FAQs

Buy It Now Format FAQ


  • Do you offer financing?
  • No, but we have relationships with all the best local banks and would be happy to refer you to a great lender that can work with you.
  • Do I have to be a dealer to buy from you?
  • No, we sell to the public as well.
  • What does “One Price” mean?
  • This means we have already done the painstaking work of finding you the best deal. We use software that shows us the prices of every similar vehicle in our area, and we price ours to be in the top 10% every time. This ensures that you’ve not only got a great deal, but we also benefit by moving our inventory in days, not weeks. This means that there is no price haggling required or accepted. The price listed is the price required to buy the vehicle.
  • Do you allow test drives?
  • Absolutely.
  • Can my mechanic check the car out?
  • Not only do we welcome you to have a third party check the vehicle out, but we also recommend it.
  • What other fees are charged aside from the price of the vehicle?
  • If you live in Ohio and select other states you are required to pay sales tax. This ranges from 5%-8.5%. You are also required to pay $20 for the title and a documentary charge of $200 or 10% of the selling price. Whichever is less. We sell 45-day tags for $20 if you need one as well. That’s it. No other bogus fees that many dealers charge. If you would ever like a total, just give us a call at 740-935-1180.
