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.

Insurance - Personal Umbrella Coverage, 609-818-9534

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.
