Tropical Financial CU Launches Auto Buying Service
To help its more than 50,000 members with the auto buying process, Tropical Financial Credit Union has partnered with AutoNation Direct.
A personal auto consultant will help members with a concierge experience, according to the $555 million Tropical Financial in Pembroke Pines, Fla.
The Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.-based AutoDirect Nation assists shoppers through the entire buying process, including providing pricing on new and pre-owned vehicles, completing all documents in advance, and preparing the vehicle for delivery prior to the member arriving at the dealership.
The service also gives credit unions an avenue to fulfill on their direct auto loans without their members following the traditional finance process in the dealership, Tropical Financial said.
“We are proud to bring this service to our members, which eliminates the hassle of car shopping and gets them a great deal. It’s another example of how we, as a not-for-profit cooperative, are looking out for the financial well-being of our members,” said Richard Helber, president/CEO of Tropical Financial.
