

We want to understand exactly what you’re looking for in a vehicle and every reason why.

Models, options and colors, oh my

When it comes to cars, there are more types and features than you can imagine. We’ll help uncover the ones that mean the most to you.

Compare and contrast your favorite cars

Let’s take a closer look at the cars on your list. We’ll share their benefits and discuss pricing options to help you make an educated decision.

Special order or hard to find?

We’re not bound to shopping at just one dealership. If there’s a specific car you have in mind, we determine where it exists, or if it needs to be special ordered.

To lease or not to lease

We’ve been around for 20 years and are highly experienced in leasing and financing. We’ll make sure you understand both. Then we’ll negotiate a great deal whatever you choose.

We do the legwork

Using our conversations as a road map, we’ll check all California (and nearby) inventory to find what you are looking for.

We check available and incoming cars

We can search dealer inventory and incoming cars throughout California to find your perfect car. Or we can special order your car with the exact options you want.

We negotiate for more than price

We save you more than just a discount off MSRP. We make sure you get a great deal on lease and finance rates, trade-in value and any additional products that make sense.

We’ll provide multiple options to review

We’ll show you cars that meet your specifications and different lease and financing options so you can make an informed decision on what works best for you.

We secure your deal. You sign and drive away happy.

After checking dealerships and online sources to get you a great deal, we’ll guide you through the fine print. We want you to be happy even after the new car smell wears off.

Save time. Save money.

Sit back. We know how car deals work and how to make them work for you. We leverage rates, rebates, and hidden incentives get a great deal on your new car.

Walking through the paperwork.

We help your understand the details of your lease or purchase so you can be confident in your deal.

The beginning of a beautiful friendship.

After we introduce you to your new car’s amazing features, our door is always open to discuss issues, warranties and lease ending.

How it Works FAQs

  • What’s the catch?
    There is no catch. We’re a customer service first company and that’s what you’re paying for. We work hard to find the right car for you, saving you hours of online research, dealership visits and time at the negotiating table. You won’t ever have to take a single step inside a dealership again.
  • How long is the entire process?
    For most clients it’s about 4 days. We work on your schedule and get you the new car you want in as little as a day. We can also help you special order your precise build in 2-3 months.
  • How do other car services compare?
    Services like TrueCar and Costco are actually paid lead generation platforms for dealerships. They offer clients a pre-negotiated price off MSRP, but you will need to go to a dealership to negotiate the remainder of the transaction. Cartelligent can get you the same pricing or lower, plus we negotiate the entirety of the deal including lease or finance rates. Signing the paperwork at a Cartelligent office typically takes less than 15 minutes, compared to four plus hours at most dealerships.
  • Can I buy outside of California?
    No. At this time, we’re only able to work with clients who plan to register their new car in California.

It’s free to ask questions and free to get answers.
