Road to a Sale Step 9 - Trial Close

Trial Close
The trial close could be actually anywhere in the process, but is just a subtle question to find out if you are on the right vehicle. It could be something as subtle as

"Can you see this vehicle parked in your garage or driveway?"

Or could be as bold as, "If terms and figures are agreeable, will you buy this car today?"

I sometimes skip the trial close because too many things can change.

I always assume the customer is buying until they tell me they are not ready.

This may not come up until we are closing the deal, but I have sold more cars by assuming all customers are ready to buy today or they would not be there.
