Are you a dealership or a private seller?

Yes, we are a licensed used car dealership in the State of Ohio that stocks nearly 200 late model cars, trucks, vans, and SUV’s. We have a diverse inventory that consists of brands such as, but not limited to, Audi, Bentley, Buick, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Honda, Infiniti, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln, Maserati, Nissan, and Toyota. We do not discriminate when it comes to the vehicles we sell and that is why we sell cars that range from $1,000 up to $100,000.

Do I need to call before I come?

Yes. Due to internet and local sale activity, we ask you to call before you stop in to make sure the vehicle you’re coming to see is still available. Please understand that e-mail conversation does not qualify as contacting us before you come. You must call before you are on your way.

Where do you find your vehicles?

Most of our vehicles are purchased off lease at dealer auctions from nationally recognized leasing companies such as Ford Motor Credit, Mercedes Financial, Infiniti Financial, etc. What are off lease vehicles? Imagine going to a Ford dealership today and leasing a new Ford Explorer for 2 years. When your lease is complete, you return your vehicle which is typically owned by a leasing company. The leasing company will send your vehicle to a dealer auction where new and used car dealerships are able to purchase your vehicle and resell it at their dealership.

Does this vehicle have a clean title?

Yes, all of our vehicles have clean titles and no liens.

Are the miles actual?

Yes, the miles are actual.

Are the pictures of the actual vehicle?

Yes, the pictures are of the actual vehicle.

Why are your prices so low?

Our competitors have high rent flashy retail space, expensive advertising, and commission sales people. By eliminating these three obstacles, and buying vehicles through dealer auctions, we are able to pass huge savings onto you, the customer.

What is your best price? Are your prices negotiable?

We do extensive research throughout the United States on all auto advertising websites to find comparable vehicles being sold to assure we have the best price, or one of the best prices, on the market. Having such low prices leaves very little room for negotiation.

What is your best price if I pay cash?

Paying cash will not give you a discount. Whether you pay by cash, check, or wire, it’s all the same in the end. It all will be deposited in the company account.

How do you repair scratches and dents?

When scratches and dents aren’t able to be fixed through our detailing, we work with a dent removal company and a certified body shop to ensure that the vehicle has been repaired with professional quality.

Do any of your vehicles have flood damage?

No, we do not purchase flood-damaged vehicles. Those vehicles are announced to us at the time of purchase and we choose not to buy them.

Can you finance me if I live out of state?

Our main lender is a prime lender, meaning they finance applicants with a minimum credit score of 670, a good credit history, and minimal debt. They offer rates as low as 1.99%. They do not finance residents in the following states: California, Florida, New Jersey, New York, Texas, West Virginia.

When do I pay sales tax on the vehicle I am purchasing?

If you are an Ohio resident, we will collect your sales tax. The percentage will vary based on the county in which you reside. If you are an out-of-state resident, the State of Ohio only collects taxes for certain states.

Arizona 6.6%
California 7.25%
Florida 6%
Indiana 7%
Massachusetts 6.25%
Michigan 6%
South Carolina 5% (max $300)
All other out-of-state residents will pay taxes when registering their new vehicle in their home state.

How will I receive my title?

Once you purchase your vehicle, we will transfer the title into your name. Once we receive the transferred title, we will mail it to you. You will typically receive your title within a 2-3 week period. If you are financing, each lender has a different process but will ensure that you get the proper documentation to register your new vehicle. If you are an out-of-state resident, this title will be transferred to a state title for the state in which you reside when you go to register your new vehicle.

How do I drive away without having registered my new vehicle?

We will issue you a 30-day temporary plate. This is good to drive on until you receive your title. Then you will be able to register your vehicle. When you register, you can choose to purchase new plates or transfer your old plates to your new vehicle.

If we fly into the Cleveland Airport, can someone pick us up?

Unfortunately, we do not have a shuttle service from the airport. Our customers usually use one of the many cab services available outside of baggage claim.

Can you hold/reserve a vehicle for me?

You have the ability to reserve a vehicle for 7 days with a $520 deposit using your credit card. The $500 deposit is refundable if you arrive and the vehicle does not meet your expectations. The deposit is non-refundable if you choose not to purchase the vehicle and never made an attempt to come see/test drive it. The extra $20 is the processing charge for the credit card transaction and is non-refundable.
