Truliant's Auto Buying Service: Fast, Easy and Convenient

Contributed by: Heath Combs

Tight on time or hate negotiating? Buy your next vehicle the hassle-free way. Use Truliant’s Credit Union Auto Buying Service, or CUABS®.

You don’t have to be a Truliant member to use the service or visit CUABS retail center. For 25 years, CUABS has been delivering low-priced, new and pre-owned vehicles to buyers across the Eastern United States. There are several reasons to consider using CUABS for your next vehicle purchase.

1. What is an auto buying service? CUABS is part dealership, part concierge service. Their goal is to make purchasing your next vehicle hassle- and haggle-free. The auto buying service is staffed by CUABS Auto Advisors who utilize all of their abilities, connections and persistence to track down your next vehicle and get you the best deal.

2. Why use this type of service? It’s fast and accommodates your schedule. Let your CUABS Auto Advisor know what kind of car you want and they’ll help guide you from start to fi­nish. Your personal advisor will send you several possibilities, then they’ll locate the vehicle and negotiate your price (more on that later), usually within 24-to-48 hours.

3. How do I contact an Auto Advisor? Visit CUABS online or by phone. Fill out a contact form or live chat with advisors at; email [email protected]; or speak with a personal Auto Advisor directly at 800.282.2755.

4. How do they track down autos? CUABS can locate the vehicle that best suits your needs, either in its pre-owned inventory or through a customized vehicle search from its vast dealer network.

5. Or, kick the tires at our retail center. If you’re travelling on University Parkway, it’s about midway between North Point Boulevard and Shattalon Drive. CUABS typically keeps an inventory of about 200 vehicles on the lot. You can take out the cars you’re interested in for a test drive alone. Anyone shopping for a vehicle can visit CUABS lot and view its inventory of pre-owned autos.

6. You can save. Not everyone is a born negotiator. While you know you should not pay sticker price, you might not be quite sure where to go from there. Leave that to our Auto Advisors. Pay cash or fi­nance your vehicle through Truliant.1 If you’re not a Truliant member and you live in the Triad area, you can become a member and start enjoying credit union benefi­ts today!2

7. It’s easy and they deliver. Not only will they ­find your next vehicle, negotiate the price, inspect the vehicle, review the contract and handle your trade. CUABS will deliver your next vehicle to your home or offi­ce. And you’ve got three days to return your vehicle if you’re not satis­ed with your purchase.

Utilize CUABS auto experts, its vast inventory and network to buy your next auto. Truliant’s Credit Union Auto Buying Service has sold over 40,000 vehicles. It’s goal is to provide the best price in a stress-free, low-pressure sales environment.
