Triad based used car dealership inducted to Hall Of Fame

Frank Myers Auto achieves hall of fame status

Frank Myers Auto Maxx, LLC  has been named to the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame for being recognized as one of America’s fastest growing companies for 5 consecutive years. The Winston-Salem, North Carolina-based used car dealership received the honor at the 37th Annual Inc. 5000, an exclusive ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies, announced this week.

Annually, Inc. magazine ranks the most prestigious and privately owned companies in the nation. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small businesses. Companies such as Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.

“It’s an honor that we were named to the Inc. 5000 Hall of Fame,” said Tracy Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx. “I’m so very fortunate that my family has been able to serve the Triad in some capacity for over 90 years and that I’ve been able to play a small role in that. I truly believe our dealership is the BEST place to buy a nicer, newer vehicle because we focus on our customers needs and wants first instead of their pocketbook.”

Companies on the 2018 Inc. 5000 list have showcased staggering growth, with a three-year average of 538.2%, and a median rate of 171.8%. Inc. 5000 companies have accounted for 664,095 jobs over the past three years.

“If your company is on the Inc. 5000, it is unparalleled recognition of years of hard work and sacrifice,” Inc. Magazine Editor-in-Chief James Ledbetter said. “The lines of business may come and go, or come and stay. What doesn’t change is the way entrepreneurs create and accelerate the forces that shape our lives.”

The Inc. 5000 list, which began in 1982, has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success. The 2018 list is Inc. Magazine’s 37th annual ranking.

 

Winter Weather Possibly Coming To Triad; Driving Tips Offered

Winston-Salem Winter Weather Driving TIps

Driving Tips For Winter Weather

Experts are predicting nasty winter weather is quickly approaching the Piedmont Triad area of NC. The forecast for this weekend doesn’t look promising. In fact, some weather people are calling for as much as a foot of snow being dumped sometime in the Winston-Salem, High Point and Kernersville area on Sunday. If that happens, the only ones who will benefit are grocery stores, towing companies and body shops.

Yes, I said body shops. It’s no secret that most people in the South aren’t very good at driving in the snow. In their defense, it’s not their fault. They simply don’t have the same experience as their Northern friends. That’s why it’s important to share a few tips on driving safely in winter weather.

Tips For Driving On Snow & Ice

1) Make sure you can see out of your windshield. This sounds like common sense but like Will Rogers said: “Common sense ain’t so common.” Cleaning the snow and/or ice off of your entire car, including the headlights, is the 1st step but there are others such as making sure you have good windshield wipers  and have anti-icing fluid in your windshield washer system.

2) Watch out for “black ice”. Yeah, it’s tough to see it but it’s deadly so driver beware. It’s also called “glare ice” and the name does it justice. Sometimes it looks nearly transparent, other times it simply looks like a puddle of water and sometimes it can’t be seen at all. Snow is much easier to deal with than this.

3) Make sure your tires are properly inflated. Remember your parents or grandparents checking their tire pressure every time they bought gas for their car? Do YOU do that? Didn’t think so. While you should check your tire pressure often, it’s a “must do” when snow and ice are covering the ground.

4) Don’t use cruise control. Why? Because it’s dangerous to do so when driving on any slippery surface.

5) Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Better yet, do everything slower when you’re driving on snow and ice covered roads.

6) Make sure you have gas in your car. At least half a tank is recommended.

7) Make sure you have your cell phone. You also need to have your cell phone car charger with you.

8) Make sure your car battery is fully charged. Frank Myers Auto Repair can help you do this for no charge. Simply give them a call at (336) 831-0656 or visit their website at http://www.FrankMyersAutoRepair.com to schedule a time to drop by.

9) Carry some basic supplies with you. Things like an ice scraper, a shovel, a bag of sand, blankets, bottled water and non-perishable snacks could go a long way if you are ever stuck in your car during winter weather.

10) Stay at home. The basic rule of thumb during bad winter weather especially in the South, is STAY HOME.

Of course, the weather pros are wrong more times than they are right so this information may be for naught. If so, keep it handy because the bad winter weather usually sneaks up on you when you least expect it. Until then, you better get to the grocery store with the rest of the Triad peeps. The milk and bread will be gone soon.

3 Things Every First Time Car Buyer Should Do

First Time Car Buyers

If you are new to the car buying scene you may have experienced some common feelings: Exhaustion, anxiety and confusion. Sound like you? It doesn’t have to be like this! With the help of a trusted automotive professional and a little research on your part, you can find the perfect vehicle for you and your needs without experiencing any of these seemingly terrible feelings! It can actually be quite an enjoyable experience for those who love to shop or are anxious to get behind the wheel of their very own vehicle. We’ve come up with a short list of the MUST do’s when considering buying your very first vehicle.

Research

Think you know what kind of car you’re looking for? Take the time to research features and models that are important to you. Doing a little research before stepping foot on the lot will help you find the best deals and know when to walk away. It can also empower you to make decisions and help calm your nerves. When you understand more about what you’re buying you will know exactly where you money is going and you may also lift the rose colored glasses on some features or add ons that can be costly. If you aren’t a big music lover, paying for that sound system really isn’t worth the extra speaker, maybe you don’t need the 8-way power adjustable seat but you would like leather detailing. Learn the value and assess what’s important to you before you’re overwhelmed by choice and price tags.

Build a Budget

When you are really excited about that big purchase it can get easy to get lost in all the features, add ons and new model upgrades thrown your way. To keep yourself from getting distracted by all the bells and whistles of a new vehicle, make a budget prior to heading to the dealership. If you have any shopping companions, tell them your budget and get them to help you stick with it! It’s easy to say yes to the added features when you see their seemingly small price next to the larger, overall price of your vehicle but these things add up quickly. Don’t let a $100 or $200 there throw off your finances. If you’ve done your research you know what kind of vehicle and the features that you can afford. Stick to it!

Shop Around

Now that you know what you want and you know how much you have to spend, you’re ready to shop! Take the time to cruise a couple different dealerships not just for pricing but for salespeople. Great sales staff will make a difference for you and your vehicle. If you walk on a lot and someone is pushing you into a vehicle you don’t really want, they might not have your best interest at heart. Shopping around will also allow you to find a trustworthy individual to help you find a payment plan that will work for you. Don’t worry, there are not sneaky sales people all over the place, trust your instincts and come armed with your knowledge of how much things cost, and how much you can spend.

If you are looking for your very first vehicle, it can be easy to become overwhelmed. Using some of these points you can make the process a little smoother and even enjoy your experience!
