This Car Dealer Got Revenge With a Low-Ball Offer on a Diamond

on

I received a written offer from a used-car salesman looking to buy a diamond and bridal/wedding set: he wanted an additional 15 percent off my sales quote; a larger diamond with a higher color, clarity and cut grade; lifetime discounts on any and all future repairs or purchases; and additional discounts. And, if I agreed to his terms (and signed on his dotted line), he would give me 50 percent payment! Wowza! Car sales, huh.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
