Car Buying Service, 301-657-1920
D.C. Bar members can purchase domestic vehicles at $100 over dealer invoice and foreign vehicles at prenegotiated prices through United Buying Service, Inc. or UBS. UBS works with nearly 100 Washington area dealerships to secure special prenegotiated prices on virtually every make and model of car and truck on the market. UBS prices already include the invoiced fee of freight, and UBS customers are exempt from paying additional dealer processing fees. Manufacturer rebates and incentives, when available, are deducted from the UBS price to make prices even lower. To use the car buying service, members should call UBS, identify themselves as D.C. Bar members, and request a free purchase certificate for a specific vehicle (Ford, Honda, Toyota, etc.). UBS will mail the purchase certificate, which will include information on the make of car desired, the closest dealership, and the name of the UBS representative at the dealership. Once the certificate is received, make an appointment with the recommended UBS representative at the dealership and select the model of car, along with the options desired. Final pricing is determined by consulting the UBS price book at the dealership. For more information about UBS, call 301-657-1920 or visit www.ubs4cars.com.

The D.C. Bar has partnered with the Leeward Group for a Group Personal Umbrella product. This policy offers broad coverage for additional asset protection over existing homeowners and/or auto policies. As an example of the broad coverage provided, the Bar’s umbrella product includes $1M of Excess Uninsured/Underinsured Motorists protection—where most personal umbrella policies exclude UM/UIM due to the increasing exposure presented by Uninsured and/or Underinsured drivers. This is a standalone personal umbrella policy, meaning that one does not have to change their underlying home or auto insurance company—or even their underlying agent. The Bar has also negotiated discounted group rates, including no surcharges for youthful drivers or multiple residences. Coverage is backed by an “A” rated, billion–dollar insurance company. This program is administered by the Leeward Group, a nationally licensed risk management firm that services numerous group programs for Bar Associations. Members may contact Bill Cleave with any questions at 609-818-9534 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Members can also visit www.dcbarxs.com for further information or to get a quote via the short 11-question application.
