Working a full-time job and running a business doesn’t leave much time to find a new car. This was the reality for Mallorie McBride, a young professional based in Kansas City, MO. Mallorie runs her own photography business, which means when she isn't in her office, she’s capturing people’s special moments through her camera lens. Mallorie’s non-stop hustle means she’s working an average of 60+ hours a week. With a schedule like that, she doesn’t have time to spend researching vehicles, negotiating deals and spending hours reviewing paperwork.
When the new year rolled around, Mallorie decided she was ready to upgrade from her first car. She’d been driving her trusty 2008 Ford Escape since high school, but with over 220k miles and some functional issues, it was time to part ways. Mallorie knew exactly what she wanted her next car to be: a small SUV with a black exterior, leather seats, Bluetooth and a sunroof. The only problem? Finding the time to locate and purchase her dream car.
A family member recommended Mallorie check out OneRequest Concierge, which can find Mallorie's perfect car without distracting her from her busy schedule. “The concept of someone doing everything for me was really, really appealing,” said Mallorie.
Mallorie’s Concierge helped her decide on a make and model that would check all of her boxes, while also providing her with great gas milage to get to and from her job and photo shoots. After combing inventory across the nation, Mallorie's concierge ultimately helped her snag a mint-condition 2016 Hyundai Tucson. Mallorie shared that she appreciated the communication and guidance throughout the shopping process. “I trusted the Concierge’s judgement.”
After negotiating the deal on her behalf, Mallorie’s Concierge arranged for an at-home vehicle delivery and shipment of her paperwork. She estimated that she spent less than 1.5-2 hours of her own time on the entire process. As the owner of her own business, every hour that Mallorie saves is worth money to her. OneRequest Concierge handled everything. According to Cox Automotive, car shoppers in 2020 spent an average of nearly 15 hours shopping for a car. This means Mallorie saved over 13 hours leaving more time for work, photography and fun.
Mallorie plans to use OneRequest Concierge for all of her future car purchases. “I had never done any of this before. After using OneRequest Concierge, I don’t think I’ll ever want to do this on my own. OneRequest has a customer for life.” OneRequest Concierge is here to make car shopping easy.
