Purchased my ram 2500 from them in November. Nick P. Was my salesman and he and the financing dept where very helpful and communicative. I had the vehicle shipped all the way to New Jersey with no problems at all. I highly recommend buying from them. Once you see truck you like do a fast deposit so they can hold it for you. Thank you

Went in December 2020 to find a van. Sales person Mark helped us find the perfect one but it still needed work before we could get it. It took them a while to get it ready but they fixed every problem so when I was able to pick it up it was completely safe and clean for me and my family. Will definitely go back for another vehicle.
