Three minutes. The time it took Don Ploetner to find the 2007 Toyota Sequoia Limited. Zero minutes: the amount of time I spent negotiating the deal, inspecting the paint and doing an inspection. Twenty minutes. The total amount of time spent at the dealership signing paperwork and taking delivery of the car. $3500 – the amount of value added by Don (reduction of sales price, new tires, brakes and maintenance performed at his request).
You hire Don to make your car buying simple. The experience of employing Don made a transformed the typical game of car buying into a painless, simple and enjoyable experience. Knowing his experience from being the GM of a dealership – I knew he could get the best deal and ask the questions we didn’t even know to ask. It’s been two weeks and nearly 1200 miles of driving with our 2007 Toyota Sequoia Limited and the car is better than described. It literally looks showroom new.
Was it worth it? Absolutely. Would I recommend him? I already have and he has already found three cars for three friends in the past two weeks. Money well spent!

I am writing to tell you how very pleased both my wife and I are with the service you and I-Deal Acquisitions provided in negotiating the purchase of our new 2015 Subaru Forester. We are not particularly adept at the art of price negotiating ourselves, nor do we enjoy it. We placed what was for us the unpleasant part of buying a new car into your very capable hands. The deal and terms you negotiated far exceeded our expectations, considerably surpassing those available from other car buying sources. Engaging the services of I-Deal Acquisitions was the right choice and well worth the investment, not only on a monetary level, but also in time saved and anxiety eliminated.
Your personal knowledge of the new car manufacturer industry from the inside out, your extraordinary negotiating skills and expertise, and your white-glove-quality personal service are a winning combination. We highly recommend the services of I-Deal Acquisitions to anyone in need of a personal negotiator, whether in regard to the lease or purchase of a new car or other acquisitions.
Thank you again for a job well done.
I would like to take a few moments of your time to express our great satisfaction and appreciation for the work you and your team did with our recent acquisition process.
In my role as a senior executive in a multi-national firm, I am in travel mode most of the time, rarely having the luxury of more than 2 or 3 days in a row at a home. After over a year without a personal vehicle I decided I wanted something that fit my personality and after some looking on the web settled on the 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette – that was the easy part.
Finding the “right” car was the real challenge. Initial searches found candidates in California and Pennsylvania – but with my schedule I could not see an opportunity to invest the 2 or 3 days to travel to either location to check them out. A family member suggested I call I-Deal Acquisitions. Best advice ever!
Once I contacted your team you jumped into action first making a thorough vehicle history investigation then performing an extensive in-person inspection of the best candidate. I have to tell you; when I received the very detailed list of items to be corrected prior to the purchase, 80% of which were cosmetic items, I was so impressed I passed it around at a board meeting so my staff could see what a professional report looks like.
By this time I was hooked on the car, with good reason. It’s beautiful! If I had walked in to negotiate the purchase I know I would have paid at least 15% and maybe even 20% more than the price you achieved because there was no way I was going to leave without it. And as you know, the real savings was about twice your very reasonable fee.
Of course, the service isn’t complete until the customer receives the product, and the professional delivery service you contracted with on my behalf was simply top-notch. My dream car was delivered on time in perfect condition.
My wife and I really appreciate both your excellent service and the extreme courtesy through this process. We couldn’t have done this without you.
Next year – let’s do a boat!
With great appreciation,
Don Ploetner was extremely helpful with my recent purchase of a new Ford F-250 pickup truck. He saved me time and money due to his extensive experience in the auto industry. He negotiated a great bargain with the dealership which I know I couldn’t have done on my own. His service was exceptional and I would highly recommend him to my friends–or anyone for that matter–looking to make a purchase of a car or truck.
