Winston Salem Used Car Dealer Nominated For Top NC Business Award

The owner of a Winston Salem used car dealership has been nominated for the annual Business North Carolina magazine Small Business of the Year award. Frank Myers Auto Maxx was nominated by BB&T for the contribution they make to North Carolina’s economy.

Myers summarized the experience after hearing about his nomination. “This is unbelieveable! What a year it is turning out to be. In May, my book became a #1 best-seller on Amazon.com, in June the dealership was recognized as one of the top 25 used car dealerships in the Nation and now I found out about this. I am honored to be one of the nominees and I feel like I’m on top of the world. The nomination was one more validation that what my dad always said was right…surround yourself with good people and they’ll push you to the top. I am fortunate to have the best team in United States, if not the world. They continuously make me look more talented than I am (laugh).”

Now in its 17th year, the Small Business of the Year award is recognized as the most prestigious business award in the state. All winners are invited to the awards ceremony which will be held in December.

Big Vehicle Bubble Bursts At Frank Myers Auto Maxx!

Rising Gas Prices Force Local Car Dealer To Purge Full-Size Cars, SUVs, Trucks And Minivans From Inventory And Overpay For Smaller Trade-Ins

UPSIDE DOWN? CREDIT CHALLENGED? STUCK IN A LEASE? NO DOWN PAYMENT?
YOUR PROBLEM SOLVED!

Good news for people who want a full size car, an SUV, a minivan or a truck. Panicking consumers are at it again. The recent bump in local gas prices has caused a knee-jerk reaction and put the squeeze on big vehicle values. Some larger vehicles are worth half what they were just two months ago (according to the auction). For those consumers who don’t blindly follow the herd and unconsciously react to the natural pendulum swing of society, now may very well be the most incredible time to find, qualify for and own the full-size car, truck, minivan or SUV you’ve been dreaming of.

How The Big Vehicle Bubble Benefits You

Imagine how this Big Vehicle Bubble could help you solve your transportation problems and improve your life and lifestyle…

  • Your current smaller vehicle could be worth as much as $5,000 more than it was last month, allowing you to pay off your loan or lease early – what would you do with that extra cash?
  • You could significantly lower (or even get rid of) the down payment required – this means you can finally afford that vehicle you’ve been eyeing.
  • You could be approved now, even if you were rejected before – stop letting credit prevent you from living the life you want NOW!
  • You could buy a nicer, newer car for as little as half the recent value – you can finally afford to drive that killer car, truck or SUV you’ve been wanting but could just never afford.

When The Accountants Call The Shots You Save Big

Tracy Myers, owner of Frank Myers Auto Maxx in Winston Salem explains, “We’re at the mercy of the vehicle pricing authorities at NADA and Blue Book. The demand for large vehicles has been reduced, so values have been reduced too. Now I’m stuck with more than 100 vehicles that have lost value and I need to sell them now.

“My accountant has made me promise to replace these bigger cars with smaller cars. My hands are tied. But the good news is that 213 people are going to get the deal of the century!” Myers said.

Experts expect this value correction to last only for a short time, perhaps less than a month. Remember what happened last time gas prices went up? That’s right…they came down again. Of course, nobody knows what will happen this time, only time will tell, but there’s always a chance that gas prices go back down or don’t climb very high at all. Think of how smart you’ll seem to all your friends and family…

And even if gas prices do get high and stay high for a while, the savings you’ll earn from buying right now while values are low will more than offset the extra fuel cost. It’s a no brainer! Myers reminds us, “Even if gas prices go to $5 per gallon, it’s still cheaper than that gourmet coffee that everyone loves to drink.”

Banks Are Back In Business

One thing is for sure. Banks aren’t affected by gas prices. They’re lending again! Myers says, “The banks and finance companies have come back to life. They’ve been banging down my door lately looking to lend to people like you.” Myers added, “Credit challenged customers are also in high demand for the specialty banks and lending institutions I have solid relationships with.”

These specialty financial institutions are part of the network Myers relies on to help credit challenged customers through his “EVERYBODY RIDES” program.

The process is a proven way to get buyers who have been turned down by other places or have had issues with getting loans in the past get approved now. “The process boils down to relationships,” Myers explained.

Myers and his in-house team of Credit Miracle Workers shop, negotiate and process loans using their special network of banks and finance companies that specialize in approving people who have had credit issues and haven’t been able to get an auto loan.

Who Else Wants To Pay Less For Gas?

The reality is that gas prices will eventually come back down to normal levels. They did last year and they will again this year. That will make this unbelievable opportunity to get these big vehicles a thing of the past. Just like the high gas prices, this offer will disappear. But if you take action right now you’ll have gotten a killer full size car, truck, van or SUV for a steal according to Myers.

“As long as your not looking to buy a hybrid vehicle you’re going get the deal of a lifetime,” raved Myers. “The reality is even the newer model bigger vehicles are more fuel efficient than many older cars most Winston Salem residents are driving.”

How The Banks’ Decisions Work In Your Favor

Frank Myers Auto Maxx has more than 100 vehicles that have been affected by the bubble bursting and have lost considerable value. These vehicles will be sold at unprecedented prices.

