One thing I absolutely hate is the whole Car Buying experience, (fast talking, numbers changing, promises, high pressure sales etc…) – sorry, I just threw up in my mouth. My time and sanity is better spent elsewhere. So this time when my wife wanted to buy her dream car that she has been working so hard for, I knew it would be a good idea to hire a professional. I came across Paul at myHopscotch while doing my research on the internet. After our first conversation, explaining our situation, I knew I hired the right person. I told Paul the exact car she wanted (which had to be ordered) and he went to work. Not to bore you with a long drawn out story, this came from their summary email finalizing the deal. • Researched the market, Blue Book values and the market conditions • Searched the area for comparable vehicles • Found four possibilities and talked to every dealer • After several conversations with each dealer, disqualified three out of four, due to either false advertising, deceptive business practices, or vehicle price/availability.• Narrowed the selection down to one dealership that was local to you and was able and willing to order the vehicle at the price agreed upon.• Researched Dealer’s reputations and found it to be outstanding. • Negotiated the price to $4337.00 below the dealerships invoice price which saved you $8,722 off of MSRP.• MyHopscotch arranged for the order but Mercedes was unable to build it with the features requested, MyHopscotch stayed with you till Mercedes could build you a 2019.• MyHopscotch negotiated the interest rate down from 2.34 to 1.34 which was the dealerships cost, saving you $2808.00 over the life of the lease.• Negotiated the dealership to include the aftermarket items at a discounted price and they included the window tint for free saving you $1000.00• Made several contacts to arrange for document signing and an outstanding new vehicle orientation at the time of delivery. Total dealer contacts: 27-Total savings through offering an alternative: $12,530.00-Total Client Hours Saved: 13
In summary, hiring Paul at myHopscotch was the best decision and car buying experience I have ever had. There is no doubt in my mind I would have paid at least $5k more if I would have done this on my own, not evening considering how much stress and time I would have spent. So if you are in the market for a new or used vehicle, Paul is your Car Buying Professional.

This program may work well out on the coasts or if you are purchasing a new car, but the program was not very good when one is purchasing a used car in the MidWest. I wound up spending more on their service fee than what they saved me, and they made the process actually more complicated, as they were a middle man and were unfamiliar with the area, car dealers, and options. There was no help with finding a lender, and I felt like I was forgotten about.
UPDATE- They also do not stand by their "refund for any reason" statement within the service agreement. 1 Star

Decent way to take a little money off your purchase and a lot of stress out of the process.

I was extremely satisfied with the work of Hopscotch. The entire staff was knowledge and able to accomplish what they stated. My Honda was negotiated to a deep discount and I'm very happy with its performance.

Hopscotch made my car-buying experience the easiest it has ever been. I will definitely use them again.
Review by Maetê Rangs2 years ago
I will never buy a car on my own again. They were personable, helpful, and did not waste my time. They pulled off what I thought was impossible--and then some. I saved over $5K on my deal, not to mention my precious time and patience.

It was a waste of my money. The dealership I bought my car from wouldn't even deal with a third party.
Review by Winfried2 years ago
Paul listened to what I wanted and came up with some great ideas that I didn't think about He set up visits with dealerships negotiated a price from my old, and more than exceeded my expectations on the price for a new car At no point did I have to do any negotiating because Paul did it all for me I simply handed the pink slip and keys over to the dealership and drove my car away I would highly recommend My Hopscotch to anyone that hates the car buying experience and wants to feel like they got a good deal

Money well spent. Saves you the hassle of all the negotiating back and forth with the car dealership. Literally just walked in, signed the papers and was handed the keys to my car. The service negotiated everything including the extended warranty, service contract and of course ultimately the the cost of the vehicle. Over the years, I have negotiated the purchase of new cars and found the MyHopscotch service to be the smoothest and easiest car purchasing experience I've had to date. The amount that I paid for my new car was an extremely good deal and would have taken me hours of internet research and hours at the dealership to negotiate the same price.

