New Virtual Car Buying Experience

Unveiling A New Car Buying Experience from Partners

This spring, we were excited to bring you our Partners Car Sale, in both California and Florida. Unfortunately, as a result of COVID-19 we were forced to postpone the car sales for now, but since we know that your need to upgrade or your need to get a vehicle that fits all the characters in your family didn’t change, we wanted to make sure we were still able to offer you fast, convenient, and safe resources to help. From refreshing our auto buying page on our website, to making it easier to apply for a loan, to bringing you a more interactive tool to complete your search, car buying at Partners will be an experience unlike any other.

Chris Olinick, VP of Branches in Orlando, has been working with Auto Advisors, long time partners of the credit union, to bring a web functionality developed specifically for credit unions to our Members based in Florida. “With Auto Advisors assistance, it’s a fantastic way for our Members to shop for a vehicle safely and conveniently from the comfort of their own homes,” Chris says. “It’s also a great tool for our branch and call center to use, when assisting our Members with the car buying process at the branch or over the phone.”

With this new virtual tool, you can browse both new and used vehicles. You can also filter through make, model, year, and even price – something that we know tends to guide the direction in which we will go more often than not. An extra feature that I think you’ll enjoy, is having a Partners Loan Payment calculator easily accessible on the same page of each vehicle you might be pricing out, making it easier to see and to stick to your monthly budgeted car payment amount.

So, although we couldn’t physically bring the car buying experience to you via our car sales, we hope this car buying experience offers you the variety, flexibility and confidence in knowing that you are working with an organization you know and trust, even if it is using an electronic highway.

We are also working on offering this car buying experience in partnership with Autoland for Members in California, stay tuned for more but for now, happy shopping!