“I couldn’t sell them for a lot even if I wanted to,” says Myers. “They won’t appraise and the banks won’t lend as much on them as they would just last month.”

Myers is not sure how long this amazing opportunity will be available but says the people who act the fastest will get the very best deals. Plus right now you can get more for your small vehicle than any other time — as much as $5,000 more than it was worth just last month. And you could get a nicer, newer car at some of the biggest values ever offered at Frank Myers Auto Maxx.

“If you’ve been thinking about it, now’s the time to upgrade your ride,” says Myers.

12 Steps To Becoming A Super-Power Car Buyer; Part 3

Step #3 (of 11 Steps To Becoming A Super-Power Car Buyer): Discover The Four Pros Of Choosing A New Vehicle

Some people will never buy used. Even if you gave them a two year old Lexus they wouldn’t drive it. They want to be the first to sit in the car and smell the leather. These people will only ever choose new.

Here are some reasons to consider a new car purchase:

Less Maintenance: A new car requires less maintenance. Many of the newer cars don’t need a lick of service for the first several thousand miles. After that the maintenance is minor. A first oil change, quick inspection and that’s it.

A rare few new car dealers cover this type of routine maintenance as part of the deal. If the dealer doesn’t cover it the maintenance is about the same price as it would be on a used vehicle.

The Warranty: All new cars are covered by the manufacturer’s warranty for the first 3 to 4 years of a cars life. This means if anything goes wrong with the car, the repair costs are covered…

Unless the issue is in a non-warranted item. Non-warranted items include items like clutches, breaks and tires. Anything that the manufacture deems a “wearable” item – an item that wears out as a result of driving the vehicle – which is more than you may think.

All new cars also come with a power train warranty that extends past the manufacturer’s warranty.

These warranties can be as much as 10 years, 100,000 miles. Some warranties even offer a tire & wheel road hazard coverage for a short period of time after purchase.

Peace of Mind: Should problems occur with your new car, you have legal recourse through state lemon laws. Every state has a lemon law in effect.

By proving that your new car is a lemon, you could receive a replacement vehicle or get your money back.

Lemon laws apply only to new cars. You also can find out if your vehicle was returned to the used-car market as a lemon by looking at the vehicle’s title and using a free look-up service provided by AutoCheck or CARFAX.

Roadside Assistance: If you’ve ever been stuck on the side of the road you know what this is and why it’s worth having. Many new car dealers offer this as a benefit of purchasing these days and in a pinch it is nice to have.

The problem with many road side assistance programs are that you do not know what company they are using. It may be Acura Total Luxury Care Roadside you think you are calling, but it is actually a local company that they outsource to.

Many new car companies pay little attention to who they outsource their road side assistance to and you can quickly end up stuck on the side of the road for hours if you wind up with the wrong company.

I have a friend who waited for over four hours for his new car to be rescued by the new car roadside service. AAA is a reliable and powerful service that is available to both new and used car dealers for road side assistance.

In the next post, I’ll share with you the pros to buying used.

Frank Myers Auto Maxx Presents: Get Your Spring On

I’m almost giddy with anticipation.

March is here and that means spring is just around the corner. After the winter we’ve had, I think we can all shout out a collective, “Wahoo” at the thought of spring and everything that comes along with it.

I wholeheartedly agree with Robin Williams who said, “Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” That sounds like a great idea to me. A big party in the park with blossoming flowers and barefoot kids running around with ice cream all over their faces. True, it may take a little longer for Mother Nature to get her spring on but for now, a guy can dream!

Here’s a few tips to get Get Your Spring On!

Make your spring break plans now!

Plan to do something new like luxury camping at El Capitan Canyon in Los Padres National Forest where you camp in style, making both kids and mom happy! Or how about relaxing at Kiawah Island in South Carolina – a great place to golf while the family enjoys swimming, turtle watching, and biking. Feeling a little more adventurous, why not take the Grand Canyon All American Helicopter Tour or if you really want to get away, fly over to Paris? I hear the Paris Chocolate and Pastry Food Tour is a delicious way to spend a week. You’ll enjoy French gourmet specialties in the morning and walking tours in the afternoons. If these things are out of the budget, plan a staycation at home. Play tourist in your hometown and do something special, just don’t spend the whole week in front of the tube. No matter what you choose to do, make this Spring Break special by being original and intentional with your plans.

Get your spring-cleaning done early.

Why wait? Donate items you don’t need to the needy. Hire someone to wash your windows. Clean out your junk, your garage, and any area that has grown dusty over the long winter. Soon the sun will be shining in and shedding light on the state of your homestead. Imagine how much better your spring will be if you already have all of that pesky cleaning done?

Spend time outside being active.

Shake away the winter blues by getting that metabolism going. Start walking with a friend, playing tennis in the afternoon, or biking on a Saturday. Break out those rollerblades, if you dare, or why not make plans to run a marathon? Not the active type? Get outside anyway. Dine el fresco at a restaurant and then take a small stroll after dinner while window shopping on the avenue. Whatever you do, get outside and breathe in some fresh air. It’s sure to clear your head and prepare you to have a great spring.

Ok, back to work now, but this weekend, you might just see me outside taking a walk – my perfect pre-spring activity. I don’t know about you but I can’t wait to GET MY SPRING ON!