I had a great experience here. Not only was it super easy for me to have MyHopscotch find my Toyota 4Runner, the negotiation of the sale and trade in saved me serious money. In buying this SUV, I figured that in 10 months of payments I will have made a return on my investment.
My wife will be due to get a new car in the next 12 months and I really can't wait to pay MyHopscotch again to save money and make the whole process as simple as it should be.

So we started looking at mid-size cars and MyHopscotch stayed and helped us through that process. We changed our minds and started looking at Mid-size SUVs. They gave recommendation on what we could afford.
We settled on two manufacturers, a primary and secondary and they went to work on the primary.
Here's what is important, for what the dealer wanted for a lease MyHopscotch got them to take the same deal for a sale.
When we went to pick up our new MkC, there was no waiting, trying to sell additional stuff, or time consuming issues that typically happen at this process. Just signed the papers, showed our driver license, and gave them the keys to our trade-in (that was a leased Pilot) and drove away with our new car.
I figure they saved us 8-9 thousand dollars on our transaction. Could I have done that? I don't think so. It was money well spent and will do it again when I go and either buy or lease another car.

Promises made and promises kept. Have recommended them several times and will use again when needed!
Review by AVouz2 years ago
Paid for a service that I believe I could have done myself. On top of that, the automobile transport company that was recommended charged me almost double of what I later found elsewhere for the same service.
However, they did eventually help me find a car which I did purchase.

I was hesitant at first to sign up for this service. With all of the online opportunities for car purchasing out there, it seemed silly to pay someone else to find my car for me. But after several months and countless wasted hours of looking at various car sales websites, poring over confusing lists of offerings and trying to weigh one deal for another, I finally decided to try MyHopscotch. And from the moment Taylor called me (five minutes after I signed up), I wasn't sorry. Buying a car is a daunting endeavor, and by asking helpful questions and sharing expertise, the folks at MyHopscotch were able to make it painless. I went in "knowing" that I wanted a used Prius, but when I heard about the new Hyundai Ioniq I asked for more information about it. This is where the MyHopscotch expertise truly came in handy. Since it's a brand-new car, there is not much information about the Ioniq, and shortly after considering it I began to get skeptical. But the folks at MyHopscotch are experts, and they were able to provide me with their research and knowledge, plus, ultimately, an objective perspective that helped me understand that the Ioniq was the better car for me and my situation. They set up the test drive, and then set up the purchase, with Taylor calling to give me instructions on how to handle the dealers all the while. Now I have a new car that I love, but perhaps more importantly, I was able to walk away not feeling that I'd been swindled. Thanks MyHopscotch! I will definitely be recommending this service to others. It not only saved time and money but also gave me great peace of mind.

Great service. Small fee saved me the time and I am sure money on my purchase. We actually were so happy we used them a second time.
Review by Gilbee McTarsney2 years ago
Very useful service! Bypassed all the hassle of negotiating with car dealers and got a great deal. MyHopscotch found exactly the kind of car I was looking for, negotiated the price, and all I had to was walk in, sign the papers, and drive home. Would definitely recommend!
Review by Ischiel Derrow2 years ago
Thanks again for all your help in putting me in my new 4 Runner. It is my dream vehicle! I love it! My search for a new 4 Runner began back in November. My current lease on a 2015 Toyota Rav 4 was coming to an end on March 21 and I knew that I wanted to upgrade to the new 4 Runner. I let my dealer know what my plan was and to start watching for a low lease deal on a 4 Runner. I stopped in for car washes and to touch base every couple of weeks but no luck on a great deal. On Dec 30th I stopped in hoping they would want to do a great year end deal. The best they would do was $450/month lease with $3,000 down for 36 months. I was getting pretty frustrated and was starting to look at other vehicles that were offering lower lease rates. I then saw an Ad for My Hopscotch through my wife’s employer. After just a couple of E-mails and phone calls with Amanda I was convinced I had nothing to lose by giving My Hopscotch a try. Needless to say the rest is history! In less than a week with a few phone calls and communication on their Dashboard, Paul had an appointment for me to pick up my new 4 Runner at the same dealership, and the best part…..At the price they told me was never going to happen. I am not sure how Paul did it but at this point, I was just happy to be in my new 4 Runner. Wow! Thanks Again!!
